Homeopathic Remedies For Sciatica!

DHMS, DI.HOM
Homeopath, Delhi
Homeopathic Remedies For Sciatica!

The longest nerve in the body is the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve starts from the lower part of the spine, through your hip to the back of the leg. So when it is said sciatica, we refer to pain in this nerve. Since the nerve covers the spine, hip and leg, sciatic pain is felt in the areas through which it passes. The lower leg muscles and sensation in the legs, thighs and feet are controlled by this nerve.

Symptoms usually include:

  1. Pain that radiates from the lower back to the hip and to the leg
  2. Sharp, tingling, dull, constant or burning pain
  3. Loss of bladder or bowel control
  4. Sneezing or coughing increases pain
  5. Moving the leg gets difficult so usual activities like walking, sitting and standing become painful

Homeopathic remedies are easy and gentle on the body. Homeopathy aims to boost the body's immune system so it can fight all its weaknesses. The following remedies may prove to be useful:

  1. Ammonium Muriaticum: It is taken for chronic pain in the heel or for chronic backache or when straightening the knee gets difficult as hamstrings contract. It is also taken for limping.
  2. Bellis Perennis: In periosteum injuries, stiffness and deep aches in the spine Bellis Perennis is used. It is also used for tailbone injuries. It is also helpful for nerve pains during pregnancy.
  3. Calcarea Fluorica: If the vertebra degenerates after trauma to the spine, then Calcarea Fluorica can be useful.
  4. Cicuta: The worst back injuries with serious trauma and muscles spasms are treated with Cicuta.
  5. Hypericum: Hypericum is suggested for tailbone injuries, temporary paralysis, spinal concussions and for sharp pain that tingles and moves upwards.
  6. Rhus Tox: If after lifting weights, overexerting muscles and exposure to anything wet, you feel tearing and burning pain, then Rhus tox is beneficial. Cramps that get better after heat application, but get worse after exposed to the cold are also treated with Rhus tox.
  7. Ruta: Stiffness and pain from back injuries, twisting the wrong way and bruises are prescribed with Ruta. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Hi I am Dr Akshay from Fortis hospital , New Delhi. I am not quite sure that it is caused by hot water bottle. Anyways you would require maybe some footwear modification and a short course of analgesics for relief. If still in doubt kindly get in touch with me.

Prognosis is good. Do not worry. There is slight meniscus and tendon inflammation. Chondromalacia patellae means undersurface of patella (knee cap) is inflamed. Just take anti inflammatory medicines, do ice fomentation (3 times per day). It will take 4-6 weeks for inflammation to subside.

Hi it can be fibromyalgia. Some test may be required like cervical xray, diabetes, calcium, vitamin d etc. But first it will be good if you visit orthopaedic or physiotherapist personally for clinical examination. Meanwhile take hot water bath twice a day and take healthy and balanced diet. Best wishes.

Hi, try curing it by exercises and medications, if it keeps recurring, then surgery is a good solution, you have to judge how much your lifestyle and work is getting affected, and accordingly take a decision, send me the mri scan images for me to take a look.

Lupus is autoimmune disease that is systematic. Means body gets angry with itself and it's protective response to fight illnesses gets low. Lupus does affect the joints as swollen and painful with mild fever. The course of disease is unpredictable with flare ups alternating with remissions, female sex hormones do increase the risk of flare up. Treatment is steroids along with immunosuppressants. Unpredictable with our system of medicine. You can try ayurveda or homeopathy. Good luck.
