At Inner Balance Acupuncture, in Westminster, Colorado, we've been getting amazing results with trigger-point injections. The main function of trigger-point injections is to relief pain, muscle tension and inflammation. These injections can be a great alternative for patients not wanting wanting or not ready to get a cortisone injection. Most patients experience relief from their symptoms after one injection. More severe conditions may require a series of injections. Trigger-point injections may be beneficial for muscle spasms, joint pain relief and mobility.
