Directions of a medical specialist
Mesotherapy concern tendon injuries (tendonitis, tenosynovitis or peritendinitis), muscle injuries (cramps, stiffness, elongation, muscles spams, rupture, contusions, strain and muscle tears), ligament (sprain, aponeurosis), cartilaginous (meniscal tear, chondropathy, hygroma, bursitis and capsulitis) and bone (shin splints, stress fracture, pubalgia and acromioclavicular arthropathy). •Patellar tendinopathy•Quadriceps tendonitis•Patellar condropathy•Achilles tendinopathy•peroneal tendinitis •Posterior tibial tendinitis •Arthrosis of the knee •Meniscitis •Pubalgia •Muscle tear, muscle spasms, elongation, strain
They are relatively few in number; the most important is the mixture composition and the substance concentration.
Lidocaine and Procaine : They represent the basis of the Mesotherapy, because they serve like a vector for other kinds of components in the mixture and so diffuse deeper. Lidocaine (Mesocaine) will be used in the acute phase of 0.5% or 1%.
NSAID sMajor components of Mesotherapy mixtures, there are so many, and is not possible to highlight a predominance (Zofora * Feldene * PROFENID * Voltaren * Tilcotil * Mobic *)
Calcitonin Often used in trauma, two opposing classes:
• The Human calcitonin synthesis is easier to use but less supported even in Mesotherapy.
• Animal calcitonin is better supported. Muscle relaxants The most used is the thiocolchicoside applied for its effectiveness as its tolerance (Coltramyl * Miorel *)
The Diazepan (Valium *) can also be used, but is significantly lower tolerance. Draining This is the Dycinone® * which will be enable to drain oedema in the tissues.
Vasodilator They will help to boost circulation in fibrotic tissues, carry NSAIDs and calcitonin going deeper, that is why their great importance.
Two kinds of injectable homeopathic preparations are used:
• arnica 4 DH, which instructions are represented by secondary hematoma after a breakdown, a sprain, or primary straight shock.
• Equisetum Arvens diluted 4 (Horsetail) is used in osteochondrosis.
