Muscle Relaxant Injection Therapy (MRIT)

Muscle Relaxant Injection Caulfield North

The use of Botulinum injections into tight sore muscles has been common for many years. In more recent times the use has gained more recognition as an effective way to reduce the painful muscle’s ability to contract as forcefully. This works by the botulinum acting on the ‘neuro-muscular junction’ as it interferes with the transmission of the signal from the nerve to the muscle fibers. The result is that part of the muscle becomes incapable of contracting for a period of up to 3 months until the effect wears off.

Given the precise nature of exactly where and how much to inject the muscle, clinical experience is vital. Our team GP Dr Braham Goldberg has over 25 years of experience in this field and works closely with our team of Physios, Osteo, and Dentists. Dr Goldberg advocates that in addition to MRIT to the painful, overactive muscle, the underlying cause and other structures – like joints and ligaments, need to be addressed. For this reason, he favors our multidisciplinary approach.

MRIT can be helpful for:
  • Headaches and migraine
  • Acute pain
  • Bruxism (overactivity from clenching and grinding of the teeth)
  • Other chronic muscle pain and muscle overactivity from prolonged use.
