not relax. These knots can irritate the nerves around them and cause pain either focally or referred. A very small needle is inserted into each trigger point to inject a small amount of local anesthetic. This causes the muscle to automatically release, thus reducing pain right away. People with many different types of pain can benefit from this procedure, including fibromyalgia, whiplash, headaches, and other types of chronic pain. This treatment can be done in as quick as 15 minutes per session.
