What is Biopuncture or Biomesotherapy?
A common therapy administered in Europe at the rate of 70 million treatments per year dating back to the mid- 50s.
Biopuncture utilises homoeopathic medications and the stimulation of specific points, called ‘trigger points’ with a saline solution. The solution is injected subcutaneously, into specific acupuncture points. The needles are very fine, much like acupuncture needles. Pain or discomfort is minimal to non-existent.
Biopuncture is most useful in the regulation of acute and chronic musculo-skeletal conditions ranging from the pain of sprains and strains, to muscle trauma to osteoarthritis.
Often injured ligament or tendons becomes the source of chronic pain especially at the point where it is attached to the bone. Injection of a saline solution at appropriate points draws the body’s natural healing processes to the afflicted area by improving circulation to the site of the injury. Additionally, the inclusion of selectively chosen homoeopathic formulations hastens and assists the action.
Medications which are administered are cortisone free and are free of unpleasant side effects associated with other anti-inflammatory medications.
Unlike conventional anti-inflammatory drugs which tend to mask the pain, Biopuncture is a technique which, by its very nature, not only reduces the inflammation but speeds the repair process at the same time.
So even with conditions such as cartilage injury, degenerative disc diseases, arthritis, sciatica, neck pain, back pain and sporting injuries Biopuncture will assist in eradicating the chronic pain of these and other painful conditions.
Sessions are for approximately half an hour. Depending on the severity of the condition, treatment is often twice weekly for the first two weeks and as the healing process progresses, treatments become weekly, fortnightly or monthly until complete resolution occurs.
