Effective Treatment for Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Chronic Muscle Tension

Are you suffering from chronic muscle pain or myofascial pain syndrome?

Introduction

Trigger Point Injections offer a proven solution for chronic muscle pain sufferers, especially those dealing with myofascial pain syndrome and chronic muscle tension. At Central Florida Interventional Pain Clinic in Ocala, FL, we specialize in providing effective pain relief through this minimally invasive procedure.

What Are Trigger Point Injections?

Trigger point injections are a common treatment for reducing muscle pain associated with myofascial pain syndrome and chronic muscle tension. The procedure involves injecting a small amount of anesthetic and steroid medication directly into the trigger points, which are painful knots of muscle that form when muscles do not relax. This helps to reduce pain and improve muscle function.
