When you suffer from foot, heel, or ankle problems or injuries, minimizing inflammation and swelling can be the key to eliminating pain and discomfort and speeding up recovery.
That is why nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are so often prescribed as part of treatments for foot and ankle issues.
The same goes for cortisone injections and other corticosteroids commonly used to limit inflammation and to control pain. But increasingly, physicians and podiatrists are turning to a natural, effective, and safe alternative to these treatments: Traumeel®
What Exactly is Traumeel?
A homeopathic solution made of biological and mineral extracts, Traumeel has bioregulatory effects that help treat symptoms associated with acute musculoskeletal injuries, including pain and swelling.
Multiple studies have shown that Traumeel has comparable effectiveness to NSAIDs in reducing symptoms of inflammation, accelerating recovery, and improving mobility.
In addition to its proven anti-inflammatory capabilities, Traumeel’s natural formulation offers other advantages over other treatments.
There are no known side effects of Traumeel injections, which means there is no limit on the number of treatments a patient can receive.
This stands in contrast to cortisone shots, the side effects of which can delay or limit repeated treatments.
How Do We Use Traumeel Therapy?
At the Advanced Heel Pain Centers of South Florida, we use Traumeel to treat a wide range of conditions, including Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, capsulitis, metatarsalgia, and arthritic conditions.
We inject the Traumeel solution into the problem site to help regulate and support the body’s immune response, relieve pain, and further aid the healing process. There is typically a noticeable decrease in pain and swelling shortly after the injection.
We usually administer a minimum of two or three doses spaced one or two weeks apart, though how many treatments we recommend for you will depend on the specifics and severity of your condition.
