Started injections with procaine

Hi,

Today my homeopathic doctor who also does acupuncture started injecting my totally bend little finger with procaine. It's a fluid used with acupuncture to strengthen the effect of the needle. He has not promised me miracles but we want to try. I have to get the injections once a week.

Ofcourse I am curious someone has tried this too.
I'll keep you informed of my results.

alternatives

I hope it works, but based on what I know so far, those treatments are a waste of time. Many things have been tried, and much research has been performed, over decades, resulting in the conclusion that today there is no effective treatment other than surgery.

If you have a finger bent to 90 degrees, I suggest immediately finding a hand surgeon who has experience with DC.

alternatives

Hi Jim,

I think you are to negative about alternatives: in this forum you can read a lot of positive experiences with the needle treatment of dr. Badois cs. I have had surgery on a 90 degree finger and I am not very happy with it: after 6 monts(!) of fysiotherapy it's still not fully flexible because of a lot of scar tissue and bending and stretching it totally is painfull. Also a part of he finger is numb beause a nerve is dead. So I am very interested in alternatives...

considering surgery

From what I have read, the needle aponevrotomy treatment, as performed by Dr. Badois, is safe and effective. I'm not negative about it at all, I strongly considered it myself and may have it in the future. The big question with that form of treatment is recurrence.

Like you, I have some somewhat stiff, scarred fingers and some permanent nerve damage from surgery. Overall the surgeries were successful but they do take a toll.

So I'm very interested in alternatives. My impression is that just about everything that might be injected has already been tried, with no success.

I think the best 'alternative' on the horizon is injectable Collagenase.
