Trigger Point Therapy Pain Relief With Traumeel
Trigger points are essentially areas of pressure that have developed in the muscle. Trigger points occur when bands of muscle experience excess tension, causing pain in a particular muscle or in the spine. This is often referred to as a “knot” in the back, neck, or a specific muscle. These knots can cause numerous problems including:
pain in the immediate area,
referred pain that is felt in other areas,
restricted movements, an
reduced spinal flexibility.
TRIGGER POINT INJECTION THERAPY WITH TRAUMEEL
At Rockport Physical Medicine, we offer treatment of trigger points with Trigger Point Injection Therapy. Always performed by a trained medical professional, the injections take just a few minutes. The medication used for the injections is a plant-based substance known as Traumeel. Traumeel is a natural blend of botanical and mineral extracts with the potential ability to neutralize this inflammation, allowing your body to heal properly. Traumeel injections are natural, extremely safe, and produce little to no side effects. In fact, athletes of all levels have treated their injuries with Traumeel only, commonly avoiding steroids, anti-inflammatory medications and narcotics. Because this medicine is a naturally-derived compound, it has many advantages over the more traditional corticosteroids which are used by many other practices. Those corticosteroids often produce numerous harmful side effects including damaging an weakening of your tendons, cartilage or bones.
Our patients who are receiving Traumeel injections are thrilled with the results they are having.
