A clinical study on homoeopathic medicines in pain management of haemorrhoids in adult age group
Author(s): Dr. Joseph T Kariyil
Background and Objectives: Most of the treatment modes available for haemorrhoids are not up to the mark and a large number of patients are ultimately forced to undergo surgical interventions due to their symptoms. Pain is one of the common presentations of hemorrhoids and this study is aimed at understanding the improvement in pain of hemorrhoids in the adult age group using homoeopathic medicines.
Materials and Methods: Prospective, observational study was carried out in 30 patients by purposive sampling. Each case was followed for 6 months and outcome assessment was done by scores before and after study.
Result: Statistical analysis was done using a t-test where the result was t (29) = 24.80, p< 0.05 which shows there was a significant improvement of pain and improvement of pain in type D patients is more correlated with the overall improvement in the population under study.
