Trigger Point Injections

Trigger point injections are used to treat extremely painful and tender areas of muscles. Normal muscle contracts and relaxes when it is active. A trigger point is a knot or tight band in the muscle that forms when the muscle fails to relax. The knot can often be felt under the skin and may twitch involuntarily when touched. The trigger point can trap or irritate surrounding nerves and cause referred pain – pain felt in another part of the body. Scar tissue and loss of range of motion and weakness may form over time with prolonged active trigger points. A trigger point injection is a solution containing a local anesthetic, normal saline and/or an anti-inflammatory that is injected with a small needle into the trigger point. Trigger point injections have been found to be very effective in relieving pain and may be used in combination with home exercise, heat, cold, and individualized medication program Call our office in Quincy, IL today!

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) uses a patient’s own blood components to stimulate the healing response in damaged tissues. In response to an injury or tissue damage, your body naturally recruits platelets and white blood cells from the blood to initiate a healing response. Under normal conditions, platelets store numerous growth factors which are released in response to signals put out by the injured tissue.
In this treatment, blood is drawn from your arm and placed in a special processing unit, which separates platelets, white blood cells and serum from red blood cells. Those cells are then injected into the joint or tissue under a sterile procedure, stimulating a healing response in a more powerful way. By enhancing the body’s natural healing capacity, the treatment may lead to a more rapid, more efficient, and more thorough restoration of the tissue to a healthy state.

Low Dose Naltrexone

Low-dose naltrexone (LDN) has been demonstrated to reduce symptom severity in conditions such as fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and complex regional pain syndrome. LDN may operate as a novel anti-inflammatory agent in the central nervous system, via action on microglial cells. These effects may be unique to low dosages of naltrexone and appear to be entirely independent from naltrexone’s better-known activity on opioid receptors. As a daily oral therapy, LDN is inexpensive and well-tolerated. LDN may represent one of the first glial cell modulators to be used for the management of chronic pain disorders.


BPC-157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protective compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from the human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments. Also, BPC-157 seems to protect organs and to prevent ulcers of the stomach. This Peptide is also shown to decrease pain in damaged areas. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.
