Hemorrhoids can be a painful and uncomfortable condition affecting many adults. While some hemorrhoid cases resolve on their own or with at-home treatments, others persist and can significantly impact quality of life. If you’re dealing with stubborn hemorrhoids that won’t go away, Rapid Healthcare in Bolingbrook offers effective solutions to help you find relief and improve your well-being.

Understanding Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swollen veins in the lower rectum and anus, similar to varicose veins. They can develop inside the rectum (internal hemorrhoids) or under the skin around the anus (external hemorrhoids). Symptoms can include pain, itching, swelling, and bleeding during bowel movements.

Causes and Risk Factors

Several factors can contribute to the development and persistence of hemorrhoids, including:

  • Chronic constipation or diarrhea
  • Straining during bowel movements
  • Sitting for long periods, especially on the toilet
  • A low-fiber diet
  • Aging
  • Pregnancy
  • Obesity

Understanding these factors can help in managing symptoms and preventing future flare-ups.

Advanced Hemorrhoid Treatments at Rapid Healthcare

When conservative measures like dietary changes, over-the-counter creams, and sitz baths don’t alleviate hemorrhoid symptoms, it’s time to consider professional treatment. Rapid Healthcare in Bolingbrook specializes in three advanced hemorrhoid treatment options:

  1. Infrared Coagulation (IRC): This non-surgical treatment is ideal for small to medium-sized internal hemorrhoids. During the procedure, an infrared light is used to heat the hemorrhoid tissue, causing it to scar and shrink. The process is quick, typically painless, and requires no anesthesia. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.
  2. Sclerotherapy: This method involves injecting a solution directly into the hemorrhoid, which causes the vein walls to collapse and the hemorrhoid to shrink. Sclerotherapy is best suited for smaller internal hemorrhoids and offers a virtually painless experience with minimal recovery time.
  3. Rubber Band Ligation: This treatment is effective for larger internal hemorrhoids. The procedure involves placing a small rubber band around the base of the hemorrhoid, cutting off its blood supply. Within a week, the hemorrhoid falls off, leaving a small wound that heals on its own. Rubber band ligation is highly effective and can be performed in just a few minutes with little to no discomfort.
