Acupuncture point Injection Therapy (also known as acupoint injection therapy, biopuncture, and aquapuncture) entails the injection of small amounts of saline or other substances (e.g., herbal extracts, drugs, homeopathic substances, vitamin B12, and vitamin K) into acupuncture points/trigger points by qualified acupuncturists. Similar to acupuncture, fine needles are inserted into acupuncture points/trigger points just under the skin or into muscles. A trigger point is a highly-sensitive spot in a skeletal muscle that causes a great deal of pain, tenderness, and often a twitch response when pressure is applied. The trigger point is a group of muscle fibers that is pulled into a tight knot. This affects nerves in the area, radiating pain to other body parts.
By stimulating powerful acupuncture points with proven natural substances, we can affect the body on a deeper level and stimulate the healing response.
AIT is particularly effective for the resolution of acute and chronic pain in the body, particularly in the shoulder, back, knee, and neck. AIT techniques are supportive of weight loss, allergies, and collagen stimulation. AIT earned well-deserved attention in early 2011 and again in 2014 when Dr. Mehmet Oz featured the therapy on his television show.
Traumeel Injections are highly sought after natural, homeopathic treatments for conditions that cause painful inflammation. Traumeel is composed of botanical extracts that has been largely overlooked as a remedy for pain and chronic inflammation in the United States for over 80 years, until the results achieved in European clinics received recognition. Athletes would often travel to Europe to receive such care for sports injuries to encourage faster, drug-free healing of injuries.
Traumeel is primarily composed of arnica montana root, a plant extract that is commonly used in tablets and creams to relieve pain and inflammation. Zeel is available in similar formats and is best used for joint inflammation. Dr. Hackett also provides injections of Trammel and Zeel for healing of muscle and connective tissue and reduction of chronic inflammation.
Your immune system initially responds to injury with an inflammatory process that includes swelling and warmth at the injury site caused by increased blood flow to the area of trauma. The body automatically responds this way to transport immune system cells to combat infection, eliminate foreign materials, and repairing body cells. This is the effective means of the beginning of the healing process to preserve and repair the integrity of the body.
Chronic inflammation is the immune system’s overreaction to excess stress on body systems or joints, foreign substances (chemicals, incomplete digestion of food particles [Leaky Gut Syndrome]) then developing excess heat, pain, tender joints, digestive problems, and swelling. The underlying issues for chronic inflammation are multiple, but will continue to trigger as long as stressors are present. Traumeel and Zeel help the body reduce overall inflammation, swelling, and pain.
Traumeel and Zeel Injections treat a variety of musculoskeletal inflammation based conditions. Soft tissue injuries respond best to Traumeel treatment, including muscles ligaments, and tendons. Zeel is most helpful to those who experience chronic inflammation, like athletes who may have a weak area or body part that they overuse during performance. The injections do not penetrate synovial sacs or abnormal growths. Some common conditions that may benefit from Traumeel injections are:
Traumeel and Zeel Injections are homeopathic treatments, meaning the medicinal agent is completely derived from specific dilutions of plant extracts and minerals found in nature. Because the solution is mostly plant based, there are little to no side effects, including allergic reactions which are extremely rare. The absence of other effects makes Traumeel an anti-inflammatory treatment that can be used as often as necessary. Corticosteroids, though safe when regulated by a physician, may have adverse effects if used too often. Corticosteroids can target soft tissue cells, causing them to shrink if exposed to the medication at long periods of time, so they are rarely ever administered more than once every six months. Due to the varying response patients have to corticosteroid treatment, inflammation may begin again before this time period. Traumeel and Zeel may be an effective alternative to patients who do not respond fully to corticosteroid injections or a stop gap treatment to maintain safe intervals of corticosteroid injections.
Traumeel and Zeel injections are most effective when administered immediately after injury. Communication between patient and physician is essential since the dosage of Traumeel given at each injection can be based on the reaction of the patient. Traumeel injections are natural and homeopathic, so they may be repeated until symptoms disappear as routine therapy.
You should wear loose comfortable clothing to the injection appointment. A sterile needle will be inserted into or near the inflamed area and the arnica based medicine injected directly into the affected area. Some tenderness of the area may occur during the injection, but most patients barely feel them. Depending on how deeply the needle may need to penetrate, the injection site may be sore for a few days, but again this is not typical. Most people experience greater comfort. Traumeel or Zeel cream or gel applied to the area usually dull any pain while it dissipates.
If you have underlying issues of digestive problems, another treatment plan can be implemented to help your body heal by supporting the biological imperative toward homeostasis and systems integrity.
