Treatment of Osteoarthritis
Arnica 30: this is the ideal medicine for osteoarthritis following an injury to a joint. Apart from pain and stiffness, there is a sore, beaten-up feeling in the joint. Everything on which the affected joint lies, seems too hard. Joint-pains are worse from touch or any massage or heat. Resting the affected joint does not relieve pain at all.
Bryonia 30: this is suitable for joint-pain which gets worse from least motion or exertion but improves with absolute rest. Applying heat to the joint or lying on it helps a lot as compare to Arnica. Pressing, massaging or bandaging the joint also helps a lot in this case.
Calc phos 30: this is the medicine for osteoarthritis in lean and emaciated persons. Apart from pain and stiffness, there is a sensation of numbness and crawling in the affected joint. Symptoms are worse in damp, cold weather but better in hot and dry weather.
Causticum 30: this is suitable for chronic osteoarthritis with joint-deformities from contractures of muscles. Pain is worse in clear fine weather but lessens in the monsoon.
Rhus tox 30: this is the medicine mainly for osteoarthritis characterized by stiffness, pain and a feeling of soreness in the affected joint. Pain and stiffness are worse after rest or inactivity but gradually diminish on walking around. Joint-problems are worse in rainy weather but better by application of dry heat.
