ACHIEVE YOUR OPTIMAL HEALTH!

Trigger Point Injections.

These injections take only a few minutes to complete. They treat muscle spasm and knots by reducing the inflammation and pain of the small tender knots in your muscles and facia.

The actual injection will feel like a pinch and will only take a few minutes. Post injection pain, while uncommon, can occur. It typically resolves itself within a few days. Once the inflammation is reduced, massage therapy and physiotherapy techniques help to eliminate the pain and rehabilitate the muscle fibers.

Radio Frequency Ablation

Is a minimally invasive procedure that blocks the nerve fibers carrying pain signals to the brain. It can provide lasting relief for people with chronic pain, especially in the lower back, neck and arthritic joints.

If you suffer recurrent pain and you’ve experienced good relief with a nerve block injection, you may be a candidate for a radiofrequency ablation.
