Homeopathy: An Ideal Cure for Knee Pain

Homeopath, Ajmer
Homeopathy: An Ideal Cure for Knee Pain

The knee joint is a very complicated joint in the body as it helps in a number of movements. Knee pain may result from sudden injuries, osteoarthritis or due to overuse and over exertion on the knees.

The various causes of knee pain are:

  1. Osteoarthritis
  2. Injury to the knee joint
  3. Being overweight puts stress on the knee, resulting in knee pain
  4. Infections in the knee joint result in knee pain
  5. Movements such as heavy squats may cause the knee joint to be sprained

Homeopathy is a holistic method of treatment that focuses on treating the cause of the disease rather than just the symptoms. There are many homeopathic remedies that are used for the treatment of knee pain:

  1. Rhus Tox: This remedy is used to treat knee pain that results from repetitive motion of the knee joint.
  2. Bryonia Alba: This is used in treating knee pain that gets worse when the knee joint is moved. Also, it is advised to rest after using this remedy.
  3. Ledum Pal: This is an excellent treatment for knee pain that is caused by rheumatism and gout. The symptoms tend to worsen under cold conditions.
  4. Guaiacum: If the knee pain is caused by abscess in the knee joint, then guaiacum is used to treat it. It is advised to apply cold compress to the affected area to allow it to heal faster.
  5. Benzoic acid: If the cause of the knee pain is deposition of uric acid, benzoic acid is used in the treatment.
  6. Hypericum: This remedy is used to treat pain that stems from rheumatoid arthritis, such as pain while contracting the knees. It is an effective remedy to reduce pain in the nerves around the knee joint.
  7. Colchicum: This remedy is administered if the knee pain worsens after moving the leg. It is advised to rest the knee and apply warm compress on the affected area to reduce the pain after this particular remedy is administered.

NSAIDS like zerodol are not to be used indefinitely in osteoarthritis. They are best suited for week or ten days harmful effects of taken for longer duration. Osteoarthritis can be managed conservative by life style modification and quadriceps exercises. There are many minimal invasive interventions which can be helpful if activities of daily are hampered and pain is unbearable surgery can also be considered. Please consult for individualized decision making. Take care.

Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Slipped Disc?

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Slipped Disc?

Herniated disc, bulged disc, protruded intervertebral disc (PIVD) are the different names of one condition. This is a condition where- disc in between the two vertebral bodies starts peeping out on one side- anterior or posterior. These discs are just like the bags filled with liquid material, which work like shock-absorbent. There are several hard bony vertebrae in the vertebral column and there is plenty of movements with these vertebrae. When we look on one side to other side, we look upwards, downwards or we twist and even we bend forward or backward in each and every condition, there will be a movement in these bones, these discs decide the free movements of the spine. Along with this- when we walk or run there will be shocks and jerks to all these bones and these bags decide that there wont be any kind of jerks in between the bones. So, these discs are of multiple uses.

Our spine is inverted “S” shaped. There are two main curvatures in the spine which are free to move- Cervical and Lumbar curvatures. These curvatures of the spine are maintained due to the spaces in between the two vertebrae. Whenever there is a loss or change (specially reduction) of this space between two vertebrae- pressure will be exerted on the intervertebral discs. This uneven pressure on the disc causes- protrusion/bulge/herniation of the disc- this is the condition known as SLIPPED DISC, in layman language. Why does disc slip

Generally, slipped disc condition is diagnosed by its signs and symptoms. When slipped disc starts exerting pressure on the nerves surround the disc- the nerve will be excited which gives sensation of- Pain, Burning or Numbness in the related area of the nerve. This sensation can travel long far away to the areas, which are being supplied by the nerve and can be limited to a particular location in neck or back even. Sign & Symptoms of Slipped Disc.

Panchakarma treatments like Kati vasthi, Greeva vasthi, Abhyangham , Elakizhi , Basthi, Pizhichil cures the root cause of herniated disc.This should be followed by proper diet and yoga exercise to remain healthy. Kati vasti is a specialized therapy that relieves and nourishes the lower back using herbal oils. A specially prepared warm herbal oil is poured over the lumbo sacral area and retained inside a dam made out of dough.

The hot medicated oils helps melt lower spine rigidity and strengthen your bone tissue.Increases the circulation in the region, as the herbal oil gets deeply absorbed into the skin, and both nourishes and strengthens the muscles and nerves. Elakizhi is a massage which uses small herbal pouches made of various herbs which are warmed in medicated oils.

They are then used to massage the entire body or specific areas like the back, neck, shoulders, hands and joints. Its used in curing disc related problems. It does away with pain to give you comfort and much strength

So, we need to treat the condition, wisely and in a wholesome manner, rather just to removal of the protruded tissues (Laminotomy) and this is the basic reason there are risks associated to the surgery of the spine and in almost more than 45% cases patients had to go for a second surgery to stay pain free. Why Surgery for spine doesn’t succeed. Secondly, this is a mechanical problem so medicines alone can give you temporary relief rather than the cure- So better you save your money and invest it on complete cure for the problem, rather than just taking the pain killers and medicines which were indicated in epilepsy to just reduce the signs and symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Hi, Walking on a levelled surface for 5 kms is fine. But climbing the stairs up and down is very strenuous to the joints and the muscles as they are over worked. Joints get worn out at an early date due to excessive usage. Therefore, stop climbing up and down the stairs and confine to walking only, especially at this age.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. It appears that this is not an orthopaedic case because it is only after inactivity of night time. I will advise you to get in touch of a vascular or a general surgeon and get a vascular cause ruled out. I will be more than happy to assist you if everything is normal from their side. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena
