A fall may result in a bruise, fracture or emotional shock, all of which may be associated with blood loss and internal organ damage. Conditions such as diabetes, hypoglycaemia and the use of drugs (prescribed or otherwise) may be a reason for an individual to fall.


Any obvious injury, loss of consciousness or change in character of an individual who has fallen needs to be reviewed by a doctor.

Any injury can be treated with the homeopathic remedy Arnica, at potencies 6-12, every 2hr.

An osteopathic opinion should be obtained following any serious fall because other parts of the body may take the strain off an injured part, leading to problems at a later date.
