Medication Injections

About this deal
Injections can be trigger point injections, or injections into your joints to help relieve pain. Trigger points are focal areas of muscle spasm, often located in the upper back and shoulder areas and can be used to treat a number of conditions including fibromyalgia, tension headache, and myofascial pain syndrome.
Description
Include any kind of injection required. Can be intramuscular, subcutaneous, intravenous, and intradermal injection.

Trigger points are focal areas of spasm and inflammation in skeletal muscle. The rhomboid and trapezius back muscles, located in the upper back and behind the shoulder areas, are a common site of trigger points. Trigger points in these areas can cause neck pain, shoulder pain, and headache. In addition to the upper spine, trigger points can also occur in the low back or less commonly in the extremities.

Benefits
If you are suffering from debilitating pain, trigger point injections or corticosteroid injections can be beneficial and can potentially help relive it.
How It Works
A short needle is used to inject a drug into the tissue layer between the skin and the muscle. Medication given this way is usually absorbed more slowly than if injected into a vein, sometimes over a period of 24 hours.
A trigger point injection (TPI) is an injection that is given directly into the trigger point for pain management. The injection may be an anesthetic such as lidocaine (Xylocaine) or bupivacaine (Marcaine), a mixture of anesthetics, or a corticosteroid (cortisone medication) alone or mixed with lidocaine.
