Since the early days of arnica use, its medicinal applications have varied around the world.
In the US, popularity is growing among healthcare providers. Here are a few examples of how arnica has been used by different types of medical professionals.
Homeopaths & Naturopathic Doctors
Because arnica’s benefits are time-tested and multifaceted, homeopaths and naturopaths will recommend arnica for a variety of health needs, including:
When you walk in to get a massage, don’t be surprised if your massage therapist offers topical arnica as a remedy to treat your muscle pain. Some therapists have even deemed arnica the “Perfect Massage Partner.”
Cosmetic therapies, like botox injections, can result in facial bruising. As a result, plastic surgeons may recommend the use of topical arnica following such a procedure to limit facial bruising.
Homeopathic arnica has also made its way into the dentist’s chair. Following extractions, root canals, or invasive oral surgeries, dentists might recommend trying arnica to help reduce facial swelling and tenderness.
