INFILTRATION THERAPY

Intra-or peri-articular infiltration, involves injecting into the joint or the immediate vicinity (shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee and ankle) therapeutic medications (e.g., corticosteroids, local anesthetics or ac. Hyaluronic acid). The advantages are its high concentration of active principles in direct contact with the lesion and inflammation, and the lower risk of systemic side effects.

It’s advocated in cases of inflammatory diseases of bone and joint disorders (arthrosis, arthritis, periarthritis, bursitis, synovitis, capsulitis, enthesopathies, fasciitis)

NEWS AND GOOD PRACTICE FOR PATIENTS

  • Although therapeutic results are often immediate, in some cases they may be delayed from a few days to weeks depending on a case-by-case basis.

  • There is a possibility that during the course of therapy, there may be a temporary worsening of condition (sometimes on the same day of treatment) or the emergence of other disorders, that were previously unknown due to the main problem—this worsening is not to be viewed negatively as it is an index of the efficacy of the treatment!

  • Please take note that a poorer response to treatment can occur for those who continue to engage in stressful behavior during treatment.

  • Arrive a few minutes before the sessions well rested and refrain from prolonged fasting or eating directly before an appointment.
  • After each session to stand for about 2 hours, it is recommended to reduce the next meal.

  • The disposable needles used help guarantee maximum safety for the patient.
