Injections are a form of treatment aimed at applying certain medicines directly to the troubled area, rather than by mouth. It is used in the treatment of many painful syndromes, especially movement system diseases and rheumatic diseases. At present, the most important of regional injectable drugs
These are the most debated cortisone medicines of the two types of drugs.
Cortisone drugs can be used alone or in combination with local anesthetics to treat a wide variety of painful conditions. For example, hand and foot pain syndromes, fibromyalgia, conditions associated with movement limitations, such as frozen shoulder, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back and disc herniations in the neck, muscle spasms, fibromyalgia and cortisone possible to benefit from the drug in some joint discomfort. Cortisone injections can also be made into the joints during acute periods of rheumatic diseases. However, there are some indispensable conditions in this treatment method.
This work should be done by a specialist and an experienced physician.
Sterile conditions should be observed.
It is absolutely known that the disease in the joint is not microbial.
If it is made 1 or 2 times and the desired result can not be obtained, it should not be repeated.
The most common knee pain should not occur early in the knee arthroplasty, ie calcification, of the causes.
It should not be done if there is a doubt in the joint or around the structures.
Such conditions are complied with, if the intra-articular or periarticular made cortisone injections are very effective method of treatment can be administered with other drugs and physical therapy.
In the last years, another injection method has been developed for arthrosis joints. As is known, arthrosis, arthritis, is a discomfort that arises as a result of the wear of the cartilage between the bones. The surface of the post-abrasion cartilage deteriorates and the amount of joint fluid that feeds the cartilage is reduced. In order to compensate for these losses, it is possible to inject medicines which are the active substance Hyaluronic acid into the joint by injection and partially repair the damage to the cartilage. These drugs, usually made from rooster buds or synthetic pathways, are administered three times a week at intervals and can be repeated every 6 months. It is a form preferred by patients as it can be applied together with other treatment methods. There is also a need to pay attention to the conditions in cortisone injections. It should definitely be done by an experienced specialist in this regard, and be sure that there is no inflammation in the joints.
Sometimes, injections can be made only to get excessively increased joint fluid without giving any medication. Joint puncture the purpose of this treatment method called, trauma or relieve rheumatic joint diseases synovial fluid emptied as a result of increasing and removing the harmful substances accumulating in the liquid medium. This procedure must be performed under sterile conditions by an experienced physician and the patient must be followed up after the injection. In case of suspicion, the joint fluid is sent to the investigation and it is checked whether it has inflammation. Under normal conditions, this procedure should not be done without an excessive increase in joint fluid, which is a vital factor for the joint. Otherwise, there is a lot of damage from benefit. Therefore, the knowledge and experience of my physician who will decide this method is very important.
In addition to drug injection methods, there is another treatment method that is done by injecting needle only without giving any medication. In this method called "dry needle treatment", the painful region is immersed and removed from the needle without giving the medicine. The aim is to reduce the sensitivity of painful nerve endings in that area and prevent pain transmission. This treatment method, which is similar to acupuncture treatment successfully applied in the Far East for thousands of years, has become widespread in Western countries in recent years. There are no side effects associated with drugs that you are not injecting. There is no harm in using it with other therapies and physical therapy methods. It is a treatment modality that is effective in the treatment of fibromyalgia, especially in the lumbar and neck hernias, painful muscle spasms, painful joint diseases.
Another similar treatment is "Mesotherapy". It is a method of treatment by injecting small amount of local anesthetic materials from small points into the body with small-tip injectors. Since the amount of medication used is very small, there are no side effects. Sterile conditions must be observed during application, close to inflamed areas and open wounds.
Another injection treatment that is applied similar to mesotherapy, but using dextrose solution instead of local anesthetics is "Prolotherapy". This treatment made around the painful region with small-tip injectors needs to be performed by experienced physicians. The most common cases are chronic rheumatic diseases, painful neck and neck pain, muscle spasms and fibromyalgia.
