Traumeel Injections Q & A

What is a Traumeel injection?

A Traumeel injection contains a homeopathic solution made from a variety of natural plants and minerals. The ingredients, which are carefully chosen to reduce inflammation, rarely produce side effects.

What conditions are treated with a Traumeel injection?

Traumeel injections treat many inflammatory and degenerative conditions that affect your musculoskeletal system. The ingredients in the injection relieve chronic inflammation, which in turn reduces your pain.

Your doctor at South Lake Pain Institute may recommend a Traumeel injection to treat pain in your back, neck, knee, foot, wrist, and other joints. The injection may help conditions such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Fractures
  • Ligament injuries
  • Muscle and tendon injuries
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis

In cases of acute trauma, Traumeel injections are most effective when they’re administered shortly after the injury, whether it resulted from a laceration, sprain, or fracture.

Why are Traumeel injections good alternatives to steroids?

Traumeel injections are an effective alternative or supplement to steroid injections such as cortisone. Since the ingredients in Traumeel are natural and seldom cause side effects, your doctor can frequently repeat the injections until you get relief from inflammation and pain.

Steroids are safe and highly effective, but they can be injected only every six weeks and not more than three or four times yearly. More frequent steroid injections may weaken tendons, cause bone loss, and lead to cartilage deterioration.

What should I expect during a Traumeel injection?

After numbing the targeted site with a local anesthetic, your doctor at South Lake Pain Institute delivers your Traumeel injection directly to the damaged tissues.

Your procedure may be guided by ultrasound imaging so your doctor can see the affected tissues and place the injection precisely at the source of your pain.

You may experience some soreness at the injection site for a few days. Otherwise, you can return to your normal activities.

Who should not get a Traumeel injection?

Adverse reactions seldom occur following a Traumeel injection. The ingredients also don’t interact with other medications.

However, in rare cases, patients may have a reaction if they’re allergic to botanicals in the Traumeel solution, which includes:

  • Arnica montana, radix (mountain arnica)
  • Calendula officinalis (marigold)
  • Millefolium (milfoil)
  • Chamomilla (chamomile)
  • Bellis perennis (daisy)
  • Echinacea angustifolia (narrow-leafed coneflower)
  • Echinacea purpurea (purple coneflower)
