These points can also irritate nerves around them, causing pain in other areas of the body. A needle containing a local anesthetic, Sarapin and sometimes a steroid as well is inserted into the trigger point to make it inactive and relieve pain. The injection procedure takes just a few minutes to administer and is considered safe for most patients, with only minimal side effects. Aside from relieving pain, trigger point infections also loosen the muscles that cause the pain, helping with the rehabilitation process..
