We sell homeopathic creams for nerve injuries on our site. The remedy best known for injuries to areas rich in nerves, including the spinal cord is Hypericum perforatum. This is also a great remedy for painful wounds in general. Here is some information about Hypericum, and the other first aid creams, which may also help in nerve injuries.
Arnica montana is our great remedy for shock and trauma and for injuries to muscular tissue. Some sources say it is the first remedy to be thought for for an accident or injury, but J.T. Kent and others say that sometimes this is not the case. In the case of a nerve injury to the fingers, toes, or coccyx it is better to go straight to Hypericum. When my eldest son was a baby someone slammed a door on his indecx finger, nearly severing it. The first thing I did was give him Arnica, but he did not stop screaming, then I gave him Hypericum 30C and he stopped screaming instantly. That experience drove the point home to me that the location of the injury is important, what is injured is also important. Remember that Arnica cannot be used on an open wound. If surgery will be necessary it is better to wait till after the surgery to give the Hypericum in potency, as Hypericum can interfere with anesthesia.
Bellis perennis is a remedy and cream I do not sell, but I am mentioning it here, because it is also a remedy that can help with injuries to areas rich in nerves, like Hypericum. The texts say, “injuries to the nerves with intense soreness, better by cold bathing.”
Calendula officinalis is our great wound healer. It is listed in the texts for injuries to parts rich in sentient nerves and lacerations, again like Hypericum. My recommendation would be to combine Hypericum and Calendula (we have a cream that does just that) in injured nerves to get the benefit of both working together to heal the wound.
Hypericum perforatum should be thought of for injuries to areas rich in sentient nerves, such as the fingers and toes and the spine. It is a specific for injuries to the sacrum or coccyx. A characteristic of injuries needing Hypericum is that the pain radiates up and down from the site of the injury. Like Arnica, Hypericum is an important remedy for head injuries. Hypericum is good for wounds that are very painful. I sell a cream that combines Hypericum and Calendula for wound healing. Hypericum is good for insect and animal bites where you have shooting pains along the course of the nerve from the site of the bite. Hypericum can help with excessively painful hemorrhoids. It can also help with painful boils, abscesses and cysts. Hypericum is also an important remedy for injuries to dental nerves. Taking the remedy in potency, rubbing it on the cheek where the tooth is, or gargling with the tincture can all help with dental nerve pain, where the pain radiates from the injured tooth.
Ledum palustre also gets a mention in the field of injured nerves, particularly from sharp pointed objects. The characteristic feeling of coldness, but amelioration from cold applications should be present to confirm this prescription.
Ruta graveolens gets a mention for traumatic neuroma or benign tumors from injuries. Ruta helps with bone injuries with torn ligaments, muscles or nerves. It also gets a mention for sciatic nerve pain after injury.
