Homeopathy's #1 for minor stiffness in joints

Rhus tox -  Specializes in joints that stiffen as you sit still, hurt on first movement - like getting up, and feel better as you move about. For its lubricating action, Rhus is known as the 'rusty gate' remedy. Rhus can be ideal this time of year because it helps joints that ache more in cold or stormy weather.

Arnica - Homeopathy's #1 first aid remedy helps the body reduce symptoms of swelling, pain and bruising due to injuries and overexertion whether joints, muscles or skin are affected. The key is ASAP! Granted, symptoms left over from old injuries will often benefit from Arnica as well.

Homeopathy's #1 for sprains

Ruta grav - Lends strength and healing to symptoms following sprains, strains and overexertion including minor pain and stiffness in joints– necks and backs included. Has a great knack for helping joints weakened or aggravated by repeat injuries such as tennis elbow or golfers knee. Old joint injuries can enjoy, Ruta's TLC, too. If you need more convincing, Ruta best suits restless, sore, achy, 'as if bruised' pains that prefer warm applications.

Bryonia alb - Offers much needed relief to joints with minor 'puffy' swelling, redness and pain. Bryonia is for joints that do not want to move one iota. If the flu is the cause instead of strain, Bryonia can be very soothing. Stitching pains in neck and small of back are asking for it, too.

Are lower temperatures aggravating your stiff joints?

Cooler weather tends to stiffen joints and old injuries, increasing inflammation and pain.

Various surveys and studies suggest that more than 30% of adults in the US suffer from joint pain, especially in the knees, hips, fingers and shoulders. As this is generally the older 30% of the population, almost everyone is likely to face joint pain to some degree as joints and past joint injuries age.

Homeopathy for Stiff Joints and Joint Pain

A well chosen homeopathic remedy can make a healing, soothing difference. As positive anecdotal evidence continues to pile up, more research is being conducted to reveal the effectiveness of homeopathy.

As homeopathy works with the body to heal itself and the right stimulus must be found for each individual, current methods of standardized testing usually yield inconsistent results at best. But the industry is working to find an acceptable testing model that can allow for the variance in application.

Dr. Asa Hershoff’s Knee Recipe

'A general regimen for the knee - even the most stubborn knee problems– is the following: Ruta 6 morning and night, with the tissue salts, Calc fluor 6x, Silica 6x and Calc phos 6x, taken together, three times daily (apart from the Ruta). After one month, the Ruta can be increased to the 12c/[30x] strength, twice daily. Later, Ruta 30c can be used once daily... [These] remedies for the knee reduce irritation, redness, swelling and pain, accelerating the healing of injured joint structures.'
–-adapted from Asa Hershoff’s book: Homeopathic Remedies

To a similar regimen, Thaddeus Jacobs adds:

“Other remedies to consider include Bryonia, for severe pain with slightest movement, and Ledum, which is beneficial for dark bruising that is unresponsive to Arnica. Ledum is well suited when injuries feel cold to touch and are alleviated by cold applications.”
