Top 10 Homeopathic Remedies for Joint Pains

homeopathic remedies for joint painsIn the age of diagnosis where every illness gets slotted into a diagnosis, some set of symptoms just go undiagnosed. Most of the pains in joints have some diagnosis or the other, but quite a few tend to go undiagnosed. This is where homeopathy has a big role to play; homeopathic remedies for joint pains work on a symptom-based system of medicine and the prescription does not get affected by the scientific diagnosis. In this article, I am trying to cover all aspects of joint pains according to their symptoms and their indicated remedies.

Homeopathic Remedies for Joint Pains

Rhus Tox is a great remedy for joint pains. I would rank it the number one homeopathic remedy for joint pains. Its indication for use is – the joint pains are worse after rest and the pains get slowly better after walking or moving around. Although there are a number of remedies for joint pains that cover this symptom no other medicine does it better than Rhus Tox.

I would rank Bryonia Alba as number two homeopathic remedy for joint pains. This medicine is more indicated when the pains are aggravated by motion and are relieved by rest. This is quite typical of osteoarthritis pains where the articular surface of joints have got eroded and are inflamed. Bryonia is also used when there is inflammation around the joints causing red hot swelling. Remember Bryonia is to be used when the joint pains get worse from least motion, complete rest brings relief to pains.

Third great homeopathic remedy for joint pains is Ledum Pal; this is indicated mainly in gout and is used more for pains in small joints when they are swollen hot and painful.

Causticum will rank fourth in my list. It is indicated whenever there are severe tearing pains in limbs which is relieved by warmth, Cold increases all pains.

Arnica Montana stands fifth in the list with lameness and soreness all over the body as the key feature for it to be used as a homeopathic remedy for Joint pains. Arnica is indicated when there is extreme pain all over the body and every joint hurts. The whole body feels bruised and sore; as if it had been beaten with sticks. Arnica is also a great homeopathic remedy when the pain in joints is a result of a fall or injury.

Actea Spicata is one the great homeopathic remedies for joint pains when the joints of the hands are affected. This medicine is really very useful when the wrist joint is involved. The main indications for the use of this medicine for joint pains are – Rheumatic pain in small joints of hands and wrist ; Wrist is swollen hot and and swell after least exertion or movement /usage of hand. This medicine ranks sixth on my list for general pains but first on the list for wrist and hand pains. It is an excellent remedy for pain in finger joints in Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Homeopathic medicine Chinum Sulph is the most indicated medicine when there is a sudden onset of  Acute Articular Rheumatism – whenever there is a sudden onset of severe joint pains all over the body in all articular joints. This situation is seen in sudden onset of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Chinum Sulph  usage in this situation draws no parallels.

Pulsatilla is a an excellent homeopathic remedy for pain in joints especially when they are Shifting in nature. The pains move from one joint the other. Another good medicine for Shifting joint pains is Phytolacca. This is indicated when there is shifting of joint pains and the shifting is so sudden the patient feels it like electric shocks.

Colchicum is a great homeopathic remedy for severe pains in Rheumatoid Arthritis and should be used with great care

  14. david higgins says:

    I had a ankle injury 15 years ago, worked on my feet wearing a brace for all the subsequent years, which caused the ankle to become weaker, and stiffer. Then I came down with gout, but i did not know it. The gout affects the ankle. I think there is some calcification in the ankle, because it pops as it is flexed under weight. Can you please recommend a homeopathic treatment for the ankle. Thanks
