What is subcutaneous perineural therapy?
Subcutaneous perineural therapy is a series of micro-injections targeting the small nerves located in the fascia, a tissue that surrounds muscles. These nerves have been found to cause pain when the surrounding tissues compress the nerve. As the nerve gets further compressed it sends pain signals to the brain. The nerves that cause this type of pain are small, so they are not easily seen with imaging.
They are located in specific areas of the body and are found y palpation. Once identified they are injected with a solution that decreases the sensitivity of these nerves
How long does it take?
Subcutaneous perineural therapy typically requires 25 minutes, including preparation and recovery time.
How often should this procedure be done?
This procedure may be done several times within a several week period. Usually there is profound improvement by the second or third procedure.
What are the expected results?
Subcutaneous perineural therapy is very successful in relieving pain. The benefit from this therapy typically occurs two to seven days following the procedure. This therapy combined with a routine of strengthening and stretching allows many individuals to enjoy a pain free lifestyle.
I thought he was one of the most pleasant doctors I have met in recent years. The receptionist man was very polite. The whole experience was something I did not expect in NYC. I would definitely recommend Dr. Panagos to family and friends.
