Bursitis / Tennis Elbow

Does anyone have suggestions for bursitis/tennis elbow? I could not find my specifics in the Remedy Finder. What I get is pain in a spot on the outer side of my right elbow. Years ago, my MD told me it was from over extending my arm, as in what tennis players do. what works in the long run is immobilization which is not possible because I live and work on a farm. In the meantime I use a brace that limits how far I can extend my arm, but it is somewhat inconvenient, especially to people around me, for fear of getting poked by these metal hinges protruding out at the elbow if they get too close. Just thought maybe there would be a remedy that may help faster. Thanks.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Dear patient, you are in need of a single dose of Rhustoxidendron 1M. Take this remedy early in the morning and wait at least for two weeks for its positive results. I am sure you would get good responses for your ailment.

ok if due to injury -way back--when first started--then looking at arnica---if due to overuse as in daily routine chores and such ---immobilization betterment implies bryonia --but underlying suscepatibility to this will need be addressed also --in this case sulphur will be needed in treatment sooner or later...as is laying off the sweets and alcohol...got it?

start treatment by varying potencies of bryonia --single dose 12c see effect --none at all after 24 hours then single dose 30c none then 200c --if no reaction AT all--then single dose sulphur 30c ==no repetition wait 3 days--and back see if bryonia give effect---

keep us informed...if use rhus-t as first doc said--then dont bother with my suggestion--until done with his treatment---i wont mix methods..

if the above methods/remedies don't work, you can try symphytum 200c, single dose. repeat if neccesary and if there is still some pain left after this,(and the symph. doesn't give any further amel.) then use ruta 200c.

No one should apply/change many a medicine so frequently that might get either ineffective or cast it's adverse effects on the patient's physic. The human body must be kept away from such experiments.

Mr. John, thanks for supporting views.

Tennis elbow is usually considered to be a kind of tendinitis, so why isn't Ruta indicated here? ts, did your doctor say anything about tendinitis?

Yes dear Daisy, you are right! There is not much difference between Tennis elbow and tendinitis. Tendinitis means the inflammation of the tendons, therefore, Ruta Graveolens might be given in the cases of tendinitis, however, every remedy has its own symptoms or characteristics. I found Rhustoxicodendron more effective in such cases of tendinitis and tennis elbow. Better you collect your own experiences in this respect.
Dr Kumar last decade
For both problems it is again RUTA.

Yes Mr. Sajjad, if there is dull or tearing pain in bones of the arms and join of elbow (pain as from contusion in join elbow), Ruta will act well. The main role of a remedy depends upon its characteristics those must be tallied with case diagnosis.

Thank you for your explanation, Dr. Kumar. My own experience with tennis elbow/tendinitis is that it might not hurt at first to bend the arm, but if I used it much then it started to hurt. Which is the opposite of what I would expect for Rhus Tox. But I have been fortunate not to have had a tendinitis problem since I started using homeopathy, so I don't know what would work for me. ts hasn't explained what the pain or motion is like for him. Wouldn't that be relevant?

I want to thank Dr. Kumar for his suggestion regarding tennis elbow. I had been putting up with it for about 3 months, not knowing what it was until I recently went to the chiropractor. The injury came from lifting too many heavy containers in a hurry, so I didn't suspect tennis elbow. Then I finally thought of trying homeopathics and found this website and Dr. Kumar's suggestion to take Rhus Tox. I immediately took a does of Rhus Tox and the results were AMAZING!! I went back to the chiropractor yesterday (about a week after using Rhus Tox) and she said my arm was about 90% improved! The chiropractic treatment was helpful (and especially great for the tightness in my shoulders and neck - possibly an effect of the arm problem), but I feel the significant improvemnet seen so quickly was a result of taking Rhus Tox, and I was just regretful that I hadn't thought of using homeopathics sooner. Thank you Dr. Kumar!
