Nerve and Tissue Hydrodissection Services Offered in Buffalo, NY
Hydrodissection describes a process of injecting a solution around a nerve that is entrapped in scarred or restricted layers of tissue or inbetween scarred layers of muscle and fascia. Most common areas of entrapment occur in the region of the lower abdomen and groin, elbow and wrist regions of the arm, and 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 restricts the smooth sliding of one layer past the other or constricts 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 tissue layers are hydrodissected and the nerve is released from the encasing scar tissue.
When the entrapment of the regional nerve is released, circulation and natural healing cycle of the body is restored. When the scarred muscles are separated, a normal glide and slide of one muscle past the other is restored.
The painful region is visualized with ultrasound.
A small needle is expertly inserted into the restricted area and an anti-inflammatory healing solution is injected. The pressure of the fluid is used to hydrodissect scarred area and free up restrictions.
OWM Integrative Wellness’s Dr. Leonard Kaplan is the premier neurological ultrasonographer in Western New York and is one the most experienced peripheral nerve hydrodissection specialists in the country. He has been performing ultrasound guided hydrodissection for nearly 20 years with greater than 90% success rate of relieving neuropathic pain of the trunk and limbs. Hydrodissection solution typically includes a nerve prolotherapy solution of diluted dextrose, tissue repair peptides BPC and TB4, and medical ozone. Placenta Matrix is used for more severe cases.
Painful regions around the abdomen and groin, hips, shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles benefit from hydrodissection.
What to know before you go
Chronic inflammation can cause a loss of glide between layers of muscle and fascia that can restrict movement and cause pain,
Nerve entrapment is often a result of scarring from injury or overuse and is one of the most undiagnosed sources of pain and one of the most easily treated.
Ultrasound examination allows for finding the location of entrapment and precision of treatment. Extent and duration of injury dictates the type of solutions used for repair. Solutions can range from diluted dextrose (neural prolotherapy) to peptide or placenta matrix hydrodissection.
Ultrasound guided approach ensures accurate and safe placement of the needle. We use solutions that are natural and are well tolerated with out incidence of allergic reactions.
