When should I consider Biopuncture Injection Therapy?
Those who are in consideration of the potential side effects/risks with corticosteroids for pain relief are a prime example. But there are even more uses for Biopuncture Injection Therapy besides just pain relief. In general, Biopuncture is also useful for conditions that are not responding as quickly to conventional approaches and to speed up recovery times for many conditions. In our clinic treatments are provided for:
-Pain Relief (acute and chronic)- relief of muscular pain, inflammation, sports injuries, bruising, minor joint pain, and stiffness
-Internal medicine chronic conditions
-Core/pelvic floor strengthening
-Anti-aging skincare/facial rejuvenation
–Nutritional deficiencies (such as B12; for temporary relief)
How does Biopuncture work?
Biopuncture Injection Therapy utilizes the injection of FDA approved liquid medicine (homeopathic, herbal, vitamin and sometimes analgesic) into acupuncture points or trigger points to prevent or treat disease. It is one of the more integrated treatment strategies available to us in the 21st century. It combines the actions of acupuncture with homeopathic biomedical pharmaceuticals that are FDA regulated.
How often should I get an injection?
In most cases, once a week, preferably the same day each week. This varies by person and by intended goal for treatment. You will receive specific recommendations for your case upon completing the Initial Consultation.
What is the dosage amount?
1ml-10ml; sometimes in combination of remedies
How large are the needles?
Typically 27-30 gauge needles are used; about the size of a diabetic insulin syringe.
Is it painful?
Each person’s pain tolerance is unique, but most people indicate feeling a slight pinch upon insertion and often times a slight pressure in the area. Most people say the pain is very minimal and certainly tolerable with the results they receive from treatment.
