Stiff muscles and/or joints may lead to muscular pains, which can appear after a day of intensive sports, an incorrect posture or unusual effort. Waste products (lactic acid) concentrate in the muscle and as soon as that concentration hits the nerves, you experience muscular pain. One solution is to rub cream on your tired muscles, as it often releases heat and makes the muscles more flexible.
Treatments for muscular and joint pain
Joint pains are often caused by wear and tear (arthritis) or inflammation (arthritis / rheumatism). You can take painkillers to alleviate the pain and stay mobile. Heat can also help to keep the joints more supple. An infra-red lamp radiates heat that penetrates deep into the muscles and joints – these are available online here.
Patch for muscular and joint pain
Creams and tablets do not always help against muscular or joint pains, in which case, you can apply a heat patch against the pain such as Medisana Medistim.
