Perineural Injection Therapy

Perineural injection therapy is a 5% dextrose (glucose) solution that is injected near superficial nerves to safely and effectively treat acute and chronic pain. Perineural injection therapy treats inflamed and injured nerves.

Neural Therapy

Neural Therapy is a healing method that has been used in Germany since the early 1900's. Neural therapy involves the injection of a local anesthetic such as procaine into scars, trigger points, acupuncture points, tendon and ligament insertions peripheral nerves and other tissues to treat chronic pain and illness.

Trigger Point Injections

Trigger points are tender points in muscle that result in pain when pressure is applied to them. This pain can also radiate to other areas in the body. We commonly refer to them as a “knot” in your muscle. Trigger point injections is a pain management technique that involves the injection of anesthetics into the trigger point to relax the muscle and relieve pain.

FAQ for Regenerative Injection Therapy in Vancouver WA

How does Perineural Injection Therapy work?

A nerve cell, like other cells in the body, needs several nutrients to keep it healthy, including glucose.  When a nerve is injured, inflamed and lacks glucose, it sends continuous signals that the body interprets as pain.  The injured nerves release a series of substances that can inhibit the healing of affected muscles, tendons, and ligaments, leading to chronic inflammation, sensitivity, and pain.

Dextrose is a naturally occurring carbohydrate utilized by the body for energy. Dextrose enters the nerve cell receptor and restores the cell to its normal function. This process leads to the decrease and eventual elimination of pain. The fluid in the injection helps to hydrate connective tissue and break apart fascial adhesions. Dehydrated tissue can exacerbate nerve pain by pressing tightly on the nerve passing through it.

How does Neural Therapy work?

Neural Therapy treats dysfunctions of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The autonomic nervous system is connected to every cell in the body and controls autonomic functions of our body such as breathing, digestion, immune function, hormone production and circulation.

Scar tissue, injury, disease, and stress disrupt the ANS and create disturbances in the function of cells called interference fields. Cells in these interference fields have an abnormal electrical charge. Injection of a local anesthetic is thought to help re-establish the resting potential of the cells. This improves cellular function, restores the cells' ability to heal, and reduces pain.

It can be thought of as a reset button that helps restore the healing capacity of damaged cells.

How do Trigger Point Injections Work?

Injecting anesthetics into a trigger point helps eliminate the pain and inflammation which ultimately allows the muscle/tissue to return to its normal relaxed state.

You may develop some bruising at the injection site. You will experience numbness at the injection site for 20-30 minutes.

You may have an emotional release during or after the treatment. It is common to feel fatigued following the treatment until the next day.

Neural therapy is contraindicated in patients with allergies to procaine. Procaine is a common anesthetic used in dental offices so most people are aware of any allergies. For this reason, during your first session, we will only use a small amount of procaine and keep you at the office for the next 20 minutes to make sure you tolerate it.
