Ointment for joints

What anesthetic joint ointment is most effective

The most common symptom of almost all inflammatory and destructive processes in the joints is pain of varying intensity. This pain often makes the patient's life unbearable.

There are various ointments, creams, gels and other drugs that help relieve pain in the lower back, knees, etc. To understand which ointment painkillers for joints is right for you, you need to identify the cause of the ailment.

Why there is pain in the joints and how to eliminate it

The cause of joint pain is most often inflammation. The inflammatory process can have different localization and affect both the joint itself and the underlying tissue. Before you start looking for an effective analgesic, you should consult a doctor and determine the true cause of the pain. Most joint diseases can not be completely cured, so the main goal of therapy is to achieve a stable remission and eliminate pain syndrome.

Selection of drugs effective for pain of different localization and etiology, carried out exclusively individually. Ointments and gels for joints that are suitable for one patient do not always help the other. The doctor can recommend you this or that drug, but you will most likely have to choose the most suitable one by experience. Knowing certain properties of some components, you can independently pick up those ointments for joints that will help you.

Quite often patients complain of pain in the lower back, knee, elbow and hip joints. The most common diseases that cause pain are arthritis, arthrosis and osteochondrosis.

Effective means for various joint diseases

If arthritis is the cause of back pain or other joint problems, it is advisable to use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Such funds not only effectively relieve pain syndrome, but also combat the cause of the disease - inflammation. In this case, you should choose different painkillers and gels based on diclofenac or ibuprofen. These drugs have pronounced analgesic properties, relieve local hyperthermia and edema.

A good therapeutic effect is provided by drugs based on bee or snake venom in combination with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Bee venom contains active ingredients that have a wide range of action. Ointments based on poisons have a warming effect, improve local blood circulation, supply tissues with oxygen and help remove toxins from the affected joint.

bee venom warmer The most popular pain relievers for this group are apizarthron( bee venom-based ointment) and viprosal( a viper-based poison preparation).Use this ointment can be 2-3 times a day until the symptoms disappear completely. If during the day you did not notice any positive dynamics, use of the drug should be stopped. Do not forget that the poison of bees and snakes is a powerful allergen and can cause the patient to have an allergic reaction.

There is a large number of drugs for the treatment of joints based on medicinal plants. Among such plants, distinguish a jaunty, ginger pharmacy, kalgan Chinese, sabelnik, etc. Widespread use in the treatment of joint diseases received "Ointment of another Tyssa with a lifeblood."Has a good therapeutic effect for pain in the lower back and other joints.

How to prepare a curative ointment at home

The only drawback of all of the above drugs is their cost. The price is high, because all these funds are made from scarce and expensive raw materials. There is an alternative to expensive medications - ointment, which is prepared by oneself at home.

Review of modern ointments for pain in joints: truth and fiction

Ointments for pain in joints came to us from ancient times. In archaeological excavations in human skeletons, attributed to the V century BC, signs of joint disease were found. The first written evidence of problems with the musculoskeletal system is dated to the 2nd century BC.It is obvious that in the modern understanding the pharmaceutical industry did not exist.

People with articular ailment in ancient times coped only with external means. Healers, healers, shamans tried to treat pain in joints with the help of bloodletting, moxibustion with burning iron, and also used various means of natural origin, both vegetable and mineral: infusions, decoctions, lotions, compresses, rubbers and ointments. Widely used beekeeping products: bee venom and propolis, snake venom, as well as tinctures, decoctions and ointments from the bark of willow or willow, in which there are salicylates - substances with pronounced anti-inflammatory effect, progenitors of aspirin and other drugs of the NSAID group( nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).

A modern range of ointments for joint pain

Of all the means and methods modern pharmacists have adopted a greater degree of ointment. Probably, in view of their high profitability, today their production is put on a broad base. A person without a medical or pharmaceutical education is quite difficult to navigate in this diversity, to assess the benefits or harms of certain drugs, especially in the future. Moreover, manufacturers often do not stint on advertising.

Currently in the current pharmaceutical classification( proposed by WHO and accepted in Russia) there are 4 subgroups of agents for external use in diseases of the musculoskeletal system:

  • Means based on NSAID preparations: ibuprofen, diclofenac, ketoprofen, ibuprofen, etc. Examples of such ointments: Naise, Ketonal, Indometoksinovaya, Finalagel and others.
  • Preparations of pepper on the basis of capsaicin( a substance contained in pepper and responsible for the "burning" effect) and its derivatives: Capsin, Nikofleks, balm "Golden Star"( Zvezdochka), Espol, Kapsikam, Finalgon, etc.
  • Preparations based on salicylic acid and its derivatives: Bom-Benge, Ben-Gay, Viprosal, Efkamon, Nizvysal, etc.
  • Other drugs to which a well-known drug like Dimexide is referred, as well as a number of combined and homeopathic remedies.

Also in this classification, external agents for joint pain can be found in the group "Other drugs for the treatment of the musculoskeletal system."It includes fashionable in our time chondroprotectors - drugs that protect and repair cartilage, including ointments based on them. The main active substances in them are mainly two components: chondroitin sulfate and glucosaminoglycans, including.hyaluronic acid.

NSAIDs and chondroprotectors: more expensive does not mean better

The most expensive and actively advertised today are ointments based on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and chondroprotectors. At the same time it is these drugs that cause the most controversy and doubt about their effectiveness. The fact is that their active substances( especially the hornroprotektorov) have fairly large molecules, which in fact can not penetrate through the skin cells into the deeper layers of tissues. For example, with external application of the drug "Diclofenac" directly to the knee joint penetrates no more than 5-7% of the active substance.

To date, in fact, there are no large-scale studies of local therapy with these drugs, which could reliably confirm their effectiveness. And those studies that are conducted - do not meet the modern principles of evidence-based medicine, and therefore can not be accepted.

Emulgel Voltaren

Novartis( manufacturer of Voltaren emulsifier) ​​has published the results of one of the latest studies in this field in support of the effectiveness of the drug. According to the presented data, the effectiveness of the Voltaren emulsifier was comparable to that of the Ibuprofen tablets with less side effects. In the testing there were 2 control groups: taking the drug Ibuprofen inwards and using locally the drug Diclofenac. However, in this study there was no control group that would use vaseline, lanolin or another inert ointment base for local therapy as an ointment.

It is possible that in this group the effect would be equivalent to the effect among patients using external agents with NSAIDs. The fact is that at certain stages of the disease, the process of rubbing itself has a positive effect on joints, during which local blood circulation improves and reflex muscle spasm is eliminated - and this can indeed give a noticeable effect in a number of cases( including when there are no signs of acute inflammation).

In addition, manufacturers sometimes go for a trick. For example, in the popular ointment "Hondroksid" included dimethylsulfoxide( dimexide), which in itself has a pronounced anti-inflammatory and local anesthetic effect, but costs several times cheaper.

Please note!

Means for external application on the basis of NSAIDs can be very effective in the development of synovitis( inflammation of the lining of the joint), becauseit is located closer to the surface of the skin than the bones or cartilages. Therefore, the active substance can penetrate into it more likely.

To penetrate active substances deep into the tissue helps ultrasound. Therefore, agents for external use with glucocorticoid hormones( which are close to NSAIDs by the mechanism of anti-inflammatory action) and ointments with NSAIDs are actively used in ultrasound physiotherapy. The process of introducing drugs into the body with the help of ultrasonic waves is called phonophoresis. Unlike simple "smearing", this procedure gives a pronounced effect with minimal adverse reactions( in the absence of contraindications).

