Title: Intramuscular diclofenac sodium as adjuvant therapy for type I decompression sickness: a case report
Author: Douglas, JD
Abstract: The residual pain of type I decompression sickness (limb bends) occurring despite recompression therapy is due to an acute inflammatory reaction in the soft tissue around the joint. This case history reports an excellent response in resolving residual pain by the use of an intramuscular injection of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, diclofenac sodium. The theoretical reasons for this are discussed.
