For pain resulting from chronic inflammation such as arthritis, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and fibromyalgia, it is important to find a cream that has a long-lasting effect and is safe to use on a daily basis.
There are many different brands of anti-inflammatory cream available that contain different ingredients. As with any product, some may work better for you than others. Most common anti-inflammatory creams contain an ingredient called methyl salicylate that provides only short-term pain relief.
However, there are some brands that contain 100% natural and non-toxic ingredients. Some creams have even been reported to work to relieve inflammation while rebuilding damaged tissue and cells for long-term pain relief and healing. These types of cream are ideal for treating pain related to chronic inflammation, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia, because they are safe to use as often as needed and do not cause any adverse side effects.
Be sure to check the ingredients carefully and read the recommended dosage instructions before using any type of anti-inflammatory cream. If you choose to use a cream daily for chronic pain relief, it's always a good idea to check with your doctor to be sure.
