Praxis “Neubad” is the “Center for chronic pain”.

Chronic pain is widespread in the population. Chronic pain may persist after sports injuries, for example, or typically manifest as migraine or fibromyalgia syndrome.

“The pain can throw me to the ground, but it cannot overwhelm me.” Johann Christian Friedrich Hölderlin

Migraines usually cause severe throbbing headaches or a pulsating feeling, often on one side of the head only. Migraine pain is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can last for hours or even days, forcing the patient to stay in dark rooms. The pain attacks can be accompanied by a so-called aura. These warning symptoms can occur before or at the same time as the headache. The aura can be in the form of flashes of light, blind spots or tingling on one side of the face, arms or legs. Migraine attacks can occur as early as childhood, adolescence or early adulthood.

Fibromyalgia (fibromyalgia syndrome) is a non-inflammatory special form of soft tissue rheumatism in which muscle hardening and, as a result, symptoms such as pain in the muscles and tendon insertions occur. The pain is often accompanied by fatigue, insomnia, memory problems and mood swings. According to the current state of science, it is known that fibromyalgia is a disorder of pain perception and pain processing.

The symptoms of fibromyalgia sometimes begin after physical trauma, surgery, infection, or significant psychological stress. In other cases, the symptoms develop over time without any particular triggering event.

Women are more often affected by fibromyalgia than men. Many fibromyalgia patients also suffer from chronic tension headache, temporomandibular joint pain, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.

Fibromyalgia therapy is often difficult, and different methods are often needed to control symptoms and improve quality of life.

The following therapies are used, among others:

  • Neural therapy according to Huneke

  • Procaine-base Infusions

  • Systemic and local therapy with 5HT3 receptor antagonists

  • Vitamin C Infusions

  • PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy
