Mesotherapy - A Treatment for Pain


Mesotherapy is a well-established method of treatment in France. It is a medical technique that was developed in 1952 by Dr. Michel Pistor. The therapeutic technique of mesotherapy involves the injection of very small doses of medications directly into the target area. It is a very effective treatment for acute and chronic pain. It also has a variety of other applications. A favorite quote from Dr. Pistor is inject “little, sparingly, and at the right place”.
The technique of mesotherapy is useful in that the treatment is applicable to a wide range of problems and is multi-purpose in its applications. The use of skin as a target organ gives us the benefit of being able to access a variety of regions that otherwise difficult to access. The skin is the largest organ of the body and medications administered through the skin produce topical effects, local effects, and in some cases, global effects. Mesotherapy combines the properties of medications with their delivery through the skin by needles to achieve a topical, local, or systemic effect.
In classical French mesotherapy teachings and techniques there are therapeutic recommended approaches in the following fields: Rheumatology, Neurology, Ophthalmology, ENT, Pulmonary, Gastroenterology, Urology, Sports Medicine, as well as general Family Practice. It is commonly used to treat musculoskeletal problems including such diverse diagnoses as tendonitis, tendonosis, arthritis, sprains, muscle spasms, and acute and chronic injuries. The purpose behind the treatment is to stimulate repair of the mesoderm and the target area.
