Trigger Point Injections Q & A

Cornerstone Integrated Healthcare

What are trigger point injections?

Trigger point injections use a plant-based solution with analgesic properties to treat nerve and muscle pain. They're a safe and effective pain management option because they work like a nerve blocker.

At Cornerstone Integrated Healthcare, Dr. Price and his team use SarapinⓇ, which acts on your sensory nerves without affecting other nerves, soft tissues, or body systems. Physicians have administered these injections for the last 70 years, and no one has ever experienced an adverse event.

What conditions can trigger point injections treat?

Dr. Price and his team use trigger point injections to heal trigger points throughout the body. Trigger points are muscle areas that become inflamed and form knots. They can cause pain around the trigger point, but can also refer to muscle fibers tightening then shortening, pulling on bones, tendons, and ligaments.

Trigger points can happen to anyone, but they’re often associated with certain conditions. Trigger point injections can, therefore, reduce the symptoms associated with:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Migraines and headaches

Trigger points are often found in the shoulders and upper back, and lead to neck and shoulder pain, as well as headaches. If you manipulate the area, you can sometimes feel a palpable nodule at the trigger point.

How do trigger point injections work?

Trigger point injections are given directly to your trigger point area, affecting certain nerves and interfering with the transmission of pain signals. Although Sarapin is an analgesic, it doesn’t impact other body systems like over-the-counter pain relievers and opiates.

Instead, these injections mostly impact your C-type nerve fibers, reducing pain and inflammation, resulting in relaxed trigger points and less pain.
