Abstract

Aim: In this study, we aimed to evaluate the knowledge and attitudes of physicians about Neural Therapy (NT).

Methods: This single-center, descriptive study included 265 physicians. A questionnaire consisting of questions on the knowledge and attitudes of physicians about NT as well as demographic data was applied face-to-face. SPSS 15.0 program was used. Values ​​with p<0.05 were considered statistically significant.

Results: From the results of the study, 196 physicians (74.00%) knew about NT. The mean age of doctors who knew about NT was 36.07±10.72 (minimum: 24, maximum: 62). When asked about the clinical conditions for which they think NT application is effective, they gave the answers: low back pain, neck-shoulder pain, fibromyalgia and headache.

Conclusions: Three-quarters of the physicians stated that they knew about NT. The fact that the majority of those who didn’t know about NT wanted to receive education on NT shows that physicians are open to learning about this subject.
