Biopuncture describes any therapeutic measure that uses biotherapeutics (botanical compounds, vitamins, minerals and antihomotoxic), which are medical products that don’t suppress neuro-immunological reactions or interfere with the body’s natural defence system.
Biopuncture is used as an alternative to cortisone injections, where mainstream medicine has failed or shows too many side effects, and is often used to complement conventional medical practices.
These remedies can be injected into reflex zones (to treat organs), acupuncture points, trigger points in muscle, joints, ligaments, connective tissue and blood vessels.
Injecting target tissue, rather than taking oral remedies, allows the patient’s body to heal where it’s really needed and will provide more immediate and effective results.
It is important to note that conditions such as a depressed immune system, hormonal dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies, Diabetes, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and high doses of prostaglandin-inhibitors may decrease the efficacy of Biopuncture.
The following conditions can be treated with Biopuncture:
- Neck/back Pain
- Muscular Injury (e.g. Tennis Elbow, Golfers Elbow, Muscular Strains, Muscular Inflammation, Acute Muscle Spasms)
- Ligament Injury (e.g. Sprained Ankle)
- Neuropathic Pain
- Neurogenic Pain
- Post Traumatic Pain
- Migraine, Tension Headaches, Cluster Headaches
- Frozen Shoulder
What to expect after needling
Following needling, there will be signs of ‘true healing’ as the injection interacts with the body.
- Redness and swelling at the injection site for a few days following treatment.
- Inflammation as the injection restarts a previously suppressed healing process.
- Muscle stiffness due to changes in that muscles capacity following injections.
- Fatigue for a few hours or days as your energy resources are directed to healing.
