One thing I and my husband have been trying is Phytopia PainAway Synergy for Muscle Soreness & Pain Relief. This is an alternative to using pills to help deal with pain that I like.
The PainAway comes in a small amber colored bottle to protect the contents from UV light. It is an oil based product that you massage into your affected area to help relieve the pain. Over time, it is supposed to lessen the pain as you use more and more of it, helping to keep pain at bay completely.
Here's what is in it:
Balsam Peru Oil
So far I can say it has helped a little, but not a lot. I am thinking that this is the kind of product you could use on a pulled muscle or sore muscles from exercise or a fall. It helps things like arthritis a little, but not enough for what I would like. My husband has noticed on his sore shoulder that he pulled a muscle in, this has helped and he has been enjoying using it. Has it taken away his pain completely? No, but he appreciates any help he can get with it. Complete pain relief will come when the shoulder heals up. But this has been helping him deal with the healing process.
I would suggest if you like using alternative remedies, this would be one to keep in your arsenal.
