Our medical staff is ready to WOW you with your trigger point injections, a quick and easy treatment for your muscle pain.
What Are The Symptoms of Muscle Injury?
Many patients resort to over-the-counter medication daily to get through the day with muscle pain and muscle injury. For a bit, it works!

What is the source of my muscle pain? Scientific studies have long shown that trigger points, which are small knots that form in the myofascial tissue that covers your muscles, often cause muscle pain. Myofascial tissue is a thin, strong, and fibrous tissue that surrounds the muscles in your body, providing support and protection to your muscles, joints, and bones. When Trigger Points form in the myofascial tissue, it can be extremely painful and chronic.
Locating and releasing your trigger points can alleviate muscle pain!
During your initial visit, our medical team at Lifestyle Medical Center will locate any trigger points that are causing you pain and discomfort. Trigger points can occur for a variety of reasons:
- Repetitive trauma
- Poor posture
- Sleep disorders
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Sedentary behavior
- Lack of movement or exercises
After your muscles experience a trigger point injury, it can cause a ripple effect throughout your entire body. A muscle affected by a trigger point will tighten and become weak. You will instinctively stop using the muscle, leading surrounding muscles to pick up the slack. This compensation for the injured muscle will lead to all surrounding areas becoming tense, stressed, and overworked.
Often we can feel pain in completely separate areas of the body, but it’s often being caused by a trigger point injury. This radiation of pain is called referred pain, and it can lead to a decreased range of motion and an increased level of discomfort. All of this unequal movement and activity within your body can throw your body out of alignment and before you know it, you have an array of pain issues, all started by a small knot in your muscle. Trigger point pain can be felt in the following areas:
- Ears (ringing in the ears)
