Biopuncture Treatment Near Monroe Township, NJ – An Option for Severe or Chronic Pain
Advanced Health and Wellness Center of New Jersey is proud to offer biopuncture treatment – an innovative option for addressing severe or chronic musculoskeletal pain. This injection-based therapy, which is available at our state-of-the-art wellness center in Monroe Township, NJ, may be a suitable alternative to conventional treatments, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and steroids, for certain individuals who are dealing with persistent discomfort.
How does biopuncture differ from traditional pain management?
Biopuncture involves the injection of small doses of herbal substances (sterile, FDA-registered medicinal plant and mineral-based products and/or glucose) directly into an injured muscle, ligament, or joint. The goals of biopuncture treatment are to:
- Alleviate pain by reducing inflammation
- Enhance lymphatic drainage and circulation by stimulating the body’s immune response
- Promote the repair of damaged tissue by capitalizing on the body’s natural healing capacity
In comparison, traditional pain management strategies can often provide effective pain relief, but this is accomplished solely through inflammation reduction – these treatments do not promote tissue repair. Furthermore, because inflammation occurs naturally as the body heals, its suppression can actually inhibit healing.
What conditions can be treated with biopuncture?
Biopuncture can be effective for addressing pain in a soft tissue or joint, or in the lining of the respiratory or gastrointestinal tract. All of these tissues have cells that secrete chemicals that initiate and maintain inflammation, as well as nerves that can become chronically inflamed. Therefore, biopuncture treatment can be beneficial for treating a number of musculoskeletal issues, including sprains, strains, joint pain, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff syndrome, shoulder impingement, mild to moderate arthritis, neck pain, back pain, and nerve pain. Additionally, biopuncture can be helpful for alleviating the symptoms of asthma, hay fever, eczema, bronchitis, migraines, and irritable bowel syndrome.
