Joint/Trigger Point Injections

(TPI) may be an option for treating pain in some patients. TPI is a procedure used to treat painful areas of muscle that contain trigger points, or knots of muscle that form when muscles do not relax. At Edge medical we use a very small amount of Lidocaine and combined with natural anti-inflammatories and skilled needle action by our Nurse practioners, pain can be relieved in seconds.

Joint injections can be use to reduce inflammation in a joint or a tendon. They can also be used to reduce friction and compression in a joint. Occasionally corticosteroids may be used to reduce pain for a period of time so that full rehabilitation can be completed. As an alternative to corticosteroid injections, your doctor could recommend hyaluronic acid injections. Hyaluronic acid is a thick substance that lubricates your joints, providing better mobility and decreasing your pain level. These injections also last for months at a time.
