It is the treatment of various diseases, especially pain, by injections using some local anesthetics. It is a complementary medicine and regulation therapy. It can be applied as a supportive treatment together with conventional medical treatments, or it can be curative alone. Neural therapy is, first of all, a treatment approach with a holistic perspective. Not only the problematic area of the patient, but also the whole system is taken into consideration during the evaluation and treatment process.
It is a treatment method that has a history of approximately 100 years, has been accepted by the world health organization and is applied in many countries. It is applied by physicians who have received neural therapy training.
How is neural therapy applied?
Some local anesthetics are injected in a variety of sizes, but usually using small, thin injector tips. Injections are applied to specific points or areas in terms of free nerve endings, vascular structure and lymphatic system.
When neuraltherapy injection is made; both the stimulating effect of the needle and the bioelectrical regulating effect of the local anesthetic agent come into play. The neural therapy application puts the system to rest for a while and thus returns it to its factory settings. Neural therapy aims not to stop the complaint, but to find and regulate the impaired regulation system that causes the complaint.
Treatment is done in sessions. Session intervals are adjusted to be 3-4 days in acute cases and 7-14 days in chronic problems. The duration of treatment may vary between 3-10 sessions depending on the patient and the course of the disease.
In which situations is neural therapy applied?
It can be a solution for many acute and chronic diseases, especially chronic diseases that are resistant to classical treatment. Some of those; headaches (migraine, tension-type headaches), trigeminal neuralgia, neck, back, low back pain, some joint diseases, problems due to nerve compression, allergic asthma and other allergic origin diseases, intestinal diseases (irritable bowel disease, chronic constipation, chron, ulcerative colitis, post-shingles pain syndromes, hormonal disorders, reproductive function disorders, circulatory disorders, restless legs syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, depression, panic attacks, sleep disorders, detoxification purposes, antiaging (healthy aging/ anti-aging).
Neural therapy is a very useful form of treatment with minimal side effects if applied correctly, in the right hands, by choosing the appropriate treatment method for the appropriate patient.
