Neural Therapy

Neural therapy is a treatment for chronic pain that is vary popular in Europe and South America. It involves injection of small amounts of a local anesthetic into strategic points.

Neural therapy was discovered by a German physician Ferdinand Hueneke in 1940. Proponents of the therapy theorize that injuries, surgical procedures, and scars can create local disturbances in the autonomic nervous system that actually change the electrical fields of the body, often causing pain or dysfunction at remote sites. Injecting a local anesthetic at the original place of disruption neutralizes or depolarizes the local disturbance and relieves the pain in the distant affected area. A series of treatments may break the aberrant neurological pattern. The trick is to find the scar, the gland, or the trigger point that's causing the symptoms - it could be as ordinary as an appendix scar.

Very often dramatic results are obtained with neural therapy. The patients may be able to freely, painlessly move the painful muscles immediately after receiving the injection. This reaction is often described as "lightning reaction."
