Integrative Spine and Sports offers alternative injection therapy in Manhattan, NY. Biopuncture using Traumeel is a holistic and natural alternative to cortisone. Traumeel injections are one of the several treatment options offered at our spine and sports medicine practice that is designed to address symptoms of pain and inflammation due to acute injury or chronic overuse conditions such IT band syndrome and hip bursitis.
Biopuncture is a safe, effective micro-injection therapy used to treat common incidences of pain and inflammatory conditions. It works by introducing ultra-low doses of plant-based and mineral-based formulas or glucose directly into targeted areas of the body that are experiencing pain and inflammation. These “mini” injections are designed to stimulate the body’s natural healing process in order to produce a faster healing response. Healing comes from the natural response of the body’s immune system to the injected products, rather than from the products themselves.
Dr. Sonali Lal, M.D., a board-certified physician specializing in spine and sports medicine, is experienced in the use of biopuncture as part of a comprehensive approach in the treatment of pain and inflammation.
The advanced alternative treatment can be used to treat pain and inflammation in soft tissues, such as muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons. Common conditions treated by biopuncture include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Nerve pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shoulder impingement
- Rotator cuff pain
- Scar pain
Biopuncture should be used as part of a comprehensive pain management approach and is not intended to be used as a stand-alone treatment. The alternative treatment is often combined with good nutrition practices, as well as physical therapy and rehabilitation. Good nutrition improves a body’s natural ability to heal and reduce inflammation, while rehabilitation helps patients improve strength, flexibility, mobility and endurance.
