Trigger Point Injections
Many times, the pain that one feels in the neck or back is really related to muscle pain or muscle spasm, also known as myofascial pain.

Kennedy, began to develop a comprehensive approach to managing myofascial pain, “the Trigger Point Manual.” Some 5 decade later and through a number of revisions, “the Trigger Point Manual” continues to be one of the definitive texts on myofascial pain. Trigger point injections can be administered easily in an office setting using a variety of medications, most commonly local anesthetic with or without Traumeel, a proprietary homeopathic medication.
