Don’t underestimate the healing power of the needle! Under the skilled hands of our doctors and practitioners, these needles can be used at the exact site of pain to break up bound tissue. Injections include: lidocaine, marcaine and cortisone.
Lidocaine and Marcaine are short acting numbing solutions; combined with cortisone – which decreases inflammation, this powerful treatment can be used to stop intense, limiting pain. The needling technique multiplies this effect, helping patients regain mobility and function.
This treatment has a wide array of applications. If you are experiencing limiting pain that feels really sharp and localized in one or a few areas, you likely have trigger points. These are really common in the neck and back area and can flare up on occasion, causing issues with mobility and hindering sleep and overall function. We love how these injections can have an immediate effect on patients so they can sleep, work and play as soon as possible.
Though trigger point injections have a wide range of use, it is an excellent treatment when pain is sharp and localized. It can be incredibly successful in calming a knotty muscle during a flare up.
