Medications?

Medications are helpful in treating the acute symptoms of a recent injury.

Analgesics

These medications are designed at pain reduction such as paracetamol or codeine.

Anti-inflammatory Medications

These medications help control the inflammation caused by the injury, and also help to reduce pain. There are many anti-inflammatory options, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about what medication is appropriate for you.

Muscle Relaxants

Again, there are several options that you may discuss with your doctor. These medications are often sedating, so they need to be used with care. For patients who have significant muscle spasm symptoms, these muscle relaxing mediations can be a very useful aspect of treatment.

Liniments

Liniments are usually made with components of natural medicines and herbs that have pain relieving (analgesic), anti-inflammatory, aromatic and chemical thermal stimulators (eg heating or cooling). Liniments are usually available without prescription.
