Natural triggerpoint injections are a great alternative to Cortisone injections. Cortisone is a harsh stimulant to the body and can have side effects that you need to be aware of before getting cortisone injections. These natural triggerpoint injections are a good alternative to try if you think cortisone injections may help. These injections have natural anti-inflammatory and natural tissue relaxant properties in them to help in tissue repair. These substances are used in the treatment of pain, swelling and inflammation, among other problems. Most injections cause only minor discomfort because they are very shallow, given just under the skin or into the muscle.
WHAT KINDS OF PRODUCTS ARE INJECTED?
Products commonly used in the treatment are homeopathic botanicals, for example arnica, echinacea, and chamomile. Arnica is used for muscle pain and Echinacea is used to boost your body’s immune system. Dr. Davis uses a mixture of these natural products.
Traumeel® is used for inflammation in the treatment of sports injuries.
Zeel® is used for chronic joint pain such as arthritis pain.
Spascupreel® is used for muscle spasms/cramps.
Lymphomyosot® is utilized for chronically swollen or congested tissues.

This therapy has shown to be a very safe and effective natural alternative to steroid and other pharmaceutical injections. Dr. Troy Davis has helped his patients with the effects of these injections for over a decade. Recent research on Biopuncture has revealed new insights into the mechanism of how these products work. In June 2004, in the medical journal, Clinical and Developmental Immunology – a peer-reviewed, conventional medical journal – researchers showed that Traumeel inhibited IL-1ß and TNF-alpha secretion. Both of these immune mediators are associated with increased inflammation and tissue damage. Traumeel has also been shown to shorten recovery time for acute sports injuries. (Orizola A et al. 2007).
