Resolving Chronic Pain With Cortisone-Free Trigger Point Injections in Hopkins

breathe easy

Trigger points are hyperirritable spots in tight bands of muscles, and can often be felt as a tender knot. They can restrict movement and cause muscle weakness, along with referred or radiating pain into other parts of the body.

Left untreated, trigger points can progress into a variety of chronic pain conditions.

We invite you to attend a free 45-minute class taught by Emily Kratochwill, CNP, a certified nurse practitioner at Wellspring Health Center in Hopkins. You will learn the causes of trigger points, what an integrative approach to treating them looks like, and why cortisone-free trigger point injections play an important role in recovery.
