Neural Therapy is used in treating a wide variety of conditions by using injections into nerve sites, scars, muscle trigger points and other tissues to relieve pain and dysfunction throughout the body. The injections often contain homeopathic medicines, local anesthetic such as procaine, or vitamins such as B12. The sites of injection are determined by your history of trauma, location of symptoms, and connected dysfunctional areas. Neural Therapy is based on the theory that trauma can produce long-standing disturbances in the electrochemical function of tissues and cells. Such trauma can cause changes in the involuntary nervous system function leading to altered cell membrane dynamics. Also circulatory, lymphatic and connective tissue disruption can occur.
The injection of the local anaesthetic restores cell membrane function for the duration of the anaesthesia. This short period of time allows the cell to eliminate sufficient amounts of waste material to re-establish normal function. Enhanced microcirculation and lymphatic drainage also takes place as a result of the injection. The anaesthetic is not given for the conventional purpose of freezing or numbing the local region. The addition of vitamins, minerals, or homeopathic remedies to the injection allows an additive therapeutic affect.
Neural therapy techniques involve a multitude of varied types of injections. Some are very shallow, only skin deep and yet others are much deeper.
Tissues that can be affected:
- Clusters of autonomic nerves
- Site of nerve entrapments
- Joint or muscle mechanical dysfunction
- Puncture sites
