Your musculoskeletal system is constructed of bones, muscles, and joints. The bones attach to each other at a joint, where strong tissues called tendons and ligaments help connect the bones. On the ends of each bone is a lining of smooth, protective cartilage and soft tissues (synovial membranes) that produce a liquid (synovial fluid). The cartilage and synovial membranes cushion and lubricate your bones so that they will not rub against each other. Joints are beautifully designed to let you move your body and support your weight as you go through life. But injury, some systemic diseases, age, and drug abuse make your cartilage deteriorate. The protective membranes and fluids in your joints begin to dry up. These changes may allow the bones to rub against each other painfully, causing joint pain. Common joint complaints that we come across in our practise are Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a form of arthritis that causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in your joints. It can affect any joint but is common in the wrist and fingers. More women than men get rheumatoid arthritis. It often starts between ages 25 and 55. You mighthave the disease for only a short time, or symptoms might come and go. The severe form can last a lifetime. Rheumatoid arthritis can affect body parts besides joints, such as your eyes, mouth, and lungs. RA is an autoimmune disease, which means the arthritis results from your immune system attacking your body’s own tissues.

At Nanas Homoe Medical Center, we provide comprehensive bone and joint care using homeopathic remedies. Homeopathy is a safe, natural and effective way to treat bone and joint-related conditions, without any side effects.

Some common bone and joint conditions that we treat include:

  • Arthritis: Arthritis is a term that describes inflammation of the joints. There are many different types of arthritis, but the most common are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). OA is a degenerative condition that typically affects older adults, while RA is an autoimmune disorder that can affect individuals of any age. Symptoms of arthritis can include joint pain, stiffness, and swelling, as well as decreased range of motion and flexibility. In some cases, arthritis can cause permanent joint damage and disability. Treatment for arthritis typically involves pain management, physical therapy, and medication to reduce inflammation. In homoeopathy we have very effective symptomatic treatment. Along with medication lifestyle modifications, such as maintaining a healthy weight and staying active, can also help relieve symptoms of arthritis.
  • Osteoarthritis:¬†Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It causes pain, swelling, and reduced motion in your joints. It can occur in any joint, but usually it affects your hands, knees, hips, or spine. Osteoarthritis breaks down the cartilage in your joints. Cartilage is the slippery tissue that covers the ends of bones in a joint. Healthy cartilage absorbs the shock of movement. When you lose cartilage, your bones rub together. Over time, this rubbing can permanently damage the joint. Factors that may cause osteoarthritis include obesity, old age, and injury to the joints.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disorder that primarily affects the joints, causing pain, stiffness, swelling, and limited mobility. In autoimmune disorders, the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks its own tissues, in the case of RA, the lining of the joints. Over time, it can lead to joint destruction, deformity, and disability. RA usually affects the smaller joints such as the hands, feet, and wrists, but can also affect larger joints. Symptoms can vary from person to person but usually include joint pain, morning stiffness lasting more than an hour, fatigue, and a general feeling of malaise. RA is more common in women than men and usually develops between the ages of 30-50 years old but can occur at any age. The cause of RA is unknown, but genetics, environmental factors, and hormonal imbalances may all play a role. Homoeopathic treatment can help to manage symptoms and slow down the progression of the disease and can give very effective symptomatic relief. Along with homoeopathic medicine exercise, physical therapy, and occupational therapy can also help to improve joint function and mobility.
  • Gout: Gout is a type of arthritis that occurs when uric acid crystals accumulate in joints and cause inflammation and pain. Uric acid is a waste product that is normally filtered out of the blood by the kidneys, but in some cases, the body produces too much uric acid or doesn’t eliminate it effectively. Gout typically affects the big toe, but can also affect other joints such as the ankles, knees, wrists, and fingers. Symptoms of gout include sudden, intense pain, swelling, redness, and heat in the affected joint. Gout is more common in men than women and is often associated with a diet high in purines (found in red meat, seafood, and other foods) and alcohol consumption. Treatment for gout may include medications to reduce pain and inflammation, lifestyle modifications such as weight loss and dietary changes, and medications to lower uric acid levels.
  • Osteoporosis or Vitamin D Deficiency: Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones become weak and brittle, increasing the risk of fractures. Vitamin D plays a crucial role in bone health as it helps the body absorb calcium, which is essential for building and maintaining strong bones. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to a decrease in bone density and an increased risk of osteoporosis. Vitamin D deficiency is very common and can be caused by factors such as inadequate sun exposure, a diet low in vitamin D, or a medical condition that affects absorption of the vitamin. A blood test can check vitamin D levels. To prevent osteoporosis and vitamin D deficiency, it is important to maintain an adequate intake of vitamin D through diet and supplements, getting regular exposure to sunlight, and engaging in weight-bearing exercise. Foods high in vitamin D include fatty fish such as salmon, cheese, egg yolk, and fortified foods such as milk and cereal.
  • Back pain or lumbago: Lumbago, also known as lower back pain, is a common condition characterized by pain and discomfort in the lower back region. The pain may be mild to severe and can be either acute or chronic. It may also be accompanied by other symptoms such as stiffness, weakness or numbness.
    Common causes of lumbago include poor posture, muscle strain, herniated disc, arthritis, spinal stenosis, and osteoporosis. Treatment options for lumbago include pain medication, physical therapy, chiropractic care, and in extreme cases, surgery.
    Preventive measures for lumbago include maintaining good posture, regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding heavy lifting or repetitive motions that can strain the lower back. It is important to consult a healthcare provider if symptoms persist or worsen.
  • Cervical spondylosis/neck pain: Cervical spondylitis, also known as cervical spondylosis or cervical osteoarthritis, is a condition that results from the degeneration of the vertebrae, discs, and joints in the neck, leading to pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders, and arms. It is common in older adults and can be caused by factors such as wear and tear, injury, and genetic factors. Symptoms may include neck pain, headaches, dizziness, numbness or tingling in the arms or hands, and difficulty in walking or maintaining balance. Treatment typically involves physical therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes, such as exercise and maintaining good posture. Severe cases may require surgery.
  • Chikungunya polyarthritis (joint pain):¬†Chronic inflammatory polyarthritis does occur following chikungunya infection. It involves large and small joints of the hands and feet and is erosive and deforming. It generally has rheumatoid factor negative. Anti-CCP antibodies will be positive in the majority. Synovial biopsy typically shows non-granulomatous chronic synovitis with infiltration with Lymphocytes and plasma cells

Our homeopathic approach to bone and joint care focuses on identifying and treating the underlying cause of the condition, rather than just addressing the symptoms. We provide personalized treatment plans tailored to the individual needs of our patients to ensure optimal results. In addition our center also provides complementary therapies, dietary advises and lifestyle modifications that can help in speeding up the recovery process.
