Steroid Injections for Initial Relief
Steroid Injections for Initial Relief

Steroid Injections for Initial Relief

Our program often starts with steroid injections to target inflammation around your joints. These injections are used to quickly reduce pain and inflammation due to trauma or injury. They can help you get back to your daily activities, work, sports, or physical therapy sessions sooner.

Important to Know:While these injections have their place in treatment plans, long term use of repeat steroid injections is not recommended due to side effects. This type of injection may be recommended as an initial step in your treamtent plan or may be required by insurance carriers prior to trying other injection therapy. Your provider will discuss your options to determine the best course of care for you.

Target Tight Muscles and Find Relief: Trigger Point Injections

Target Tight Muscles and Find Relief: Trigger Point Injections

Chronic pain originating from tight, knotted muscles can significantly impact your daily life. Here at Synergy Health, we offer trigger point injections, a targeted approach to address the source of your pain.

What are Trigger Points?

Myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) are essentially tight knots that develop in muscles. These knots can cause pain not only in the localized area but also refer to pain in other parts of your body, like arms or legs. MTrPs are often found in the neck and upper back area and are a common cause of headaches.

How Can Trigger Point Injections Help?

Trigger point injections offer several benefits:

  • Targeted Pain Relief: The injections directly address the trigger point, aiming to reduce its size and alleviate pain.
  • Improved Range of Motion: By addressing the tightness, trigger point injections can help improve your flexibility and movement.
  • Faster Relief: Many patients experience a significant reduction in pain within just 1-2 sessions.

What to Expect During Treatment

The needle insertion itself triggers a response in your nerves, promoting the release of endorphins (your body’s natural pain relievers) and increased blood flow to the area. This helps relax and heal the muscle. Some patients may experience a brief “twitch” response when the needle reaches the trigger point. This is a positive sign, indicating the muscle is responding favorably to the treatment.

Optimizing Your Results

This steroid free injection is recommended at a frequency of 1x a week for 3-4 weeks to help reduce the size and tension in the muscle. Lidocaine is used to reduce the soreness associated with the injection, but the needle is the most effective part of this injection

Harnessing Your Body’s Healing Power: PRP Treatments for Long-Term Relief

Harnessing Your Body’s Healing Power: PRP Treatments for Long-Term Relief

For more advanced, long-term relief, PRP therapy might be the answer. This innovative treatment utilizes your body’s natural healing abilities to provide long-lasting relief. It’s like jumpstarting your body’s own repair system to target the source of your pain and promote regeneration.

Here’s the science behind it:

PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. Platelets are a component of your blood, rich in growth factors, that play a crucial role in healing and tissue regeneration. During PRP therapy, we concentrate these platelets in a sample of your own blood.

The PRP Process: A Closer Look:

  • Blood Draw: We draw a small amount of blood from your arm, similar to a routine blood test.
  • Centrifugation: The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge, a machine that spins rapidly to separate the platelets from other blood components like red blood cells and plasma (the liquid portion of blood).
  • Platelet Concentration: Through centrifugation, we obtain a concentration of platelets in a smaller volume of plasma, creating a PRP solution.
  • Injection: The concentrated PRP is then precisely injected directly into the injured joint using ultrasound guidance for optimal placement.

    The Benefits of PRP for Joint Pain:

    • Promotes Healing: PRP injections deliver a concentrated dose of growth factors to the injured area, stimulating the body’s natural healing processes to repair damaged tissues.
    • Reduces Pain and Inflammation: Growth factors in PRP also help reduce inflammation, a key contributor to joint pain.
    • Long-Term Relief: Studies suggest that PRP therapy can offer long-lasting pain relief, potentially reducing the need for pain medications or other interventions.
    • Minimally invasive: Compared to traditional surgery, PRP is a minimally invasive procedure with a shorter recovery time.

    Physical Therapy: Strengthening Your Recovery

    Our physical therapy program is designed to work in conjunction with other treatments, creating a personalized path to recovery. It offers a range of benefits, including increased flexibility and strength. This helps reduce pain and improve your joint’s ability to move freely.

    • Customized Exercises and Stretches: These target specific muscle groups and joints to alleviate discomfort and improve function.
    • Physical Therapy With Injection Treatment: Physical therapy can enhance the effectiveness of injections. By addressing underlying muscular imbalances, it strengthens the pain reduction benefits and promotes long-term mobility.
    • Laser Therapy: Physical therapy and laser therapy work together to enhance the body’s natural healing processes, reducing pain and inflammation more effectively. This combination accelerates recovery times, improves mobility, and provides immediate pain relief, allowing for more effective physical therapy sessions. Both therapies are non-invasive, offering a safer alternative to surgery or long-term medication use.
    • Massage: Physical therapy and massage therapy complement each other by reducing pain and inflammation, improving circulation, and enhancing muscle flexibility. This combination accelerates recovery times, promotes relaxation, and allows for more effective physical therapy sessions. Both therapies are non-invasive, providing a holistic approach to healing and well-being.
    • Chiropractic Treatment: Physical therapy and chiropractic treatment work together to improve spinal alignment, reduce pain, and enhance overall mobility. Chiropractic adjustments can quickly relieve discomfort, making physical therapy exercises more effective. This combination offers a comprehensive approach to musculoskeletal health, accelerating recovery and promoting long-term well-being.

    This comprehensive approach tackles the root causes of joint pain, allowing you to regain mobility and enjoy a more active lifestyle.

    Regenerative Medicine with Wharton’s Jelly for Enhanced Relief

    For patients seeking a powerful approach to chronic joint pain, we offer regenerative medicine with Wharton’s Jelly. This innovative treatment harnesses the body’s natural healing properties to promote significant pain relief and functional improvement.

    What is Wharton’s Jelly?

    Wharton’s Jelly is a gelatinous substance found in the umbilical cord. Rich in growth factors and other reparative elements, it holds immense potential for tissue regeneration.

    How Does Regenerative Medicine Work?

    Regenerative medicine with Wharton’s Jelly functions by injecting a precisely formulated solution directly into the injured joint. This solution contains a powerful trifecta of healing elements, strategically combined to address various aspects of joint pain:

    • Growth Factors: These biological messengers act as signals, stimulating the growth and repair of damaged tissues like cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. By jumpstarting the body’s own healing processes, growth factors encourage regeneration within the joint.
    • Collagen: As the primary structural protein in joints, collagen provides strength and stability. The inclusion of collagen in the regenerative medicine solution helps support the joint’s structure and enhance its overall function.
    Regenerative Medicine with Wharton's Jelly for Enhanced Relief

    By combining these elements along with hyaluronic acid, a lubricant that allows joints to move smoothly and painlessly, regenerative medicine aims to tackle joint pain at its source. It addresses inflammation, a key contributor to pain, while simultaneously stimulating tissue repair and enhancing lubrication. This multifaceted approach can lead to significant pain reduction, improved joint function, and potentially long-term benefits.
