The paper provides an overview of the evidence on the efficacy of Traumeel S that may be used as an agent of basic or adjuvant treatment for inflammatory diseases of various organs and tissues, in particular locomotor apparatus diseases (tenosynovitis, bursitis, styloiditis, periarthritis, etc.), and posttraumatic conditions (postoperative soft tissue swelling, muscle strain and ligament sprain).
