Are you experiencing pain that doctors have a hard time finding the cause of? Maybe you’ve been told that you’re suffering from nerve damage, or neuropathy. Nerves are the body’s signaling system, transmitting information from the body to the brain and back again. One of the most important signals they send is pain
– so if your nerves have a problem, they might be expressing that problem by putting you in pain.
You want the pain to stop, and we’re here to help with a specialized treatment: neuro-prolotherapy, also known as perineural injection. This treatment builds on prolotherapy, a type of injection therapy that has been used to treat pain in tendons, ligaments and other connective tissue since the 1940s. By injecting a special mixture of dextrose and other sugars into painful or damaged tissues, doctors create a carefully controlled proliferative inflammation that spurs your body to heal itself.
Dr. Lyftogt from New Zealand, who is a well-known prolotherapist, discovered that injecting dextrose at a much lower concentration around inflamed nerves that cause pain can actually help reduce or eliminate nerve inflammation. He called this procedure neuro-prolotherapy, and later he renamed it perineural injection. Over the past several years, he and other doctors around the word have been performing neuro-prolotherapy and helping to improve this technique. The doctor performing perineural injection needs to have detailed and precise knowledge of nerves and their path, but as long as the doctor knows what he or she is doing, it is undoubtedly one of the most useful tools in fight against pain. It is free of side effects, and the effects are felt almost immediately. How many other medical treatments have such astounding results?
When you think about it, the advantage of neuro-prolotherapy is simple. We stop your pain at its source. Imagine what you can do if you don’t have to deal with the pain every day. We’re here to make that happen for you.
