If you want to tackle the pain and inflammation of everyday soft tissue injuries naturally but with clinical efficacy, Traumeel® is here to help. In fact, numerous clinical studies show that 100% natural Traumeel® ointment and gel are as effective as topical NSAIDs for the treatment of pain and restoration of function associated with minor injuries…

Many of us enjoy taking part in an active sport, such as exercising in the gym or going for a run, to keep our minds and bodies in the best possible shape. But with exercise comes the risk of injury – soft tissue injuries, such as strains, sprains and bruises, are among the most common. While they may not be serious, these injuries can still be painful and debilitating, causing a temporary stop to sporting activity.

NSAIDs vs. natural pain relief

Generally, we are not as patient at ‘waiting for things to heal on their own’ as we once were and just want to ease the pain quickly so we can get on with our life. To cope with this type of injury, many people will automatically reach for traditional treatments such as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). In particular, topical NSAIDs score well in current popularity because they allow us to target the treatment directly to the site of the pain. But what if you could treat this pain and inflammation naturally?

One of the big sticking points when looking for natural pain relief products is the assumption that there is a lack of proven scientific clinical studies. Such products have been historically used over extremely long periods of time, but only in recent times have we seen a push to demonstrate effectiveness through clinical testing, as is routinely used for pharmaceuticals.

Remedies such as arnica are well known and widely accepted as being effective for treating soft tissue injuries. Traumeel® harnesses this natural ingredient, alongside a range of other healing plants, to combat inflammation in a natural way and has been scientifically proven to work. This is why it is the product of choice for many professional and elite sportspeople.

Traumeel is the only 100% natural treatment for pain and inflammation that has undergone several clinical trials, including a large, gold standard, randomised and controlled study (TAASS) to prove its effectiveness. The TAASS study demonstrated that topical Traumeel (ointment and gel) is as effective as topical diclofenac (1%) gel for improving pain and function in active adults with an acute ankle sprain. Plus, all studies have demonstrated that Traumeel is safer and better tolerated than NSAIDs amongst users, making it a safe and equally effective natural alternative to conventional medicine for the whole family.

Traumeel is a natural healing cream, registered in the UK, that doesn’t just mask pain but works to restore the balance by targeting multiple mediators, reducing pro-inflammatory and increasing anti-inflammatory cytokines.

Traumeel Ointment (RRP £10.20 for 50g, £19 for 100g) is distributed worldwide in over 40 countries and is available to buy from all good pharmacies. Suitable for adults, the elderly and children over two years. For more information, visit traumeel.co.uk.
