HEALTH EDUCATION ADVICE

If you have just suffered a trauma or contusion, or if you have osteoarthritis of the knee, you can use FLECTORTISSUGELEP to relieve your pain, but:

If you have a sprained ankle

- if you absolutely cannot stand on your leg to take 4 steps,

- or if a haematoma (bruise) appears within 24 to 48 hours or if there is a deformation or a very important oedema (swelling), you must consult your doctor who alone will judge the necessity of an X-ray and an orthopaedic treatment.

In case of tendino-ligamentary pain

if the pain is such that you cannot use the upper or lower limb that is causing you pain, you must consult your doctor without delay.

In case of knee osteoarthritis, your doctor has made the diagnosis your doctor has diagnosed your knee osteoarthritis and has prescribed a treatment with FLECTORTISSUGELEP which should allow your pain to diminish or even disappear completely within 15 days. If a new attack of pain occurs, you will recognize your mechanical pain when going up and down stairs or when walking, especially on uneven ground. You can use FLECTORTISSUGELEP under these conditions. If the pain is different: predominantly nocturnal or accompanied by redness, rash, severe swelling, fever, malaise or diffuse pain, you should consult your doctor immediately.

In all cases

if there is a complete functional impotence, you must consult your doctor without delay.
