DISCLAIMER: CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR BEFORE DECIDING ON A TREATMENT PLAN FOR ANY DISEASE OR INJURY.

Needles like this one are filled with a local anesthetic that will be injected into specific points in the body in order to encourage healing.

Neural therapy is a type of alternative therapy that utilizes local anesthetic that is injected into specific trigger points throughout the body in an attempt to replenish blood flow to different areas and ultimately heal disease and/or chronic pain. Neural therapy is also intended to help reset the autonomic nervous system and reduce inflammation in the body (which, in the case of autoimmune disorders, can be essential components of recovery). 

 

This type of therapy is usually administered by a licensed medical doctor who has been trained specifically in neural therapy (people who aren’t doctors aren’t allowed to perform neural therapy in the United States). The anesthetics used differ, but lidocaine and procaine are the most commonly used local anesthetics in neural therapy. When searching for a doctor who can administer this kind of therapy, keep in mind that some practitioners may refer to neural therapy as therapeutic LA (localized anesthetic) or prolotherapy (which differs slightly in that it may or may not use local anesthetics in the injections, but rather may use a different solution). 

 

Besides Guillain-Barre Syndrome, other disorders and underlying health problems that neural therapy may treat include: 

 

 

Since Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a neurological autoimmune disorder, working directly with the nervous system by using neural therapy could help reset the nervous system and reduce an autoimmune reaction. Though the research into neural therapy’s use in GBS is extremely limited (if not practically nonexistent), there is one specific study into the successful use of neural therapy in the treatment of Bell’s palsy (though somewhat different, most experts consider Bell’s palsy and GBS to be along the same disease spectrum). 

 

In this study, a 42-year-old man with Bell’s palsy was administered neural therapy over the course of 4 weeks. During the first week, he received 3 sessions of neural therapy. In the subsequent 3 weeks, he received 1 session of neural therapy each week. After the treatment had finished, the patient had no sign of any of his previous symptoms and had no recurrence of symptoms afterwards. There were also no adverse events that were reported either during or after the neural therapy treatment. 

 

During the man’s treatment, most injections occurred in the face area, close to where the paralysis had occurred. The autonomic ganglia were also injected. Neural therapy practitioners may inject anesthetic into trigger points (“pain points”), peripheral nerves, autonomic ganglia, scar tissue, acupuncture points, or other areas of the body according to the condition meant to be treated. Thus, the practitioner in this study would have chosen the points specifically according to the man’s situation.
