Most people think that surgery is the only cure for treating hemorrhoids. Actually surgery is needed in severe or rare cases only. Nowadays there are so many choices to get rid of or to treat hemorrhoid treatment methods. In this condition it is better increase the intake of water as well as fiber.
The sooner you treat hemorrhoid the better it is. In other words, if you treat it at its early stage then it will vanish forever just in couple of weeks. Actually with the increase of water as well as fiber intake the strain on bowel movement will be less as the stool will be soft.
The medical practitioners perform special procedures to deal with this problem. The most common and the effective procedure is IRC hemorrhoid treatment which is also referred to as Infrared Coagulation hemroids treatment. Different studies have been conducted regarding low-level infrared technology for medical purposes but still there is a lot unexplored.
|In order to treat hemorrhoids the IRC uses infrared wavelength of particular intensity in order to bring chemical changes within the body. As a result of this the blood coagulation takes place within the hemorrhoids and causes the shrinking of the hemorrhoids and hence it finishes off completely. As this procedure is quite easily tolerated and it is fast too, most sufferers prefer it. The best thing about this procedure is that it is free from any hassle and it can be performed in the office. In order to destroy the blood vessels the medical practitioners use heating probes while in cryotherapy the frozen probe is used. In the latest method the infrared beam is used in order to shrink the veins. There is no requirement of anesthesia and the method is pain-free.|
IRC Hemorrhoid Treatment Works For All Types Of Hemorrhoids?
A thing to remember is that uses of IRC to treat hemorrhoid is only limited to stage III internal hemorrhoids of prolapse. It is not at all effective for external hemorrhoids. The difference in both the types of hemorrhoids is the source of its origination. The thin mucus membrane causes external hemorrhoids while internal hemorrhoids result from outer skin of our body. As the skin is thick as compared to mucus so it is not possible for the infrared beam to reach each and every tissue of external hemorrhoid, so it's useless.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Infrared radiation is used in IRC for tissues of hemorrhoids. This radiation is not at all like the radiation of the nuclear weapons so no damage of living tissue takes place. The simple definition of infrared radiation or IR is that this electromagnetic radiation is of shorter wavelength than the wavelength of microwaves while longer than the wavelength of visible light. When the infrared radiation comes in contact with the body then chemical change takes place as a result of which things settle down internally without causing any harm.
At the point of hemorrhoid where the IRC hemorrhoid treatment is targeting, the coagulation of the blood takes place. One has to be careful because if it happens in the wrong location then the blood coagulates within the region of hemorrhoid which instead of curing the problem gives rise to another problem i.e. thrombosed hemorrhoid. In case of blood coagulation in any major vein then a person can die too as the clot of blood can move to heart.
The flow of blood is then slowed through the hemorrhoid. The supply of oxygen to the hemorrhoid continues and the tissues do not die but the process is no more efficient. As a result some tissues die and some start producing toxins which gets out into other tissues and give rise to full inflammatory response of the body. If it is ignored for a longer period of time the toxins can enter in the bloodstream and the patient can suffer from gangrene.
The quick dying of the hemorrhoid tissue starts and so the toxins remain in the hemorrhoid and finally the whole process becomes faster and the body gets rid of the problem completely.
This method of treating hemorrhoid is a little expensive and sometimes multiple session may be required for treatment. It is a must to go for follow up one year after the procedure.
