A 72-year-old woman had been suffering from lower back pain for the past five years. She is very active and regular with her daily walks. But she had to wear a back support for traveling, sitting down on the floor, or standing for long periods. She has been taking allopathic tablets for 20 years for high BP and for one year for hypothyroid, both of which she decided to continue. She was not taking any medicine for back pain. On 18 April 2019, the practitioner gave:
CC3.7 Circulation + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC20.3 Arthritis + CC20.4 Muscles & Supportive tissue + CC20.6 Osteoporosis…6TD in water
Within three weeks the patient felt 30% improvement in pain and by the end of eight weeks, she was 80% better. After another week on 21 June, she reported 100% relief, stopped using the belt to support her back and had no problem sitting or standing for long periods. So the dosage was reduced to TDS and after two weeks to OD, before stopping the remedy on 1 Aug 2020. There has been no recurrence as of 15 Jan 2021.
Editor's note: CC20.5 Spine could have been added to accelerate the recovery.
