Piquant question: why do many injections do it in the “fifth point”

Many people are afraid of injections. They can be understood. Sometimes it happens that the injection is really very painful. However, even without this, there is very little pleasant in the procedure of this kind, especially when the injection is prescribed to the patient in the fifth point. For some people, this is an additional inconvenience. Hence the logical question – why exactly there.

In fact, most intramuscular injections can be made in any place where there is a sufficient amount of”meat”. This can be an arm, leg, or shoulder. However, very often doctors prescribe such injections in the buttock. Especially if this injection is not one and should be done regularly. Every nurse knows the answer to the question “why exactly?”.

The fact is that the muscles contain a large number of blood vessels and, most importantly, nerve endings. If you get a needle in any of them, you can cause a person terrible pain. For the most part, it is precisely because of such “incidents” that a halo of hateful attitude has formed around the injections. However, a person has buttocks that have a fairly large amount of muscle mass and do not contain so many vessels and nerves.

With a shot in the ass, you can not choose any place. The buttocks are divided into four parts. It is more correct and safer to prick the upper outer square. There are no nerve trunks or blood vessels. An injection in this area is absolutely safe. If the injections are regular, then every day the buttocks alternate.

If you prick lower, there is a risk of getting into the sciatic nerve. This is fraught with not only terrible pain, but also a violation of the human ability to move the leg. By the way, prick pricks in the ass, including for reasons of psychology – a person does not see the needle, what the doctor or nurse does, and therefore he is not so afraid. Most often, the patient does not have time to notice anything.
