JOINT/TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS
Trigger point injections are injections of lidocaine/Marcaine used to reduce localized ant hill-like muscle spasms often found at the base of the neck, upper back, shoulder blades, and lower back.
Joint injections are typically injected into knees, shoulders, hips, and other joints, to help reduce inflammation and pain.
During the procedure, a medical practitioner inserts a small needle into the patient’s joint/trigger point. Injections only take a few minutes and several sites may be injected on the same visit.
