When to use a topical NSAID pain and inflammation relief gel.

NSAIDs stand for Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory drugs. A “topical” NSAID analgesic treatment is a pain relieving gel, cream, patch or spray that is applied directly to the painful part of the body. This works differently to painkillers that are taken orally which dissolve to release their ingredients into the bloodstream.

Deep Relief Pain Relief Gel and Deep Relief Joint Pain Gel are topical NSAIDs pain and inflammation relief treatments designed for targeted use directly on the skin where you need it.

Topical NSAIDs such as gels are well recognized as an effective alternative to oral pain-killers.

The use of topical NSAIDs to treat lower back pain or sprains and strains is recommended by the Self-Care Forum, which says that “Rub-on” (topical) treatments and painkillers such as ibuprofen are effective in most cases and recommends that sufferers should consult their pharmacist for advice.
