I've done the therapy and the trigger point injections for 10 years, near the end of 10 years the injections started putting me into flares. I could no longer tolerate the injections, I was getting 30 to 40 injections once a month. I stopped all injections for a year, and I felt better, less flares. Then my legs went numb for a several days followed by intense pain from my lower back to my feet. I have now restarted trigger point injections and therapy on my legs, feet, lower back and butt, I have bursitis in my hips, piriformis syndrome and rls on top of fibro...ugh.
All I can say it yes it helps, but i can produce flares...All one can do I try.
