Biopuncture – An Alternative Treatment for Chronic Pain Available in Freehold, NJ
Biopuncture treatment is an injection-based therapy that can be used to treat chronic pain and inflammation. Advanced Health and Wellness Center of New Jersey in Freehold, NJ, offers this innovative option as a complement or alternative to traditional therapy. This approach can be particularly beneficial in cases where conventional treatments, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and steroid injections, are ineffective, unsuitable, or produce severe side effects.
Biopuncture treatment involves an injection of a small amount of sterile, FDA-registered homeopathic or vitamin liquid into a pain origin point, such as a tender superficial nerve, inflamed tissue, or knotted muscle, in order to stimulate the body’s natural ability to repair soft tissue. The two most commonly injected substances are ultra-low doses of medicinal plant- and mineral-based products or glucose.
At Advanced Health and Wellness Center of New Jersey in Freehold, we may recommend biopuncture treatment to address a number of common musculoskeletal conditions and injuries, including:
- Joint pain
- Sprains and strains
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shoulder impingement
- Rotator cuff syndrome
- Neck and back pain
While not intended to be used as a stand-alone treatment, biopuncture usually produces the best results when combined with good nutrition, which can further improve the body’s healing capacity and lessen tissue inflammation. Exercise and physical therapy are also important treatments that should be used alongside biopuncture to enhance strength, endurance, and posture, which can help reduce the likelihood of recurrent pain.
In most cases, very small needles are used for biopuncture. The injections are usually well tolerated, even by patients who describe themselves as “needle phobic.” Depending on the nature and severity of the condition being treated, it may take a few weeks or months for a patient to experience noticeable symptom improvement.
