Indomethacin ointment - non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with a local anesthetic effect, prescribed to alleviate the condition and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatism of the musculoskeletal system, relieve pain from bruises, sprains and dislocations.
Related to the number of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), the drug has inhibitory effect on the synthesis of proglandins that cause pain, inflammation and fever.
For inflammatory and degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system
Indomethacin ointment (indications for use are described below in the article) is prescribed for inflammatory and degenerative diseases musculoskeletal system as part of complex therapeutic therapy as an anesthetic and providing anti-inflammatory effect.
Articular syndrome in rheumatism and exacerbation of gout
Joint syndrome is a universal manifestation of joint damage. The articular syndrome appearing in rheumatism and exacerbation of gout is accompanied by the appearance of chronic intense pain syndrome.
The use of indomethacin ointment is indicated as part of complex therapy to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and swelling. The use of the drug also allows you to fight morning stiffness and prevent further deterioration of the patient's condition.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a systemic inflammatory disease of the connective tissue with damage to small joints and inflammation of internal organs.
The use of indomethacin ointment is indicated at all stages of the development of the disease as an anti-inflammatory and relieves painful the patient's condition is a means allowing to slow down the development of pathology, but should be used in addition to the main, most often surgical treatment.
Psoriatic arthritis is an inflammatory lesion of the joints associated with the cutaneous form of psoriasis. Gradually or acutely developing pathology is accompanied by sharp joint pains of intense character, provoking morning stiffness of the joints and aggravated at night or in a state rest.
There is no specific treatment for the disease, and the use of indomethacin ointment is focused on reducing inflammation, pain and preventing loss of joint function.
Bechterew's disease (ankylosing spondylitis) is a chronic, systemic disease of the joints with the predominant localization of the inflammatory process in the sacroiliac joints, joints of the spine and paravertebral soft tissues.
At the beginning of its development, the pathology is characterized by the appearance of pain of mild or moderate intensity. As the disease progresses, the pain syndrome increases, expanding its area to the entire spine and hip joints, and gradually becoming the cause of a decrease in the range of motion.
The use of indomethacin ointment is indicated at an early stage of the development of the disease as part of a specific complex therapy and allows you to reduce the severity of pain and restore joint mobility, preventing morning stiffness.
Osteoatrosis is a progressive degenerative change in bone joints, leading to their gradual destruction and accompanied by the appearance of pronounced pain sensations of varying degrees of intensity:
|Mechanical type of pain||The intensity of pain sensations, characterized by aching, dull or cutting in nature, and subsides at rest.|
|"Blockade" pain||It has a periodic, intense, cutting character, arises at the moment of movement and "wedges" the joint when a part of the destroyed cartilage is pinched.|
|"Starting" pain||It is characterized by a short-term character, accompanies the first minutes of physical activity and is complemented by tissue edema and reactive synovitis.|
Reducing inflammation and relieving pain at all stages of the development of diseases is carried out for due to the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which include indomethacin ointment.
Radiculitis (radiculopathy) - pain symptoms caused by compression of the nerve endings of the spinal cord. Radiculitis is manifested by a high-intensity pain syndrome that occurs when the head is unsuccessfully turned, lifting weights or hypothermia. The painful sensations accompanying the pathology are of high intensity, literally paralyzing a person.
|Cervical||Pain syndrome is localized in the back of the head and the back of the neck. Increased discomfort occurs when moving.|
|Pectoral||It is quite rare, and when the nerve endings are squeezed, it manifests itself as shingles intercostal pain symptom of increased intensity, with a gradual spread of cutting sensations on hand.|
|Lumbosacral||Causes intense pain in the area:
The use of indomethacin ointment is indicated to relieve the intensity of the pain syndrome and provide an anti-inflammatory effect.
Inflammatory damage to ligaments and tendons
Theodinite is an acute or chronic inflammatory process that occurs in the area of ligaments and tendons, leading to gradual destruction in the area of inflammation and accompanied by a high degree of pain syndrome intensity.
At the beginning of the development of the disease, the pain syndrome is characterized by a short-term character that occurs in the case of high physical activity. As the pathology develops, the pain intensifies, acquiring a paroxysmal character.
