Perineural Injection Technique

Perineural Injection Technique, often referred to as Prolo-PIT (Perineural Injection Treatment), is a relatively new and innovative method in the world of medicine and pain therapy. This technique is used to treat pains and functional problems associated with nerves and their surroundings.


What is Perineural Injection Technique (Prolo-PIT)?


Perineural Injection Technique (Prolo-PIT) is a therapeutic procedure where injections are administered directly around peripheral nerves. The aim of this technique is to alleviate pain and improve the function of nerves and the tissues surrounding them. The term "perineural" comes from the fact that the injections are applied in close proximity to the peripheral nerves.


How is Prolo-PIT Performed?


The Prolo-PIT procedure involves precisely directing the needle towards a specific nerve causing pain or dysfunction. Once the needle is properly positioned, a solution is injected, which may include various components such as anesthetics, corticosteroids, vitamins, amino acids, or other substances selected according to the specific needs of the patient.

Depending on the treatment goal, Prolo-PIT can be applied in various ways for:

1. Alleviating Pain: For patients suffering from chronic pains caused by damage or compression of peripheral nerves, Prolo-PIT can provide relief by reducing inflammation and decreasing stress on the nerves.

2. Tissue Regeneration: Besides pain relief, Prolo-PIT can encourage the regeneration of surrounding tissues. This is particularly useful in sports injuries, degenerative conditions, and connective tissue injuries.

3. Improving Nerve Function: For patients with nerve dysfunction, Prolo-PIT can help in restoring normal function and reducing neurological symptoms.


Benefits and Potential Risks:


The benefits of Prolo-PIT include targeted treatment of the source of pain, quick relief of symptoms, and a minimally invasive approach. However, like any medical procedure, there are certain risks and potential side effects, including infection, bleeding, or allergic reactions to the injection substances. It is important to note that Prolo-PIT should be performed by experienced and trained medical professionals who are familiar with the anatomy and techniques of this procedure to ensure safety and effectiveness. Prolo-PIT is still a relatively new technique, so its effectiveness and safety are continuously being researched. Patients considering this treatment should consult with qualified doctors to get detailed information and an assessment of whether this method is suitable for their needs.

Indications for Prolo-PIT:

Prolo-PIT can be applied in various medical situations, including:

  • Sports injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Neuralgia (nerve pain)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tennis and golfer's elbow
  • Muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries
