The injection method applied in Biopuncture requires a hand syringe posture that is stable, allowing for accurate reproducible injections. When using a small needle and a small syringe, this is principally achieved by stabilizing the proximal part of the needle with the 5th finger. The 5th finger also may be used to make contact with the patient’s skin for stability and distractive proprioception.
In Biopuncture, ‘pincer-palpation’ is used to raise the area of skin (and the underlying muscle if necessary), thereby reducing the risk of injury to the deeper structures. The ‘pincer-palpation’ further facilitates a distraction process rendering the injection less painful.