Indomethacin ointment can be used to relieve pain and local anti-inflammatory action at all stages of the development of pathology. The drug is used only as part of a specific, complex therapy.
Bursitis is an inflammatory pathology that develops in the synovial bag of the joint and is associated with the accumulation of fluid in the articular cavity. It is accompanied by a sharp pain, aggravated by movement and acquiring a stabbing or shooting character at night.
Indomethacin ointment is used in the acute stage of bursitis, as a local anti-inflammatory drug with an analgesic effect. The use of the drug as part of complex therapy contributes to the complete healing of the patient.
Sciatica is a non-inflammatory disease that occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed in any part of it as a result of injury or pregnancy.
At the initial stages, the pathology manifests itself as a slight pain in the lower back, radiating to the gluteus muscle. Subsequently, the pain syndrome intensifies, acquiring an intense, encircling, cutting and restricting movement character and accompanied by autonomic and neurological symptoms.
Indomethacin ointment, as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), can be used for alleviating the intensity of pain and relieving inflammation in the acute and chronic stages of development disease. The use of the drug is indicated only in combination with conservative or surgical treatment.
Lumbago - a characteristic pain syndrome in the lumbosacral spine can occur against the background of degenerative changes or injuries of the spinal column. The condition is accompanied by an intense pain syndrome that provokes the appearance of pronounced motor disorders.
Indomethacin ointment for a disease is used to relieve pain and inflammation, but can be used only in conjunction with specific or surgical treatment aimed at eliminating destructive changes in the joints of the lumbar pillar.
For muscle pains of rheumatic and non-rheumatic origin
Indomethacin ointment (indications for use are detailed in the instructions for the drug) is used in medicine as pain relief drug for persistent aching muscle pain, both rheumatoid and non-rheumatoid character.
|Pathology||Characteristics of the accompanying pain syndrome|
|Fibromyalgia||Diffuse, aching pain in the muscles, aggravated by pressure and localized in the neck, lower back, upper and lower extremities.|
|Myositis||It is associated with the appearance of severe, paralyzing pain in one muscle, accompanied by swelling and redness.|
|Polymyositis||A dangerous disease in which a constant, spill-over pain syndrome spreads to the muscles of the pelvic and shoulder girdle. The pain does not subside even at rest, provoking the appearance of muscle weakness.|
|Epidemic myalgia||Paroxysmal pain lasting from several minutes to 1 hour.|
Indomethacin ointment is prescribed for pathology as the main drug that has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and warming effect and can be supplemented with physiotherapeutic procedures.
For post-traumatic inflammation of soft tissues and musculoskeletal system
Indomethacin ointment (indications for the use of the drug are justified by its good anti-inflammatory qualities) is prescribed as the main anti-inflammatory, analgesic and decongestant drug for post-traumatic inflammation of soft tissues and musculoskeletal systems.
The main symptom of pathology is the appearance of an intense pain syndrome, with a sharp or stabbing character, arising in the area of rupture and supplemented by muscle weakness and tissue swelling.
The use of indomethacin ointment is indicated after the application of a tendon suture, the main surgical treatment and is used to relieve pain and injury caused by inflammatory process.
Ligament rupture is a traumatic condition associated with a violation of their integrity under the influence of force, exceeding the strength of the ligament.
Indomethacin ointment is used in conservative treatment as an anti-inflammatory, decongestant and analgesic drug.
Contusion - injury to soft tissues of a closed nature that occurs after an impact and affects only the upper layers of the skin. With severe bruising, the lesion can also affect the periosteum.
Injury is accompanied by the occurrence of severe pain in the affected area, supplemented by the formation of a bruise and swelling of the bruised area. The nature of the pain syndrome is unstable and can change from sharp to aching.
Indomethacin ointment for bruises is used as the main drug aimed at relieving the inflammatory syndrome and eliminating the pain effect.
Indomethacin ointment is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with a decongestant and analgesic effect, used to treat various types of injuries, rheumatoid and joint pain. The ointment prescribed as the main drug or as part of a specific therapy allows you to quickly eliminate inflammation and redness of the skin, as well as to relieve pain syndrome, which becomes the main cause of motor impairment activity.
