Neural Therapy

Neural Therapy is a gentle healing technique developed in Germany which involves the injection of local anesthetics into peripheral nerves, scars, acupuncture points and/or trigger points. Wildwood Integrative Healthcare recommends Neural Therapy to treat chronic pain in the low back or neck, diffuse pain in the abdomen or pelvic floor and joint pain. Our practitioners have seen excellent results resolving chronic pain from both injury or surgery.

During a neural therapy treatment, an injection of local anesthetic (procaine) is made just under the skin with a very fine needle. The site of the injection is chosen based on the patient’s symptoms. The anesthetic briefly “turns off” pain receptors and pain signals thereby allowing the body to rewire how it communicates information in the affected area back to the brain, this restores the cells’ ability to heal. In some cases, a series of injections may be utilized to cover a widespread area of pain. We have seen success anywhere from 2- 4 injections spaced one week apart.

In addition to neural therapy, our practitioners may also recommend IV therapy, prolozone injections or other supplementation to support the detoxification process and boost the long-lasting effects of neural therapy. We look forward to discussing this gentle healing process with you.
