Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injections are a specific type of local injection that we use to treat local areas of muscle pain or spasm, typically along the muscles of the neck back. Trigger point injections can help break the cycle of pain in your back and neck and help restore muscle function and motion when combined with therapy.
Once the scar tissue (also know as those "knots" you feel in your neck and back) form it will take decreasing inflammation, stretching and strengthening to help heal that muscle. The goal of these injections is to allow the muscle to regain elasticity and become stretchy contracting relaxing fibers as they are meant to be.
These injections are done without the use of steroids or narcotics. A numbing medication, such as lidocaine is injected directly into the trigger points. This medication will decrease inflammation and will allow the muscle to get the therapy that it needs.
There are three different joints that we treat in the office with injections. These include the shoulder joint, sacroiliac joint, and the knee. Similar to trigger point injections, we inject a numbing medication, such as lidocaine directly into the joint space.
These injections are primarily therapeutic injections. They eliminate pain temporarily by filling the joint space with a numbing medication that numbs the joints, the ligaments and joint capsules around the joints. In turn, this allows for increased mobility throughout therapy and chiropractic care.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Knee Joint Therapy
Hyaluronic acid joint fluid therapy is a nonsurgical nonpharmacological therapy for knee osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is determined by physical exams and X-rays. HA therapy can help relieve pain, improve mobility and get you back to your normal activities. HA therapy contains highly purified sodium hyaluronate, also known as hyaluronan. Hyaluronan is a natural substance found in joint cartilage and in the fluid that fills the joints, synovial fluid. This acts like a lubricant and shock absorber in a healthy joint. This injection is given weekly for 3-5 weeks.
