Injection Therapy. This has also been called Biopuncture or Neural Therapy. Acupuncture has been used in the treatment of various ailments for thousands of years. New research and innovative clinical practices developed over the last 75 years have led to the development of a new and enhanced method of acupuncture treatment, known Acupoint
The concept of this kind of injection therapy was first developed in China during the 1940’s, where doctors treated patients with chronic injuries or pain by injecting sterile substances and observing positive results. After that, the treatment received considerable attention for its benefits and is now being used all across the globe.
Famous athletes have also resorted to Biopuncture therapy to speed up the recovery process of their injuries. In Denver, I am providing not only traditional acupuncture therapy, but also Acupoint injection therapy which has now gained worldwide popularity for its effectiveness.
What is Acupoint Injection Therapy?
Acupoint injection therapy involves injecting natural medicines into the muscles or under the skin to stimulate the body’s personal healing process. In Biopuncture, medicines used are sterile homeopathic substances and injections do not contain any hormonal content or cortisone. Treatment is very safe and the injections are very gentle, with little or no side effects except the possibility of a little discomfort in the area of injection.
This therapy offers an effective treatment option to those with back and neck pain, muscle strains/sprains, sciatica, arthritis, and joint pain. As it is commonly known, these conditions are quite common among athletes, be it Triathlete, or Crossfit and Endurance athletes; because of the intensity of their training all of them face acute injuries that could turn in to chronic problems down the road. Therefore, one of the best treatments to prevent invasive surgeries is to go for natural injections and get instant pain relief.
The injections are usually given at the region of pain or injury into the muscle tissue or under the skin. These sites are the same points used in acupuncture, known as Acupoints. You might need multiple injections, depending upon your condition. Acute injuries require more treatment sessions as compared to minor injuries.
What is injected in the Acupoint Injection Therapy?
The most commonly injected medicines are the ultra-low doses or micro doses, consisting mainly of the medicinal plants, sterile herbs, vitamins, glucose and or mineral based products like Saline. Lidocaine or Procaine may also be used to help with any discomfort during the procedure. These homeopathic plant and mineral based formulae were developed in Germany, and now, more than 100 million vials of these formulas are being used in United States and Europe. Sterile herb formulae have been used for decades in China and in some cases have been shown to have greater effect in less number of treatments than acupuncture alone.
These injections are made up of natural contents at FDA regulated facilities to ensure patient safetyand they stimulate the natural healing process of the body. While doing that, they do not prevent or suppress any of body’s activities to perform naturally either. Injections are very effective in reducing inflammation, swelling and pain, and promote recovery, tissue growth and fast healing. The injections also prevent weakening of ligaments and tendons and may prevent future injuries as well.
The best part of these injections is that you usually see instant improvement as soon as you get injected unlike conventional invasive therapies, where you would have to wait for ages to realize the benefits. Moreover, these injections can only be administered by specialized individual, who possess a sound knowledge. In this case, you can have peace of mind and rest assured, seeing as I am a licensed acupuncturist, specializing in the field of Sports Injury and Recovery. I have more than 6 years of graduate and postgraduate education in needling therapy, and more than 15 years experience working with athletes to help them achieve their goals. You are in good hands!
