Trigger Point and Joint Injections Q & A

Beneficial Health Medical Center

What is a trigger point injection?

A trigger point injection is a pain solution for serious muscle pain. When muscles are constantly in a state of tension or they spasm regularly, it can cause intense pain. That pain then causes additional muscle spasms and you’re in an endless cycle of pain.

A trigger point injection is a type of muscle block that's injected directly injected into the affected muscles. This solution may be used when methods like chiropractic care and therapeutic massage aren't able to provide sufficient pain relief. Trigger point injections can force the muscles to relax, which then interrupts the pain cycle.

How long does it take for trigger point injections to work?

It can vary by patient. Many patients get relief right away, but it typically takes two to three days for the full effects of the trigger point injections to be obvious.

How long do trigger point injections last?

This depends on several factors, including your exact condition and the severity of your pain. The medications in the trigger point injections can help you stay pain free for three to six months.

What are joint pain injections?

Joint pain injections are used to alleviate pain in areas like the hip joint. When you suffer from joint pain, especially in weight bearing joint like the knees or the hips, it's hard to avoid making the pain worse because you need to use those joints for regular movement.

Joint pain injections can allow you to move normally without pain again. These injections include several medications that both numb the area and provide relief over time. Joint pain injections can reduce inflammation and alleviate pain and swelling around the joints.

How long does it take for joint injections to work?

Some patients get immediate relief, but it usually takes a few days to notice the results of a joint injection. It usually takes a week at the most for the injections to give you pain relief.

How long will joint injections last?

This varies by patient and their injury. Some patients have relief for days while others have pain relief for months. When the effects of the initial series of injections wears off, you can return to Beneficial Health Medical Center to get another injection.
