Sometimes our bodies need a little boost. A direct way of getting your body exactly what it needs is injection therapy. At Stellar Health & Wellness we offer two types of injection therapies to help give your body that extra boost that might be missing.
Vitamin B12 is needed to produce DNA and cellular components of all cells in the body. Deficiency can be caused by poor digestion, alcohol consumption, disorders of the immune system, vegetarian diet and more. Although many people try to replace B12 via oral supplementation, this simply isn’t effective. This is because the digestive process renders much of ingested B12 useless to the body.
A more appropriate means of replacement is an intramuscular injection. Common symptoms of deficiency are depression, fatigue, poor memory, numbness or tingling, digestive complaints and more. The injection is given in either your upper arm or hip. The most common side effect is low level pain at the injection site lasting for up to 2 days as well as a boost in energy!
Neural therapy is an injection therapy targeted at decreasing musculoskeletal pain. Dr. Della commonly uses this treatment in conjunction with trigger point injections to help relax muscles and restore mobility.
The solution is injected in a very superficial layer of the skin. It acts to interrupt pain signals, break patterns of abnormal nerve firing, as well as become a potent anti-inflammatory at the site of abnormality. This treatment can be very beneficial for both acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. Treatment is generally provided weekly for 2-4 weeks and then monthly based on the patient’s progress.
