Overview

More and more patients with chronic pain and other disorders are relying on neural therapy - a treatment concept based on employing the properties of local anesthetics to regulate disorders of the autonomic system - to alleviate their symptoms. Yet there are precious few spezialized, didactic resources for medical practitioners interested in learning about this highly effective therapeutic alternative.The Manual of Neural Therapy According to Huneke offers accessible, practical information on all aspects of neural therapy as it is practiced today. Designed for use in the classroom and in the clinic, this illustrated manual comprises three sections:- Theory and Practice of neural therapy according to Huneke -- including detailed definitions of all terminology; discussions of experiments, successes, and failures of neural therapy; the scientific theory behind segmental therapy and interference fields; and practical applications.- Encyclopedia of neural therapy -- featuring an encyclopedia of conditions and indications in every anatomic region, as well as numerous case studies. - Techniques of neural therapy -- a comprehensive, substantially illustrated list of injection procedures, including detailed guidance on insertion points, direction, and depth. Distilling decades of clinical research and hands-on experience, this unique book is essential reading for practitioners of all disciplines interested in exploring how contemporary neural therapy can complement and enhance the way they practice medicine.

Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Zdravka Zafirova, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is a revised and updated English edition of a manual that describes the theory and practical application of neural therapy. The first English translation was published in 1995.
Purpose: This book reviews the theoretical foundation and the conditions and indications for neural therapy. It also describes the relevant anatomy and the specific therapeutic modalities used.
Audience: This manual is intended as an aid to all practitioners who seek a deeper understanding of neural therapy and its application in the practice of medicine. The comprehensive analysis of the principles behind this therapy and the detailed discussion of the techniques make this a valuable resource on the subject.
Features: The book begins with the exploration of the history of neural therapy, theoretical and experimental background, and detailed terminology definitions. The second part is an encyclopedia of conditions and indications for neural therapy with multiple case studies demonstrating the application of this practice. While alphabetical arrangement facilitates location of a known entity, an organ-system approach would have afforded better elucidation of the concepts. The book concludes with comprehensive descriptions and illustrations of various therapeutic techniques. The major shortcoming of the book is the absence of any references, which would allow critical analysis of evidence that may support the conclusions and the recommendations of the manual.
Assessment: This is a valuable source for practitioners seeking to acquire understanding of the theory and familiarity with the practical techniques of neural therapy.
