My drs were great with the trigger point injections. If you are worried about the pain of the needle have them do what they did for me, they numbed the skin where they were placing the needle. For me the injections provided such a needed relief from the pain it was well worth it and my personal opinion is that they didnt hurt all that bad. Compared to the pain i was having the injections were nothing. I wish you luck and hope you find relief after.
