BIOPUNCTURE: Relief through Small Injections
If you’re struggling with pain or other uncomfortable symptoms linked to inflammation, biopuncture may offer relief. This treatment is available at the Virtua Center for Integrative Medicine in Voorhees.
During a biopuncture session, the therapist gives injections of diluted natural substances under the skin or deeper into muscles and tendons. The goal is to address inflammation. Though inflammation is part of the body’s natural healing process, long-term or severe inflammation can cause damage in your body when left untreated.
Biopuncture treats inflammation-related symptoms as an alternative to commonly used anti-inflammatory medications such as steroids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories.
The homeopathic remedies used in biopuncture are intended to balance the body by reducing your pain, improving your functioning, and supporting long-term healing. Biopuncture may be useful in addressing painful and/or chronic conditions such as:
- Sprains and strains
- Joint pain
- Neck and back pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Sports injuries
- Irritable bowel syndrome
