There are two distinct injection therapies performed at Stellar Health and Wellness Clinic; B12 Injections and Neural Therapy. These two treatments are designed to address two specific issues; B12 injections address deficiencies caused by poor digestion, alcohol consumption, disorders of the immune system, vegetarian diet, etc. Neural Therapy is used to decrease musculoskeletal pain.
As an oral supplement, B12 is rendered mostly useless during the digestive process. A more effective way to supplement B12 is with 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 to help relax muscles and restore mobility. A solution is injected in a very superficial layer of the skin, interrupting pain signals, breaking patterns of abnormal nerve firing and acting as a potent anti-inflammatory. This treatment can be very beneficial for both acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain.
