The side effects are present in nine out of ten cases and they may include ulcers or cause a lower immune system. These side effects can be evaded through taking a homeopathic route instead of the conventional route.
How to Sooth Sprains and Strains

There are many different homeopathic medicines offering the same cure and to start with it can be a hit and miss game of chance because everyone’s bodies are different and react to different remedies. Rhus tox remedy can be used if your injury has caused you to feel stiff in that area especially at the end of the day after overuse.

A remedy called Ruta is good for the same reason however it is also used for people who have stubborn injuries that keep coming back for example tennis elbow. If you find that the smallest movement causes you to experience a sharp pain then try a remedy called Bryonia. If you have a swelling that looks bruised and a mottled purple colour and also feels cold and numb to the touch then try a remedy called Ledum.
