Arthritis of the knee

Knee pain? Try homeopathy.                                                                  image

One of the most common causes of knee pain is the osteoarthritis of the knee jointt. This is most common in the old and middle age groups. Osteoarthritis generally affects the weight-bearing joints such as the knee, but it may harm any other joint too.

The pain and the swelling caused by it can result in one?s life getting limited to hardly routine movements.

Homeopathic intervention done at the right stage can give significant relief from pain and swelling. This system of medicine has an edge over the conventional pain killers by providing relief which is not short-lived but has a lasting effect. There is another distinct advantage; it stops further damage to the cartilage thereby controlling the advancement of the disease. Moreover, homeopathic treatment (under professional guidance) does not have any side-effects even if the medicines are used for a long period.

But what is Osteoarthritis and how does it affect the knee joint? Among the over 100 different types of arthritic conditions, osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. Osteoarthritis affects the knee joint by damaging the cartilage (Cartilage is made up of a protein substance that acts as a ?cushion? between the bones of the joints) in the knee joint. The cartilage in the knee joint slowly degenerates. In advanced cases, it may disappear and the bones start rubbing against each other and causing more pain. When bones start to rub against each other, bony growth may occur around the joints.

In the initial stages of knee osteoarthritis, one may simply feel deep aching in the knee joint. As it advances, common symptoms include pain that is worse after an exercise session or weight bearing, swelling in the joint, limited movement of the knee joint, stiffness following periods of inactivity such as sleeping or sitting; cracking or grating sounds in the knee joint. As the damage to the knee joint advances, the joint may become less movable and pain may occur even when the joint is at rest and can keep the person awake throughout of the night.

The real cause of osteoarthritis is not very clear. Medical researchers believe that it is due to a combination of factors that include aging, injury to the joint or stress, being overweight and genetic factors.

As mentioned earlier, a carefully prescribed homoeopathic medicine can be a great help in relieving pain and increasing the mobility of the joint. Arnica Montana, Rhus Tox, Bryonia Alba, Ledum Pal, Apis Mellifica and Ostearthritic Nosode (OAN) (OAN is a homoeopathic medicine prepared from the synovial fluid of an ostearthritic knee) are some of the important homoeopathic medicines used in treating osteoarthritis of the knee. Another medicine that requires a special mention is Calcarea Flour

    CONSULTATION NOTE

    We saw Kriti for review today following her complex reconstructive surgery to her left knee four weeks ago. She had a left knee arthroscopy, removal of loose bodies, microfracture and a modified Le Maire extra-articular tenodesis. It has been four weeks since surgery. Examining her, she has got a negative pivot now, the knee is still quite swollen but she has got full extension and she flexes to at least 90°. A Lachman test is now far more normal, probably a Grade I or II.

    Going forwards therefore, we want her to wean herself off her brace and then crutches. She needs a very careful and focused knee rehabilitation programme. She needs to get the swelling down and full range back in the first instance. She needs to avoid any impact or twisting activities. She needs a physiotherapy programme working on proprioception, core strength and quads and strength ring of muscle

    I am interested in homeopathy medeciene so that her cartilage and ligaments repair s soon and does not create problem later .
    I was already giving her causticum 30
    Syphytum 30
    Arnica 200 and Rita 200
    Argentinum 30
    But than thought why not consult some experts
    Can u pl digest some medeciene asap. My age is 29

She needs a physiotherapy programme working on proprioception, core strength and quads and hamstring strengthening. She lives in Tower Bridge and therefore I have strongly recommended she attend my friends and colleagues at HFS clinics in America Square for this rehab programme. Specifically, Greg Ryan is excellent who is based there.

    I feel a inner pain in my right knee , specially while I kick my bike.and when I take stairs.
    Prosenjit biswas. Age 30

    • if knee pain once started,,, then you should avoid kicking bike and stressing knees by moving up/down stairs….care is more important than treatment in arthritis (if predisposed or even exposed)
