You may have heard that trigger-point injections are a very effective way to treat musculoskeletal pain. Indeed, trigger-point injection therapy is often administered by a medical specialist to relieve pain in the neck, arm, or lower back, as well as other areas of the body.
When you receive this treatment, the practitioner administers a steroid and anesthetic solution directly into a muscle knot – an area where the muscle is tight and painful, called a trigger point. As with any medical procedure, you want a medical practitioner who has experience in performing trigger-point injection treatments in order to prevent complications and to ensure you receive the maximum benefit.
Let’s talk about how to go about finding a skilled medical specialist who can deftly perform this pain-relief injection for you, and introduce you to a team of doctors who successfully conduct this procedure on a regular basis.
Ask Friends for Recommendations
If you know anyone who has had trigger-point injections, ask who their practitioners were. Inquire about their experiences: Were they satisfied with their results? Were there any complications?
Find Specialists Who Are Near You
You can also start the search process by looking in your medical coverage’s list of practitioners who address neck, arm, leg, or back pain, or other types of muscle pain. Search online for practices in your area that offer trigger-point injection therapy. Keep in mind that both pain-management doctors and chiropractors can often provide this treatment.
Check Out Patient Reviews
Once you have one or more names of doctors or specialists you’re considering, look through websites that enable patients to post about their experiences with the doctor or specialist. You’ll find out how other people felt about their experience with the practitioner.
A trigger-point injection practitioner’s website itself may have an area where they display their patients’ feedback, so look for that as well. This shows confidence on the practitioner’s part, because they have had so many satisfied clients that they want to share with potential clients what others have said.
