Joint Injections

Advantage Healthcare of Charleston embraces an integrated approach to healthcare in order to help patients achieve optimum wellness and feel good from the inside out. Treatment plans utilize techniques that include chiropractic care, massage therapy, and Physical Rehabilitation, and may also include trigger point therapy for chronic pain management.

Extremely sensitive spots in tight bands of muscles, trigger points are often felt as knots. In addition to restricting movement and causing muscle weakness and referred or radiating pain, they can manifest as a variety of ailments, including tension headaches, tinnitus, temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ), and low back pain, and can also accompany chronic musculoskeletal disorders. Fortunately, trigger point injections can alleviate the symptoms caused by trigger points.
  At Advantage Healthcare of Charleston, our medical professionals perform a thorough examination and diagnostic assessment in order to determine the source of the problem.  Once the root cause is determined, a customized treatment plan can be successfully designed to address the patient’s medical concerns using holistic healing to promote wellness. Trigger point therapy can be extremely effective, particularly when used in conjunction with Physical Rehabilitation, nutritional counseling, and exercise.  Though our trigger point injections consist of all-natural substances, trigger point injections can also use more traditional medicine, including lidocaine, steroids, or anti-inflammatory medications.
