Neural Therapy

Neural Therapy: Overview

Neural Therapy (NT) is a treatment system for chronic pain and illness using injection of a local anesthetic (usually procaine, also known as Novocaine) into autonomic ganglia, peripheral nerves, scars, glands, and trigger points.  It is believed to act through normalizing the function of the nervous system.

NT as a comprehensive healing system is unknown to most doctors in the United States.  In German-speaking countries it is a widely used modality for the treatment of chronic pain.  Four theories are used to explain the dramatic effects neural therapy injection can have on illness or pain.  A series of injections is usually advised.

Function

Scars receive particular attention based on the theory that if one of them cuts across an acupuncture meridian, it can be expected to impact the corresponding acupuncture site, as well as adjacent joints.  For example, a nasty scar from gallbladder surgery might be the source of problems in the shoulder.  Neural therapists are especially suspicious of scars that haven't faded with time, or seem to be pulling the surrounding skin, or feel hard.  In some cases, an electrical imbalance may stem from nothing more than metal eyeglass frames, jewelry, or dental fillings.  Removing the offending object or replacing the fillings with plastic may be all that is necessary to produce improvement.
