Trigger points are pressure points, which have developed within the muscle. They are bands of muscles that have become too tight and may be felt as a painful area within the muscle of the body or the spine. When people commonly speak of having a “knot” in their neck or back they are referring to these. Trigger points, or knots, can result in pain in the direct or surrounding area, muscle weakness and restricted spinal movement and flexibility.
Our medical doctors at Pure Health, Aurora, Illinois, specialize in the treatment of this condition through trigger point injection therapy. These injections are always performed by a medical doctor, and only take just a matter of minutes. The medication used is an anti-inflammatory called SARAPIN. It is plant-based, non-toxic, and does not have harmful side effects unlike other similar treatments, such as Corticosteroids, which can damage or weaken tendons, cartilages or bones.
