Acupuncture Injection Therapy
Acupuncture injection therapy involves the injection of homeopathic solutions or vitamins administered by qualified acupuncturists. Like acupuncture, fine needles are inserted into acupuncture points or trigger points just under the skin or into muscles. As the name suggests, this therapy evolved from acupuncture and has long been a therapy used by acupuncturists in China. It isn’t a replacement for Acupuncture or Chiropractic, but can be a great adjunct therapy. Acupuncture injection therapy can be used for stubborn pain conditions like arthritis and gout. A more modern approach incorporates the injection of vitamins such as B-12 for energy or Lipotropic Amino Acids for Weight Loss.
Athletes are among the many patients that find the most benefit of acupuncture injection therapy as it can be used for injuries and rehabilitation to avoid the nasty side effects of cortisone injections. Likewise, many marathoners and triathletes enjoy the boost of B-12 injections when preparing for a long race.
Any of our doctors can speak with you more about this therapy and if it is appropriate for your condition.
Homeopathic Injections are compounded specifically for the ailments a patient comes in with. They offer an alternative to cortisone injections and anti-inflammatories and can be combined with Vitamin Injections without interaction. At Active Living Health Center, we offer Lake Nona and the surrounding areas a natural alternative to pain relief and injury repair. Below is a list of vitamin injections that we currently offer.
