Drops, tablets, injection solution: Injuries such as sprains, dislocations, contusions, effusions of blood and effusions into a joint, fractures; post-operative and post- traumatic oedema and swelling of the soft tissues; inflammatory processes and degenerative processes associated with inflammation on the various organs and tissues, including, in particular, on the support and mobility apparatus (tendovaginitis, styloiditis, epicondylitis, bursitis, scapulohumeral periarthritis, ect.); arthrosis of the hip, knee and small joints; commotio cerebri acuta.
Ointment: Injuries of all kinds (sports, accidents) such as sprains, dislocations, contusions, effusions of blood and effusions into a joint, fractures, etc; inflammatory processes and degenerative processes associated with inflammation on the various organs and tissues (e.g. periodontitis, suppuration of the gingival pockets, periodontosis), including, in particular, on the support and mobility apparatus (tendovaginitis, bursitis, scapulohumeral periarthritis), arthrosis of the hip, knee and small joints.
Hypersensitivity to botanicals of the Compositae family.
Drops, tablets, injection solution: In isolated cases, hypersensitivity reactions may occur. In rare cases, increased flow of saliva may occur after taking this medication. If this happens, the therapist should be consulted.

Neural and cerebral injuries, e.g. commotio cerebri; neural pains upon or after injuries; haemostatic.
Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Traumeel S, therapeutic possibilities result for the treatment of injuries, sprains and dislocations, contusions, effusions of blood and effusions into a joint, fractures, post operative and post- traumatic oedema and swelling of the soft tissues; inflammatory degenerative processes and those associated with inflammation on various organs and tissues, particularly on the support and mobility apparatus (tendovaginitis, styloiditis, epicondylitis, bursitis, periarthritis humeroscapularis, arthrosis), damaged discs and other degenerative diseases of the vertebral column with the corresponding intervertebral disorders, commotio cerebri (in association with Vertigoheel).

In general to stimulate the sulphide enzymes, e.g. in therapeutical damage and in degenerative phases.
As after-treatment after myocardial infarction (regulation of the prothrombin level).
The mechanism of action of Traumeel S arises from a combination effect (Bürgi) of vegetable and inorganic chemical factors, which are characterized by the following properties:
- Anti-inflammatory and antiviral action of mercurials.
- Improvement of the vasotonia (Aconitum, Arnica). rendering the vessels impervious (action of calcium). Elimination of venous stasis and antithrombotic effect (Hamamelis) as well as haemostasis (Achillea millefolium), together, with normalization of the prothrombin level.
- Support and improvement of the cellular respiration and oxidation process by means of calcium sulphide and polysulphide (hepar sulfuris).
- Stimulation of the main defence system.
- Stimulation of wound healing and shock control by means of phytotherapeutic agents (Arnica, Calendula, Echinacea, Symphytum); formation of “pus bonum et laudabile” (good and commendable pus).
- Analgesic (Aconitum, Arnica, Chamomilla, Hamamelis, Hypericum).
- Haemostasis (Aconitum, Arnica, Hamamelis (venous), Hypericum, Achillea millefolium (arterial), calcium sulphide and calcium polysulphide (rendering vessels impervious).
The principal effects of Traumeel S:
Arthrosis, fractures, epicondylitis (tennis elbow), styloiditis radii, tendovaginitis.
Swelling of the soft tissues, traumatic, post-operative, commotio cerebri, arthrosis (with and without irritating discharge), effusions into a joint, spontaneous, traumatic, post- operative; haematomas in the joints (traumatic haemarthrosis), haematomas in the soft tissues, tendovaginitis, bursitis praepatellaris, otitis media.
Bursitis praepatellaris, epicondylitis (tennis elbow), styloiditis radii, tendovaginitis, otitis media.
