Hemorrhoid in its initial stages can be treated with the help of natural treatment therapies, mild medication, along with proper changes in your food habits, as well as regular exercise. However, in case the condition gets severe, then in that case, you may have to resort to clinical treatment therapies. Injection Sclerotherapy, Infrared Photocoagulation, Laser Coagulation as well as Hemorrhoid-ectomy, are some of the clinical therapies, which are available. Apart from these, hemorrhoid banding or ligation is another major clinical treatment therapy.
This therapy is by far the most common clinical therapies. It is one of the oldest therapies as well. So in case natural therapies prove to be of no use, then in that case, this therapy can prove to be of great help. Now, since hemorrhoids or piles are basically swollen blood vessels in the anus region, therefore this treatment tends to focus on the blood supply itself.
So, the therapy involves cutting down of the blood supply to the affected area, so that these protrusions wither away, due to lack of blood supply.
In this way, a painful condition can be treated and you can lead a normal and healthy life. The procedure is not very elaborate. In this, the physician uses a small rubber band for cutting of the blood supply to the hemorrhoid from the body. Thereafter, the blood supply gets permanently nipped off and hence the veins in the Piles dry up. Eventually, the piles are gone. This procedure takes place after administering proper anesthesia. The procedure would take some time. However, in most cases, the time duration is usually spanning around fifteen days.
The procedure might appear to be very simple.
However, the period during which the rubber band is put on the piles, is very painful and hence you should be prepared for it. Also, the recovery period might take longer than you expected. However, this therapy is not of use in case of fourth degree prolapsed hemorrhoids. At times, the pain may alleviate. Hence you should be ready to spend a few sleepless nights as well. You may also go through excessive bleeding during this period. Cases of infection may also occur. In such a case, you should consult your doctor, who would treat these problems.
However, after you have been treated, it does not mean that it would not get back. In most of the cases it does get back. Hence, it is in your best interest, to see to it, that you maintain a healthy lifestyle and proper food habits.
