Inflammation serves a purpose, as a natural response of the body to injury. However, excessive inflammation can lead to pain and stiffness and prevent proper healing. Dr. Roy Nini performs Traumeel/Zeel injections in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills as a safe treatment with no side effects to reduce inflammation, relieve symptoms, and allow natural healing to occur.
What Are Traumeel/Zeel Injections?
Traumeel and Zeel are two homeopathic formulations based on mineral extracts that have been widely used in sports medicine. Both products are blends of 14 different extracts, including Echinacea, yarrow, belladonna, and sulfur.
Injections of a combination of Traumeel and Zeel have been shown to:
- Reduce pain and inflammation within connective tissue and cartilage
- Reduce stiffness and improve function of the joint
- Improve synovial fluid surrounding an arthritic joint
Traumeel and Zeel solutions were developed by doctors in Europe using very low dosages of plant and mineral extracts. These medications have been available globally for more than 60 years. While exhibiting an excellent safety profile, Traumeel/Zeel injections help manage joint degeneration, pain, and inflammation associated with arthritis.
How Are Traumeel/Zeel Injections Used to Treat Musculoskeletal Disorders?
There are many uses for Traumeel and Zeel in sports medicine.
These medications can be injected:
- Into the joint to relieve pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis
- Into trigger points (knots in the muscles from which pain originates) to relieve back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions
- Into tender points (areas of pain around the joints) to relieve fibromyalgia pain

Study of Traumeel/Zeel Treatment Results
Heel, the makers of Traumeel and Zeel, announced the findings of a double blind, controlled clinical trial conducted to assess the safety and efficacy of Traumeel/Zeel injections into the joint.
The study involved 232 patients with knee pain, 45 to 80 years of age, who received injections of either Traumeel and Zeel or a placebo. Researchers found that Traumeel/Zeel injections reduced the pain of knee osteoarthritis by more than 60 percent.
