I hate needles too. Especially the thought of them in my back. Yow...

I have never had tenderpoint injections. But thought I would post because I agree with you on the needle part.

I hope that this works for you, let us know how it goes.

I think I had these and am still not sure if they worked as I was dumb and triggered a flareup right after I got them.  The needle wasn't so big.  I was very sore the first couple of days, but felt better before I overdid it.

I haev had trigger point injections, and they definitely helped. Especially when they used botox. Amazing relief.
