From Yogis to CrossFitters, Arnicare Can Make Peace with Muscle Pain

NEWTOWN SQUARE, PA--(Marketwired - Sep 7, 2017) - Gentle exercises like yoga are designed to relieve pain. However, like any form of exercise, it can also result in musculoskeletal pain, soreness and bruising. Even the yoga pigeon pose, can cause small tears in muscle fibers. A recent study from the University of Sydney found that yoga causes musculoskeletal pain in 10 percent of people and exacerbates 21 percent of existing injuries. To find relief, a homeopathic remedy called Arnicare works to alleviate muscle pain and stiffness and can also reduce swelling and bruising from exercise injuries.

"Sore muscles can be a deterrent to stick with your exercise schedule," says Dr. Ken Redcross, board-certified internal medicine physician and avid CrossFitter. "To keep an active workout routine, no matter how extreme or moderate, it's essential to resolve the onset of muscle pain and soreness as quickly as possible."

DOMS, or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, can occur within 24-48 hours of physical activity, with the discomfort lasting for a few days, as the muscles work to repair themselves. Severe DOMS has other debilitating side effects including joint stiffness, reduced mobility and muscle weakness.

Redcross says many things in nature have powerful healing properties that can address muscle soreness effectively. Restorative foods such as berries, eggs and salmon have been scientifically shown to speed up sore muscle recovery post workout. Redcross also recommends Arnicare, which is made from Arnica montana, a wild mountain daisy that is harvested each summer in the French Alps.

"My own CrossFit workouts can be pretty intense," said Redcross who personally uses Arnicare gels and creams. "I have found that the Arnicare cream is good to massage into the affected muscle areas, while the gel has a cooling effect. Neither have an odor, which is a plus."

Arnicare can be taken orally in the form of pellets that dissolve under the tongue or used topically as a gel or cream for relief of muscle pain and stiffness. It can be purchased over the counter at CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens as well as health food stores nationwide. Average retail price for a 2.6-ounce tube is $10.99 and $7 for an 80-count vial of pellets. Arnicare Gel is paraben-free and manufactured according to the high standards of drug Good Manufacturing Practices and conforms to the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States.
