Trigger Point Injections
Trigger Point Injections (TPI) is a procedure used to treat painful areas of muscle that contain trigger points, or knots of muscle that form when muscles do not relax. Many times, such knots can be felt under the skin. Trigger points may irritate the nerves around them and cause referred pain, or pain that is felt in another part of the body.
During the TPI procedure, our board-certified physician inserts a small needle containing a local anesthetic into the patient’s trigger point. With the injection, the trigger point is made inactive and the pain is alleviated. Usually, a brief course of treatment will result in sustained relief. Injections usually take just a few minutes and several sites may be injected in one visit.

The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.
This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
