Herbal Trigger Point Injection Therapy
Trigger Points are small knots or areas of spasm within a muscle that shorten and contract the muscle, causing pain and discomfort. Common causes include: Car accidents, sports injuries, spinal misalignments (subluxations) and muscle tightness from repetitive motion, bad posture and stress.
The herbal ingredient of the injection is Sarapin, an all-natural biological analgesic medicine derived from the pitcher plant. It works by stopping pain signals in the nerves, increasing circulation and decreasing inflammation. It does not contain narcotics or steroids.
Results are often immediate. Trigger Point Injections are administered once weekly, and on average, the course of therapy ranges from 4-6 weeks. Sarapin builds up in the system over time to gradually shrink and eventually eliminate trigger points. Trigger Point Injections are safe and are covered by many major insurance policies.
