Trigger Point Injections (TPI)

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.

In the TPI procedure, a small needle is inserted into the patient's trigger point. The injection contains Lidocaine, a local anesthetic (numbing medication), and it works by blocking nerve signals in your body. 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.


TPI is used to treat many muscle groups, especially those in the arms, legs, lower back, and neck. In addition, TPI can be used to treat fibromyalgia and tension headaches. The technique is also used to alleviate myofascial pain syndrome (chronic pain involving tissue that surrounds muscle).

Testimonial

Last week I hobbled into Dr. Chism's office in a great deal of pain; after my treatment I walked out with no pain. I then went off and went to dinner with friends and had a wonderful evening.
