What are Perineural Injection Treatments?

Perineural Injection Treatments involve a series of small injections administered under the skin, targeting sensitive nerves in painful areas. These injections utilize a buffered D5W solution (dextrose 5% in sterile water) with a neutral pH of 7.4 to effectively inhibit chronic neuropathic pain.

How long does the pain relief last after a treatment?

After the initial treatment, patients can experience pain relief for a period ranging from four hours to four days. However, with repeated treatments (between 3-8 sessions that are 1-2 weeks apart), patients experience a gradual reduction in pain. The average success rate is greater than 80%.

Is the treatment safe?

Yes, the treatment is extremely safe. D5W, the solution used, is commonly employed as an intravenous solution in hospitals worldwide. Since the injections are mostly subcutaneous and utilize only a half-inch needle, the risk of harm is minimized.

Can Perineural Injection Treatments be used for all types of pain?

Perineural Injection Treatments can effectively address various pain conditions, including joint pain, back pain, and chronic neuropathic pain. Consultation with a healthcare professional at MIPA will help determine if this treatment is suitable for your specific pain condition.

Will I be able to return to full function after the treatments?

With the gradual reduction of pain as the ultimate goal, patients can expect a significant improvement in their ability to perform daily activities without discomfort.
