Help With Pain

Hi All,

I was wondering what you guys use to help with pain relief, for example bruising and joint pain from training. I am looking for something that I can apply topically right to the spot where I feel pain, like a rub. I've used some different creams that have helped somewhat. Curious what has worked for ya'll.

Thanks,

~P

Joints? Anti-inflammatories. And lots of them.

Whenever you mention joint pain to the doctor, the first thing they usually tell you to do is take 800mg of ibuprofen every 8 hours. And it works alright. So when I have something minor, I just start taking ibuprofen.

If your joint pain is such that the ibuprofen isn't taking care of it... you might want to see a doctor. They can ascertain whether it's something that will go away on its own, whether PT is indicated, or whether you need surgical repair. And... they can give you cortisone shots into the joint, which can help TREMENDOUSLY with the pain (although they won't help the actual injury). They can also give you the better anti-inflammatories like meloxicam.

Bruises... they're a different matter. You need to get the swelling and excess blood out of them. You can use ice or cold RIGHT AFTER the injury, and for a couple of days to prevent the swelling buildup. But that's a hassle... I just live with them.

First and foremost before taking any medication try lots of of the following...

Ice the joint or bruised area.

After icing taking a VERY hot bath with epsom salts in the bath. Epsom salts will reduce inflamation, draw toxins out of the muscles and soothe the joints.

After the bath ice the area some more...

If after all of that or if you need a longer term relief you should take a combo of Tylenol (Acetaminophen) for pain relief and Naproxen Sodium, commonly sold as Alieve for inflammation. These medications can be taken together and are not cross-class drugs. One is a NSAID and one is an analgesic pain killer.

Normally and it should become a normal routine though when training hard and dealing with minor injuries and pains to take lots of Epsom salt baths and ice the problem areas. Also if money permits a sports or deep tissue massage every few weeks helps a TON!

You can apply a cold compress to the tender spot several times a day for up to 20 minutes. After a few days of cold treatment, apply heat for brief periods to relax muscles and increase blood flow. Each vertebrae has a spinous process, a bony prominence behind the spinal cord, which shields the cord's nervous tissue.

Tylenol can also be taken with ibuprofen for the same reason. Tylenol works on the nerves, ibuprofen works on the inflamation. An oral surgeon told me this years ago and I've been doing it ever since. Don't do this on an empty stomach though. You'll pay for it!!

As an older guy, when I started training my elbows and other joints were really hurting. I started taking joint supplements and it has really helped. Joint juice (sold at costco) and/or joint health made by emergen-c, and sold at most grocery stores, contain alot of glucosamine and other stuff.

I've taken these consistently and it has paid off.

Hope this helps.

When acute or chronic pain limits your life, turn to the Center for Pain Control in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, for effective pain relief.Having worked at PainCare for the past 6 years, Catherine easily met all of the requirements.

I can't recommend non-steroidal anti-inflammatory's enough, they're safe in small doses and easy enough to come across, and most importantly, very effective. However, depending on where you are, you may need to get a prescription to obtain them, which means a trip to your GP. He'll probably prescribe Difene.

Take it easy on the anti-inflammatory. When I was training hard I took so many I had a toxic reaction called a fixed drug eruption. Very ugly.

Also if you drink at all, never take Tylenol it will kill you.

Alcohol works
