Traumeel and Zeel Injection
In addition to cortisone injections, Traumeel and Zeel injections, composed of natural ingredients, can reduce inflammation at the site of the big toe. The solution is an anti-inflammatory, anti-edematous, anti-exudative combination formulation of 12 botanical substances and 1 mineral substance. The injections not only reduce inflammation but also decrease symptoms of pain naturally.
Many patients experience relief from non-operative techniques, as mentioned above, however surgery is a viable option for many. Those who do not experience relief from nonoperative treatment techniques and are experiencing severe pain need to consider surgical correction. Surgery typically involves removing the large bump of the first metatarsal and rebalancing the big toe joint to create better alignment of the toe.
