11 May Pain in the Frame?
Joint pain & stiffness?
Neck & shoulder pain?
There are many different forms of physical pain—and in none of these forms is it a good thing.
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.
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.
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.
