Osteoarthrosis : This is the form of arthritis characterized by erosion of articular cartilage, either primary or secondary to trauma or other conditions. The articular cartilage becomes soft, frayed, and thinned with eburnation of subchondral bone and outgrowths of marginal osteophytes. It results in pain and loss of function and mainly affects weight-bearing joints. It is more common in older persons.

Ankylosing spondylitis : This is the arthritis of the spine, resembling rheumatoid arthritis that may progress to bony ankylosis with lipping of vertebral margins. This disease is more common in the male often with the rheumatoid factor absent and the HLA antigen present. There is a striking association with the B27 tissue type and the strong familial aggregation suggest an important genetic factor, perhaps inherited as an autosomal dominant, the mechanism, however, remains obscure.

Ferrum phosphoricum: Inflammation, especially in the right shoulder—with pain that extends to the wrist, or sometimes to the neck—may be soothed by this remedy. Gentle motion and cool applications often bring relief. The person’s face may be flushed and pinkish.

Kalmia latifolia : Pain that starts in a higher joint (especially the hip or shoulder), and shoots or travels downward, suggests a need for this remedy. Right shoulder bursitis is common and extends to the elbow, wrist, or hand. Pain and inflammation may come on suddenly, and often shift around. Discomfort is worse from motion, worse at night, and has a neuralgic character.

Rhus toxicodendron : This remedy is helpful to those who experience stiffness and pain on initial movement, gradually improving as motion continues—although too much motion can also aggravate the pain. Pain is often worse during sleep and on waking in the morning. Cold, damp weather can increase the problems, and warm applications and baths bring relief.

Rhus Toxicodendron : According to Dr. Gary Null, author of “Complete Encyclopedia of Natural Healing,” this remedy is often indicated when pain gets worse at night, and then again in the morning when one awakens. Cold, damp weather may also exacerbate symptoms. Warmth and motion may provide relief. The joints may be hot and painful, with stiffening and swelling when rhus tox is indicated.
