Trigger point injections are a pain management treatment that involves injecting a local anesthetic, sometimes combined with a steroid medication, into a trigger point to relax muscles and relieve pain.

A trigger point is a tender area of muscle that develops when the tissue surrounding the muscle, called fascia (or myofascia) contracts and sticks to itself. A trigger point is often identified as a “knot,” a bump under the skin that can cause pain in the area where it has developed.

In some cases, a trigger point can even cause pain in another area of the body when it affects a nearby nerve; this is called referred pain.
