Trigger point injections are used along with other types of non-invasive treatments to help improve patients’ health and activity levels. Trigger points are hyperirritable spots in tight bands of muscles, often felt as knots, which cause discomfort and referred or radiating pain, while restricting movement and causing muscle weakness. Many ailments are associated with trigger points, including tension headaches, tinnitus, temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ), and low back pain.
Safely Treat Knee and Back Pain
At Hill Country Physical Medicine, back surgery is not considered a reasonable option, because of the possibility of failed back surgery syndrome. Fortunately, a solution that doesn’t carry the complications and risks of back surgery is the wearing of a knee or spinal brace. Bracing recommendations are offered for a variety of ailments. A knee brace might be prescribed for a patient with an ACL tear, or to reduce the pain and disabling effects of osteoarthritis. A spinal brace can be used to reduce movement, provide extra support, keep the spine in a fixed position, and even treat particular types of spinal deformity. Spinal bracing can be used to treat a chronic disease or condition such as arthritis or an injury, such as whiplash. It can also promote proper and safe healing after an accident or surgery, by providing back support.
