A 42 year old male, a sales person by profession, had complained of severe pain in the upper back. Pain would increase on slightest motion or even touch. Pain would radiate to the shoulders as well.
There was stiffness of the upper part of the back preventing him to turn his neck at all. He was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. He was very frustrated of his condition as he could not go to work and it was affecting him in every way.
Based on his whole history, he was prescribed Kalmia Latifolia for 15 days. The stiffness and pain had reduced slightly, and the movements were still difficult. He continued medicines for another month and the improvement was still gradual. He continued to take homeopathy for almost 1-2 years as homeopathy helped to prevent further degeneration and it also improved the pain and stiffness. He could work as the pain was quite manageable.
