Homeopathic remedies are very useful in first aid circumstances. Remedies are prescribed on the principle that ‘like cures like’ in a tiny dilution. The following indications are what a healthy person would feel if taking the actual substances.
Arnica montana produces conditions upon the system quite similar to those resulting from injuries, falls, blows or contusions. Symptoms include a sore, lame or bruised feeling. Arnica may also be used for any injury resulting from overuse and commonly worsens from the slightest touch or motion.
But let’s say you’re on the slopes with your friends or are walking out your door and slip on some ice. You fall and land on your tailbone (we’ve all done it before). Then you may want to consider the homeopathic remedy hypericum perfolatium. Hypericum perfolatium produces conditions upon the system similar to those from crush injuries.
If either or those remedies don’t work you can always consider combination remedies like traumeel. Traumeel can easily be rubbed directly onto the injured area for pain relief.
Other treatments to consider include rest and ice. Remember in the first 72 hours ice is your friend and heat is your enemy. When applying the ice you should follow the acronym CBAN (cold, burn, ache, then numb), and avoid applying ice directly to the skin. Instead use a thin fabric to create a barrier. Once you feel the numbing sensation, remove the ice pack. If you think your injury is serious remember check with your doctor.
