  • Procedure used to treat painful areas of muscle that
    contain trigger points, or knots of muscle that form
    when muscles do not relax.
  • Trigger points may irritate the nerves around them and
    cause referred pain, or pain that is felt in another
    part of the body.
  • In this procedure, a health care professional inserts
    a small needle into the patient's trigger point.
  • With the injection, the trigger point is made inactive
    and the pain is alleviated.

    in the arms, legs, lower back, and neck.
