When your muscles don’t have enough power or strength to produce movement, we term it as muscle weakness.

Muscles are a bundle of fibrous contractile tissues which contract to produce movement. For this to happen the nervous system sends signals to the respective muscle and this interchange takes place at the neuromuscular junction.

While anyone can face short term muscle weakness due to exercise, illness or injury, but if it stays permanently, it indicates an underlying medical condition.

For voluntary contraction of the muscles, the brain coordinates the muscle movements by sending signals through the spinal cord and nerves onto the muscles.

Any damage or injury to this system (spinal cord, nerves or muscles) affects the movement of the muscles.

  • Lack of exercise
  • Aging
  • Increased calcium in the blood

Homeopathic Treatment for Muscle Weakness

If you face persistent muscle weakness with no apparent reason consult a homeopath. After analyzing your case in detail he may prescribe you with certain tests.

Your previous medical history, family history, symptoms, location, and severity of the pain are all of equal importance for a homeopath.

Natural homeopathic remedies which match your symptoms are then prescribed.

Diagnosis of muscle weakness might include the following tests

  • CT scans or MRI
  • Nerve test
  • Electromyography
  • Blood tests to check for infection, if any


Conditions where muscle weakness can be a sign of an emergency

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Numbness
  • Sudden confusion
  • Difficulty moving limbs
  • Difficulty speaking

Diffuse Muscle Weakness

When the symptoms are not localized to one area but in many areas.

In this case, a homeopath will consider a variety of factors as such persons feel weak all over.

Such persons may face weakness while performing normal routine activities like getting up from bed, combing hairs, doing household works, lifting objects, etc.

Homeopathy for muscle pain provides effective natural relief. Consult a qualified homeopath.
