Why Surgery For Knee Pain, Slip Disc Or Other Joint Pain? When Homeopathy Can Give You Permanent Relief!

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy, Gold medallist
Homeopath, Navi Mumbai
Why Surgery For Knee Pain, Slip Disc Or Other Joint Pain? When Homeopathy Can Give You Permanent Relief!

Pain may occur either when a joint move or when it is at rest. Sometimes, the pain might from stem of the muscles, ligaments, or tendons. It can be knee joint pain, shoulder joint pain, or frozen shoulder, neck pain or cervical spondylitis, back pain or lumbar spondylitis, heel pain. Examples of such conditions include tendinitis and bursitis can be cured permanently with the help of homoeopathy only.

Arthritis may be associated with the pelvis or spine joints. Different disorders affect different joints and the causes and treatment options vary accordingly. There are some disorders which affect the same joint on both the sides of the body, such as both hands and the knees. In certain disorders, the pain resulting from arthritis keeps on moving from one joint to another (migratory arthritis).

The most common joint disorders are

  1. Fibromyalgia (widespread tenderness and pain in the muscles), pain in whole body and tiredness
  2. Bursitis (inflammation of the joint cushions) or tendinitis (inflammation of the tissues which connect the bone to the muscle)
    • Knee joint pain: Swollen and painful knee due to torn ligament or tendon, pain in back of knee due to baker’s cyst, less synovial fluid in knee joints cause friction and stiffness in joints.
    • Shoulder joint pain or frozen shoulder: Shoulder becomes inflamed and stiff, greatly restricting motion (can’t raise arms) and causing pain. Pain is usually constant, worse at night, and aggravate in cold weather. Due to surgery or arm fracture lead immobility during recovery causes shoulder capsule to stiffen. Mostly females above 40 age or diabetic people are affected by this.
    • Neck pain or cervical spondylitis: The symptoms of this are pain around the shoulder blade, stiff neck, headache mostly in back of head. Patients will complain of pain, tingling and numbness along the arms and fingers. Holding neck in an uncomfortable position for prolonged period at the time of working on computer/laptop aggravate it. Smoking, heavy lifting also causes it.
    • Back pain or lumbar spondylitis: This happens because of deformity or abnormal spine curvature, inflammation of the vertebra and some amount of fusing, which gives painful stiffness in back. Pain and discomfort aggravate when standing, sitting, or walking.
    • Heel pain: This occurs either under the heel (plantar fasciitis) or just behind it (Achilles tendinitis. In Post-static dyskinesia (pain after rest), symptoms tend to be worse just after getting out of bed in the morning, and after a period of rest during the day. After a bit of activity symptoms often improve a bit. 

Causes

  1. Most of the time, the root cause is arthritis. However, the reasons which cause arthritis are different from each other, in the way:
    • The types of joints involved.
    • The number of joints involved.
    • Whether the central area of the skeleton is involved or not.
    • Whether it is (a) acute arthritis (sudden) (b)chronic arthritis (longstanding)
  2. Acute arthritis which affects multiple joints can be due to:
    • Viral infections
    • A chronic disorder which was already present in any joint
  3. Chronic arthritis causing pain in multiple joints is most commonly due to:

Warning Signs Include

  1. Swelling and redness of the joints.
  2. Fever, chills or sweat.
  3. Pain, immobility, Stiffness in joint
  4. Difficulty in walking, limiting range of motion in joint

Treatment Methods

Homoeopathic mode of treatment is very effective in treating joint pains. Homeopathic medicines treat joint pains by moderating the activity of immune system. They help to reduce joint inflammation and symptoms including pain, swelling and stiffness of joints.

Homoeopathy offers a wide range of medicines for rheumatoid arthritis. Yet, there is not any single treatment for all problems associated with this condition. The most appropriate Homoeopathic medicine for rheumatoid arthritis is selected based on an in-depth analysis of individual symptoms. Medicine will be selected on the basis of their characteristic symptom indications and these medicines give miraculous results. For getting early results we need to take following management with medication:

  • The application of heat with a heating pad will lessen the pain to a great extent.
  • Cold application with ice cubes wrapped in a cloth will provide relief.
  • A sling or splint bag immobilizes the joint, which relieves the pain.

Consult with a good qualified homeopathic doctor as soon as possible for permanent cure.

Twitching can occur after physical activity because lactic acid accumulates in the muscles used during exercise. It most often affects the arms, legs, and back. Muscle twitches caused by stress and anxiety are often called “nervous ticks.” They can affect any muscle in the body

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. If there is no history of an injury to your affected shoulder and there are no s/s of inflammation or infection, then it is advisable to: - ice packs application intensively at home for pain relief - take a short course of anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine, tab diclofenac etc or anything which suits your body for 5-7 days - stop your physical activity till pain completely subsides - intensive physical therapy, training and proper muscle conditioning once pain has subsided - slow resumption of physical activities with proper pre activity warm up and stretching of muscles and short increments in duration of physical activity each day as per pain tolerance. You should feel better in around 2 weeks time and if your symptoms still persists, we will have to get you evaluated in form of investigations. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
