The symptoms that usually accompany knee pain are swelling, stiffness, tenderness and heat in the knee joint. Homeopathic medicines for knee pain are very effective in managing knee pain of degenerative, traumatic as well as inflammatory origin.  homeopathic medicines for knee pain

Homeopathic Medicines for Knee Pain

Knee pain can be treated wonderfully well with medicines, which are natural and therefore, safe for use. Natural medicines are helpful in both acute and chronic knee pain. They are safe for use among all age groups, without any risk of toxicity. They help in relieving the pain in the knee and the accompanying symptoms such as swelling, tenderness and stiffness.

The recommended medicines for knee pain are Calcarea Carb, Rhus Tox, Colchicum, Ruta and Symphytum. Among these medicines, Calcarea Carb is recommended for knee pain from osteoarthritis and Rhus Tox is indicated for knee pain from rheumatoid arthritis. Colchicum has shown remarkable results in knee pain resulting from gout while Ruta and Symphytum are excellent medicines for knee pain from ligament and bone injury, respectively.

1. For Knee Pain due to Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of the joint. In osteoarthritis of the knee, cartilage of the knee joint undergoes degeneration as a result of which the joint space is reduced. The symptoms of knee osteoarthritis are pain, stiffness and cracking (sound) in knee joint. The main reasons behind osteoarthritis of the knee are advancing age, excess weight, injury and overuse of joint. Effective medicines for knee pain from osteoarthritis are Calcarea Carb, Ruta and Causticum. Calcarea Carb is best suited when the knee pain gets worse on rising from a seat and walking. Persons who need to be prescribed Calcarea Carb are usually overweight. Ruta is one of the most helpful medicines for knee pain when the pain worsens on climbing up and down the stairs. Pressure over the knee may provide momentary relief. Causticum is indicated when pain in the knee is accompanied by marked stiffness and cracking (sound) in knee joint.

2. For Knee Pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune inflammatory disease of the joints. It can affect any joint of the body. The main symptoms are stiffness, pain and swelling of joints. Useful medicines for knee pain from rheumatoid arthritis are Bryonia, Rhus Tox and Salicylic Acid. Bryonia is prescribed when the knee joint pain gets worse with the slightest movement. The knee will be swollen in most such cases. The pain and swelling get better with rest. Natural medicine Rhus Tox is one of the best medicines for knee pain with stiffness. The pain and stiffness of the knees get better with walking.  Rest worsens the symptoms. Salicylic Acid, on the other hand, is considered for acute arthritic knee pain. Where the knee is highly inflamed, painful and may be accompanied by high fever, Salicylic Acid is the most reliable of medicines for knee pain to take. The slightest touch or movement of the knee will worsen the pain in such instances.

3. For Knee Pain due to Injury

Knee injury is most common among sportspersons. The injury mainly includes tendon, ligament and bone injury. Top grade medicines for knee pain due to injury are Rhus Tox, Ruta and Symphytum. Rhus Tox and Ruta are very useful medicines for knee pain from ligament or tendon injury. These medicines help decrease pain and promote natural healing of the injured ligaments and tendons. Symphytum is prominently used for knee pain from fractured knee joint. Symphytum, commonly known as Knit Bone, helps promote the union of fractured bones and decreases knee pain arising from the fracture, making it one of the most reliable medicines for knee pain. It helps by promoting callus formation required to re-unite the bone.

4. For Knee Pain from Gout

Gout is a painful disease of the joint caused by deposit of uric acid crystals in the joints. It can affect any joint of the body, including the knee joint, and mainly begins from the big toe. The main symptoms of gout are intense pain and swelling of affected joints. Colchicum and Benzoic Acid are the noted medicines for knee pain from gout. Colchicum is well indicated when acute gouty pain in the knees appears with marked swelling and heat. The knee is very sensitive to touch and the slightest touch causes unbearable pain. Movement of the knee worsens the pain in such cases. Benzoic acid is considered in knee pain from gout when gouty nodes are formed over the knee joint. The person experiences pain and cracking sound in knee joint on movement. Tearing and stitching pain is felt in the knees along with swelling. The pain gets worse at night. Benzoic acid has proved the most effective medicines for knee pain in such cases and resulted in complete healing and cure.

5. For Knee Pain from Bursitis

Bursitis of knee is the inflammation of the bag-like cavity (the bursa) surrounding the knee joint that contains the synovial fluid. Trauma is the main factor leading to knee bursitis with major symptoms being pain, swelling, heat and tenderness of knee joints. The prominently indicated medicines for knee pain from bursitis are Apis Mellifica and Bryonia. Apis Mellifica offers much help when the main complaint is knee pain with marked swelling. The slightest touch and pressure over the knee worsen the pain. The pain is mostly stinging, burning in nature. Warmth worsens the pain. Bryonia is another one of the most wonderful medicines for knee pain from bursitis. It has shown great results when knee pain, accompanied by swelling, worsens from the smallest movement. Absolute rest brings relief from pain.

Can you tell me what homeopathic medicine I should take and cold or hot compresses? Please help! Thank you.

    Dr. Sharma,

    I have severe pain in my right knee joint and muscular pain below the knee. the soul of my foot seems papery. The pain worsens on lying down. Initially, when getting up the knee is stiff and painful but after some movement it gets better. I am 83 years old and active.

    I also experience sciatica pain in the right leg. My lower back also experiences a lot of pain after working in the kitchen – no help at this time.

    Could you suggest homeopathic medicines for these problems?

  15. Sharmila says:

    Dr Sharma, I’m getting a pain in my right knee (slightly swollen). This is not bone related nor it is constantly painful. This is a pain when I try to fold my right knee (slightly swollen), nothing on the left. I feel that the blood vessel behind the leg is constricted (circulation problem). This escalated during lockdown as I’m standing (becomes more when I stand) and working for 4-5 hours mostly without break. I have high cholesterol (mostly genetics). I’m not fat, try to exercise every morning (gets better after the exercise) and mostly eat healthy diet. The pain was there earlier as I had to stop my exercise for 3 months for my daughter’s board exam. I had Ruta-g 30 for a few weeks. No major change. Would like your opinion.


  16. SHEHERNAZ Gandhi says:

  28. Hi Dr. Sharma,

    My mom had total left knee replacement about 3 months ago and still has pain and swelling. She said sometimes she feels that the mechanism inside the knee is loose. Her therapist said if it was loose, she would not be able to walk without a cane. Also, she feels like little nerve sting in her knee. She is trying not to take the prescription drugs her doctor ordered but feels like she needs to at times when the pain is unbearable. She has been taking Arnica 1M and Hypericum 200 daily about 3 times alternating them. Is there something else she can take besides these or she should change them as these remedies do not seem to be helping her much? Thank you in advance for your help.

  29. Kishore Nayar says:

    Dear Dr. Sharma,

    Your above write-up was immensely helpful. I’ve for a long time been a user of Homeopathy for self and family. But there are times when a clean, clear write-up like yours is very rare to find on Internet.

    I found in your write-up the specific symptom of knee pain when climbing stairs mentioned by you, with the recommended remedy being Ruta / Ruta Grav. I intend starting with 4 TPD 4 pills of Ruta 30. Will observe the condition daily and peter down the frequency as & when I find 0(zero) pain when walking up stairs.

    Again, thank you. Very much appreciate a clear, concise write-up.

    With kind regards.
