What kinds of Injection therapy are available for chronic joint and nerve pain?
Joint pain of the neck, back, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles, and feet can be treated with injections of ozone and vitamins. No injections go into the spine or the spinal discs.
Chronic pain persists because of inflamed nerves and this can be treated with perineural injection treatment. Perineural injections are placed 1/4 “ under the skin surface using a 5% dextrose (sugar) solution to inject the sensory nerves. It is completely safe and non-toxic. It is not the same as “prolotherapy” which involves deep injections into the ligaments using a sugar solution.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a non-toxic injection therapy. Platelets are extracted from a small amount of the patient’s blood and are injected into chronically painful joints. The platelets are rich in cellular repair factors and tissue growth factors.
Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block, a safe and simple intranasal treatment for chronic headaches and for calming the nervous system. Administered by nasal catheter, no needles are used.
