The most frequent cause for people to seek medical guidance is pain. One study revealed that the adult population in India has chronic pain (CP) at a rate of 19.3%. According to the World Health Organization, 80% of people who experience acute pain never get sufficient care. It is a difficult issue as a consequence of low priority, underreporting, and under treatment in developing nations.
Homoeopathy is a kind of alternative medicine that focuses on enhancing a person's overall health and is based on the theories of individualization and symptom similarity. The goal of homoeopathy is to cure chronic pain while simultaneously addressing its underlying cause while taking into account the patient's susceptibility. Clear instructions regarding the method of enquiry are found in books of Homoeopathic philosophy, and Homoeopathic Material Medical contains a huge armamentarium of medicines with a complete description of pain and its various modalities. Various studies also suggest the effective role of Homoeopathy in the management of chronic pain. Thus, Homoeopathy can be considered a viable treatment option to relieve chronic pain.
