Perineural Injection Therapy course and Ozone Therapy Certification course - Sept 27, 28-29 Comments
TRAINING COURSES IN OZONE THERAPY AND PERIPHERAL NERVE INJECTION THERAPY - WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
Very cool therapies to learn. Ozone is super versatile - if you're doing IVs and/or injections it can be an invaluable adjunct.
"But ozone generators take up space and are pretty expensive ($2000-3000 all in, give or take)", you say. That is true (also true that you can recoup that investment very quickly). But peripheral nerve injection therapy is neither of those things. A bag of dextrose (or a bottle of procaine), a box of syringes and needles...that's it. Cheap, easy...and really gratifying to help patients resolve mild to debilitating pain.
An example: a patient walks in with post-MVA pain that their osteo, massage therapist, DC, physiotherapist, acupuncturist, etc hasn't been able to provide significant relief for. In 5 min your physical exam tells you if peripheral nerve injections are indicated. They book in for a treatment with you (or, if you have time, you treat them on the spot). In 5-15 min you could [commonly] reduce their pain from 25-100% with several superficial, non-invasive, inexpensive injections. Depending on etiology and other factors, anywhere from 1 to 6 booster treatments and they may have long-lasting or permanent results.
Treating pain is one of my favourite things to do in practice because it is such a great feeling to see that look of happiness (and often surprise...and often joyous tears) when the patient realizes that their pain levels are reduced or gone.