Chondroxide Ointment

Pepper and salicylic acid: cheap and angry

Topical products with pepper preparations, its derivatives and salicylic acid derivatives are simple and affordable, which at some stages of the disease give excellent effect, eliminating pain and inflammation in the joint region. They have local anesthetic and irritating effects. Most ointments have a combined composition and contain anti-inflammatory, analgesic and topical irritants simultaneously. In addition to pepper derivatives, bee and snake venoms, camphor, turpentine, essential oils of eucalyptus, peppermint, clove-tree and their synthetic analogues are widely used as ingredients.

Why are these drugs so effective?

They warm, dilate the blood vessels, cause the outflow of blood from the inflammation focus, reduce swelling, restore blood circulation - thereby contributing to the abating of the inflammatory process and helping to relieve muscle spasm around the affected joint.

In addition to the above mechanisms, the so-called "Ukhtomsky dominant principle" plays an important role. During the illness, a focus of pain arises in the cerebral cortex, which closes all the "attention" of the higher nervous activity, and thus aggravates the symptoms, closing the vicious circle and hindering recovery. For effective therapy, it is important to switch attention, so warming and locally irritating procedures are also called distractions. Sometimes they are enough to take the path of recovery.

Effective folk recipes

Some patients prefer not to spend money on branded packaging and name, but to prepare warming ointments by their grandmother's recipes. They often contain mustard, red pepper, turpentine, propolis, needles, eucalyptus or clove oil.

Here is one of the simplest and most effective recipes: mix the ground red pepper with the inside( pig) fat or smaltz( smalets are fat from the fat, it can be replaced with lanolin or petroleum jelly) in the ratio 1: 2( to 1 spoonful of red pepper add2 tablespoons of fat).With pains, rub a small amount of the drug into the joint area.

There are several variants of the popular recipe for ointments with camphor, mustard and egg whites:

  • Take 50 g of mustard powder and 50 ml of camphor oil, dilute in 100 g of ethyl alcohol, add three egg whites to the solution.
  • Alternatively, 50 ml of camphor alcohol must be added to 50 g of mustard, and then mixed with three egg whites( ethyl alcohol is not required).

These agents should be used with caution, as they can cause local and general allergic reactions, and other complications.

Important information about the treatment with ointments

No medications, including for external use, can be used without examination and consultation of a doctor, as it is possible to miss a serious illness or a dangerous complication. Before using even medications that are harmless in your opinion, consult with your doctor.

Local treatment with ointments has contraindications. Among them may be:

  • suspected purulent or specific infectious processes;
  • marked inflammatory changes in the joint region;
  • accumulation of a large amount of fluid in the joint cavity;
  • allergy;
  • the general severe condition of the patient;
  • heart attacks, strokes and other severe diseases.

If after applying the ointment there is a burning sensation - it can not be tolerated, as local allergic reactions may occur. However, do not try to wash off the ointment with water: the substances contained in it, as a rule, do not dissolve in water, but dissolve well in fats, so irritated locally should be wiped with a cotton swab with vegetable oil.

People with sensitive skin and nervous system( emotional) better mix "burning" ointments before use with vegetable oil, petroleum jelly or lanolin before use.

Do not take ointment as a panacea for all ailments or a magic wand. Treatment should be comprehensive and aimed at eliminating the causes and mechanisms of the disease.

It is important to pay attention not only to the name of the product, but also to its composition. Often ointments with the same composition are produced by different manufacturers under different names and sometimes have an unjustified difference in price.


Ointment for pain in joints: choose the right

Ointment for joint pain is considered to be the most popular and very effective remedy for local, that is, external impact on the pain syndrome.

Today, the assortment of such drugs is extremely extensive, so their choice should be approached with an understanding of the causes of existing pathologies: what ointment from pain in the knee joint to use when injuring it, and what ointment from pain in the shoulder joint to use, say, inflammatory changes in its synovial membranes(chronic osteoarthritis), bursitis or traumatic arthritis.

