This procedure involves injecting a sclerosant substance into lax ligaments to reduce ligament laxity usually following injury. This can be particularly useful following injuries where ligaments have healed in a lengthened fashion thus predisposing to instability around a particular joint.
It is particularly useful around the knee where there is chronic laxity of the MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) and also around the ankle with chronic lateral ligament insufficient producing ankle instability.
Usually a course of 3-5 injections are required at weekly intervals.
Dr Davies can assess if this treatment would be suitable for your particular injury.
