Neural therapy has been around since 1940, it was founded when a medical doctor first injected a solution into a scar. The therapy involves a solution that contains a non-addictive local anesthetic, procaine, to help reset interference within the nervous system. Interference within the nervous system can be secondary to many different things including muscular overuse, scars, physical trauma, emotional trauma, chronic stress, lifestyle, diet or disease. By injecting both superficially and deep over specific areas of the body, trained practitioners can help many different conditions. Some of the most commonly treated conditions include the following:
Post Concussion Syndrome
Medicine Uptake Enhancement
Trigger Point Therapy