It is rather difficult to evaluate the merits of all the medicines of this pharmacological group within the framework of one review, so we will concentrate on what names of ointments for pain in the joints are most often voiced by doctors recommending these drugs to their patients and why.

Indications for the use of ointments for joint pain

The main indications for the use of ointments for pain in joints include a wide range of musculoskeletal and musculoskeletal diseases of various etiologies: traumatic, inflammatory or associated with metabolic disorders affecting the joints.

Depending on the principle of therapeutic effect, anti-inflammatory ointments and local irritants are distinguished. Anti-inflammatory ointment for pain in the joints is used for such diseases as rheumatoid arthritis, deforming arthrosis, spondylitis, osteochondrosis, osteoarthritis and osteoarthritis;with radiculitis and inflammation surrounding the joints of soft tissues( bursitis, tendovaginitis).Anti-pain agents of local action are also recommended for joint and muscle injuries, peripheral nerve lesions( neuralgia) and myalgia( muscle pain).

Ointments for joint pain are included in the complex systemic therapy of arthralgic syndrome, which accompanies certain infectious, endocrine, neurological and autoimmune diseases.

In many cases it is most advisable to use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs( NSAIDs), which not only relieve pain in the joints, but also affect the inflammatory process that causes them. The form of release of these drugs - ointments, gels or creams in tubes. These include Diclofenac( Diklak-gel, Voltaren, etc.), Ibuprofen( Dip Rilif et al.), Ketonal( Fastum gel, etc.), Piroxicam( Finalgel), etc.

To get rid of the pain that has arisen from the bruise,dislocation or stretching, ointments of locally irritating action may be used: Bengin( Bom-Benge), Vipralgon( Viprosal, Alvipsal, etc.), Gavkamen( Efkamon), Kapsikam( Espol, Finalgon).

Farmakodinamika ointments for pain in joints

The main mechanism of anti-inflammatory and analgesic action of Diclofenac( other trade names - Diklak-gel, Diclofenacol, Diclouran, Voltaren emulgel, Orthofen, Orthoflex) triggers the active substance diclofenac( sodium salt of phenylacetic acid).It slows down the process of biosynthesis of local mediators of prostaglandins, which, at the site of damage to cell membranes during inflammation, provide the body's response - somatic pain.

The active substance of ointment for pain in joints Ibuprofen( other trade names - Dip Reilif, Dolgit, Ibalgin, Ibutop) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug ibuprofen. In the ointment Piroksikam( synonyms Piroksikam-Verte, Finalagel) the main component - piroxicam. And the Ketonal drug( synonyms: Valusal, Fastum gel, Ketonal Forte, Bystrumgel, Ultrafastin) is an active substance derived from propionic acid ketoprofen, also belonging to the group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The pharmacodynamics of all these ointments is similar to Diclofenac: they are inhibitors of prostaglandins.

Ointments for pain in the joints that are locally irritating, pharmacological action provide:

  • Bengin( Bom-Benge) - menthol and methyl salicylate;
  • Vipralgon( generics: Viprosal, Viprapin, Viprobel, Nizvysal, Alvipsal, etc.) - poison of gyurzy, camphor, acid salicylic and turpentine;
  • Gavkamen( Flukoldex, Efkamon) - clove oil, camphor, menthol, eucalyptus oil;
  • Apizarthron( analogues - Apifor, Ungapiven, Forapin) - bee venom, methyl salicylate;
  • Capsicam( analogues - Finalgon, Betalgon, Espol) - extract of bitter capsicum capsaicin.

The active substances of these drugs act reflexively, exciting the nerve endings of the skin receptors. As a result, the vessels expand, blood circulation at the site of inflammation or trauma increases( as evidenced by reddening of the skin), oxygen flow into the tissue increases. Due to this, the production of biogenic amines multiplies, which reduce pain sensitivity. A analgesic effect of capsaicin is explained by its powerful inhibitory effect on the neuropeptide, which transmits signals from the peripheral nerve endings to the brain.

