·         Back pain worse with laughing
·         Back pain worse with fecal straining
·         Sudden back pain when twisting
·         Sudden back pain when bending

·         Local muscle weakness
Remedies-
1. Hypericum [Hyp]
Mainly indicated for PID after spinal injury, even for injections into the spine that result in headaches, etc.; injury to areas rich in nerves, like the tail bone. Trauma with nerve pain, sharp shooting pain, numbness, tingling; pains shoot upwards; spinal concussion, temporary paralysis; always give Arnica first to prevent swelling and bruising--ARNICA is our main trauma remedy. Severe pain, worse touch and pressure; you may have to repeat Hypericum every few minutes depending on the severity of the pain.

2. Natrum Sulphuricum [Nat-s]
Deep spinal aches, stiffness, sore and bruised feeling; worse damp, cold-damp, hot-humid; spinal concussion when Arnica only palliates.  Mental and emotional changes after spinal injury, for instance--depression, even suicidal depression; when pain remains after Arnica has been given for swelling.

3. Ruta Graveolens [Ruta]
Back injury from twisting (also Rhus tox.) Lame feeling, weakness in the back since injury. The person needing Ruta is afraid to do anything, afraid their back will give out. Stiffness.

4. Calcarea Fluorica [Calc-f.]
This is the "chronic" of Ruta. The lameness and laxness has become a permanent feature of the case; degeneration of the vertebrae since spinal trauma and Ruta only palliates. PID with severe pain in back; shooting, tearing pains.

5. Magnesia Phosphorica [Mag-p]
Very good acute remedy for PID. Acute back spasms, sharp shooting pains, muscle spasms. We call this remedy "homeopathic asprin", but the general symptoms must be present, namely: pains that are relieved by heat and aggravated by cold, pains that are better from hard pressure.

6. Bryonia Alba [Bry]
Bryonia has sharp pain, slightest motion aggravates, even coughing aggravates. Irritable. Acute slipped disc. Better for lying still and from hard pressure.

7. Bellis Perennis [Bell-p]
Bellis per has deep aches in the spine and injuries to the periosteum (Ruta). Back injuries from lifting and over-straining. The gardener's remedy--achy and stiff. Deep bruising. When Arnica has cleared the bruising but a lump remains. Joint pain caused by being over-heated and then suddenly drinking something ice cold or jumping into cold water. Injuries to the nerves, intense soreness, injuries to the tail bone. Remote effects of injuries--in other words, you're injured here, but the effect is there. Nerve pains during pregnancy because of pressure exerted by the baby.

8. Rhus Toxicodendron [Rhus t]
Achy, sore and bruised pain with stiffness from falls, accidents, over-lifting, twisting, over-doing in general, sitting in a draft and getting chilled. This is a major arthritis remedy and sciatica remedy when the general symptoms of Rhus t. are present, namely: a great restlessness, can't get comfortable in any position, so there is constant movement. Think of this as the exact opposite of Bryonia which doesn't want to move at all. Rhus tox can't stop moving, though first-motion may be painful, continued motion seems to ease the pain and loosen them up. Eventually, though, they will tire and will have to rest, which will begin the restlessness anew. Next, better from heat, massage and stretching. Mag-p. and Rhus tox are both better from heat and want it as hot as they can stand it--hot water bottles, showers, hot tubs, hot compresses, etc. Dampness and coldness will definitely aggravate. They will tell you they know when a storm is coming because their pains get worse or their arthritis acts up. Worse in rainy weather, cold wet weather, cloudy weather, foggy weather; they're so sensitive to cold that even touching something cold or drinking or eating something cold can aggravate.

9. Aesculus [Aesc]
1 remedy for all sacro-iliac problems since an injury or a fall. Achy in lumbar/sacral area. Pains are worse stooping, rising from stooping or rising from a seat; has to make repeated efforts at getting up. Ankylosing spondylitis, arthritis, sciatica. Spine rigid, frozen. Degenerative hip disease. Walking aggravates. Spine feels weak and stiff. Back and legs give out.

10. Lycopodium [Lyc]
Chronic low back pain with the concomitant symptom of gas and bloating. Back injury with gas and bloating.
