The main reasons behind osteoarthritis of the knee are advancing age, excess weight, injury and overuse of joint. Effective Homeopathic 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 Homeopathic medicines for knee pain when the pain worsens on climbing up and down the stairs. Pressure over the knee may provide momentary relief. Homeopathic medicine Causticum is indicated when pain in the knee is accompanied by marked stiffness and cracking (sound) in knee joint.

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 Homeopathic 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 Homeopathic 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.

The main symptoms of gout are intense pain and swelling of affected joints. Colchicum and Benzoic Acid are the noted Homeopathic 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.

  14. Shobhana Rajendran says:

    I am 62 years old and have had left knee pain for 13 years. Also, the knee joint is misaligned. X-rays taken hen showed a bucket handled tear of the meniscus. It might have been caused by a fall several years before I started feeling any pain in the knee.
    A few years later, because I shifted a lot of weight onto the right leg, I started developing pain in that knee as well. My left knee used to get” locked” a lot but became better after I got acupressure treatment. But the pain persists, in both knees. It has led to reduced physical activity and therefore significant weight gain. I am also flat footed and that makes matters worse.
    Can you possibly suggest any homeopathic remedy to reduce pain and stiffness so that I can sit down and stand up without a huge effort and also climb stairs.