Pharmacokinetics of ointments for joint pain

Given the external way of using all gels, creams and ointments for pain in joints, the level of absorption of their active ingredients is insignificant. Thus, for ointments based on NSAIDs( diclofenac, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, etc.), it does not exceed 6%, and the association with proteins is almost 100%.When these preparations are applied to the area of ​​the affected joint, the main amount of active substances is concentrated in the synovial fluid that fills the joint cavity. And what is trapped in the plasma is excreted through the kidneys. Information on the metabolism of most irritating ointments, according to their official instructions, is missing. At best, it can be indicated that the drug does not have a systemic effect.

Contraindications to the use of ointments for joint pain

Among the contraindications to the use of Diclofenac and its analogs is the presence in the anamnesis of patients with bronchospasm, allergic rhinitis or skin reactions after using any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug or aspirin. With gastric ulcer, liver and kidney dysfunction, chronic heart failure and bronchial asthma, Diclofenac and all other ointments with NSAIDs are administered with caution. Children under 6 years( and Finalgel - children under 14 years), these ointments do not apply.

Absolute contraindications to the use of irritating ointments are increased sensitivity to their components and the presence of open wounds, dermatoses or even minor skin lesions at the site of application of the drug.

The use of ointments for pain in joints during pregnancy is not recommended in most cases, as there is no convincing clinical experience of their application in this situation. Ointment Diclofenac and its analogs during the third trimester of pregnancy and during lactation are not applied, and in the first two trimesters should be used with caution. Fastum gel can be used during pregnancy solely on the prescription of the treating doctor. And ointments, which contain ketoprofen, as well as bee or snake venom, are forbidden for pregnant and lactating women.

Side effects of ointments for pain in joints

The use of ointments for joint pain on the basis of all the above non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can be accompanied by undesirable side effects in the form of itchy skin or burning, redness or rashes. It is possible that systemic side effects may occur: nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, edema, increased blood pressure and abnormalities of the gastrointestinal tract.

The use of Efkamon, Gavkamen or Flukoldeks, and also ointments based on snake or bee venom quite often causes allergic skin reactions at the place of their application.

Way of administration and dose of

All ointments for joint pain have one way of applying - cutaneous. Ointments and gels based on diclofenac are rubbed into the skin over a painful place three times a day - 2-4 g of the preparation at a time. Single dose, prescribed to children 6-12 years, is 1.5-2 g( applied twice a day).

Gel Piroxicam( Finalgel) should be applied to the affected area, squeezing out a column of the drug no longer than 1 cm and rinsing it in a thin layer - three times during the day. Ointment Finalgon should be applied to the skin, rubbing the ointment with the applied applicator, 5 mm at a time - not more than three times a day. To increase the therapeutic effect, the place of application of the drug is recommended to be wrapped.

Ointments with camphor and turpentine rub 5-10 g once every 24 hours( with intense pain - twice a day).The duration of therapy is no more than 10 days. The same way of using and dosing for ointments based on poisons.

Since the external absorption of ointments, creams and gels systemic absorption of their active components is minimal, an overdose of these medicines is considered impossible. Although Finalhelgel producers warn: when the dosage of the drug was significantly exceeded, in rare cases, headache, nausea, gastrointestinal disorders, and in isolated cases - functional renal failure were recorded.

Interactions of ointments from joint pain with other drugs

Diclofenac and other NSAIDs can enhance the effect of drugs that cause increased sensitivity to ultraviolet radiation( sulfonamides, antibiotics, antifungal agents).Interactions with other drugs in clinical practice were not observed.

Ointment Ibuprofen( and its generics) reduces the effectiveness of diuretics( furosemide and hypothiazide) and some drugs to reduce blood pressure. And with the simultaneous administration of oral glucocorticoids, there is a danger of gastrointestinal bleeding.

