Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is caused by tendonitis or swelling around the tendons on the outside edge of the elbow. It is called tennis elbow because it’s caused by an injury to elbow from movements used in racket games like tennis. As a result, often people suffering from lateral epicondylitis have it from playing tennis. However anyone can suffer from tennis elbow either from an injury to the outer elbow or from overuse of the arm and wrist. Some people have elbow pain as a result of arthritis (osteoarthritis). Arthritis is a different condition to tennis elbow but may make it more likely you suffer from tennis elbow. Tennis elbow is painful and often the tissues around the outer elbow become tender to touch and inflexible. The problem is mainly located at the bony part at the outer edge of your arm – called the lateral epicondyle. However it can also refer pain further up or down your arm. Tennis elbow is not the same as golfers elbow (medial epicondylitis.) Both have similar symptoms but golfers elbow is on the medial elbow and tennis elbow is on the outer elbow.
according to Wikepedia-‘-Although anti-inflammatories are a commonly prescribed treatment for tennis elbow, the evidence for their effect is usually anecdotal with only limited studies showing a benefit.Evidence is poor for an improvement from injections of any type, be it corticosteroids, botulinum toxin, prolotherapy or other substances.[32] Corticosteroid injection may be effective in the short term’
So ,we find that here allopathic medicines are not very mach effective in this case pain killers can subside the case but they dont cure it .
In Homoeopathy we have a no of patients being treated with the symptoms of tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis /medial epicondylitis(Golfer’s elbow)
They come after taking painkillers /sometimes painful corticosteroid injections without any permanent releif n sometimes recurrence of pain off n on or smtimes with pain n inflammation of the arm /forearm after taking the injections —
as it is the case related to tendons ,ligaments old injuries calcifications of old injuries –Ruta Calc Flour Acid Flour Calc phos may recover the case .
According to symptoms-first of all, movement increases the pain , pain radiating from one point to whole arm ,patient fears to touch the arm due to pain irritability (mental symptom) all become the guiding symptoms to select the medicine -based on totality of symptoms; n likewise medicines suchas Bryonia Rhustox Arnica Kalibich..Chamomilla or any medicine that suits according to symptoms might be selected n given will improve n finally recover the case ,
referring this case of tennis elbow is just to prove that it works ;THE HOMOEOPATHY works ; it is not any thing like jhaad foonk /tona totaka/ placebo effect –it is a well established science –that works on principles if you know the principles, if you follow the principles, if you choose according to symptoms not by the name of disease .It is an art -to take the symptoms, it is an art to prescribe the selected medicines in proper potency- according to the patient ;which is also something very important while treating a patient n a very peculiar job based on the physician’s experience .We will discuss it later on -have a nice day .

World Health Organisation Traditional Medicine Strategy 2014-23 states that universal health coverage (UHC) is only possible by integrating Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) services that  includes Homeopathy into the health care delivery. The purpose is to ensure that every individual has access to promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services of effective quality at an affordable cost to achieve the “highest attainable standard of health” outlined in WHO’s Constitution and in the concept of Health for All.

Presently, Homoeopathy is practiced in more than 80 countries in different form, officially recognized and system of medical specialty in Central and South America (Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico), Asia (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh etc.) and Europe (Germany, France, Belgium, Bulgaria, Hungry, Romania, Russia, United Kingdom etc.), Homoeopathy in India is recognized and integrated in the  National  health care delivery system. Government of India has established Ministry to AYUSH to give focused attention for the growth and development of CAM/TM. Thus India has a pluralistic health care to meet the ever-growing demand in health sector.

Homoeopathic fraternity worldwide celebrate the birth anniversary of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German Physician, who discovered the principles of Homeopathy two centuries ago and developed it as a gentle healing system of medicine, as the  World Homoeopathic Day. During this day, the fraternity organizes various symposia, road shows, medical camps and conferences and memorial events to popularize the strength of Homoeopathy.

A case of sciatica treated in 2015

One of my relatives,Mr.KC Tiwari, had been treated for severe pain in his right leg with numbness years before, by allopathy along with traction and physiotherapy.
One day in mid of 2015 he called me to consult as the pain was there again ,not the same way but now pain was in right leg ,starting from calves and going upwards as soon as he started walking. and after a while the pain made it impossible to walk .He had to stop ,take a rest ,then only he could go further .
he had consulted an allopath and started physiotherapy again but pain was in constant progress ,affecting his day to day life .He was advised for traction again .At this stage he consulted me .I advised him to take the homoeopathic medicine before going through the traction process as I find surgery and traction the last options to follow ,although it becomes neccessary sometimes.
The symptoms for prescription were
1–increasing pain with motion ,relieved by rest .
2–Stiffness in legs as if some thing tight would break
I prescribed Causticum 1M-single dose
Ruta-1M Once a week
and Bryonia 30 tds
and told him to inform after a week .A slight but unsatisfactory response was there but response was there so continuing Ruta 1M wk ly i raised the power of Bryonia to 1M. I told him to report every 15 days,which he thankfully did and which most of others forget conveniently(specially frds n relatives)–his pain was minimized and now he could walk easily but sometimes a sudden wave of pain comes and goes as he reported me when I met him after a month
Pain that comes suddenly and goes suddenly is a keynote symptom for Belladona which was given in 1M single dose along with Bryonia 10M single dose .Since then no reporting of pain i.e.from September15 till today .
