Musculoskeletal complaints improve with Homeopathy

There are millions of people throughout the world enduring musculoskeletal complaints which can
include rheumatic diseases. Many sufferers find that consulting with a complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM) practitioner helps in relieving their pain, and may also prevent further occurrences of their problem.

It is interesting to note, since one of the most frequently used CAM therapies is homeopathy, that 23 research studies have been carried out to determine the effect of homeopathy for patients suffering from rheumatic and musculoskeletal complaints, namely rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. These trials, which have included over 2,300 patients in total,
have shown positive results for homeopathy, over and above conventional treatment and placebos.

The studies mostly used patients who suffered from long-term complaints and were treated with homeopathic remedies for an average of four to five months. There was, within these studies, a 77% improvement in 400 rheumatic patients over the first month of treatment and reduced severity of pain in 87% after six months. In addition, after just three months of treatment,
85% of osteoarthritis sufferers found that they had reduced pain, stiffness and swelling of joints.

The multiple investigations also concluded that the safety of homeopathic treatment was greater than conventional treatment, where side-effects to the drugs prescribed are typical. It has been advised, with all these positive conclusions, that homeopathy should be considered a viable
therapeutic option for patients suffering from rheumatic and musculoskeletal complaints.