Conditions for storing ointments for pain in joints

Optimum storage conditions for virtually all ointments for joint pain presented in this review is a temperature not higher than + 25 ° С.Preparations based on diclofenac should be stored at a temperature not higher than + 15 ° C.The shelf-life of medicinal products is indicated on their packaging.


Knee aches: treatment with ointments and creams


With the help of medicinal ointments and creams it is possible to alleviate the patient's condition, reduce pain and improve the mobility of the joints.

For the treatment of knees, ointments and creams with a curative effect are used. They are divided into three large groups.

Ointments for warming

The group of warming ointments for the knees includes Menovazine, Capsicum, Gevecamen, Espol, Nikoflex-cream, etc. Here you can add popular gels and ointments for the joints of horses.

These drugs improve blood circulation in the knee. They bring to the sick zone pleasant warmth and comfort, relief in the presence of arthrosis in the joint, meniscus damage, inflammation of the knee tendons. Especially they relieve vascular pain in the knees, because heat always helps with vascular diseases.

Ointments warming are endowed with a small curative effect, but from them there are almost no side effects.

Important: It is contraindicated to use them for arthritis and arthrosis of the knee joint with noticeable swelling of the knee as a result of accumulation of pathological fluid in the joint cavity( with synovitis).

Ointments with bee and venom of snakes

The group on the basis of the poison of bees includes ointments: Apizatron, Ungapiven, Virapin, Apireven. The group on the basis of snake venom includes Viprosal ointment.

These drugs are a distraction with a high warming effect. When absorbed through the skin, they act on muscles and ligaments, improving their elasticity, accelerating the circulation of blood around the diseased joint. They are more effective than warm ointments. But there are side effects: allergies and inflammation of the skin in places of application.

Important to know:

  • ointments with bee and snake venom can not be applied to the skin with lesions. In addition, on the hands( fingers, palms) also there should be no scratches, wounds, abrasions or cracks;
  • after application of a hand it is necessary to wash up water with soap, as it is possible to put inadvertently a poison in eyes or mucous a nose or an oral cavity;
  • is contraindicated in using ointments with bee and snake venom for women on critical days and for children.

Ointments and gels with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

This group includes ointments: Indomethacin, Butadionic, Ibuprofen. Cream Dolgit, gels: Naiz-gel, Voltaren-emulgel, Bystrumgel, Fastum, etc.

Advertisements somewhat exaggerate the curative effect of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory ointments and gels, especially hard joints. In addition, advertising argue that rubbing these ointments, patients practically take a pill of this action. But this is not so. Only 7-10% of the active substance passes through the skin, which is not enough to create a complete anti-inflammatory effect.

But they bring noticeable relief for pain, especially due to arthritis of the knee and inflammation of the knee tendon, damage to the meniscus and gonarthrosis against synovitis - a noticeable inflammation and swelling of the knees. Vascular pain ointments from inflammation are not removed.

Dimexide - chemical liquid for knees

Dimexide has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. Dimexid penetrates through the skin barriers inside the diseased joint, it can reduce inflammation, reduce swelling and relieve pain.

Dimexide is produced in the form of a solution, gel( in the photo), candles( used in gynecological practice and proctology), ointments.

Dimexide is beneficial in the presence of:

  • arthritis of the knee joint;
  • inflammation of the tendon of the knee( periarthritis of the "goose-paw" bag);
  • meniscus damage;
  • arthrosis of the knee joint( gonarthrosis) accompanied by synovitis( swelling of the joint).

The vascular pain in the knees does not practically stop the preparation.

Important to know:

  • Dimexide can not be used for patients with neglected diseases: kidney, liver and cataract, with severe angina and glaucoma.
  • Dimexide causes an allergy, so a sensitivity test is first done by applying a small amount of cotton to the skin. With reddening of the skin, medicine can not be used. If there is no reaction, you can apply it in accordance with certain rules.

