Where can I get trigger point injections?

Postby S-E » Thu Nov 03, 2011 12:25 pm

Hello all. I’m new and was hoping for a little help if possible?

I’m currently getting trigger point injections once a month at a private clinic in Bristol. I live in Wolverhampton and I can’t keep travelling like that, it makes me ill. It’s also pricey for me as I’m on benefits.

Is it possible to get them on the NHS?

Where should I look to find someone closer to home who can administer the injections?

I’ve heard of Pain Clinic’s but I don’t know how to find one in my area.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Phoebe

Not sure if you can get them on the NHS :dunno: the best person to ask would be your GP or your nurse as that is where you will have to get the injections done. :goodluck1:

Paying for trigger point injections is very pricey concidering you need constant ongoing treatent for them to be of benefit cause as soon as you stop the muscles will just tighten back up so...

if the injections are too pricey maybe see if you can get a physio to do hands on trigger point therapy? just a thought if you cannot get this on the NHS

Your best of going to a pain clinic (as your GP they will refer you to nearest hospital) as i know they do these there as some one i know had trigger point injections. They may not do it as regular as you need it tho, being NHS they leave you a while inbetween treatments

Have you got another Gp who you could see in your surgery? if not i would think about changing, it really does make a big difference to have an understanding gp with fibro, especially as its an on going condition.

Hi Phoebe I think its a postcode lottery regarding waiting lists, it depends on your surgery as to whether they have a provider or are willing to refer you to a provider :dunno: :dunno: :dunno: the only way you can know is to ask your GP :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: as for no exercise I'm in the same boat but have recently been shown some 'chair' exercises, havent got past the warm up yet but at least I'm doing more than I was.

The lady was part of an x-pert diabetis program and was a physio, she obtained some 'therabands' to help, which are essentially rubber bands of differing resistance which you use instead of stretching your muscles past a comfortable condition, all done sitting down!!!
