Any thoughts on NPs doing trigger point injections? I am wondering if alabama NPs are approved to do this, and how do you go about getting approval?

At least in primary care settings here in California, our NPs do them all the time. If done right, they're easy and our patients LOVE THEM!

I have never had to get any type of special approval to do trigger points. They are very easy to perform and yes the patients love them! You could always check with your BON
