Traumeel Injections

Traumeel is an alternative to cortisone (steroid) injections. It is a botanical, plant based medicine that is indicated for the treatment of plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, arthritis, and swelling associated with trauma (such as ankle sprains, fractures and post surgery).

While traditional cortisone shots have been used successfully for years, Traumeel may be a better choice in some cases. Certain diabetic patients do not tolerate cortisone well as it may increase blood sugar levels. Excessive cortisone shots can lead to tendon damage and cushion loss in the bottom of the foot. Lastly, some patients experience a “cortisone flare” after the injection, causing a temporary increase in pain and swelling.

There is no evidence of these side effects using Traumeel. In fact, studies have shown the same, and in some cases better, pain relieving effects vs. non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as Advil and Aleve.

So give Traumeel “a shot,” and make your appointment today.
