If your doctor suspects that your housemaid's knee is caused by infection, they may draw some fluid from your knee, as described above. They can send this fluid off to the laboratory for tests. Whilst waiting for the results, they may prescribe some antibiotics for you to take (for example, flucloxacillin with phenoxymethylpenicillin (penicillin V) , or co-amoxiclav ). Usually, these antibiotics can be taken by mouth. If the infection is severe, your doctor may suggest that you be admitted to hospital and given antibiotics into your veins (intravenous antibiotics).
I am very pleased, especially with the inferno wrap. At first when I received it, I was wondering if it was going to really help, more than my heating pad. I can tell you today, my wrist has gotten so much better! I use the inferno wrap every evening in my down time before heading to bed, on the weekend did use it much more and believe that did help. I had severely stretched/pulled the tendons in my wrist, became very painful, going about the routines of life. I am so very happy with the purchase and am a big fan of the Mendmeshop, thanks for helping me to get my life back on the road to being somewhat normal! I do like the freezie wrap too, being able to put it on and leave it there but still move around. I will surely recommend your site to anyone I know in the future that injures themselves and wants to be on the road to recovery as soon as possible.
Treatment for bursitis depends on the underlying cause. Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation (RICE) is one strategy to decrease the symptoms of bursitis. Pain and swelling may be managed with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). If the bursa is very swollen, the doctor may drain excess fluid. Corticosteroids injected into the affected bursa are sometimes used to decrease inflammation. The doctor may recommend the use of a cane, splint, brace, or other support to reduce stress on the affected joint. In some cases, physical therapy may be ordered to help strengthen the area and encourage improved mobility. Surgery may be considered in severe cases when other treatments have been ineffective.
