Once regarded with skepticism by the medical establishment, neural therapy - injecting procaine and lidocaine into specific nerve and tissue sites to restore proper bioelectrical function - is rapidly gaining worldwide acceptance as an effective complement to orthodox medical techniques. This has been bolstered by the large number of studies by well-know physicians establishing that the results obtained by neural therapy are firmly grounded in modern scientific research. In Germany, where it was first developed in the 1920s, an estimated 50% of all medical practitioners use neural therapy techniques to treat a wide range of conditions. Now, with the second edition of this classic teaching atlas, you have at hand the principles and techniques of neural therapy - all demonstrated with exceptionally clear, full-color photographs. The accompanying text gives full instructions on administering the injections, including indications, materials and techniques, plus insertion point, direction and depth. This new edition features many key revisions and updates: * More than 150 vivid, full-color photographs and illustrations that highlight neural therapy techniques in every anatomic region * Indications, materials and techniques shown for all injection procedures* Insertion point, direction and depth given for each injection * Cautions that alert you to possible complications and how to avoid them* Separate sections focusing on dental procedures and segmental therapy techniques With its detailed depictions of neural therapy techniques and protocols, this acclaimed book is a useful refresher for experienced practitioners and a valuable visual introduction for newcomers looking to add neural therapy to their medical armory. This insider view is the definitive guide for performing neural therapy - a must-have for all practitioners open to this fast-growing treatment area.
