Trigger Point Injections
Trigger Point Injections (TPI) are administered to relieve muscle pain, spasms and discomfort caused by a variety of conditions. No down time is required after trigger point injections are administered.
Supartz is administered in a series of injections to help reduce inflammation and joint pain, particularly in the knees. Results from supartz injections usually occur within 3-5 treatments. No down time is required after treatment.
Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that reduces pain in the area of the body that’s injected. Commonly used to identify and reduce lower back pain, lidocaine injections take effect in about 90 seconds. No down time is required after treatment.
Kenalog is often administered to manage chronic joint or muscle pain caused by arthritis. By reducing the body’s auto-immune response to certain diseases, kenalog injections may also be used to reduce swelling caused by allergic disorders. No down time is required after treatment.
Sphenopalatine Ganglion Nerve Blocks
The nerve block we administer is in the form of a nasal spray that helps reduce or relieve facial or headache pain. Chronic headaches may require a 4 week treatment plan for best results. SPG Block starts relieving pain within 10 minutes for most patients.
