Trigger point injections for myofascial pain

Record ID 32014000374
Authors' recommendations: Trigger point injection (TPI) therapy is used for the treatment of myofascial pain syndrome, which is characterized by trigger points or knots of muscles that fail to relax. The goal of TPI therapy is to deliver local anesthetic, steroids, botulinum toxin, saline, or simply a needle into the trigger point and thereby relieve pain and improve range of motion of the affected muscle.
