Patient Comments (2)
in Oceanside, CA |
Finally found a Doctor who listens! Dr. Cottrell is a nothing but an expert concerning back injuries.I have been very happy with her attention to my issues.
I went in for trigger point injections for severe myofascial pain. She grabbed the needle but the proceeded to tell me she could not administer trigger point injections unless I could reach around to my back and physically point them out. I have so many (she even said I probably have 14) and it is near impossible for me to find them without a long stick to reach them. I've never seen or heard of trigger point injections being administered that way. I left with one injection and zero relief.
