Top Homeopathic Remedies for Muscle Weakness

Reduced power or strength in one or more muscles is known as muscle weakness. Muscles are a bundle of fibrous, contractile tissues that possess the ability to contract to produce movement. The exchange of signals between the muscle and nervous system takes place at the neuromuscular junction. The muscles are unable to contract normally if the connection between the nervous system and muscles get injured or damaged. This, in turn, leads to muscle weakness. Homeopathic medicines for muscle weakness works very effectively to restore the strength back into the muscles.

Causes of Muscle Weakness

Muscle weakness can arise for various reasons, which include prolonged bed rest, immobilization, lack of exercise, a sedentary lifestyle (if a person doesn’t use muscles, then muscle fibers are replaced by fat and muscles can’t contract effectively), aging. Increased calcium levels in the blood, low sodium levels, pinching of nerves in the spine, and Myasthenia gravis (an autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that causes weakness and fatigue of the muscles.) are some other causes.
