Physical Medicine Center Serving Tampa, Florida - Trigger Point Injections
How Trigger Point Injections Works.
Trigger Points are the tight bands of muscles that may be felt as a knot. Trigger points can restrict movement and cause muscle weakness and may cause referred and/or radiating pain.
Our patients get excellent results with our Trigger Point Injection Treatments. Trigger Point Therapy takes just a few minutes, and is performed by our Medical Doctor.
We can do trigger point injections, usually using a cocktail of lidocain and dexamethasone, we have used Serapin and like it for occipital trigger areas, but prefer the dexamethasone for trapezius and rhomboid areas.
One of the medicines we use in Trigger Point Therapy is a plant based, non-toxic, biological anti-inflammatory medicine called SARAPIN. SARAPIN is an alternative to corticosteroids and cortisone injections, in that it does not damage or weaken cartilage, bones or tendons.
Patients receiving this therapy are amazed at the results. If you suffer with Trigger Points, call us today at 813-328-6917 to see if you are a candidate for this treatment.
