Perineural Injection Therapy (PIT)

 

What is Perineural Injection Therapy:

Perineural Injection Therapy, or Neuroprolo is a drug free, superficial injection technique used to treat chronic neuropathic pain associated with nerve inflammation. The injection utilizes diluted dextrose (D5W) which is injected near sub-cutaneous nerves that chronically send pain signals due to inflammation. Injections follow the nerve pain distribution and the pain relief is almost instantaneous. Treatments vary from 2-8 injections, spaced out by 1-2 weeks apart. Success rate vary from 80-100% in total pain resolution and return to normal activity. Perineural Injection Therapy reduces inflammation surrounding nerve tissue, which allows for normal function and signaling of that nerve branch.
