What is neural therapy?
Neural therapy is an injection treatment that stimulates healing and is an effective option for chronic pain, especially in the complex pain patient.
How does it work?
Neural therapy helps to diagnose and treat pain and disturbances in the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The autonomic nervous system is the part of your body that regulates involuntary functions such as immune function, blood pressure, circulation, breathing, hormones, digestion, and other automatic body functions. When the ANS is disturbed (such as from an injury, surgery, trauma or infection) these internal functions will not perform at optimal levels and can lead to long-standing chronic pain or illness. In addition, pain can sometimes present in abnormal ways and in other parts of the body separate from the trauma site. Dr. Kramer works to first detect these disturbance sites, called interference fields, and then provides a treatment plan to repair the damaged sites using localized anesthetic injections.
Is it safe?
Yes. Neural therapy typically involves using a diluted procaine that works with your body’s natural healing ability to stabilize cell membranes and normalize the physiology of the tissues, resulting in full healing not just masking the pain.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments is dependent on your condition, history, and how your body responds to the injections. Most often, 2 to 6 treatments are needed. Dr. Kramer will work with you to develop the best treatment plan for your health and complete healing.
