Joint pains are so common today that five out of ten people complain about it. People who fail to treat joint pains are at a risk of permanent loss of mobility. What starts as pain, becomes swelling and stiffnesg movement of joints. The reasons for joint pains range from lifestyle issues like obesity, to the diet and pathological conditions.
Repetitive use of worn joints irritates and inflames the cartilage, causing pain and swelling. Loss of the cartilage cushion causes friction between the bones, which in turn, leads to pain and limits joint mobility. Inflammation of the cartilage can stimulate new bone outgrowths to form around the joints. Inflammation and thickening of the synovial membranes (the sac holding the fluid that lubricates the joints) causes irreversible damage to the joint capsule.
While it is commonly believed that joint replacement is the only treatment for weak joints, homoeopathic treatment can be very effective if the intervention is done in the initial stages.
That is, when too much cartilage is not lost.
At Star Homeopathy, constitutional medicines are prescribed according to the patients’ mental and physical make up. These constitutional medicines improve bone, cartilage strength, reduce pain and increase vascularity of the joint and increase immunity.
