Homeopathic Trigger Point Injection Therapy
Trigger points are essentially knots that may form in a patient’s muscle fibers. These knots are capable of causing tension, muscle spasms, and severe pain. Discomfort stemming from trigger points is often found in areas away from the actual trigger point itself, since the pain may be transferred through nerve pathways to different locales in the body.
Trigger points may be effectively treated with homeopathic injection therapy, during which a therapeutic solution comprised of several homeopathic remedies is introduced to the body. These injections differ from traditional therapies in that they do not treat the symptoms of a patient’s musculoskeletal condition directly. Instead, they revive the body’s natural healing processes so that it may fight off pain and inflammation naturally.
Homeopathic trigger point injection therapy may be used in place of, or in conjunction with, other traditional pain remedies. Dr. Lambert typically combines the homeopathic injection with lidocaine, a local anesthetic that reduces pain and helps localize the trigger point due to it’s almost immediate analgesic effect. The procedure is minimally invasive and is generally performed using a very small needle, minimizing the patient’s discomfort.
