Homeopathic Remedies for Muscle Adhesions in Chronic FM Pain! Why not?

At a recent appointment to my naturopath,  to the wonderfully named Dr. Love, the topic of recurrent muscle pain flares came up. Anti-inflammatory interventions and nervous system calming remedies had not broken the cycle of muscle pain I experience. My pain predominantly occurs in my upper back/shoulder blades on either side and my glute muscles/SI joints. Even though I stretch and strengthen, which helps, I have not broken out of these painful cycles. My naturopath asked what my osteopath had to say about whether my muscles are particularly restricted and not very responsive to treatment. My osteopath said that my thoracic spine and pelvis area were particularly restricted.

Dr. Love explained that tightness and restriction can occur when muscles are contracted for a long period of time, leading to adhesions in the connective tissues. Adhesions are a form of scar tissue that cause connective tissues to stick together in a way that restricts normal movement and function. There is evidence that adhesions in the fascia (a network of connective tissue throughout the body, like a soft skeleton) can contribute to fibromyalgia pain.*
Dr. Love felt that it might be helpful to give me some support for breaking down adhesions, to complement the work of my osteopath and physiotherapist. She prescribed a homeopathic remedy with two ingredients. The first was theosinaminium, which is a derivative of mustard seed oil. It is used as an internal solvent for dissolving scar tissue, fibroids, tumurs, and adhesions.** The other ingredient was silicea, which  “can stimulate the organism to re-absorb fibrotic conditions and scar-tissue”.***
In the last month, I have experienced decreased night time back pain, and greater resiliency in my upper back/shoulders (for example, I have been able to type this entire post without pain, when usually I use voice-t0-text technology). I am not sure if this supplement is the only reason, but since it has no side effects, I am happy to continue to take it to see if it will help me further!

    That’s brilliant you have seen such positive results. I have personally found better results from herbal therapies than I ever had from traditional meds. I hope things keep improving for you

    Hi What is the name of the homeopathic remedy that Dr. Love used for adhesions and fascia? Specifically the one mentioned in the article with Rhodallin and Silica.

  3. Katarina Zulak says:

    It was dispensed in her office, with no brand name. So unfortunately I can’t recommend a specific product. Lots of health food stores sell homeopathic remedies like silica independently. Or see a homeopath. Best of luck!

    hi Katarina
    I was thinking to use thiosinaminum and graphites for adhesions. i was curious to know if you had a scan to confirm that your adhesions had actually dissolved. Good luck with the recovery to you. Thanks in advance.

    I am trying to get rid of chronic muscular tension on my own by massaging tight muscles which are said to be result of fascia tightness, scar tissue, adhesions etc . I have following queries:
    1. Are your muscles relaxed now, I mean don’t they feel tender on massaging
    2. Are you still on that homeopathic medicine, as the original post is 4 year old, and any other update you want to share.
