INJECTIONS

When our patients need to feel better quickly the medical staff at Essential Integrative Medicine utilizes highly skilled injection techniques. We emphasize comfort and relaxation to make you feel at ease. Our clinic is dedicated to keeping you healthy for the long run, which is why we choose to use an all natural compound called Sarapin instead of corticoid steroid injections. Steroid injections can further damage tissue over time and there is a limit to how many injections a patient can get annually. Sarapin has no side effects and provides great relief when you need it most!

   

 Program Highlights:

  • We use a numbing spray which makes for almost painless injections
  • We use an all natural anti-inflammatory called Sarapin
  • The therapeutic injection may provide relief within minutes
  • Most patients under go therapeutic injection treatment 1 - 2 times a week
  • Your insurance may cover these injections

Trigger Point Injections

 

 A trigger point can be so persistent and painful that it affects our daily lives. Sometimes  manual therapies performed by a licensed massage therapist may not be enough, a trigger point injection might be necessary. Our goal is to alleviate the pain and eliminate a persistent trigger point. 


A trigger point injection involves injecting the trigger point with a solution of lidocaine and Sarapin. Sarapin is naturally derived from the Pitcher plant that has pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. Sarapin has no known side effects. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that numbs and also relieves pain to the area.

At Essential Integrative Medicine, our patients are often seen by our massage therapists following the injection. The massage therapist will work the tissue further and increase its effectiveness. as an added benefit for you, our patient.

Joint Injection

Certain lifestyle factors can contribute to chronic joint pain. Some of these factors could be repetitive stress, injury, trauma, work conditions, age, posture, altered biomechanics, activity level, etc. The pain can be so significant that it interferes with our daily lives while at work and leisure. The joints most commonly affected are the knees, shoulders and low back. The effects could be degeneration (arthritis), inflammation and pain. Joint injections could help alleviate these conditions. We use joint injections to get inside the joint and reduce the inflammation which may help reduce or relieve pain.
