Nerve and tissue hydrodissection services offered in Buffalo, NY
Hydrodissection describes a process of injecting a solution around a nerve that is entrapped in layers of tissue. Most common areas of entrapment occur in the region of the lower abdomen and groin, elbow and wrist regions of the arm, knee and ankle regions of the leg. Trauma to a region where the nerve passes through layers of muscle can create inflammation and scar tissue. Scar tissue that develops in the layers of muscle and around the nerve constrict the nerve’s ability to glide through the region. This obstructs normal blood flow and nutrition delivery to the nerve. This process creates pain in the area that typically doesn’t get resolved until the nerve is released from the encasing scar tissue.
