Treat your KNEE PAIN without Surgery

Treat your KNEE PAIN without Surgery

The most common reason for knee pain is Osteoarthritis.

What is it?

By far the most common joint disease, especially in later life.

Approximately 8.5 million people in India suffer from this osteoarthritis. Of which most are adults aged more than 40, but in recent times change in lifestyle is triggering it at a much younger age.

Triggering factors include Hormonal changes in Women, Obesity, Injuries, Occupational strain and other joint problems.

What happens?

In arthritis, the cartilage becomes roughened and destroyed. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage that lines and cushions the joint breakdown and bones rub painfully against each other causing sharp edges called osteophytes.

Which joints are affected?

It affects the small joints of fingers, weight-bearing joints like knees and vertebrae of back and neck leading to Cervical(Neck) and Lumbar spondilitis (Back) Pain.

Often the joints repair themselves adequately with time and the pain may settle. However in some cases the damage is not successfully repaired, the pain becomes more persistent and joint no longer works properly. The muscles around the joint also weaken which may, in turn, affect the joint stability.

What are the Symptoms?

  • Pain, Swelling, Stiffness, Immobility, Numbness in hands and on the foot.
  • The Warning Signs of Osteoarthritis
  • Steady or intermittent pain in joints
  • Stiffness in a joint after getting out of bed or sitting for a long time
  • Swelling or tenderness in one or more joints
  • A crunching feeling or the sound of bone rubbing on bone
  • Numbness in hands and on foot.

How is it Diagnosed?

X-ray of the joint, Blood and Urine tests for any possible infections, and Physical Assessment.

How to stop the progression?

  • If you are overweight try and lose some weight
  • Wear appropriate footwear
  • Keep yourself active by doing appropriate strengthening exercises

Treat your CHRONIC BACK PROBLEMS without surgery

Did you know that 4 out of 5 people experience back pain at some point in time? Yes, back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide and is one of the most common reasons for missed work.

A common cause of back pain is an injury to a muscle or ligament and can occur due to improper lifting, poor posture and lack of regular exercise. Being overweight and sedentary life habits may also greatly affect your back.

Back pain can also result from more-serious injuries, such as slipped disc; from arthritis, spondylitis and other age-related changes in your spine.

Most back pains get better within a few weeks without treatments. But for back pains that do not improve even after a week of home treatment surely require further evaluation.

*Disclaimer: All relevant physical activities must be learned and performed under proper expert guidance

To avoid development of back pain perform exercises which do not strain your back, like swimming and walking. Being overweight can also strain your back muscles.

Shoulder Arthritis

Treat Shoulder Arthritis with Homeopathy

Shoulder arthritis is a degenerative condition in which the normally smooth cartilage covering the ball and socket of the shoulder joint is lost due to joint wear and tear, injury or autoimmune disease like Rheuamtoid arthritis.

In shoulder arthritis the smooth cartilage that covers the ends of the bones gets worn away causing the rough bone ends to rub against each other. This bone-on-bone contact produces pain, stiffness, difficulty sleeping and the inability to do day to day activities.

Shoulder arthritis may result commonly from Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Rotator Cuff Tears or may follow surgery for Recurrent Dislocations. When arthritis occurs in a younger person it is often due to injury or problems from a previous surgery or rheumatoid arthritis.

When arthritis occurs in an older person it is usually from wear and tear i.e., Osteoarthritis or from a rotator cuff problem.

Loss of shoulder motion is common in shoulder arthritis. Shoulder arthritis may affect the individual daily activities such as sleeping, housework driving as well as the individual ability to shake hands, and hug.

"Symptoms include pain, stiffness, limited range of motion, swelling and tenderness of the joint"

Individuals with chronic shoulder pain often feel fatigued because of the extra effort required to cope with the condition. Diagnosis can be done by physical examination of the patient and through imaging techniques like x-rays,mri.

In Homoeopathy a detailed case history, clinical examination and Lab investigations help in diagnosis of Shoulder arthritis. Since it is a degenerative joint disease, the pathological changes in the joint are irreversible. The main goal of treatment is the prevention of further damage, reduction of joint pain and any swelling and maintenance of joint function.


With Homoeopathy medicines you will get relief from the joint pain and stiffness, the severity and frequency of the symptoms will reduce, the mobility of the joints will be improved and the progress of the disease will be slowed down. Since there is no side effects or drug dependencies the medicines can be used as an alternative to pain killers.

Along with Homoeopathic medicine you need to carry out exercises in order to maintain the joint mobility and improve the range of motion of the joint. Lifting of heavy weights needs to be avoided.
