Study Shows Homeopathic Remedy to be as Effective as prescription Anti-inflammatory Medication

Houston podiatrist uses Traumeel injections to treat Achilles tendonitisA recent report by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons highlighted the results of two studies involving Traumeel, a homeopathic anti-inflammatory medication that is available in ointment, gel, tablet, and injectable form. The studies compare the two topical forms with a generic form of Voltaren gel, a prescription NSAID, in the treatment of sprained ankles

Traumeel is a remedy that combines a number of homeopathic components to provide an anti-inflammatory effect. This option is preferred by those who prefer to limit their prescription medication in favor of more natural solutions. The studies show that Traumeel is a safe and effective alternative for a prescription topical NSAID. 

While I do agree with the findings, I don't agree that either treatment is the best therapy for a sprained ankle. If they had added ice application as another possible therapy, I suspect you'd find similar results.

I do, however, effectively use the injectable form of Traumeel with great success in my Houston podiatry practice

When there is inflammation of a soft tissue structure, such as a tendonitis, a common treatment is to use a cortisone injection to address and eliminate the inflammation and pain. There are some tendons that have unique properties putting them at risk of rupture if cortisone is injected. 

The Achilles tendon, one of the strongest tendons in the body, is one such example of a tendon where cortisone cannot be used. Achilles tendonitis causes intense pain in the back of the heel and ankle. Because of the limitations in treating it, the pain typically lasts longer than you would expect and impacts every step you take. 

This is where Traumeel comes in...

The injectable form of Traumeel, a non-cortisone homeopathic anitinflammatory, is safe to use around the Achilles tendon with no risk of rupture. This is effective in dramatically reducing the pain and inflammation associated with this stubborn and frustrating injury. 

If you have been dealing with persistent pain in your Achilles tendon, contact Tanglewood Foot Specialists in Houston to see if a Traumeel injection is the right solution for you.
