A Significant Relief From Severe Osteoarthritic Pain Achieved In Short Timespan With Homeopathy
70-years-old Mr. Yadav (PIN L-12039) was brought to the clinic by his brother for the treatment of Osteoarthritis. He was suffering from pain in the knee joints from the last 5-6 years. He was brought to the clinic from a village, which was over 1000 km away from Mumbai. From the last one year, his pain was severe with swelling in the knee joints, particularly in the right knee more than the left one. He would complain of occasional stiffness while walking. He also suffered from a backache. He had to use a walking stick for support from the last 1 year. This had shattered his self-confidence and created a sense of dependency, as he was a man of strong will and had been independent all throughout his life. He had undergone treatments from various doctors and was marginally using the painkillers.
Mr. Yadav was a farmer and stayed with his family in a remote village. He was habituated to hard work and physical labor. The pain and stiffness had restricted his movements and affected his work. He was prescribed X-Ray of both the knee joints at Life Force which revealed very severe degenerative osteoarthritis.
Orthopedic surgeons had explained to him this condition was a progressive disorder, and, if the medicines did not help him, then he may have to go in for the knee replacement surgery. It was a clear case for knee replacement. However, it was beyond the patient's financial capacity to opt for it.
Dr. Shah examined the patient and prescribed research-based medicines for osteoarthritis along with Capsicum 200 C in varying doses.
Within 4 weeks of the treatment, Mr. Yadav reported having obtained a good pain relief. The swelling had minimized, and the pain had reduced by 40%.
The medicines were continued further. In the duration of 10 weeks, his knee pain was better by 60%. The stiffness was considerably less. He mentioned the relief from a backache to be better by 30%.
In 4 months, there was a significant improvement in his recovery from osteoarthritis. Mr. Yadav barely required the stick now. He was able to walk without support for most of the times.
His gratitude towards Dr. Shah could be hardly expressed in words. We could appreciate the overwhelming response in his eyes.
This case illustrates that homeopathy is quite effective in treating osteoarthritis in aged individuals and improving their quality of life significantly.
