BoooBooo : Remedies For Bursitis Or House Maid's Knee

Bursitis is painful inflammation of a bursa (a fluid-filled sac that cushions a body site that is subject to pressure and friction). It is most often seen in the shoulder, but is also common in elbows, knees, hips, heels, and other areas. The cause of bursitis is often overuse, but injury or infection may also be involved. Homeopathic remedies often help to ease discomfort.

Arnica montana: This remedy is especially useful when bursitis is related to traumatic injury or strain. The affected area feels bruised and sore, and the person tries to avoid being touched, because of pain.

Belladonna: Bursitis with a sensation of heat and throbbing, along with intense discomfort caused by jarring and touch, suggests a need for this remedy. The area often is red and swollen, and the overlying skin feels hot.

Bryonia: When bursitis pain has a stitching or tearing quality and is worse from even the slightest motion, this remedy is a likely choice. The affected area is hot and swollen, feeling worse from warmth.

Ferrum phosphoricum: Inflammation, especially in the right shoulder—with pain that extends to the wrist, or sometimes to the neck—may be soothed by this remedy. Gentle motion and cool applications often bring relief. The person’s face may be flushed and pinkish.

Kalmia latifolia: Pain that starts in a higher joint (especially the hip or shoulder), and shoots or travels downward, suggests a need for this remedy. Right shoulder bursitis is common and extends to the elbow, wrist, or hand. Pain and inflammation may come on suddenly, and often shift around. Discomfort is worse from motion, worse at night, and has a neuralgic character.

Rhus toxicodendron: This remedy is helpful to those who experience stiffness and pain on initial movement, gradually improving as motion continues—although too much motion can also aggravate the pain. Pain is often worse during sleep and on waking in the morning. Cold, damp weather can increase the problems, and warm applications and baths bring relief.

Ruta graveolens: If bursitis is acute—with swelling, great stiffness, and aching pain—this remedy may be indicated. Problems can be aggravated by stretching, and the person often feels fatigued or weak. Cold and dampness make things worse, and lying down to rest may help. This remedy is often useful for bursitis after injuries.

Sanguinaria: This remedy is often indicated for bursitis in the shoulder—especially the right shoulder. Raising the arm is difficult, and pain can extend down the arm if the shoulder is moved. Discomfort may be worse at night in bed, from lying on the affected part, and also when turning over. Flushing of the face and a tendency toward allergies or migraines are often seen in people who need Sanguinaria.

Sulphur: This remedy may be indicated for bursitis—especially on the left side—with inflammation and burning pain. Symptoms will be aggravated by warmth and bathing. A person needing Sulphur often has a slouching posture and feels worse from standing up for extended lengths of time.

I just don't understand...

When people take so much trouble to copy and paste large material why don't they just copy the url also from the address bar and paste that too?

It just takes a few seconds more.

Dear Friend,

Why does the URL matter so much. The content is there so are the credits.

Credit to the writer dosn't mean anything.

The reason for insisting for the original url is to acknowledge their contribution in compiling the material.

There are copyright provisions which are to be folllowed on the www. too.

Why plagiarism is bad?

Plagiarism is when you copy someone else's written work, word for word and take the credit for the work. It's a way of cheating yourself of the knowledge (looking it up/research) and the challenge of putting it in your own words. It is also a form of theft and is illegal.

Note that if you reword slightly that, too, is plagiarism. Your written work must be in your own words. All quotations must be properly acknowledged.

Plagiarism is bad because it is dishonest and a form of theft. What's more students who plagiarize don't learn from it. The real challenge of 'looking things up' is to evaluate and synthesize ideas from two or, better still, several sources. Usually, the ability to do that shows an understanding of the issues, shows that the student has got to grips with the topic and has really tried to do the assignment.



Sometimes for the sake of convenience we do quote from other sources. Also when we can't word it it any better.

In such cases it is a must a to give the original source.
