Acute injuries – sprains , bruises , strains
The light bruises, strains and sprains can lead to mild or moderate pain and swelling. The swell may be discolored, after a day it can turn to purple, and then days later it can turn to yellow or brown. The bruising, mild sprains and strains can be treated at home with resting, ice pack and Nicoflex which accelerates the recovery. For mild injuries the usage is recommended twice a day. It is important that Nicoflex can’t be used in opened wounds and sored skins. Rub it gently because in the case of the upper epidermis damage it can tingle.
In case of Lower back pain (sciatica , lumbago)
This is how we call those unexpected sharp pains, which caused by irritated nerves in the lower back. People between 25 and 50 (both man and woman) are particularly at risk. Lumbago occurs after lifting a heavy object or after a sudden reckless gesture. The unexpected, very intense pain in the lumbar section of the spine (at the sacrum) can be felt and sometimes it’s so strong that every movement becomes impossible. The spinal muscular at this area is contracting and this can increase the pain. When the pain radiating to the leg or buttock, we are talking about sciatica. Nicoflex provides excellent assistance in this case as well.
To treat degenerative joint diseases
Globally approximately 250 million people are affected. In this disease the bones covering cartilage broken up and become uneven. Therefore the movements become painful and difficult; also it can lead the joint stiffness and deformation. The joint prior injury, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, one-sided load can lead to degenerative joint diseases. The moving pain is one sign of osteoarthritis. In that case after long sitting, resting the pain occurs if you start moving, but after a few moves the pain soften, means the joint is “getting the shape”. In the inflammatory phase the joint may be swollen because the synovial fluid is piling up. In case of rheumatic pains in muscles and joints the Nicoflex can provide aid.
The warm-up goal is to bring the muscles and circulatory system to “operating temperature” state.
The proper and regularly performed warm-up / stretching allow better performance and reduce the risk of potential damage. Nicoflex ointment can improve the warm-up process.
The ointment contains a substance (capsaicin), which increases the blood supply in the smeared area due the rubbing. However you need to know that Nicoflex only aid in the warm up processes but it does not redeem the whole process.
