If you have been suffering from pain, swelling, inflammation or toxic accumulation, you may want to try a new therapy now being offered at The Urban Athlete: Biopuncture.
As the name suggests, biopuncture is a distinct form of injection therapy that combines acupuncture with homeopathy and botanical medicine. It is an effective alternative to taking conventional pain medications that work by suppressing pain and inflammation. Eventually, the pharmaceutical drugs you take for the pain stop working and you need additional doses to stop the pain once again.
Biopuncture on the other hand, works by stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities.
It triggers your immune system to begin the reparation of tissues, increasing blood flow and bringing essential nutrients to cells in the area of concern.
Injections are given just under the skin, locally where needed and/or in specific acupuncture points on the body. The needles used are very fine and the quantity of solution injected is small, minimizing any discomfort. Many people that are generally nervous about needles are surprised at how easily and quickly injections are given.
When should you consider this kind of treatment?
An initial intake with your naturopath is required to determine if biopuncture is right for you. It is a form of therapy that is often integrated with other treatments. For example, it can be combined with chiropractic, osteopathic, massage therapy or other techniques.
Biopuncture is effective in treating a variety of conditions:
- Musculoskeletal pain (neck, back, shoulder, knee, etc..)
- Tendon issues (golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, patellar tendonitis..)
- Sports injuries
- Seasonal allergies
- Menstrual irregularities
- Detoxification, etc…
