What is neural therapy?

Neural therapy is the use of pure local anesthetics for diagnosis and therapy. It has been known since 1884, but has been researched little despite its global use. In Germany it is considered complementary medicine and is a frequently used method (Joos et al. 2009).

Typical indications are:

  • acute and chronic pain disorders
  • chronic functional disorders
  • mood disorders
  • chronic recurrent inflammation.
