    I have a condition called Accessory Navicular. I had this pain occur before less than 20 years ago. It is located on the inner side of ankle above the arch. I believe it’s an area where there is an extra bone. There is a tibialis posterior tendon at this location. It hurts to walk with no shoes, it hurts when I wear boots, it hurts when I first put pressure on it in the morning. I also hear a clicking noise. Pain started with working to many hours. Will you suggest a remedy please

  2. Debasmita says:

    Hello Dr.Sharma…my 10yr old son has been complaining of an ankle pain for quite sometime now. I have been administering arnica ointment along with bryonia 30 and rhus tox30 and it has helped but not taken care of it completely. I was diagnosed with rheumatism as a child(not severe) and had similar pain as a child, hence used those medicines. He doesn’t remember injuring that area in the past. If you can suggest some medicines, i’ll be very grateful.


  3. Hi Dr. Sharma,

    In August I rolled my ankle and it resulted in a 3rd degree sprain, anterior tibilias strain and a bone bruise. I was recently cleared to start slowing walking again. Last week I stepped on my dogs toy in the middle of the night and tweaked my ankle again. I’m back wearing my brace and/or boot to help with the pain.
    Is there anything holistically I can do to help heal this faster other then using Arinca gel?

  7. I have had many sprained ankles. Couple real bad ones on my left ankle. I work hard and typically walk through the pain to keep the blood flowing through the joint and muscles. I have recently had issue with my left foot. I believe my body is trying to heal the last really bad one from 4 years ago and I have not ben working very hard. however, the pain starts from the moment I wake up, and when walking my dog, it goes away and then when I stop it starts up again. I have gone to two different podiatrists with no luck so I started looking into my trigger point therapy books aong with taking homeopathic. and still to no avail have I concurred this ailment. I read in your post about Aranea Diadema and just started taking it. I have taken Calc Flour for a small bone spur as well as Rhus Tox for worsening pain by rest and relief by walking and arnica for the pain and ligament issues. I just wanted to say thank you for your website and your insight in this situation. I have a degree in Health Science and have studied Homeopathy but it is nice to have others to validate and give other options.