How to use Dimexide( solution)

If there is no allergy to Dimexide, then you need to start the procedure:

  • Mix in a cup Dimexid with boiled water( 1 tbsp.) Next, a sterile gauze moistened with a solution is applied to the diseased knee,on top - a film, and then cotton wool or cotton cloth. Hold the compress for up to an hour, but no more. At the course - 15-20 applications put them once a day, will take 2-3 weeks treatment.

Error : does not need to mix Dimexide with water in advance, in order to save time, and pour the entire vial into the jar, topping up the water. The drug starts to work idle and will lose therapeutic activity, since it immediately enters into chemical interaction with water.

Error: does not need to replace gauze with other material - it can cause allergy, especially if the cloth is colored. Dimexid, when penetrating the skin, takes with itself biologically active substances deep into the body.

Error: You do not need to leave a compress all night - you can get a classic chemical burn.

Bishofite - brine, oil derivative

Bischofite has a moderate analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect, it acts warming.

If arthrosis of the knee joint proceeds without synovitis( without accumulation of excess fluid), bischofite has a beneficial effect, which extends to vascular pain in the knees. It is not very effective in treating meniscuses and inflammation of the knee tendons.

Important: Bischofite is contraindicated in arthritis.

How to apply a compress from the bishofit

The joint is warmed by a warmer at first 3-5 minutes, then gauze moistened with bischofite is applied, wax paper and cotton flannel are placed on top.

Keep the compress all night, then rinse with warm water. Hypersensitive people should keep the compress 1-2 hours.

The course of 20 procedures is performed every other day. Benefits bischofita: it is harmless and has no side effects. If hypersensitive people have skin irritation, then they switch to intermittent treatment, performing compresses after 3-4 days.

In pharmacies sell natural bile of cows or pigs, bile bile.

What is the use of bile

Bile dissolves and warms, it is used for the same diseases as bischofite. But its effectiveness is even higher than that of compresses with bischofite.

Repels patients of a sharp odor of bile.

Important: It is contraindicated to use it for pustules on the skin, inflammatory diseases of lymph nodes and ducts, fevers with increased body temperature.

Compresses with bile

If there is no allergy to bile, then gauze is folded into 6 layers, impregnated with bile, applied to the knee and covered with waxed paper and bandaged. You need to hold for 2 hours, perform daily 3 weeks.

Injection of corticosteroid hormones

In order to suppress pain and inflammation with synovitis( edema and swelling of the joint), corticosteroid hormones are injected into the knee joint: Kenalog, Diprospan, Hydrocortisone, Methylpred, Depo-Medrol. Often they are provided with emergency assistance.

Injections of these drugs are useful in the treatment of diseases:

  • arthritis of the knee joint;
  • inflammation of the knee tendon( periarthritis of the goose paw bag).The hormone is injected into the tendon region, not the joint;
  • of a "fresh"( recent) meniscus injury accompanied by a strong knee swelling;
  • Arthrosis( gonarthrosis) of the knee joint, accompanied by synovitis( severe swelling of the joint).
  • Warning! If synovitis is absent, then injections of hormones of corticosteroids for arthrosis are harmful! They do not treat arthrosis themselves, but relieve the reciprocal inflammatory response of the body.
  • Warning! Injection into the joint of hormonal drugs with vascular pains is useless and harmful!

Chondroprotectors are often administered by physicians to the knee joints: Alflutop, Hondrolone, homeopathic. Objective T.

Injection is administered internally with arthrosis without severe swelling of the joints, with chronic meniscus damage.

Chondroprotectors for arthritis, knee tendon inflammation and knee pain are useless or harmful.

Injections of hyaluronic acid preparations

Preparations from hyaluronic acid, for example, sodium hyaluronate, are stronger and faster acting than chondroprotectors when they are injected into the joint. They are called "liquid prostheses" or "liquid implants", since they act on the joint.

