Trigger Point Injection

Overview
This outpatient procedure is designed to reduce or relieve the pain of trigger points. These small, tender knots can form in muscles or in the fascia (the soft, stretchy connective tissue that surrounds muscles and organs). The trigger point injection procedure takes only a few minutes to complete.

Preparation
In preparation for the procedure, the patient is positioned comfortably. The physician presses and pinches the skin to locate the trigger point. Once it has been identified, the physician cleanses the overlying skin. A topical anesthetic may be used to temporarily numb the skin.

Medication Injected
The physician carefully inserts a needle through the skin and into the trigger point. The physician injects an anesthetic mixture into the trigger point. This causes the trigger point to relax. If the trigger point does not relax completely after the first injection, the physician may adjust the needle’s position and give additional injections.

End of Procedure
When the injection is complete, the physician removes the needle. A small bandage may be placed over the injection site. The patient may be encouraged to stretch and move the muscle after the injection.

I have been a patient of Dr. Igor's for 2-3 years now. He is one of the best pain doctors I have been to since becoming sick 12 years ago. He listens to the issues I have and works out a pain management plan with me. He takes the time to explain what is going on and makes me understand. He also has a great sense of humor. I'm so happy to have finally found a great doctor.

Dr. Igor has done a wonderful job of meeting my needs with pain management. He is very careful with me concerning medications. Although medicine is a necessary evil, he makes sure that my pain management is manageable without "overdoing" the drugs. He is very thorough and does a great job with back procedures. I'm so thankful to have him for my pain management doctor.

I have a lot of issues with pain in my hips and back. I have always been very fearful of going to doctors until I was sent to Dr. Igor Smelyansky. He has been so wonderful to me and always makes me feel like the only patient he has. Thank you.

I have known Dr. Igor for 3 or 4 years and am so pleased with his work as a doctor. He is a super doctor. I would be very unhappy if I were told that Dr. Igor was not going to be my doctor. He is a very pleasant person to have as my doctor. I hope that he never stops being by doctor. Thank you Dr. Igor.

I have been treated for my lower back pain by Dr. Igor for three years at Roanne County and Crossville. The injections he has given me have greatly helped. Overall he has taken excellent care of me.
