With age, injury, or overuse, the cartilage covering articulating surfaces of the bones breaks down. Underlying bone becomes distorted and thickened, restricting joint movement and sometimes causing episodes of inflammation, pain, and swelling; joint most commonly affected are the load bearing ones- hips, knees, and spine; 90% of people over 40 have some degree of osteoarthritis in one or more joints. The condition can be aggravated by being overweight, by an over 'acid' diet and by laxative abuse.
Conventional treatments include pain killers, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroid injections into joints, physiotherapy to prevent muscles wasting, and replacement of worn joints, especially hips; hip replacement have a high success rate but may themselves have to be replaced within 20-30 years. Homeopathy offers constitutional treatment if osteoarthritis is chronic.
Osteoarthritis has been treated by homeopathy.
Osteoarthritis requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
