• Trigger Point Injection (TPI)

    Trigger point injections are given to patients who suffer from muscle pain or spasms just about anywhere in the body. Dr. Ring or Dr. Olowe will decide if it is safe, but most of the time they are able to deliver medicine to the painful area. Often these painful areas are located in the neck, head, lumbar, upper back, hip, knee, wrist, elbow, shoulder, and other soft tissue areas. Trigger points can help to relax the muscles and also make movement easier. Trigger point injections are not painful, and may be repeated. Fibromyalgia ofter causes many painful areas throughout the body. TPI for fibromyalgia patients is very helpful.
