Watching Briefs: Pain management

Deep Relief

The Deep Relief range provides targeted relief from rheumatic and muscular pains, sprains and strains, joint pain and minor sports injuries, says Mentholatum. Containing cooling, pain-relieving levomenthol and ibuprofen, Deep Relief is the only topical NSAID to offer two pain-relieving ingredients, plus anti-inflammatory action, adds the company. Deep Relief Pain Relief Gel is available in packs of 30g and 50g and Deep Relief Joint Pain Gel in a 100g pack.

Nurofen Express is clinically proven to provide relief from a wide range of aches and pains, says RB, from the muscular twinge of back pain, the dull aches and fever of cold and flu, right through to period pains. Nurofen Express Liquid Capsules 400mg also provides faster relief for headaches compared to standard paracetamol, says the company, because the formulation breaks down easily in the body, allowing for fast absorption into the bloodstream.

To support the launch of its 180g pack, Voltarol Emulgel P has joined forces with Arthritis Research UK to develop practical guidance regarding simple, low impact and achievable exercises for people with mild osteoarthritis and joint pain. The Everyday Exercises for Everyday Lives’ programme will drive awareness of arthritis and offer practical advice to those living with the condition, says the company.

Deep Heat & Deep Freeze

Deep Heat and Deep Freeze can be recommended to help ease mild to moderate musculoskeletal pain, says Mentholatum. Cold products, such as those in the Deep Freeze range, should be used as soon as possible after a sprain or strain to help reduce pain, inflammation and swelling. Warming products, such as those in the Deep Heat range, can help relax muscles, reduce stiffness, relieve pain and improve the blood supply to the affected area.
