Top 6 Homeopathic Medicines For Joint Pain After Injury

Joint pain is a very common complaint a clinical practitioner comes across in patients. A joint is a structure in the body where two or more bones connect with each other. The other components of the joints besides the bones include – tendons, ligaments, cartilage and synovial fluid. Tendons are the fibrous connective tissue that connects the muscles to the bones. Ligaments are the tissue bands that connect bones to the other bones for joint formation. The cartilage of the joint refers to smooth, flexible tissue that covers the ends of the bones where they meet to form the joint. Synovial fluid is the lubricating fluid in the joint that functions to reduce the friction in the structures of the synovial joints when joint movement tatakeske place.

Joint pain can occur from various causes and in some cases, joint pain can follow an injury to the joint along with joint inflammation. Injury to a joint can occur from several reasons such as a fall on the joint, injury when playing some sports or a car accident. Injury to a joint may result in breaking of the bone at the joints (fracture), dislocation of the joint means pushing or separation of the bones of the joints out of its normal position or a sprain. Sprain refers to twisting, overstretching or tearing of the ligaments and the main location of the sprain is ankle. Joint injury may also occur from overuse injuries that occur from repetitive motion of the joint, like in tendinitis (inflammation of the tendons). Joint inflammation developing after an injury is known as post-traumatic arthritis. This can be short-term (acute) or can become a long-term (chronic) problem. Varying from case to case, there may occur other signs and symptoms as well other than joint pain like swollen joint, stiff joint, joint tenderness (sensitive and painful to touch), redness of the joints, heat in the joints, limited range of joint movement, difficulty in moving the joint, trouble bearing weight on the affected joint and weakness of the joint.
