After an area of concern is found, medication is delivered by injection.
This provides pain relief while reducing inflammation.
Trauma, arthritis, sports, overuse, occupational injuries and surgical injuries cause chronic nerve pain.
Perineural Injection Therapy (PIT) is safe and effective. It is widely used for patients who are not able to receive joint replacement surgery, stem cell injections or PRP.
How does Perineural Injection Works?
New tissue is applied in weak areas, meanwhile, the bodies natural healing mechanisms are stimulated.
A direct injection to the injury site simultaneously “tricks” the body into repairing again. The mild inflammatory response caused by the injection also encourages the growth of new normal ligaments or tendon fibers. This response tightens the weakened structure.
Additional treatments allow a gradual buildup of tissue that subsequently strengthens the area.
What Areas of the Body Can be Treated?
- Back pain.
- Shoulder pain including rotator cuff tears.
- Elbow pain.
- Foot pain including plantar fasciitis.
- Ankle pain or instability.
- IT band syndrome.
- Piriformis syndrome,
- Temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ),
- Musculoskeletal pain or injury.
Pain can radiate from the trigger point itself to an area around the trigger point. This occurs when pressure is applied to the trigger point.
Trigger points are focal areas of inflammation and spasms in skeletal muscle. Pain can radiate from the trigger point to an area around the trigger point.
The most common areas are behind the sholders and back. Neck pain, shoulder pain, and headaches are typical symptoms.
When Is Trigger Point Injection Used?
TPI is used to treat a variety of muscle groups including arms, legs, lower back, and neck.
In addition, TPI is used to treat fibromyalgia and tension headaches. When other treatments are not working, the technique is used to alleviate chronic pain involving tissue that surrounds muscles.
What Happens During a Trigger Point Injection?
During the procedure, a health care professional inserts a small needle into the patient’s trigger point. The injection contains a local anesthetic or saline, and may include a corticosteroid.
The trigger point is made inactive and the pain is alleviated once the injection is applied.
Often, a brief course of treatment results in relief. Several trigger point sites can be treated in one session. When patients have a drug related alergy, a dry-needle technique (without medication) is used.
Is Trigger Point Injection right for me?
Are you having muscle pains than are not improved with other treatment, including pain medication and physical therapy?
Trigger point injection is for you.
For painful trigger points, trigger point injections are the soloution.
This treatment is typically used for conditions like fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome.
