Risk Table--trigger points

    Default Risk Table--trigger points

    Just a quick query to see where others would place the decision to perform trigger point injections in risk table? I am on the fence as to whether it is low to moderate....

    Thanks so much

    I would say moderate.

    You most likely have at least 1 chronic with mild exacerbation, progression, or side effects of treatment. As far as the trigger points themselves I think they would be along the same lines as IV fluids w/additives. They are invasive and generally involve a prescription drug.

    Just my opinion,
