What Are Trigger Point Injections?

What Are Trigger Point Injections? – Chiropractor near Nesconset

Have you ever heard the expression that your muscles can have “knots”? As peculiar as the expression may be, it can be a very painful experience. Muscle “knots”, or trigger points, are when the muscle fibers are consistently tight, even when the body is relaxed, which can cause pain and discomfort. This pain and discomfort can be felt on the area itself, an adjacent muscle group, or even another part of the body that isn’t in close proximity. Dr. Raymond Semente, our chiropractor near Nesconset, offers trigger point injections for patients who continue to feel pain from these ailments.
