Trigger points are what most people call ‘knots’ in muscles- small areas of tightness located within a muscle fibre. Trigger points can cause discomfort, tightness and pain referral. Trigger point injection therapy involves injecting a small amount of sugar solution and anaesthetic directly into the trigger points. This can release the trigger points, allowing muscle to relax and decrease pain & referral associated with the trigger point.
Prolotherapy is an injection technique to create new growth of tendons and ligaments (proliferation) to treat tendon, ligament and joint injuries. A concentrated sugar solution mixed with anesthetic will be injected, bringing blood flow and healing factors to the area. The first appointment includes a thorough history & physical exam of the areas of injury, followed by the injections. For best results, we recommend 3-6 visits spaced a few weeks apart. Areas of injection offered include: shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, knees, ankles, feet, and more.
Neural therapy is an injection technique that involves injection of anesthetic (lidocaine or procaine) into scars, scar tissue, ligaments, trigger points, and autonomic ganglia with the intention of decreasing pain, restoring optimal autonomic nervous system communication, and improving function.
