Society for Acupoint Injection Therapy 

SAIT - Society fo Acupoint Injection Therapy

 

There is a serious lack of understanding about connective tissue diorders and pain management.  For that reason The Society for Acupoint Injection Therapy was started to promote and train safe and therapeutic (holistic) injection therapies. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

 

The Society is a non-profit, international, educational centre, offering courses in holistic, integrated medicine and injection therapies for connective tissue disorders.   These practice are evidence based methods that are safe, effective and practised by allopathic and complimentary practitioners.  

 

We bring to our Society recognized specialists and researchers in the field of pain management to train resident medical professionals of all backgrounds in the use of injection therapies to treat connective tissue disorders. 

 

 

 

Myofascial Pain Therapy 

 

Dr. Janet Travell, MD, was a pioneer in the development of myofascial pain therapies.  Dr. Janet Travell was President John F. Kennedy's personal physician and relieved his chronic back pain after five disctomies failed. 

 

Dr. Travell's research demonstrate a myofascial trigger point will produce pain and other symptoms of referred pain in other parts of the body.

Trigger Point Injection Therapy 

 

"Myofascial Trigger Points are among the most common yet poorly recognized and inadequately managed causes of musculosketal pain seen in medical practice."   Dr. Janet Travell M.D.,  John F. Kennedy's personal Physician.

 

 

Prolotherapy 

 

Prolotherapy is a form of injection theapy but in the tendon, ligament attachments of the joint.  Substances utlized are typically procaine and dextrose. 

 

Tendon weakness prepetrates trigger point in the muscle and increase fragility.  Tendons have trigger points as well and typically the two methods are combined for a proper treatment.  Many times the prolotherapy part of a treatment can fail as a result of not identifying the restriction or referred pain pattern of the trigger points.
