Trigger Point Injections - North Tampa, Florida

The ALCAT food sensitivity test is a minimally invasive blood test that accurately and reproducibly measures biological cellular reactivity in whole blood. Unlike standard IgG tests, which rely exclusively on one immune pathway and merely detects exposure, the ALCAT test is the premier test for detecting food, mold and chemical sensitivities/intolerances. Studies show the ALCAT test to be 83.4% accurate with foods and 96% accurate with food additives, as compared with the Gold Standard - a double blind oral challenge.trigger point injections north tampa

How Trigger Point Injections Works

Trigger Points are the tight bands of muscles that may be felt as a knot.  Trigger points can restrict movement and cause muscle weakness and may cause referred and/or radiating pain.

Our patients get excellent results with our Trigger Point Injection Treatments.  Trigger Point Therapy takes just a few minutes, and is performed by our Medical Doctor.

We can do trigger point injections, usually using a cocktail of lidocain and dexamethasone, we have used Serapin and like it for occipital trigger areas, but prefer the dexamethasone for trapezius and rhomboid areas.

One of the medicines we use in Trigger Point Therapy is a plant based, non-toxic, biological anti-inflammatory medicine called SARAPIN.  SARAPIN is an alternative to corticosteroids and cortisone injections, in that it does not damage or weaken cartilage, bones or tendons.

Patients receiving this therapy are amazed at the results.  If you suffer with Trigger Points, call us today at 813-978-0020 to see if you are a candidate for this treatment.
