One of the key goals of our physiatrist is to address your pain and promote quick, effective, safe relief for it. To do so, our office seeks out the most advanced and state-of-the-art methods; ones that have been proven to work. Among them is our Rockville Centre trigger point injection.
Muscle pain does not always respond to medication, and each person will be unique in terms of what works for. But one thing is for certain: severe pain can make it difficult or even impossible to go about your normal daily routine and work. You may not even be able to enjoy quality family or leisure time. Our Rockville Centre trigger point injection (TPI) is administered directly in the trigger point, where the pain is concentrated, such as when you feel as if you have a knot in your muscles. What does the injection contain? There is a local anesthetic and typically corticosteroid medication. The goal is to neutralize the pain by making the trigger point inactive. Fortunately, our Rockville Centre trigger point injection does not take too long. Usually, you will only need a few minutes for the entire process. And if you have more than one trigger point, you will be pleased to know that they can be done as part of the same session. Pain in most parts of the body can be addressed using TPI. And if you suffer from pain due to fibromyalgia, it can be helpful there, as well. Even chronic tension headaches can be treated with this method.
So, at this point you may be asking if TPI is the right choice for you. And if you have muscle pain or any sort, the answer may very well be yes. In order to know for sure, schedule an appointment at our office. A brief consultation will answer your specific questions and point toward whether you should proceed with TPI.
