What Is Hydrodissection Used For?
Painful shooting sensations in your body often happen from compressed nerves. Also called nerve entrapment, nerve pain can result from injuries, cysts, joint inflammation and repetitive motion. Luckily, hydrodissection is a treatment to help you feel better.
Hydrodissection is a non-surgical procedure to treat chronic nerve pain. Let’s dive into how this minimally-invasive treatment works and what hydrodissection is used for.
How Does Hydrodissection Work?
Hydrodissection’s purpose is to break up scar tissue and inflammation that entraps nerves. This takes the pressure off of your compressed nerves so you ease any suffering and experience relief.
When you go in for the procedure, an ultrasound will be used to identify the scar tissue and inflammation that’s causing your nerves to be entrapped. Guided by this ultrasound, a medication will be injected to free up the inflammation and scar tissue.
At Balance Hormone, our doctors use a mixture of BPC-157 and TB500, which are two different peptides. Peptides are a string of amino acids and a smaller version of proteins. They help soothe inflammation and build muscle.
Since the procedure is minimally invasive, it’s often painless. Sometimes mild discomfort is experienced or a slight burning sensation. Most of the time, you’ll be able to go about your day as normal immediately after the procedure.
What Conditions Does Hydrodissection Help Treat?
Hydrodissection can treat all sorts of nerve pain from a variety of causes, such as:
- Post-surgery: Sometimes after an operation, scar tissue can build up, resulting in stiffness, irritation and chronic pain. This includes joint replacement surgery and rotator cuff surgery.
- Back and shoulder pain: Whether you have an injury or are experiencing trouble sleeping, hydrodissection can be used to treat compressed nerves in your back and shoulders. This can include sciatica and pain from sports injuries.
- Headaches: Pinched nerves in the neck can often cause painful headaches. This nerve pain can also spread to other parts of the body, such as your shoulders.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome: Your carpal tunnel is an inch-wide passageway located on the palm side of your hand. When this tunnel or its surrounding tissue narrows or swells, it puts pressure on a nerve called the median nerve. The pain is often chronic and can travel from your wrist to your arm. Often, repetitive use is the cause of carpal tunnel syndrome, but it can also be hereditary or stem from health conditions.
- Tendonitis: Tendons in your body are pieces of tissue that connect your bones and your muscles. When tendons are injured, inflammation and swelling can happen, which can compress your nerves and cause pain.
