Managing pain can sometimes be a difficult and daunting task. You’re not sure what products or treatment methods will work for you. What works for one might not be as effective for your pain. Do you go the medication route or try over-the-counter treatment instead? Pain relieving gels and electrotherapy are both viable options, but two very different paths for pain relief.
Pain relief gel, such as Biofreeze, are greaseless and stainless gels that will provide relief from minor aches and pains. Sore muscles due to arthritis, backaches, sprains, or strains will benefit from gels. Essentially, gels are better for acute pain, as opposed to chronic pain. If you have ongoing pain, apply gel everyday might temporarily alleviate some of that pain, but a much better solution would be some form of electrotherapy, either a TENS Unit, muscle stimluator, or portable ultrasound. These machines work best for those who suffer constant pain and need relief and choose not to opt for the medication route.
But each of these machines works a bit differently so do your research before choosing one. You can find out more information about electrotherapy at our blog or by visiting OTCWholesale.com.
