Rheumatism, where pains are worse for first movements, agony; but relieved by continued movement and massage.
(Bryonia is worse for all movement.)
A few pellets four-hourly.
Also for sprains-especially of tendons.
Especially helps wrists-ankles-knees.
(N.B.-For sprained ankle, don’t attempt to walk, but stand with flexed knee and, leaning on the toes, carefully twist and move the foot in every direction, and so give displacements a chance to slip back into place. Repeat this at intervals.
Compress of Rhus, or Arnica will help 2 drops to the oz. of water: and Arnica or Rhus internally.
