Homeopathy and Back Pain
There are several remedies and creams that can help with back pain due to trauma to the back or spine, such as Hypericum, which is known for spinal cord injuries, and Arnica, which is good for muscular soreness and trauma. Ruta is another wonderful remedy for back pain and pain after chiropractic adjustments.
