OTC Pain Relievers Inhibit Healing
You may be aware that OTC pain relievers (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs or NSAIDs) increase risk of gastric bleeding, but did you know that these drugs have actually been shown to significantly delay and hamper healing of all soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons and cartilage)? Metagenics, one of our nutritional supplement suppliers has put together an informative video on the risks of taking NSAIDs.
To help decrease pain after an injury, try safe, natural alternatives first. Chiropractic treatment, ice and other therapies not only decrease pain but promote healing. Safe and effective nutritional approaches and supplements are also available.
