We are pleased to announce that we now offer trigger point injecting for treatment of muscle pain and knots. Dr Anne Nicholson is a Specialist Anaesthetic Doctor and is now treating patients at Brighton Plastic Surgery on Monday afternoons.
Trigger point injecting also known as muscle knot injecting treats painful muscle knots that result in surrounding muscle spasm. Once the muscle knot is located Dr Nicholson works by injecting local anaesthetic directly into the knot, releasing the the spasm within 1-2 minutes. The local anaesthetic works by blocking transmission of nerves, and allowing blood flow back into the area. The area is massaged after injection to enable maximum effect and allowing the surrounding protective spasm to release and relax. Treatment generally provides long lasting effects.
It is important to identify if you have muscle knots before seeking trigger point injections. Muscle practitioners such as physios, osteopaths, massseurs, myotherapists, homeopaths and GPS can all diagnose these but they can also be self diagnosed.
A trigger point injection treatment costs $250.00 (including injections).
