Step off a curb, sprain your ankle: you stretched (or tore) a ligament… the kind of tissue that connects bone to bone in a joint.
Go at it too hard at the gym, strain a muscle in your arm: you stretched (or tore) a muscle or tendon tendon… the kind of tissue that connects muscles to a bone.
Get an injury just about anywhere by anything, you got a bruise: ruptured blood vessels under the skin that cause a dark discoloration.
They all hurt. If serious, they need professional medical attention, especially if you take blood-thinning medications or have other medical issues. But in the meantime, whatever other treatment you’re using, Brazilian Menthol can help relieve the pain fast and safely.
For immediate pain relief.
For immediate pain relief, the one-two combination of Menthol and Epson Salts can really make a difference. As a natural analgesic, Menthol creates a numbing effect, reduces inflammation and increases blood flow to assist in healing. Epsom Salts also reduce inflammation, improve blood flow and help eliminate toxins naturally.
Better still, the proprietary formula found in Brazilian Menthol™ packs all this pain relieving, soothing power in a natural, completely safe crème or roll-on you can use anytime.
What else can I do to help strains, sprains and bruises?
For sprains and strains, try ice packs early and heat after swelling has gone down. (Heat early can increase swelling and pain.)
Never put hot or cold packs on bare skin. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) like ibuprofen can help if you can takethem safely. And, the PRICE formula – Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) can be beneficial. Finally, don’t do things that make it hurt more until the pain has reduced.
For bruises, apply cold early, take acetomeniphen if you can (which will help pain but won’t cause additional bleeding), elevate the injured area if possible, and try applying heat later, when swelling has gone down.
