CASTRO MORILLO, Eva María et al. Homeopathy and lumbar pain. Rev. Med. Electrón. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.1, pp. 81-88. ISSN 1684-1824.
The lumbar pain is a frequent symptom affecting patients assisting the consultation, and it is one of the most incapacitating. It prevails among the adult population, with a higher incidence in those aged more than 30 years. It may lead to crisis, or may be constant and temporal, permanent or recidivist. Treating it we use allopathic medicines, physical modalities and different traditional and natural medicine techniques with the objective of alleviating pain, recover or maintain the function, and also avoiding its recurrence. Considering the current development of the homeopathy, we decided to make a bibliographic review to identify the main homeopathic medicines that could be used in this entity according to the current criteria.
