Understanding Sclerosing Alcohol Injections

Our Gurnee Podiatry & Sports Medicine Assoc. facilities provide sclerosing alcohol injections administered by Dr. Schoene, Dr. Bever, and Dr. Joseph. This highly effective treatment delivers a specialized solution to targeted areas.

How Do Sclerosing Alcohol Injections Work? 

Sclerosing alcohol, composed primarily of ethanol, is used in medical procedures to induce sclerosis. The chemical composition of sclerosing alcohol, typically a high ethanol concentration, facilitates its therapeutic effect. Ethanol damages and irritates cells, triggering inflammation and subsequent scar tissue formation. When injected into targeted areas, sclerosing alcohol causes blood vessel constriction and eventual closure, reducing symptoms.

This mechanism of action is employed in various treatments, such as sclerotherapy for varicose veins or even some heart-related conditions. Our office utilizes this treatment for neuromas, such as Morton’s Neuroma.  Medical professionals carefully administer sclerosing alcohol to achieve desired outcomes while minimizing potential side effects.
