Neural therapy is used in conjunction with other therapies to help a person get well.
Neural therapy is a system of healing that works with your autonomic (meaning "works on its own") nervous system to unblock areas of stagnation and help create balance.
Neural therapy is a form of injection therapy that is helpful for scars one might incur from injuries and surgery. This form of therapy will help release the scars' impact on the body's ability to function fully. Neural therapy is especially indicated when a person has scar pain continuing long after the scar was formed. The scar usually has to be 6-8 weeks old. Dr. Christopher Kozura has treated a 30 year old scar where pain was resolved in 3 treatments. The patient had no idea where the chronic pain was originating from.
Scar treatment is just one area of Neural therapy. The use of an anesthetic is one way to reboot the nervous system as a whole. Neural therapy has roots back to origins of anesthetics. Doctors like Vischnevski found that novocaine (procaine) reduced inflammation in 1906, and in 1928 Leriche and Fontaine observed that fractures healed better and more quickly with the injection of procaine into the fracture line.
When an organ is not functioning well neural therapy is also used to "segmentally" treat the underlying organ. This done by putting small amounts of procaine under the skin at the level corresponding to that organ.
Conditions that can be treated by neural therapy are: chronic pain, sinusitus, tonsilitis, hypothyroidism, headaches, trigeminal neuralgia, herpes zoster (shingles) pain, gastroesphogeal reflux, hepatitis, irritable bladder, painful tail bone, asthma (no acute attacks), chronic cough, scars throughout most of body that are causing pain, cesarian scars and more.
