How long does the treatment last?
The duration of the effects of trigger point injection (TPI) can vary depending on the individual, the location of the injection, and the severity of the muscle tension or pain being treated. In general, TPI can provide immediate relief of pain and muscle tension, but the duration of the relief can vary.
For some individuals, the effects of TPI can last for several weeks, months or forever. However, for others, the relief may only last for a few days. In some cases, TPI may need to be repeated multiple times to achieve longer-lasting relief.
Body posture, proper exercises and recommended work outs can help to prevent future head and neck muscles pain.
To maximize the benefits of TPI, other therapies may be recommended; such as physical therapy or stretching, to address the underlying causes of the muscle tension or pain and prevent it from recurring.
These are some of the muscles that may need to be injected:
