Homeopathic Medicines for Shoulder Pain

Sanguinaria Can, Ferrum Met, Rhus Tox, Phytolacca Decandra, Colchicum Autumnale, Bryonia Alba and Ruta Graveolens are the most commonly indicated medicines for shoulder pain.
These medicines also help manage accompanying symptoms like stiffness, swelling, and tenderness. They further aim at decreasing any inflammation and help heal the muscles, tendons, and ligaments by encouraging natural healing within the body.

Natural medicines for shoulder pain are made from natural substances and do not cause any side effects. They help alleviate pain by restoring the body’s natural healing process. The most commonly used homeopathic medicines for shoulder pain include:

1. Sanguinaria Can – For Shoulder Pain on Right Side

Sanguinaria Can is the medicine indicated for shoulder pain that occurs on the right side. People who need Sanguinaria Can experience difficulty in raising the arm due to excessive shoulder pain. This pain extends to the right upper arm. Stiffness in the neck may also occur along with shoulder pain. The pain tends to get worse during night time or when turning in bed.

2. Ferrum Met – For Shoulder Pain on Left Side

Ferrum Met is a medicine indicated for treating shoulder pain on the left side. This medicine is recommended for people who experience worsening of pain due to motion and are unable to raise their arm.
Ferrum Met is used when the nature of shoulder pain is tearing, drawing or boring in nature. The pain from the shoulder may shoot down the arm. Application of warm compress over the shoulder helps relieve the pain. Other symptoms indicating the need for this medicine include cracking in shoulder joint and aggravation of the pain at night.

3. Rhus Tox – For Shoulder Pain that gets Better with Motion

Rhus Tox is a well-indicated medicine for shoulder pain in cases where motion provides relief from pain, and the pain gets worse with rest. Along with pain, stiffness, and swelling, cracking in the shoulder joint is also present. Relief through massage and warm applications on the shoulder also indicate the need for this medicine. Rhus Tox is also helpful in cases where overstraining, overstressing or injury is the cause of shoulder pain.

4. Phytolacca Decandra – For Shoulder Pain that is Shifting in Nature

Phytolacca Decandra is a medicine used for treating shoulder pain that is shifting in nature. The guiding feature that indicates the use of this medicine is pain that keeps on wandering from one shoulder-joint to the other. The pain may be shooting or electric shock-like in nature. Worsening of pain in damp weather conditions also indicate the need for this medicine.

5. Colchicum Autumnale – For Shoulder Pain from Gout

Colchicum Autumnale is a medicine used for shoulder pain that arises from gout. The shoulder joint feels stiff and hot, coupled with pain which may be stitching in nature. This medicine works well for people who complain of shoulder pain that worsens on touch; where slight touching of the shoulder results in unbearable pain.

6. Bryonia Alba – For Shoulder Pain Worse with Motion

Bryonia Alba is a medicine used for shoulder pain that gets worse with the slightest motion. The pain may also get worse with deep breathing. The shoulder can also appear shiny-red and swollen. The pain from the shoulder extends down the arm.
This medicine works in cases where resting helps ease the pain.

7. Ruta Graveolens – For Shoulder Pain due to Inflamed Tendons

Ruta Graveolens is a medicine indicated for shoulder pain due to inflamed tendons. Shoulder pain that occurs due to overstretching or injury of the shoulder tendons is also treatable with this medicine. It is used in cases where the shoulder is sore, bruised, and hanging the arms down worsens the pain. Ruta Graveolens helps reduce shoulder pain as well as the inflammation of tendons.
