Trigger Point Therapy in Fairfield

Trigger Point Therapy at Mecca Integrated Medical Center

Trigger Point Therapy in Fairfield: According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, trigger points are “hyperirritable spots located in a taut band of skeletal muscle. They can cause regional, persistent pain that can decrease range of motion in the affected muscles.” Trigger points are tiny knots that can develop in muscles when they are overworked or injuried. Common trigger point areas can include the neck, shoulders, upper and lower back, and they can result in headaches, joint pain, and low back pain.

At Mecca Integrated Medical Center, Dr. Rosalie Curreri performs Trigger Point Injections, which relieves symptoms associated with inflammation and degenerative processes due to acute trauma (fractures, sprains, lacerations, and tendonitis) and other repetitive or overuse injuries. She uses a homeopathic imflammation-regulating drug (IRD), which is injected into one or several of the muscles at trigger point sights.

One of the Most Effective Treatment Modalities

The AAFP states that “trigger-point injection has been shown to be one of the most effective treatment modalities to inactivate trigger points and provide prompt relief of symptoms. ” Trigger point therapy is a powerful aspect of our pain management therapy program. Done in a series of injections, spaced out weekly, trigger point therapy is covered by most insurances.

If you are interested in exploring if trigger point injections would work for you, call our office to schedule and consultation with one of our doctors.
