While acupuncture alone can bring relieve to most pain conditions, some chronic pain issues, such as arthritis, sciatica, shoulder, low back or knee pain, can be better served with the addition of point injection therapy. When dealing with acute spasms, strains and sprains, using point injection therapy immediately can bring an immense relief and speed up the healing process.
Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy (APIT), is the injection of homeopathic substances, vitamins, or Chinese herbs into acupuncture points to increase the effects of the treatment and the specific point indications. This technique is often used to treat pain, arthritis, disc bulges, and to benefit the nerves. Some substances also act as natural antibiotics and promote general health.
Traumeel is an outstanding combination homeopathic remedy that can be used for many aches and pains. Traumeel has been used to help people recover from sprained joints, strained / pulled muscles, bruises, nerve pain, swelling, post-surgical pain and to speed wound healing. It is also very effective for all types of arthritis pain. It also offers effective treatment without gastrointestinal side effects.
Recent research indicates Traumeel injections are as effective for pain as conventional treatments including narcotic painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications. Studies indicate Traumeel injections seem to act by significantly speeding up the healing process instead of blocking the development of edema (swelling) from the beginning (for an injury).
