Coreflex Injections

Coreflex Injections

Coreflex injections are a form of minimally invasive treatment used to treat a wide variety of common pain conditions.

They contain a combination of local anaesthetic, anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxants, administered directly into or around the affected area to provide targeted pain relief and reduce inflammation.

They target the tendon or muscular area of the painful area and/ the affected joints to stop muscle spasms and inflammation and improve healing.

Who can benefit from Coreflex Injections?

Coreflex injections are beneficial for individuals experiencing chronic pain, particularly in cases where conventional pain management methods have proved insufficient.

Individuals experiencing intense muscle pain in localised areas or discomfort in the neck, shoulder, back, knee, and other joints, and patients with tension headaches, can obtain relief through Coreflex injections.

What To Expect During The Treatment?

The treatment involves inserting a tiny needle at the pain trigger areas (and/ or the referred points away from the pain) to deliver prescribed medication. This injection effectively deactivates the active trigger point, bringing relief from pain. Typically, a brief course of treatments yields sustained pain relief.

These injections can be administered in the doctor’s clinic at the bedside, and the procedure is usually quick, lasting just a few minutes.
