Perineural Injection Therapy

Perineural Injection therapy is a revolutionary approach to nerve-related pain or dysfunction, using subcutaneous injection of pharmaceutical-grade dextrose to heal injured nerves and restore tissue function safely and effectively.

Perineural Injection Therapy, also known as neural prolotherapy, is an elegant but simple solution in the treatment of pain. It is a revolutionary approach to neuropathic pain and other musculoskeletal conditions refined by John Lyftogt, MD, a physician living in New Zealand. It involves the subcutaneous injection of pharmaceutical-grade dextrose to safely and effectively heal injured nerves and restore tissue function.

Perineural Injections are available at the Neil Riordan Center.

  • Iliotibial band syndrome (ITB) in runners and cyclists
  • Lateral or medial epicondylitis
