Integrative Medicine Physician & Hormone Replacement Therapy located in Honolulu, HI

When it comes to pain, conventional medicine doesn't have many answers. Yet millions of Americans live with chronic pain - back pain, joint pain, shoulder pain, nerve pain, arthritis, overuse injuries etc. Where surgery or cortisone don't resolve pain or stiffness, pain medications are prescribed. The lack of effectiveness of these methods  as well the numerous side effects are the primary reason people look for alternative methods to find relief from pain. If you're experiencing chronic lower back, frozen shoulder, neck pain, or any type of pain Dr. Tapryal can help.

Pain Management

Common alternative modalities to treat pain include treatments such as massage, acupuncture, manipulation, yoga, etc.

New to such therapies is biopuncture, a recently introduced European injection therapy. Biopuncture has recently made it's way to the United States and is used to treat common pain and inflammation.

Biopuncture has proven to be a safe, and very effective new tool to fight pain. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injection of natural substances into the area of pain and inflammation. The injections are with a very small needle and just under the skin. The substance stimulates and promotes the natural healing process. The healing comes from within your body and not from the substance.

Biopuncture does not follow acupuncture meridians. The practitioner looks for the "origin points" of the pain and treats that area. The pain point is usually a tender nerve, inflamed tissue or a muscle knot.

Conditions we treat with biopuncture:

  • neck pain
  • back pain
  • leg pain
  • degenerative discs in the back
  • sciatica
  • frozen shoulder
  • arthritis
  • sports injuries

Biopuncture is an exceptionally effective pain treatment option and is certainly not limited to the above conditions.

You will be surprised how quickly your pain improves and you are back to enjoying life!
