There is no cure or medication for Kohler's Osteochondrosis of the Tarsal Navicular.
1. This condition is typically treated with surgery, but it's important to understand that there are no guarantees that surgery will fix the problem. Surgery can be very expensive and risky. It may not be worth it to you if you only have mild symptoms.
2. If you do decide to go forward with surgery, then you should know that there are two main types: open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) and percutaneous pinning.
3. ORIF uses a large incision in order to access the bone, but requires less bone removal than percutaneous pinning does. However, ORIF can cause more post-surgical discomfort and has a higher risk of infection than percutaneous pinning does because of the larger incision needed for ORIF surgery.
4. Percutaneous pinning involves using a small incision and inserting pins into the navicular bone without removing any bone from your foot; this method also has a lower risk of infection than ORIF surgery does because there is no large incision involved in percutaneous pinning procedures like there would be if you were undergoing ORIF surgery instead!
The following is a list of medications that have been found effective in relieving pain and inflammation associated with this condition:
1. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): These drugs help to reduce swelling and pain by blocking enzymes that produce prostaglandins, which cause inflammation. Common NSAIDs include ibuprofen (Advil), naproxen (Aleve), celecoxib (Celebrex), and meloxicam (Mobic). The most commonly used NSAID is ibuprofen due to its low risk of side effects compared to other drugs.
2. Muscle relaxants: Muscle relaxants help reduce stiffness and muscle spasms by blocking chemicals called acetylcholine at nerve endings in muscles. Common muscle relaxants include cyclobenzaprine (Amrix), methocarbamol (Robaxin), metaxalone (Skelaxin), orphenadrine (Norflex), tizanidine (Zanaflex), and baclofen.
