What is Neural Therapy?

Neural Therapy is a treatment for chronic pain and illness. It involves the injection of local anesthetics into autonomic ganglia, peripheral nerves, scars, glands, trigger points, and other tissues. Neural Therapy is based on the theory that trauma can produce long-standing disturbances in the bio-electro-chemical function of tissues. These electrical disturbances, called "interference fields," are manifestations of cell membrane instability and typically trigger abnormal autonomic nervous system responses. The body sometimes reacts in inappropriate ways, resulting in altered nervous system responses, chronic pain and/or dysfunction. Interference fields may be found in scars, teeth, internal organs or other locations where local tissue irritation exists. For example, an old appendix scar may cause migraine headaches, or a wisdom tooth extraction scar may cause chronic low back pain.

Think of your body as a computer Your skin has nerves that act like little micro-circuits sending signals to and from, just like a satellite. If there is a break in the skin such as a scar which is the result of dead tissue that is no longer innervated or has sufficient blood flow, then, the messages no longer are transmitted properly and this creates dysfunction. This is also the entire concept of Chinese acupuncture, and its associated meridians throughout our body.

This injection therapy has been practiced in Europe since the 1940’s and focuses on treating autonomic nervous system dysfunction by regulating the ability of the nervous system to flow between the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches without interference.

Have you ever felt like you are continuously on the go without the ability to calm down and relax?
If so, chances are that there is an interference of your autonomic nervous system.

Neural therapy is a remarkably safe medical treatment and has demonstrated effective outcomes in treating a variety of conditions, including neck injuries, back pain, whiplash, chronic pain, TMJ,  headaches, migraines, post-surgical pain, athletic injuries, digestive disturbances and sinusitis.

The therapy usually requires about three to six sessions to determine what benefit neural therapy will have for you. Often the symptoms improve but then return a few days later. As the frequency of treatments increases, so does the improvement of the condition.
