Glossary On Homeopathic Treatment

Gentle relief for the aching joints…

At the Division of Geriatric Medicine in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, a study clearly demonstrated that Homeopathic remedies show positive response in the treatment of Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. At Dr. Batra's, we have the proficiency and experience of treating osteoarthritis patients for the last 35 years. We have been successful in giving good relief to a large number of patients suffering from this disease and imparting a better quality of life to them. Holistic healing forms the foundation of the treatment that we provide at Dr. Batra's.

Homeopathy can offer good relief to patients with Osteoarthritis especially those in the early stages of the disease. The medication can help in controlling pain as well as improving the mobility of the joints. Most patients notice a reduction in the pain and stiffness after commencing treatment and improved mobility of the joints. An overall general improvement in the health is also noted by majority of them.

Since OA is a degenerative condition, it may not be possible to reverse the changes that have already occurred at the microscopic level on the joints but it is possible to slow down the further progress of the condition. In advanced cases, palliation is all that can be offered to the patients.

An important point to be noted about Homeopathic treatment is that the medicines can be continued for a long period (which is required on OA cases) without worrying about any side effects. The medicines are completely safe, non-toxic and non habit forming.
