Trigger Point Injection Therapy in Woodridge, IL
Trigger points are pressure points that have developed within the 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.
Advanced Wellness Center specializes in treating this condition with trigger point injection therapy:
These injections are always performed by our medical doctor or nurse practitioner, and a benefit of this treatment is that it only takes just a few minutes. The medication used in trigger point therapy is called SARAPIN. This anti-inflammatory is plant based and non-toxic. SARAPIN is a wonderful option as compared to similar treatments. Corticosteroids, for example, can produce harmful side effects such as damage or weakening of tendons, cartilages or bones.
Our patients who are receiving SARAPIN injections are thrilled with the results they achieve. If you or someone you know suffer from trigger points or painful knots, don’t hesitate and give us a call to see if you would be a candidate for trigger point injection therapy.
