What is Biopuncture?
Biopuncture is a cutting-edge, minimally invasive therapy used in the treatment of acute or chronic pain. It involves the use of a very fine needle to inject small amounts of natural remedies into trigger points or areas of pain. The injections are done superficially under the skin rather than deep into the tissue so there is minimal pain involved.
How does Biopuncture work?
Biopuncture helps reduce pain and promotes and accelerates the process of repair and recovery from injuries or in cases of chronic pain. Unlike conventional pain medications or injectables that only suppress the pain signals and require constant use, Biopuncture stimulates the natural healing process and ‘wakes up’ healing mechanisms in the body. The healing effect comes from inside your body, not from the products themselves.
What conditions can be treated with Biopuncture?
- Acute or chronic pain
- Back pain
- Disc herniations

What injectables are used in Biopuncture?
There are several different homeopathic injectables that are used either alone or in combination and are customized for the proper treatment approach for your pain. The most commonly used injectable is Traumeel which has an anti-inflammatory effect in the body. Some of the most common homeopathic injectable products and their indications are listed below.
Traumeel: For the treatment of acute pain and inflammation in sports injuries such as strains and sprains and for chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, neck and back pain, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, tendonitis, knee pain, and muscle pain. It decreases inflammation, increases circulation and works as an analgesic to reduce pain while promoting the natural healing process.
Zeel: For the treatment of mild to moderate pain associated with osteoarthritis, joint stiffness, and chronic inflammatory conditions.
Spascupreel: For the relief of tight muscles and spasms anywhere in the body (including abdominal and menstrual cramps, spasmodic cough, intestinal colic) and for acute or chronic muscle tension and spasms causing acute neck and shoulder pain.
Neuralgo Rheum: For the treatment of neuralgia (nerve pain) and rheumatism of the soft tissues, intervertebral disc conditions (pain from disc herniations), exhaustion and debility. It also helps with joint disorders like chronic arthritis.
Lymphomyosot: For the treatment of swelling due to poor circulation, or a minor injury (sprained ankle).
How many treatments are required and what can I expect after a Biopuncture treatment?
After a Biopuncture treatment, it’s not unusual to feel immediate relief from a simple sports injury or tight muscles or spasms. In more chronic conditions it may take 3-4 treatments for the pain to begin to improve. The best results are achieved with treatments that are administered weekly for 3-6 treatments. The pain typically improves more and more with each treatment. Treatment is individualized according to the condition being treated and the patient’s specific needs.
