As part of our integrated practice, AC Spine & Wellness Center offers all-natural trigger point therapy to treat conditions like muscular pain from trigger points, joint stiffness, Sciatica, spasms and inflammation. If you’ve ever suffered from chronic back, neck or joint pain, chances are you’ve heard of or received a cortisone shot (cortico-steroid) but not a natural alternative. Our trigger point injections are an effective and safe alternative to cortisone which promote healing within the soft tissue and provide pain relief.
Why is Natural a Better Option? Our plant-based solution extracted from the Pitcher plant and has no known side effects. It works by blocking pain signals from the nerves of the spine without altering nerve function or motor skill. Like cortisone, this natural formula is recognized by FDA and AMA and also requires a prescription. It has been successfully used for over 50 years as a safe and non-toxic natural treatment.
Cortisone is a man made chemical that has a number of dangerous side effects, such as thinning of the skin, easy bruising, weight gain, swelling, elevation of blood pressure, cataract formation, loss of bone density, and rare but serious damage to the bones of the large joints. Cortisone accumulates in the body, degrades the healthy tissue and makes it weaker in the long run. That’s why most doctors only allow 3 shots per year. Our trigger point injections are a safer, more viable option for stubborn joint conditions, as they support the body’s own natural healing. If you can reduce pain, improve healing of the joint and increase function while getting better long-term results, the choice is simple.
Why aren’t more doctors using these natural trigger point injections? Simply put, it’s not profitable and costs about 1/10 of cortisone. There’s far more profit in injecting Cortisone. A plant-derived equivalent is not a chemical compound, and therefore cannot be patented, so it never gets the funding from “Big Pharma” who pitch their drugs to doctors via a national network of drug representatives.
Bottom line, a natural product is the better choice for trigger point therapy. And because it is a natural solution, it does not cause serious side effects, making it an excellent alternative to cortisone. Our patients are seeing tremendous results with this all natural therapy! Why not you?
