Eradicating muscle knots in order to improve function.

For Solutions to Your Trigger Points

If you are experiencing tight or spasming muscles in your neck or back, the underlying cause could be trigger points. These myofascial pain cycles can be difficult to treat with traditional methods like massage therapy or foam rolling. At Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine, we recommend Trigger Point Injections as an effective solution to release the pressure, spasms, and pain associated with trigger points in the neck, upper back, lower back, or any other affected region.
Trigger points are small areas of muscle contraction that can become stuck due to the presence of adhesions and scar tissue. These knots can often be felt when touching the muscles of the neck, upper and lower back, and are a common cause of myofascial pain. The pain resulting from trigger points is usually intense, sharp, and persistent until they are alleviated by methods such as foam rolling, massage therapy, or injection.


Trigger Points can cause the following symptoms:

⦁ Headaches or migraines
⦁ radiating pain
⦁ sharp shooting pain
⦁ painful breathing
⦁ loss of sleep
Failure to release trigger point pressure in time can lead to significant muscle imbalances, preventing them from functioning normally, and ultimately causing postural problems and joint pain. Massage therapy can provide temporary relief from pain and tightness caused by these tiny spasms when they become chronic. Chiropractic treatment may take longer to be effective and may even be less comfortable.

Trigger Point Injection (TPI) Therapy: For Fast Relief of Trigger Points

To achieve a fast and thorough reduction of trigger points, the most effective method is through trigger point injections. These injections help to relax muscles, break up scar tissue, and restore normal muscle function, leading to a more balanced soft tissue and less pressure on the skeleton. With this balance, chiropractic adjustments to the neck, upper and lower back are more successful. Additionally, trigger point injections can improve the comfort and effectiveness of rehabilitation exercises by enhancing muscle balance.

Benefits of TPI Therapy

⦁ Helps soothe tight muscles
⦁ Stops muscle spasms
⦁ Breaks up scar tissue
⦁ Dissolves trigger points
⦁ Improves chiropractic & rehab results
Patients suffering from chronic trigger points that are unresponsive to massage therapy or foam rolling can find immediate relief with trigger point injections. It is recommended for patients with myofascial pain syndromes in the neck, upper or lower back to include trigger point injections as part of their therapy regimen.

Where Can You Receive Trigger Point Injections?

⦁ Back Pain and/or Tightness
