What injection is most effective for trigger points?
What injection is most effective for trigger points? Evidence-Based Answer: Dry needling or injections with botulinum toxin, physiologic saline, lidocaine, or lidocaine with a steroid all appear about equally effective in trigger point treatment (SOR: B, RCTs). Clearly, dry needling would be the least expensive.
