15 Uses of Neural Therapy


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:

  1. Pain Management

  • resetting the nervous system can greatly reduce otherwise untreatable pain, both acute and chronic

  1. Post Concussion Syndrome

  • reduce brain fog and headaches secondary to traumatic brain injury

  1. Medicine Uptake Enhancement

  • by injecting over certain areas there is an increase of blood flow and in turn an increase of medicine uptake to the area

  1. Adrenal Support

  • important for the management of chronic stress, fatigue, and excess cortisol production

  1. Liver Support

  • important for aiding in detoxification, as well as chronic/acute liver conditions

  1. Insomnia

  • by resetting the nervous system many patients experience improved sleep quality

  1. Lung Conditions

  • reduce inflammation in the lung tissue while improving lung capacity

  1. Scar Treatment

  • reduce the appearance of scars as well as reduce fascial restrictions caused by scars

  1. Sympathetic Dominance

  • when the body is chronically in "fight and flight” mode it isn’t able to heal to the same level as when it is in “rest and digest” or parasympathetic mode. Neural therapy helps reset the nervous system allowing it to freely transfer back and forth between the two modes as needed

  1. Digestive Disturbances

  • by injecting over the large and small intestine neural therapy can help reduce digestive disturbances

  1. Trigger Point Therapy

  • reduce pain and trigger points through neural therapy

  1. Sinus Issues

  • reduce symptoms of both chronic and acute sinus issues

  1. Tonsil/Adenoid Issues

  • reduce symptoms of both chronic and acute tonsil and adenoid issues

  1. Thyroid Issues

  • this includes support in treating hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism and goiters

  1. Anxiety/Panic Attacks

  • resetting the nervous system is key in treating anxiety and panic attacks and can be very useful in acute situations
