Back Ache


Our Treatments




Back pain problems are too serious to ignore. Here's how Homoeopathy can help

THERE ARE two things in life which we cannot miss going through, a common cold and backache though the intensity and frequency may vary between individuals.

An unknown virus can always be blamed for the cold but as far as backache is concerned, it is probably evolution itself. One fine day homosapiens decided to start treading on two limbs, meanwhile transferring the crux of the body weight on the back, which has not been used to and made for.
The back is made up of five lumbar bones, shock absorber-like discs between them, spinal cord with nerves conducting impulses back and forth, small joints for support and muscles and ligaments which give power and provide support and stability.


The common cause of backache is degeneration of bones or osteoporosis. The discs between the bones could bulge out too impinging on the nerve fibres and cause pain. Lack of exercise and predominance of sedentary occupations of today's society has lead to weakening of the muscles and joints. Wrong posture at work for prolonged periods is another contributing feature. Infections like tuberculosis and trauma during injuries and accidents are the other causes.


Typically, patients complain of pain in the back at one spot or across on either sides, which could be as severe as to prevent them from bending, and turning in bed becomes an ordeal and twisting a limitation. There could be numbness of lower limbs too.

Due to compressive changes over the nerves, the pain could traverse all along the course of the lower limbs. Stiffness of the back is distressing too.

Homoeopathic medicine has good remedies to give immediate relief from pain, swelling and stiffness due to backache. It has remedies to allay further degeneration of the bones (osteoporosis), relieve the pressure changes of the disc on the nerve fibres.

The effects of trauma and injury also can be treated properly while giving strength to the muscles and ligaments.

Common remedies

Arnica relieves muscular soreness and pain while Cimcifuga restores normalcy by relieving the stiffness of the muscles of the neck and back. Phytolacca relieves the pressure of the disc on the nerve fibres and Rhus Tox gives strength to the ligaments. Calcarea Flour and Calcarea Carb are a couple of remedies which prevent further degeneration of the bones of the back and, thereby, rule out any complications.

Does Homoeopathy have any remedy for Cystic fibrosis?


Cystic fibrosis is a condition in which there is excessive production of phlegm by the mucosal surfaces of the lungs and gastro intestinal systems. Homoeopathy has remedies to reduce the production to a certain extent and reduce the incidence of infection and improve quality of life.
