Trigger Point Injections

Side Effects of Trigger Point Injections

As with many medical treatments, trigger point injections do have the potential for side effects and complications. Patients should call their doctor if, after the procedure, they develop a high fever (above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit), have increased pain, swelling or tenderness, or develop a skin irritation, increased redness, or warmth, burning or itching around the injection site.
