Best Way to Alleviate Post-Workout Muscle Pain: [DOMS]


Soothe post-workout muscle aches and pains with this proven over-the-counter remedy

Product:
 Fast Acting, Deep-Heat MuscleMagic Pain Relief Cream; Maximum Strength; 4 oz. jar | USD $24.99
How it works: MuscleMagic utilizes proven pain relief agents known as counterirritants in its formula, which trick the brain into paying more attention to the warming or cooling sensation than to pain. It contains methyl salicylate (which produces warmth) and also Camphor which stimulates cold receptors that help the body and mind relax all while acting as a local anesthetic. Emu oil is also included as it is an effective topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, or NSAID, that penetrates skin for local pain relief. MuscleMagic Pain Relief Cream is a chiropractor favorite since using NSAIDs topically instead of orally can minimize side effects such as an upset stomach.
Need to know: Apply to the affected area twice daily. Do not cover or use in combination with heat or ice therapy. Discontinue if you notice irritation. Topical NSAIDs can be used with oral pain relievers and muscle relaxants, but be certain to talk to your doctor if you take blood-thinning medication.
