There are a few things you can do to make your trigger point injection procedure go better:
- Medication changes. You may be asked to stop taking certain medications, such as blood thinners (Coumadin), before the procedure. Be sure to check with your doctor before stopping any medications.
- Medication list. On the day of the procedure, bring a list of all your current medications to the appointment. This includes over-the-counter medications and vitamins.
- X-rays or other images. Bring these on the day of the procedure as well.
- Medical history. Be sure to tell your doctor about any history of allergic reaction to medications.
