Trigger point injection therapy to treat peripheral neuropathy
Trigger points are pressure points that have developed within a muscle. They are bands of muscles that have become too tight and may be felt as a painful area within the muscle of the body or the spine. When most people talk about having a “knot” in their neck or back, this is what they are referring to. Trigger points or knots, can result in pain in the direct area, referred pain, muscle weakness and restricted movement and flexibility of the spine.
Trinity Integrated Medical specializes in treating back pain, neck pain and neuropathy with trigger point injection therapy:
These injections are always performed by our medical doctor or physician assistant. A benefit of this treatment is that it only takes a few minutes. The medication used in trigger point therapy is called Traumeel. This anti-inflammatory is plant-based and non-toxic. Traumeel is a wonderful option compared to similar treatments. Corticosteroids, for example, can produce harmful side effects such as damage or weakening of tendons, cartilage or bones.
Our patients who are receiving Traumeel injections are thrilled with the results they achieve. If you or someone you know suffer from trigger points or painful knots, give us a call to see if you would be a candidate for trigger point injection therapy.
