Neuraltherapie in der Gynäkologie und Geburtshilfe
Abstract: Neuraltherapy means the diagnostic utilization of local anaesthetics to treat functional, painful, reversible diseases of disturbed regulations including inflammations. The therapeutical results can be explained by complex neuro- and electrophysiological, molecular-biological, immunological, humoral and thus cybernetic reactions. Neural therapy can also be used in gynaecology and obstetrics if the following two points of view are considered:In the first instance, it can be used symptomatically in the segment as wheal, in maximum points, at and in joint structures, in vessels, muscular and tendinous insertions, at acupuncture points, sympathetic and parasympathetic ganglia, in order to regulate, for example by interrupting nociceptive afferences and the blockade sympathetic efferent reflexes. in the second instance, it can be used at the point of disturbance or the peripheral center of irritation which may be a cicatrix, often the hypogastrium, the vertebral column or something else in order to eleminate the cause of the disturbance. The many different ways anaesthetics are efficacious (such as membrane-stabilising, antihistminic, catecholamine-decreasing, cholinergic receptor-inhibiting, anti-arrhythmetic at the cardiac muscle) also justify their diversified utilization in gynaecology and obstetrics. The neural therapy is efficacious, economic, has few side effects, closes therapeutical gaps and can be combined successfully with other proven therapies, such as acupuncture and manual therapy. An exact clinical diagnosis, a sound knowledge of the anatomy, the technical skill of the therapeutist as well as the theoretical basic knowledge set up the conditions for the utilization of the neural therapy in any discipline.
