The basic trigger point injection (TPI) course is for medical doctors and nurse practitioners who are interested in enhancing their skill set by learning an injection technique for releasing myofascial bands when patients have chronic pain.
You will be provided the necessary information to set up your office with equipment, consent and information forms, intake forms and you will be given homework to practice the injection technique on lemons and tangerines before you start on your patients. This practice gives you an appreciation of fascial tightness that you will find upon injecting your patients. The TPI technique is reviewed, along with five body areas for treatment. A safety video is provided to review the most important risk areas with TPI.
