Hip pain is a prevalent complaint that is often seen in clinical practice, and it can happen to people of any age group. The hip joint bears our body weight and helps us walk, jump and run. Hip pain can arise from problems in the hip joint itself or the structures surrounding it. Homeopathic medicines help reduce pain in the hip as well as the related stiffness and tenderness.

  1. Dawn Lewis says:

    My brother has arthritis in his hip and the head of the femur on which fits into the socket is completely worn down. He has been told he has to have a hip replacement done. The problem is he just was treated for cancer and the doctors do not want to do the surgery until his cancer treatments shows he is cancer free. He lives with constant pain and takes over the counter pain relievers but the pain is bad. He does not want to take prescription drugs for they are addicting. He cannot get the surgery for at least 6 mths. He needs some kind of help naturally for the pain. Please respond.
    Thank You

Enough to wake me up.
