What is injection therapy?
Injection therapy is a holistic medical treatment that uses bio-therapeutic solutions injected into acupuncture points, trigger points, and muscles to improve function, reduce pain, combat the signs of aging, enhance the stimulation of acupuncture points, help the effects of acupuncture treatments to last longer and regulate inflammation. Typical solutions injected include homeopathic remedies, sterile saline, vitamins and minerals, procaine, dextrose and D5w.
Injection Therapies We Offer:
Injection therapy includes a wide range of applications. Explore what we do here at Eastern Bench:
- Trigger point injections: Trigger points are commonly associated with musculoskeletal pain, but can also be involved with other conditions, such as headache and TMJ. A tight and inflamed muscle or tendon can produce pain.
- Prolotherapy: A cutting-edge form of regenerative medicine used to treat both acute and chronic injuries, as well as difficult-to-resolve joint pain.
- Acupoint Injections: Injection of sterile substances into acupuncture points. An efficient way to treat pain and offers a stronger stimulation and sometimes immediate relief to the patient. It also enhance the functions of the acupoints and help to make the treatment last longer as the body absorbs the solution.
- Cosmetic: Injection of homeopathic collagen and/or Guna’s MADE into acupuncture points on the face and neck to smoothe out wrinkles.
- Vitamins and minerals: To boost the immune system and deliver nutrients to the body in a faster, more efficient way.
- Frankenhauser: Highly effective treatment for female disorders such as infertility, menstrual pain & irregularities, endometriosis, pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis, migraines and intestinal issues. As well sexual as dysfunction issues in men.

What is regenerative injection therapy (prolotherapy, PRP)?
Regenerative injection therapies are a type of therapy involving the injection of numbing, nutritive, and anti-inflammatory agents into the injured or painful site to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This strengthens the structures to improve function and reduce pain. The types of regenerative injections we offer are prolotherapy and PRP. We will advise you on which one would benefit you the most based on your unique needs.
Is injection therapy painful?
Most patients tolerate the procedure well with just local anesthesia (procaine). The hypodermic needles we use are thinner than a regular hypodermic needle so do not cause the ache associated with a vaccine. Some discomfort may occur with certain types of injections but usually only lasts a day or two and you can feel at ease with the discomfort knowing that this means the healing process is occurring.
When can I go back to my normal daily activities?
In order to maximize the benefit from therapy it is recommended to avoid activity for 2-3 days during the initial healing phase and a gradual return to pre-injection activity level and more depending on your individual progress. Some strenuous activities will need to be stopped or modified for up to two weeks after injections to give the repaired tissue a chance to mature.
Are injection therapies safe? How effective are they?
They are safe when administered by a properly trained and licensed injection therapist. Our doctor (DACM) has hundreds of hours of training in regenerative and holistic injection techniques and takes evey precaution. We will advise you as to your pre and post operation care.
The rate of success depends on multiple factors, including patients underlying medical conditions, ability to heal, age, nutritional status, and personal care following treatment. That is why we have a pre-injection phase of care to optimize your body’s ability to respond to the injection, which acts as the catalyst for healing. We have seen multiple patients be able to avoid surgery, resolve chronic pain and restore function. These therapies do involve active participation in the healing process and are not a magic bullet quick fix.
How are holistic and regenerative injections different from steroid injections?
Steroids, such as cortisone, provide temporary pain relief but inhibit the body’s natural healing mechanism. In the long run, steroids cause tissue degeneration, joint and ligament laxity and multiple other adverse effects. Regenerative and holistic injection therapies do just the opposite- they stimulate healing and tissue repair, promote stability, thereby decreasing pain and have minimal side effects.
How many injections will I need?
This is no universal answer to this question. Much of this depends on the chronicity and location of your problem, if you have any underlying medical conditions, and your age and nutritional status. If you are recieving prolotherapy, most patients require 1 injection per month for three consecutive months.
