Trigger points are pressure points that have developed within the muscle. They are bands of muscles that have become too tight and feel as a painful area within the muscle of the body or the spine. When most people talk about having a “knot” in their neck or back, this is what they are referring to. These trigger points, or knots, can result in pain in the direct area, referred pain, muscle weakness, and restricted movement and flexibility of the spine.
Our team at Advanced Spinal Care & Rehabilitation specializes in treating this condition through trigger point injection therapy. These injections are always performed by a medical doctor, with treatment only taking a few minutes.
