Types of injections we use for nonsurgical pain relief

Persistent pain can disrupt your life. Lingering pain can turn everyday tasks into tiring and frustrating activities. Fortunately, there are options to help ease your pain and heal the damage.

Injections are a safe and reliable way to relieve pain in muscles and joints without surgery or an invasive procedure. We offer human cell, trigger point, SPG blocks, PRP, epidural steroid, lidocaine, hyaluronic acid, and joint injections. Whatever type we determine is right for you, it will provide a nonaddictive way to alleviate your pain.

Human cell injections

Human cell injections are an experimental and elective service that we offer. Human cells may aid in the repair and regeneration of damaged tissues. The main function of human cell injections is to coat, cover, and protect the damaged area, allowing it to heal. 

Steroid injections

Injected steroids like cortisone, are the most common nonsurgical pain relief in the back, neck, shoulders, arms, or legs. They are minimally invasive with few side effects beyond soreness. Steroid injections are delivered directly to the affected area. In addition to pain, steroid injections can help alleviate other problems, including poison ivy, sinus issues, and inflammatory conditions. 

Lidocaine injections

Lidocaine is an anesthetic used for nonsurgical pain relief injections. It numbs the tissues around the injection site to help you feel instant relief. 


SPG block for headaches and migraines

One of the ways we can treat head pain is with an anesthetic applied to the sphenopalatine ganglion, which we call SPG. This is a group of nerves behind the nose and can cause head pain. There are a couple of ways we can apply the anesthetic that will ease your discomfort. We will discuss the options with you during your consultation.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections

PRP injections use your body’s platelets to quicken the process of healing injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. PRP injections provide a concentration of your own growth factors into the damaged tissue. These growth factors help your body heal itself.

PRP therapy can treat the following conditions:

  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Tennis elbow
  • Shoulder tendinitis
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Joint arthritis
  • Hip, spine, knee, ankle, SI joint, elbow, and wrist injuries
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sacroiliac joint pain
  • Ankle sprains
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Muscle tears 


Trigger point injections

Painful knots in your muscles are known as trigger points. They are created when muscles become stressed and can't relax. We use trigger point injections to help soothe muscle pain in your arms, legs, lower back, and neck. 

Trigger point injections can treat conditions like fibromyalgia, tension headaches, and myofascial pain. We inject a combination of steroids and anesthetic directly into the affected area to reduce your pain. 

Muscle and joint injections

We can inject a pain-relieving and healing solution into your joints and muscles to alleviate musculoskeletal pain in ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues. We can also inject your painful muscles to help speed up healing.
