Trigger Point Injections in Bradenton
If you’re like most people, you’ve probably fallen asleep one evening as usual but woken up to find a particularly sensitive and sore area around your back, shoulders, or sides. Few things can throw off your day quite like having a small but painful knot like one of these.
These knots tend to go away on their own. Maybe it’s an hour later or even by the next day. These sore spots typically don’t last for much longer than 24 hours.
But when they do end up plaguing you for much longer, the pain can actually be quite distracting and persistent. It’s in cases like these that you may be suffering from what’s known as a “trigger point” – a knot of tightened muscle that consistently irritates the nerves surrounding it.
These knots can vary in size and may be as small as a pinhead to as large as a pea and can pack quite a punch. The nerves that become irritated can cause what’s known as referred pain which may actually be felt in a completely different part of the body.
This condition can be particularly annoying, especially when the symptoms persist over long periods of time. Luckily, we at Natural Healing Arts Medical Center offer one of the best treatments for these cumbersome knots – Trigger Point Injections.
These small and easily administered shots help the tightened muscles relax and, in most cases, a single treatment session is all that’s needed to bring about sustained and long-lasting relief. All in all, this particular treatment shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to perform.
