HOMOEOPATHY FOR BACKACHE
Back pain is a leading cause of doctor visits and absences from work. Back pain that lasts longer than three months (chronic pain) is less common than back pain that lasts less than six weeks (acute pain), which can be brought on by a fall or heavy lifting.
**Causes–**Back pain frequently arises without a clear-cut reason that your physician can determine through a test or imaging examination.
Muscle or ligament strain.If you’re in poor physical condition, constant strain on your back may result in painful muscle spasms, repeated heavy lifting, or a sudden awkward movement may irritate back muscles and spinal ligaments.
Bulging or ruptured disks.However, you can have a bulging or ruptured disk without having back pain. Disk disease is frequently discovered incidentally when you undergo spine X-rays for some other reason. Disks serve as cushions between the bones (vertebrae) in your spine. The soft material inside a disk can bulge or rupture and press on a nerve.
Arthritis.Osteoarthritis can affect the lower back, and in some cases, arthritis in the spine can result in spinal stenosis, a condition in which the space around the spinal cord narrows.
Skeletal irregularities.If your spine curves abnormally, such as with scoliosis, which causes your spine to curve to the side, back pain may also result, but usually only if the scoliosis is severe.
Osteoporosis.If your bones become porous and brittle, the vertebrae in your spine may experience compression fractures.
The majority of people experience back pain occasionally.
SymptomsBack pain may manifest as any of the following symptoms:
· Muscle ache
· Shooting or stabbing pain
The pain in your leg is radiating.
A back that isn’t as flexible or mobile as it should be
Risk factorsAlthough the cause of back pain has not yet been determined, there are some factors that may increase your risk of experiencing it, including those listed below:
Age.As you age, especially after the age of 30 or 40, back pain becomes more prevalent.
Lack of exercise.Back pain may be caused by unused, weak back muscles.
Excess weight.Overweight carrying strains your back further.
Diseases.Back pain can be exacerbated by some forms of cancer and arthritis.
Improper lifting.Back pain may result from relying on your back rather than your legs.
Psychological conditions.Back pain seems to be more common in people who are prone to depression and anxiety.
Smoking.As a result, your body might not be able to provide enough nutrition to your back’s disks.
Several of the best treatments for backaches are listed below as homoeopathic medications that are both safe and effective.
One of the best homoeopathic treatments for both acute and chronic back pain is rhus tox, which is prescribed when the pain is worst in the morning upon waking.
KALI CARBONICUM 30–Kali carb is another well-known treatment for backaches, which are most common in pregnant women and after childbirth, affect the lower back and extend down into the backs of the legs, are worse in the morning, and require the patient to rest after short bouts of walking.
BRYONIA ALBA 30When back pain worsens with even the smallest motion and improves with rest, pressure, or lying down on something hard, bryonia is a recommended treatment option.
AESCULUS HIPOCASTANUM 30–Aesculus Hipocastinum is a useful treatment for lower back pain brought on by piles and constipation, as well as for backaches brought on by strenuous work. Backaches brought on by strenuous work are so painful that the patient needs to use Aesculus only when they are able to stand up straight.
After injuries, sprains, and overexertion, the back can become extremely sore and lame, and it can feel as though it has been beaten with sticks.
COBALTUM 30-When the lower back and sacrum are both painful, with the lower back pain radiating down the legs and feet, and the pain is worse when sitting and better when standing or lying down, cobaltum is prescribed.
COLOCYNTHIS 30One of the best homeopathic treatments for back pain caused by lumbar spondylosis is colocynthis. The pain may be cramp-like, shooting, drawing, or tearing in nature. Lying on the left side also helps to relieve the pain. In some cases, applying heat to the leg helps.
With symptoms like leg numbness and back pain that radiates down the legs, **GNAPHALIUM POLYCEPHALUM 30–**Gnaphalium Polycephalum is one of the homeopathic medicines that is most frequently recommended for backaches.
HYPERICUM PERFORIATUM 30-When nerve involvement occurs in back pain, such as when a disc or bony spur impinges on a nerve and causes pain to radiate to the lower limbs, hypericum perf. is prescribed. Hypericum per. can relieve both the pain and the muscle spasm. Violent pain and the inability to walk or stoop are present after a fall on the coccyx.
MAGNESIUM PHOS 30–Magnesium phos is another helpful treatment for lower back pain that radiates down the right leg.
BERBERIS VULGARIS QBack pain from kidney stones and urinary problems, which radiates pain and numbness in all directions, can be treated with Berberis vulgaris. Back pain from menstruation can also be treated with Berberis vulgaris.
CIMCIFUGA RACEMOSA 30Cimcifuga racemosa is effective for back pain brought on by uterine issues. The spine is extremely sensitive, especially the upper part. There is stiffness and contraction in the neck and back. There is pain in the lumbar region, running down the thighs, through the hips, and a crick.
Back pain in the bed when lying down. Must sit up or turn side. Pain is worse in the winter. **NUX VOMICA 30-**Nux vomica is one of the effective homoeopathic medicines for lumbar pain due to lifting. It commonly affects people who lead sedentary lives, live modern lifestyles with little physical activity and excessive mental stress.
PHOSPHORUS 30-Phosphorus is prescribed for pain that is accompanied by a burning sensation in the spine, a feeling that the back might give way from the pain, and weakness in the back.
SILICEA 30When degenerative changes in the bones occur, whether they be osteoarthritic and forming bony spurs or when they affect the discs, Silicea is one of the most effective treatments for back pain. Any exposure to cold air can exacerbate the pain, which is relieved by warmth and warm weather.
OVA TOSTA 3XBack pain with leucorrhoea is treated with ova tosta because it causes a sensation similar to that of the spine being wired or tied together with a string.
ANTIMONIUM TART. 30Due to fatigue, particularly in the lower back, antimonium tart is an effective treatment.
STAPHYSAGRIA 30– Staphysagria is recommended for back pain that worsens in the morning after rising, occurs after sexual excesses, or when anger is present.
RUTA GRAVEOLENS 30When back pain results from sudden straining of the back muscles or ligaments, such as when lifting heavy objects or reaching too far for something, ruta graveolens is prescribed.
