There are so many good (and some not so good) pain relief and natural anti-inflammatory topical creams on the market at the moment, it can be a bit confusing as to what is right for you.
Here at Queen Street Physiotherapy we stock a small range of different natural creams to cover all of your needs and preferences.
- Antiflamme: An old favourite of everyone who uses it. With a carefully selected range of naturally-derived plant based oils including Arnica, Hypericum, Calendula and Peppermint. It helps to relieve minor joint and muscle pain, reduce mild muscle inflammation, and assist in the management of muscle strains and sprains. It has a thick cream consistency and a pleasant minty smell. It is a wonderful alternative to the pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory creams for those who are looking for a plant based alternative.
- Bullet & Bone Muscle Activating Rub: This warming cream is another that can be used to alleviate muscle aches and pains. As it is lightweight and rapidly absorbed, it is designed to be used before exercise to accelerate warm-up and reduce the risk of injury. This lotion contains willow bark, meadowsweet and clary extract which offer natural anti-inflammatory effects.
Better Nature Pain Relief Cream: This is another new one to our shelves which has been created from naturally sourced plant ingredients including Eucalyptus, Arnica, Hypericum, Rosemary and Wintergreen. It has a very natural fragrance to it so if you prefer something with less smell but with the same natural anti-inflammatory properties then this may be the cream for you.
Please feel free to ask about any of these creams when you are next in the clinic. The Physiotherpist’s are happy to include them in your treatment so you can try before you commit to buying.
Whilst these products are not medicated, if you are unsure about what is safe to use on any specific skin conditions or if you are pregnant please consult with your doctor or pharmacist.
