Ganglion

Homeopathic Treatment for Ganglion

Definition:

Ganglion is a small sac filled with fluid and is formed from the lining of a joint or tendon. It usually forms when the tissues surrounding certain joints become inflamed and swell up with lubricating fluid.

Causes:

It is generally caused due to some kind of trauma to the joint but the cause may not be evident in all cases. Ganglion formation is more common in women (M:F = 1:3) and 70% occur in the late teens and young adulthood. Some joint diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis have been associated with ganglion cysts. Occupational factors play an important role in the development of ganglion. Those occupations that require workers to overuse certain joints such as the wrist and fingers, for instance typewriters, pose a risk for ganglion cysts.

Symptoms:

Most commonly, ganglion formation is seen on the wrist (usually the back side) and fingers, but it can also develop on the shoulders, elbows and knees. Ganglia are usually painless swellings that can form around any joint. However, the condition can become painful when the ganglion presses nerves. This pain can restrict the range of movements and activity of an individual. They can increase in size or can disappear spontaneously.

Suggestion about homeopathic treatment

Causes & Homeopathic Treatment for Ganglion

Largely ganglion is labeled as a surgical condition; however, in light of homeopathy it can be termed as medico-surgical condition. Surgeries done for ganglion are associated with rare complications like nerve damage, stiffness of joints and recurrence. Some cases of ganglion have been treated with success at Life Force. However, since surgery is faster, we do not recommend homeopathy for all cases of ganglion.