Drugs are useful and effective in the treatment of arthrosis of the knee joints. Sodium Hyaluronate forms a protective film on the damaged cartilage. It protects the cartilage tissue from further destruction and improves the sliding of the cartilaginous surfaces that touch each other.

Drugs penetrate the cartilage, improve its elasticity and elasticity. At the same time, the dried cartilage restores damping properties. Mechanical overload is weakened, reducing pain in the knee joint and increasing its mobility. Acid treatment courses are conducted - 3-4 injections per each knee with an interval of 7-14 days between injections. The course can be repeated in 6-12 months.

Now hyaluronic acid is imported preparations: Synvisc, Fermatron, Ostenil, Go-on, Duralan and domestic drug Hyastat.

But everything will go to the doctor, you can not cure ointments, the physician will prescribe physiotherapy, it also helps. When vohmoznosi apply to the knees cabbage leaf.


There is a very good remedy for joint diseases. Very simple and cheap. The most expensive component is a good drink. The best is a medical alcohol or a quality moonshine with a strength of more than 60%.It is important that the alcohol is pure, therefore, vodka is not very suitable - it contains glycerin. Now it will be spring - collect a jar( preferably three liters) of yellow dandelion heads. The bank should be packed very tightly( be surprised how many of them there fit).All this yellow ugliness pour alcohol and clean in a warm dark place. In three months, a remedy for rubbing the joints will be ready. Acts amazingly. And it also acts on the aching muscles. Quickly relieves pain and heals.

The main active ingredient of the new dietary supplement "Live Cage VI" is the organic complex of ChondroFort ™, which provides a complete restoration of the cartilaginous tissue of the joints. The main secret of this complex is the combination in optimal doses of the three most important natural components - glucosamine, selenium and vitamin C - which lose half their effectiveness without each other. As a result, a multiple increase in the activity of restorative processes in articular cartilages is achieved.
In general, from the point of view of modern medicine, these biologically active components can not be considered separately - they can only work together. Without any of them, the cascade of restorative reactions in the cartilage is interrupted. Judge for yourself, glucosamine is the main building material of cartilage of joints and spine, but these are only individual "bricks" that still need to be cemented together by "cement."The role of this cement is performed by sulfur atoms, which "stitch" glucosamine molecules into strong blocks. But for the transfer of sulfur atoms, a special enzyme is needed, which does not work without selenium. If selenium is sufficient, strong structural blocks form of glucosamine, which form the basis of cartilage. However, now they must be reliably pierced with "fittings", which will reliably strengthen the joint tissue. The role of this armature is performed by a special fibrous protein - collagen. And for its synthesis, vitamin C is needed. So it turns out that all these three components must necessarily be together and in the necessary doses, as we see in the organic complex of ChondroFort ™.
Other components of the morning complex of dietary supplements "Live Cage VI" - vitamins A and E, beta-carotene, zinc and copper - are a powerful antioxidant complex. They reliably protect that new cartilaginous tissue that is built thanks to the natural complex of HondroFort ™.This is necessary, since the young cartilaginous tissue is very easily destroyed.
Evening complex of dietary supplements "Live Cage VI" in addition to the additional amount of glucosamine contains a plant anti-inflammatory complex. Extract of the bark of white willow and grape seed effectively removes inflammation, pain and swelling of the cartilaginous tissue of the joints and spine. This is extremely important not only for a person with damaged joints to move around and just sleep peacefully( therefore, by the way, anti-inflammatory components are included in the evening formula).The fact is that the inflammatory process in the joints leads to the rapid destruction of healthy cartilage, and the earlier it stops, the sooner the joints work will be restored.
Composition of the morning complex: the natural complex KhondroFort ™( glucosamine sulfate, selenium, vitamin C), vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin E, zinc, copper.
Composition of the evening complex: glucosamine sulfate, white willow bark extract( 25% salicin), grape seed extract( 90% polyphenols).
