6 Best Homeopathic Medicines for Swollen Ankles

Causes of Swollen Ankles

Ankles may get swollen due to many reasons. The main causes behind swollen ankles are trauma, injury to ankle, sprained ankle, venous insufficiency, lymph edema (from improper functioning of lymphatic system), arthritis, heart disease (congestive heart failure), kidney disease, liver disease, infection, tumour, certain medications including calcium channel blockers, steroids, and antidepressants.

Homeopathic Treatment for Swollen Ankles

Homeopathic treatment follows a process of detailed investigation to manage the complaint of swollen ankles. Each case is investigated and analysed in depth prior to prescribing a medicine to rule out involvement of any vital organ in the etiology. Swollen ankles from injury, sprains and arthritis can be independently dealt with by Homeopathic medicines. In case a vital organ is involved, Homeopathic medicines can be used to support treatment together with other systems of medicine. Homeopathic medicines for swollen ankle should be taken only after consulting a physician. Self-medication should be avoided.

      Dear Dr Sharma,
      We have bone spurs in our family too, and I am looking into homeopathic remedies. At the moment I am reading the boook Musculo Skeleton Problems by Ian Watson. One of the things he suggests is rubbing the area with castor oil in the morning and evening. Do you think that works?

      It is an interesting book and I have just started it. I got it from Helios in the UK.

      I have bone spurs in my spine and I remember also my neck. Fortunately as I got older the muscles in my neck got stronger and the nerve impingement stopped.


    My age is 62. I am male. I take medicine for BP. No other medicine I take regularly. My left ankle and left foot is swollen. Morning after getting out from bed tremendous pain when put my foot on floor. Some days left ankle pain become severe. slowly it get adjusted after walking in room to better condition. Both the thumbs become painful and catching any thing become difficult. Shoulder joint elbow joint is ok. Sometime needle piercing sensation in heels is felt.

    I just visited a cardiologist about my swollen ankles and my blood pressure being high on the lower number. He thinks I am retaining water but when I took a water pill the ankle stayed swollen and my lower pressure stayed high. I also take meds for that and it didn’t get any lower. I have had my veins stripped and years later (10 years ago I had the blood supply deadened to bad veins. This problem is also in my family.
