SARAPIN for joint or muscle pain:
Sarapin is an agent that is used for injections into the muscles and joints of your body. Sarapin is used mainly for trigger point injections, but it can also be used for joint injections.
What is Sarapin?
Sarapin is a biological medicine which means it is derived from a naturally occurring organism called the pitcher plant.
How does it work?
Sarapin has been used for more than fifty years in treating the scope of pain arising from muscular or neuralgic origin. It does not affect any other nerve functions or motor functions and is not affected by heat or cold. Its action on the C fibers and its complete lack of effect on motor nerves make Sarapin superior to such anesthetics as procaine which act merely by anesthetizing the entire nerve and surrounding tissue.
Furthermore, there is no tissue destruction, there are no systemic reactions, and a lasting effect is obtained. (1)
What is it used for?
It is used for Trigger point injections. The Sarapin helps to break up the trigger point through a mechanical breakdown of scar tissue. Sarapin also provides all-natural pain relief for the patient in joints as well as muscles.
How is it used?
In our office we use Sarapin and inject into the muscles and joints. For accuracy we guide via ultrasound.
