In our office we have LPN’s working in our office who are giving trigger point injections under a physician order. I don’t think this is correct. Can an MA, LPN or RN give a trigger point injection?
A trigger point injection is a procedure that can be administered by a physician, a PA or NP if it within their state scope of practice. An MA, LPN or RN cannot give a trigger point injection.
