Biopuncture Natural Pain Management

When Should Biopuncture Be Suggested? 

Biopuncture can't solve all your medical problems. It is not a miracle therapy. It is up to your physician to decide what can be treated, and what can't. A lot of patients choose to be treated with Biopuncture because they have experienced unwanted side effects of conventional painkillers.

However, it is important to realize that Biopuncture isn't designed to "take away" the pain as with conventional medication.

Pain is seen as an important "signal" from your body that something is going wrong. It is similar to a red light on the dashboard of your car: the aim is not to just "remove it" but to look for the deeper cause. This means that if pain can be alleviated with Biopuncture - without prescribing painkillers or without surgery - there is good reason to conclude that the deeper cause of that particular pain has been eliminated.

The treatment for inflammation is similar. Inflammation goes with pain and swelling and that is uncomfortable, but the inflammation is also a crucial part of tissue repair and healing. Instead of blocking the inflammation with medication (taking anti-inflammatories or receiving a series of local steroid injections), biopuncturists try to regulate the inflammation (if possible) in order to support the natural healing mechanisms.

Neck pain and back pain respond well to Biopuncture, but one can also treat ankle sprains, pain in the shoulder and Achilles tendonitis using these natural products.  Biopuncture is also very successful in treating tennis elbow and golf elbow. However, Biopuncture is not just used for pain problems, osteoarthritis or sports injuries. An area of treatment worth noting is that of allergies and inflammations. For example, one can treat asthma, eczema and hay fever. And even patients with bronchitis, cystitis and sinusitis can be treated with this technique. When a physician is experienced in the technique, he or she can also treat you for migraine, tension headache, sciatica, and so on.
