What Are the Benefits and Risks of Neural Therapy?

2019-06-25T16:56:22-05:00

Understanding Neural Therapy Injections Neural therapy is a pain relief treatment option using superficial skin injections to promote healing of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). When trauma occurs to the body, an interference field is created which interrupts and redirects electrical signals sent through the ANS. The resulting miscommunications lead to pain elsewhere in the body, seemingly unrelated to the original injury. Neural therapy injection therapy from Dr. Neal Pollack in Milwaukee restores the communication of the ANS to stop pain and promote healing. As with all medical procedures, there are a variety of benefits and risks patients need to understand before treatment. [...]

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Benefits

2019-06-25T17:10:05-05:00

Alternative Treatments for Chronic Back Pain Surgery on the spine is incredibly risky, not to mention highly invasive. Fortunately, there are less invasive alternatives available. Non-surgical spinal decompression, also known as lumbar decompression, is the practice of relieving pain in the back or spine non-surgically. Distraction forces are applied precisely to spinal structures, like injured discs, followed by cycles of partial relaxation. This revolutionary treatment option is available at the Milwaukee pain clinic of Neurology & Pain Treatment. There are many causes of back pain, from injuries to degenerative joint diseases. Lumbar non-surgical decompression is aimed at chronic back problems, including: [...]

Neural Therapy

2019-06-25T17:01:09-05:00

This is a superficial skin injection technique frequently given around scars, nerves, trigger points, and autonomic tissue. It works by eliminating abnormal electrical interference fields and regulating abnormal nervous systems (ANS) functioning. Malfunction of the ANS may produce pain, confusion, visual dysfunction, sinusitis, skin disease, arthritis, and many chronic degenerative conditions. Three to six treatments are the average needed to achieve lasting improvements. Every case though must be evaluated individually.

Botox Injections for Chronic Pain

2019-06-25T17:02:23-05:00

Botox Injections for Chronic Pain Many people are unaware that BOTOX® injections are used not only to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but also for chronic pain control, including back and nerve pain. Pain management and other alternative uses for BOTOX ® therapy have shown how versatile and effective this treatment is. What is a Botox injection? Tight muscles can cause migraine headaches, torticollis and myofascial pain syndromes throughout the body.
