Trigger Point Injection


 

Effective relief for trigger points

This is the most effective treatment for relieving trigger points and providing prompt, long-lasting relief from pain and other symptoms. Trigger points are clinically defined as “discrete, focal hyperirritable spots found in any taut band of skeletal muscle."

These knots are painful and often produce throbbing pains, tenderness, motor dysfunction and involuntary reactions (twitches) to the pain due to the trigger point. Dr. Glaser injects a local anesthetic, saline, dextrose and/or cortisone into the trigger point to help relax the muscle and provide relief to the painful areas of muscle that contain trigger points, or knots of muscle.

We serve the residents of Encino, Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Sherman Oaks, Studio City and the nearby communities.
