What are Trigger Points?
Trigger points are localized tender spots in the muscles often detected as
lumps or “knots.” Trigger points form when a muscle is injured, or overly
tense. Chronic inflammation in the muscle and physical/emotional stress
all contribute to “knots” and formation of scar tissue which may be
helped with TPIs (trigger point injection). Trigger points can also form
through time by the process of wear and tear on the muscle. Trigger
points occur when normal, perpendicular muscle fibers get tangled and
distorted out of their uniform pattern. Trigger points are felt as a taut
band of inflamed muscle fiber and are painful when pressed.
What Happens during Trigger Point
In the TPI procedure, our health care professional inserts a small needle
into the patient’s trigger point. The injections at our clinic contain a local
anesthetic called Lidocaine or completely natural Sarapin. With the
injection, the trigger point is made inactive and the pain is alleviated. The
advantage of the natural plant botanicals like Sarapin is that they have a
history of over 70 years of demonstrated safe, nontoxic usage, they are
not drugs and have no known side effects and are non-toxic.

When is Trigger Point Injection (TPI) Used?
TPI is used to treat many muscle groups, especially those in the neck,
upper back, rotator cuff and lower back. It can also be used for
tendonitis, bursitis or joint pain in the arms and legs. In addition, TPI can
be used to treat fibromyalgia and tension headaches. TPI also is used to
alleviate myofascial pain syndrome (chronic pain involving tissue that
surrounds muscle) that does not respond to other treatments.

How Long Does it Take to Heal?
We have found that a person responds much quicker when TPIs are done
in conjunction with acupuncture treatments. This has been found to yield
better results than with TPI or acupuncture alone. Injections are
performed at Pinnacle Integrative Health and usually take just a few
minutes. Several sites may be injected in one visit. It depends on the
individual case, some people’s pain will resolve after their first visit, but
usually it will take 8-12 visits.
