HOMEOPATHIC INJECTIONS at SE1 London Bridge City Clinic Group
For an effective, natural alternative to steroids
Injection techniques that use homeopathic medicines to stimulate the natural self-healing abilities of the body were developed to offer an effective, safe alternative to cortisone (steroid) injections.
While cortisone injections work to reduce the local inflammatory response and severity of pain, and have an analgesic effect that may last for several weeks, cortisone injections are not suitable for all patients, and research has shown that repeated cortisone injections, particularly with long-term use, can potentially contribute to/cause a number of possible side effects such as, suppression of the immune system; insomnia, mood swings, and depression; fetal malformations when given in high doses in pregnancy; irregular bleeding following the monthly cycle; increased intra-ocular pressure; and bradycardia and hypotension.
Homeopathic injection techniques aim to regulate inflammation in order to support the natural healing mechanisms of the body. Low doses of the natural, active substances are injected, making any toxic side effects very unlikely, and allowing for the slow assimilation of natural medicines into the body.
With homeopathic injections side effects are very rare and are usually limited to some slight bruising and/or irritation at the injection site or the risk of allergic reaction that exists with any injection.
Homeopathic injections promote healing and pain relief with non-addictive, well-tolerated, natural supplements, and are used at City Clinic to effectively treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Muscle strains and tears
- Neck and back pain
- Frozen shoulder
- Joint pain and arthritis
- Sprained joints
- Repetitive strain injuries RSI
- Hand and thumb problems
(including De Quervain’s tenosynovitis)
- Achilles tendinopathy (tendonitis)
- Sports injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Trigger points*
* Trigger points are painful bands of tissue, or ‘knots’, that can form in any muscle group and can often be felt under the skin. They can irritate the nerves around them and cause a deep aching feeling and/or pain. By injecting into a trigger point, the trigger point is made inactive and the pain is relieved. A brief course of treatment will usually lead to sustained relief.
The massage applied is very deep and penetrates to the fascia tissue aiding relaxation and toning for dysfunctional muscles.
Natural Products - The products we use at City Clinic Group are scientifically based, modern homeopathic injectables that gently activate the body’s self-healing powers.
The homeopathic injectables contain 14 natural ingredients, at varying concentrations, each one having a known beneficial effect on inflammation or the healing process, with no side effects.
By now many of us are familiar with the theory of how homeopathic medicines can be used to treat injuries and painful conditions. Homeopathy aims to stimulate the body to heal itself by giving small amounts of bio-herbal ingredients, which in large amounts may cause the condition for which you are being treated – the principle of treating ‘like with like’. The idea is loosely related to the idea behind vaccines.
When pain manifests itself and does not respond to conventional cortisone injections a patient can be left looking for an answer.
City Clinic Group’s homeopathic injections can offer you an alternative.
Small Injections Under the Skin - Treatment follows a technique developed by Dr. John Lyftogt, whereby a series of injections are given just underneath the skin using a very fine needle, targeting pain. These tiny injections do not target tendons, ligaments or joints; they aim to help repair the connective tissue in the nerves just below the skin. These skin nerves consist of up to 80% connective tissue, are structurally similar to tendons and ligaments, and are known to be responsible for many painful conditions. There is now compelling scientific evidence that, lying beneath the skin, the nociceptors (pain receptors) of the very small nerves (nervi nervorum) innervating the nerve trunks are responsible for inflammation of the connective tissue of the nerve trunk and its surrounding tissues. Nociceptors are highly sensitive to tissue damage and transmit information about pain to the brain via the nerve pathways throughout the body. When the pathways are disrupted, or messages are ‘scrambled’, it can lead to neuralgia and neuropathic pain.
When minute doses of injectables are administered they assist in the repair of connective tissue via the nerve supply under the skin.
It is also known that this neurogenic inflammation differs from conventional inflammation in that it does not respond to anti-inflammatories or cortisone injections. It is clear from clinical observations on more than three thousand patients and large case series that neural injections can be highly effective in reversing neurogenic inflammation and resolving neuralgia pain.
Each course of treatment typically involves 3-6 sessions of tiny injections, made just under the skin with a very small needle.
The skin is temporarily frozen with an ice spray numbing the area prior to injection the area is then with real time ultra sound used to guide the needle into the correct location. A thorough consultation before injection is always recommended to determine the type of homeopathic injectable which will aid your condition and be the most effective specifically for you.
