Perineural Injection Therapy (PIT) - Known As Neural Prolotherapy Or Lyftogt Perineural Injection Treatment For Pain In Brooklyn, NYC

What Is Perineural Injection Therapy (PIT)?

Perineural Injection Therapy (PIT) is also known as Neural Prolotherapy or Lyftogt Perineural Injection Treatment. It’s an advanced regenerative treatment to ease neuropathic pain.

Neuropathic pain is caused by injury and inflammation that damages the function of your nerves. It can happen with:


Sports injuries

injury (1)

Surgical injuries


Chronic disease, like diabetes


Neurologic disease, like multiple sclerosis

PIT uses dextrose injections to enhance your natural healing process and pain suppression mechanisms. The dextrose solution promotes cellular regeneration and interrupts the transmission of pain signals, resulting in effective healing and pain relief.

How Does Perineural Injection Therapy (PIT) Work?

Perineural Injection Therapy aims to treat inflamed cutaneous nerves through a series of injections. Dr. Sardar injects a 5% dextrose solution around the area of the painful nerve. He targets a very specific Valleix point; the point where a superficial nerve passes on a resistant surface, making it prone to compression.


Targeting these exact points will promote biological reactions in and around the nerve to achieve therapeutic effects:

  • Vasodilation: The dextrose solution causes your blood vessels to expand, increasing the blood supply to the injured area. This blood supply is rich in oxygen and nutrients, which boosts natural tissue healing. 
  • Weakens pain receptors: 5% dextrose solution has analgesic effects that weaken your pain receptors and turn off pain signals, eliminating pain.
  • Weakens pain centers: PIT numbs the pain centers in your spine and disrupts the transmission of pain signals to your brain. No pain signals, no pain.
  • Stimulating healing and regeneration: When the dextrose solution comes in contact with your connective tissues and cells, it induces cellular proliferation and regeneration. This prompts tissue formation, resulting in faster healing and recovery.

What Are The Benefits Of Perineural Injection Therapy (PIT)?

Perineural Injections are an entirely non-surgical, drug-free, natural treatment to boost your natural healing mechanism and reduce chronic pain. You can avoid risky surgical procedures or adverse effects from steroid injections and prescription painkillers.

Perineural subcutaneous injections are a reliable therapy to relieve debilitating pain. You can even combine it with conventional treatments and physical therapy to maximize the therapeutic effects and provide effective pain relief.

As such, PIT is quickly gaining popularity among Dr. Sardar’s patients for a few reasons:

Improvement in blood circulation


Blockage of pain sensation from the nerves


Little to no reported adverse effects


Stabilization of joints after achieving improvements in pain levels


Significant reduction in neuropathic pain


Alleviation of musculoskeletal pain

No incisions or scars


No recovery period

How Is Perineural Injection Therapy Performed?

A PIT session takes very little time to perform. Once Dr. Sardar locates and examines the injured cutaneous nerve, he preps your skin with a disinfectant.

He will use a small needle to administer the 5% dextrose solution in between your muscle and the deepest layer of your skin. The injection should elicit quick pain relief in and around your nerve.

You may feel slight discomfort, bruising, and redness in the treated area. This is entirely normal and will resolve in a few days. You may have around 5 to 8 PIT sessions, depending on the extent of your condition and your body’s response to treatment.

Recovery After Perineural Injection Therapy (PIT)

Outcomes of perineural injections differ in individual patients. You may start to feel pain relief a few minutes after your shot. Most times, the relief from the first injection only lasts a short period.

But with consistent PIT sessions, PIT can significantly reduce the intensity of the pain with every injection.

You may experience some mild bruising, redness, and numbness in the area, but these symptoms will subside within a few days. These are natural responses of your body when recovering. You can easily remedy these using an ice pack for a few minutes.

There are no restrictions after a PIT session. You’re free to go back to work or continue your daily routine. However, it’s best to avoid exercises and activities that can stress the newly treated area.
