Trigger Point Injections are a local intramuscular injection technique of lidocaine and saline into tight muscle bands or trigger points, that help restore normal muscle function, range of motion, as well as break the cycle of referred pain. This helps to treat tension headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, back pain, and extremity pain. Muscles have a “memory.” It is common to need more than one treatment, especially if muscle tension has been chronic. The best outcomes come from the combination of trigger point injections, active rehab stretching, and chiropractic adjustments.
Suboccipital nerve block is a small local injection of lidocaine at the base of the head surrounding the occipital nerve. This method will combat the onset of a migraine.
Joint Injections are minimally invasive and ultrasound guided injections into the joint space to reduce pain and treat the underlying problem. We offer a variety of products such as “gel” hyaluronic acid, lidocaine, steroids, platelet rich plasma (PRP) or donated cellular tissue matrix (CTM). Each injection helps to reduce pain by adding fluid inside the joint, providing immediate relief with anti-inflammatories, or by healing the chronic condition with your own blood or donated growth factors which stimulate tissue repair and regrowth.
- Osteoarthritis (knees, shoulders, hips, sacroiliac joint, hands, feet, ankles, elbows)
- Carpal tunnel
- Meniscal tears
Tendon and Ligament Injections are similar to joint injections howeverthe tendon or ligament surrounding a major jointis treated. Injections are also ultrasound guided into the tendon sheath or ligament in order the bathe the area to provide pain relief or regenerative factors.
- Trigger finger
- MCL/LCL of the knee
- Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
- Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis)
PRP platelet rich plasma can be used to naturally heal your joint pain or other conditions by injecting a small about of your own blood plasma into the desired or affected area. This process has so many benefits in accelerating your body’s own healing process and hasrare side effects. The platelet rich plasma is packed with natural lubrication and growth factors allowing for new tissue growth and regeneration within the affected area. This process helps to treat and repair inflammatory conditions without the use ongoing prescription medications, narcotics, and potential surgeries.
CTM cellular tissue matrix is donated tissue, which is packed with growth factors, proteins, natural lubrication, and blood vesselswhich are readily available for injection into the desired or affected area. CTM can be used in place of or in conjunction with PRP to treat and naturally heal ongoing inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions.
