Your child can return to normal activities the next day.
You may find that your child's pain gets worse initially. Your child's doctor may order a small amount of pain medication for the first two days until the injected medication begins to work. This occurs because placing a needle into an irritated muscle causes more irritation.
People often report increased mobility of the muscle right away, which is a positive sign.
The pain should begin to decrease about two days after injection.
About three days after the injection, we ask you to call our office to let us know how your child is doing. You may also call us for questions or concerns at 1-513-636-7768.
Your child can return to normal activities the following day.
