Broken Bone Support

Broken Bone Support: Main Image

Primary Remedies

Arnica montana

This remedy can be used during the first days following the break to decrease pain from swelling and trauma.

Eupatorium perfoliatum

This remedy is well-known for its use in flu and fever when the bones are extremely painful ( “as if broken”) and is useful to relieve the deep or aching pain of actual broken bones.

Hypericum

This remedy is very useful for crushing injuries to body areas that are well-supplied with nerves. If smashed fingertips or toes are severe enough to traumatize the bones, Hypericum can be a welcome form of pain relief.

Ruta graveolens

This remedy is known for its effect on bone-bruises and on injuries to the periosteum (the covering of the bones); both of these types of trauma are involved when a fracture of a bone occurs. Ruta is also indicated when the pain around a fracture is extreme, and the person feels lame or weak. This remedy is also helpful in many cases when pain persists after treatment with Arnica.

Symphytum officinale

This accelerates the formation of callus and relieves the pain from the bone trauma.

Other Remedies

Bryonia

This remedy may help to bring relief if excruciating pain results from even the slightest motion. The person usually wants to remain completely still and not be touched or interfered with.

Calcarea phosphorica

Calcarea phosphorica helps in the consolidation of bone fractures, once they have been correctly set.
