Joint pain & stiffness?

Back pain?

Neck & shoulder pain?

There are many different forms of physical pain—and in none of these forms is it a good thing.

 Fibromyalgia

This condition causes pain in muscles and other fibrous tissue. Practically all parts of the body may be affected,

but aches and pain in the neck and shoulders and thigh muscles are perhaps the most common. Digestive

problems such as IBS may also be present. Try A.Vogel Joint Pain Relief internally and also the A.Vogel Absolüt

Arnica gel topically. Use a magnesium supplement to help relieve muscle tension.

Sprains & strains

A sprain is damage to a ligament. A strain is a stretched or torn muscle. Both injuries are associated with pain

and bruising. Applying ice as soon as possible after sustaining the injury will help, as well elevating the injured

area. Apply A.Vogel Absolüt Arnica gel externally as soon as possible and if pain persists, use A.Vogel Joint Pain

Relief internally. For sporting types, rest will help the healing process.

Tendonitis

This is damage to tendons—the fibrous tissue connecting bones to muscles. The condition is often associated

with repetitive or stressful movements (Repetitive Strain Injury). The movements causing the problem should

be avoided, but general exercise to strengthen is useful. Use A.Vogel Absolüt Arnica gel for its pain-relieving

action. Glucosamine sulphate can be taken to strengthen connective tissue.

Rheumatic pain

This is a vague term generally indicating pain in muscles, joints or both. Many people can experience rheumatic

pains—not just the older generation. Try A.Vogel Joint Pain Relief internally and drink Stinging Nettle tea or

consider the A.Vogel Stinging Nettle extract. Magnesium may help to reduce muscle tension.

Tackle pain as soon as you experience it

  • Countering inflammation is important as it rapidly becomes destructive to the tissues it affects. Topical remedies can be applied and/or internal remedies taken, depending on the area affected.
  • Tracking down the source of the pain is vital, so that steps can be taken to rectify the problem and promote healing. Check with your doctor and consider consulting a physiotherapist, an osteopath, or a craniosacral therapist.
  • Pain quickly affects other areas of life, such as sleep quality and mood, so be aware that other symptoms may resolve once the pain abates.

Hot or cold?

Pain can respond to the application of heat or ice. In general: Use an ice-pack for acute injuries such as a sprain

or strain as soon as possible after sustaining the injury.

Warm baths with anti-inflammatory essential oils such as Thyme and Eucalyptus can help more long-standing

pain such as back pain, a stiff neck or rheumatic pain.

“No pain, no gain!”

This mantra was dreamed up by people with exercise videos to sell. Pain is the body’s way of telling you that

something is wrong and you should sort it out, please.
