Muscle Strain and Homeopathy
A pulled muscle can be a result from overstretching, injury, improper use or even from using the muscle when you’re tired! A pulled muscle can occur in any part of your body. The most common areas are your shoulders, neck, hamstring, biceps or back.
Here are a handful of great homeopathic remedies to consider if you have pulled a muscle.
Arnica: this is the first remedy to consider for a strain or overused muscle
Bryonia: for pain in muscles even with the tiniest movement. The patient needs to remain perfectly still as to avoid pain.
Ledum: where there is swelling. Area feels cold. Better cold applications.
Rhus-tox: the patient has a stiff and painful part and feels better with gentle motion. Better heat. Worse continued motion. Restless. Affected area feels hot.
Ruta: area is hot to the touch; especially useful for ligament damage. Good for injuries caused from overexertion. Motion does not bring nay relief.
