Frozen Shoulder (Shoulder Impingement/Periarthritis of the Shoulder)

I had righ shoulder impingement. It is now cured and I have 100% motion restored. Just when I was congratulating myself, I had left shoulder impingement which was more painful and prolonged than the first instance. Constant exercise has now restored full motion in the left shoulder but some pain still persists. I am a side sleeper and that worsens the situation. I often get up with a bad pain. I have said good bye to NSAIDs and all other pain killers. Do I have any hope in Homeopathy?

I must also mention here that I have a a family history of Spondylosys, alhough it is very mild in my case. I still have periods of stiff neck.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take Rhus Tox 200 twice a day for 3 days and see how that affects over a week.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Dr. Kadwa,

I have taken Rhus Tox-200 as ssuggested by you:

1. There is a perceptible change in the pain I experience -- it is more subdued and I could sleep better.

2. But this change is so slight that I do not know whether it due to the medicine or my imagination. But I would like to think it is because of the medicine. I have an open mind about Homeopathy and have seen others being cured convincingly. If this experience occurs over a period of time then I would be able to state more definitively.

3. What would you advise me to do now? Continue taking the medicine the way you have originally advised?

Thank you very much. I would this medicine to help me. Thanks again.

Dear Dr. Kadwa,

Observations after taking Nux Vomica:

1. Pain persists but it feels different. Cant say definitely, but the intensity of pain seems to be slightly muted.

Do I continue with the prescription?

rsdhar 5 years ago
Yes, please continue with the schedule given.

Please tell me how long I should continue this medicine. I have two questions of general nature. As you know, in alopathy there are two kinds of prescptions (generally): one, you take a medicine as and when you require (e.g. painkillers) and, two, course prescrptions, say antibiotics that you take for a fixed period of time. In homeopathy, do we take pills as and when required or are these fixed period prescriptions? I want know, specificially, whether rhux tox and nux vomica can be kept at home to be taken as and when the pain recurs.


PS: I have been sleeping well the last three days.

Homeopathy is prescribed on symptoms. The physician forms his own opinion on the totality of patient's symptoms while the patient interacts.
The physician addresses the patient's totality of symptoms with a single remedy or with a chain of remedies(as we have done here) or with a combination of remedies.
With the sufficient doses the remedies work on the system and do the healing.
In your case acute remedies are not needed during the course of treatment. Please avoid potato and similar other foods that have 'vata dosh'. You may discontinue remedies if you have substantial relief. The same remedies may be used on need in future.

Dr. Kadwa,

I thank you very much indeed. Your prescription has made a difference which I can "feel" but cannot "describe" correctly. I shall continue this medicine for one week more and post again. Thank, once again.

Dr. Kadwa,

This post is to thank you. Two observations: 1. I am sleeping better and 2. I wake up with less pain in the shoulder joint.

My course has come to an end. I know that you have left me further instructions, but I would benefit a lot if you could describe what I should do if my shoulder pain returns later. Thanks.

You should see whether your improvement holds without taking any medicine. If there is a significant relapse in your symptoms please repeat the Nux, Rhus Tox course.
