Perineural Injection Therapy (PIT)
Relieving the pain “highway”
What is Perineural Injection Therapy?Perineural Injection Therapy (PIT) treats inflamed nerves with small injections of a ph-balanced dextrose solution that calms nerves and promotes healing. It’s designed to combat pain and inflammation in the small nerves close to the surface of the skin. The injections are given at multiple sites along the path of tender nerves, typically where patients are experiencing pain.
