Pain is the body’s way of telling us that something is not right. It can be experienced as a result of many different types of injuries. Most of the time, we feel pain due to:
- Tissue inflammation
- Nerve irritation
- Wear and tear of the joints
- Traumatic injuries
Pain normally provides a protective signal that helps us respond to disease and injury. However when pain is severe or persistent, it also cause very significant distress and problems. It is important when experiencing pain, to consult your doctor for an accurate diagnosis so that the most effective and appropriate treatment options can be considered.
For many patients, there are established simple common approaches that can provide pain relief.
Tiger Balm is one of the best known brand of rubs with nearly a century of use in almost 100 countries.
Salonpas is another brand well known for their FDA approved pain patches.
Flexiseq is a drug-free water-based gel made up of millions of phospholipids, which travel through the skin and tissue upon application, penetrating the joint.
