Benefits of Neural Therapy
Neural therapy has been used in the treatment of hundreds of conditions including:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Skin diseases
- Chronic bowel problems
- Prostate and bladder problems
- Kidney disease
- Back pain
- Other soft-tissue injuries
Neural therapy addresses these common diagnoses by various methods. These trigger point injections help stabilize the membranes surrounding nerves which are creating an imbalance, and therefore symptoms. Mast cells, which work as part of the immune response and often are responsible for inducing allergy type symptoms, are also stabilized with neural therapy injections.
Neural therapy promotes blood vessel dilation, therefore increasing circulation to bring blood and nutrients to areas in need. It also helps reduce and prevent edema, or swelling. Stimulating blood vessel growth factors and regeneration to promote healing are among the additional benefits of neural therapy injections.
How Neural Therapy Injections Works
‘Interference fields’ are areas of chronic inflammatory material that cannot be removed or metabolized naturally. Interference fields consist of lymphocytes/ plasmocytes infiltration and a disaggregation of the base substance.
For example, scars create aberrant electrical fields which create confusion in the nervous system. Neural therapy works to take the aberrant signals and shut them down so the nervous system can reset itself, allowing the body to return to a state of balance and well-being.
Neural therapy, as suggested by its name, aims to rectify the functioning of the autonomic nervous system of the body.
Neural therapy works by correcting dysfunctions in the autonomic nervous system. Organs, glands, nervous system, and body tissues are able to function better by eliminating disturbances of the body’s electrophysiology (interference fields) with precise trigger point injections. This restoration of function helps eliminate chronic disease conditions. One possible explanation for this improvement is neural therapy increases circulation to injured tissues and organs.
One of the most accepted medical theories of neural therapy is the ground-system theory. The ground-system refers to the extracellular space (the matrix) composed of the fibroblast in interstitial fluids, where there are endings of the autonomic nervous system, ending capillaries of the arterial system, and the beginning capillaries of the venous and lymphatic systems. The proper function of this space is necessary for the health of the cells, organs, systems, and the whole body. Neural therapy aims to regulate the abnormal neuronal information (signals) within the ground-system.
The various techniques utilized in neural therapy include:
- Direct infiltration of scars or affected area
- Autonomic ganglia or plexus blocks
- Cranial nerve blocks
- Peripheral nerve blocks
- Perivascular injections
- Intraspinal injections: epidural, paravertebral, etc.
- Segmental therapy
- Injection into foci
- Injection into affected joints
- Acupuncture point injections
- Ear acupuncture injections
Neural therapy injections involve injecting a small amount of anesthetic into certain biologic points or scars in order to free any energy blocks in the physical body. Very small needles are used to minimize discomfort.
In many ways, it is similar to acupuncture but more powerful. More often than not, response to treatment of an interference field is temporary, sometimes lasting less than a day. However, even a very short response is encouraging and indicates that treatment should be attempted again. Each time an interference field is treated; there should be a longer response. Treatment is repeated until it is no longer required.
