Plantar fascia block, trochanter and others

19 de May de 2023

Our goal is to offer effective and safe solutions to relieve pain and help restore mobility and function to our patients.

 

Plantar fascia block

Plantar fasciitis is a common condition that causes pain in the heel and sole of the foot due to inflammation of the plantar fascia. Plantar fascia block is a minimally invasive procedure. which consists of the injection of local anesthetics and/or anti-inflammatory drugs into the affected area, thus relieving pain and reducing inflammation.

 

Trochanter block

The trochanter is a bony prominence at the top of the femur, and the trochanter block is performed to treat pain in the trochanteric region, which can be caused by trochanteric bursitis, tendonitis, among other conditions. This procedure also involves the injection of local anesthetics and/or anti-inflammatory medications into the affected area to relieve pain and decrease inflammation.

Blocking of other areas

In addition to plantar fascia and trochanter block, our clinic offers similar treatments for other areas of the body, such as elbow, knee, hip, among others, always adapted to the specific needs of each patient. These treatments are also based on the injection of local anesthetics and/or anti-inflammatory drugs at the sites of pain and inflammation and in intra-articular compartments.

Benefits of treatments

Pain relief: The blocks in the different areas help to relieve chronic or acute pain, improving the quality of life of our patients.
Mobility recovery: By reducing inflammation and relieving pain, these treatments can improve mobility and function of the affected areas.
Rapid recovery: Because these are minimally invasive procedures, recovery time is short, allowing patients to resume their daily activities quickly.
Alternative to more invasive treatments: In some cases, these blocks can be an effective therapeutic option before considering more invasive treatments, such as surgery.

How do I know if I am a candidate for these treatments?

Plantar fascia, trochanter and other blocks may be appropriate for patients who suffer from pain in these areas and have not found relief with conventional treatments, such as physical therapy, conservative therapies or medications. Our specialists at Clínica San Román will evaluate your case and determine if these procedures are the best option.
