Perineural Injection Treatment (PIT) for Chronic Nerve Pain
PIT is an exciting new treatment for nerve pain caused by inflammation after injury or overuse. A series of VERY small injections along nerve pathways are given just under the skin. Most patients require 4-6 PIT sessions. Well over 85% of patients respond to this treatment. Dr. Klein trained with the founder of PIT, Dr. John Lyftogt (“lift-off”).

He will then discuss his recommendations with you. Dr. Klein utilizes a holistic approach – his evaluation involves the whole person, not just the body part involved. All patients are evaluated and treated by Dr. Klein.
