Treatments can vary based on pain origin and other related conditions, but in general some of our minimally invasive, effective muscle pain and injury treatments include:
Trigger Point & Injection Therapies
Depending on specific pain sources, trigger point injections and other injection therapies can help relax a spasming muscle, reduce inflammation/swelling, loosen up the area, and provide pain relief. These injections are typically quick and effective in providing relief.
Physical therapy is essential in helping work through an injury and retraining the injured muscle to heal strongly. It can also help build strength for weak muscle related conditions.
There are also medications that can be helpful in reducing both pain and inflammation in the area. These often work best with additional treatment therapies.
