HOMEOPATHY AND FRACTURES-
Homeopathy provides many significant medicines in treating people who suffer from accidents and injuries. When these medicines are used in combination with conventional procedures, the risk of long-term damage from an injury can be significantly decreased and the healing process can be noticeably improved. Homeopathic medicines will help build and maintain a healthy, resilient skeleton that can support and speed up healing over the fractured site by enhancing circulation, can also be used as an antiseptic to avoid infections in case of open fractures. Patients treated homeopathically experience less pain, have fewer side effects, and recover faster. The goal of this Homeopathic approach is to enliven the body\’s natural healing and self-repair ability to not only help recover your fracture, but also create the highest state of health and well-being. Homeopathic remedies are also non–habit forming and have no addictive characteristics.
A STRESS FRACTURE is one type of incomplete fracture in bones. It is caused by “unusual or repeated stress” and also heavy continuous weight on the ankle or leg.
It could be described as a very small sliver or crack in the bone; this is why it is sometimes dubbed “hairline fracture”. It typically occurs in weight-bearing bones, such as the tibia (bone of the lower leg) and metatarsals (bones of the foot).
It is a common sports injury, and most cases are associated with athletics.
Stress fractures usually have only a few symptoms. A stress fracture could present as a generalized area of pain and tenderness associated with weight bearing. Usually when running, a stress fracture in the leg or foot will cause severe pain at the beginning of the run, moderate pain in the middle of the run, and severe pain at the end and after the run. After running it may just feel like shin splints, but in a very concentrated area. Occasionally, darkening or bruising will be seen at the site.
If a stress fracture occurs in a weight-bearing bone, healing will be delayed or prevented by continuing to put weight on that limb. Most people don\’t even know they have a hairline fracture until they hurt themselves again, then they have a broken bone. If left untreated, the broken bone can turn into an infection that can cause severe medical issues.
Rest is the only option for complete healing of a stress fracture. The amount of recovery time varies greatly depending upon the location, severity, the strength of the body\’s healing response and an individual\’s nutritional intake.
