Injuries often cause electrochemical disturbances in adjacent (or even distant) tissues that can lead to chronic pain. These electrophysiological disturbances -- known as “interference patterns” -- emanate from scars or other bodily injuries. Procaine (an anesthetic) has long been known to reset nerve fiber potential, calming the nerves down and allowing them to regain normal function and stop emitting pain signals. Neural therapy involves superficial injections of procaine into scar tissue and/or other painful areas (as determined by a comprehensive physical exam). Over a course of neural therapy treatments, interference patterns can begin to dissipate and diminish or eliminate the associated pain. Old scars often begin to break up and give way to less dense, healthier tissue.
