Low back pain is a fact of life for many Americans today. It can easily reduce your ability to perform many functions and will often limit your quality of life. Instead of merely resigning to a life of pain and low levels of activity, there are several ways it can be treated – enabling you to enjoy life again.
Trigger Point Injection (Intramuscular). Muscles in the back can tense up and form knots. While these will usually ease up after a while, sometimes they do not go away. This constant tension can cause pain in other parts of the body, too.
A trigger point injection is an injection into the muscle tissue at the place of the knot. The injection is made up of a numbing agent for quick pain relief, and an anti-inflammatory steroid, which is for long-term relief. It is a quick procedure that will usually not take more than five minutes.
Lumbar Facet Joint Injection. This procedure is designed to treat pain that you have in your lower back, upper leg, and buttocks. Most likely, the problem is caused by a lumbar facet joint.
