Neural therapy is based on the theory that trauma can produce long-standing disturbances in the electrochemical function of tissues. It is an injection therapy that has been in practice in Europe since the 1940′s. Injection of a local anaesthetic into areas of dysfunctional nerve conduction has been shown to be very effective in treating many conditions, including neck and back pain, whiplash, chronic pain, headaches, migraines, jaw pain, post-surgical pain, scar tissue, athletic injuries, digestive disturbances, PMS associated pain, sinusitis, hypothyroid, organ dysfunction and disturbances due to scar formation.
The disruption of signalling throughout the body can create many seemingly non-related issues or pain syndromes that appear untraceable. Neural therapy involves the injection of a local anaesthetic into traumatized tissue (usually scars, acupuncture points, nerves, ganglia (groups of nerves), or trigger points) to remove any disruption to the body’s electrochemical communication and signalling system. Anaesthetic appears to act as a circuit breaker which removes blocks to normal nerve impulses.
