Muscle pain, also known as myalgia can range from mild to excruciating. While in most cases, the pain is temporary, sometimes muscle aches can stretch for months. Muscle pain can develop almost anywhere in the body, including the neck, back, legs and even hands.
- Injuries & Strains
The most common cause of muscle pains is strains to the muscles due to excessive tension in one or more areas of the body. These are common while engaging in physically demanding work or exercise.
- Diseases, disorders, medications
Muscle pain is usually a residual effect of other diseases or disorders including infections, fever and auto-immune disorders. It is also a very common side effect of many prescription medicines.
Viopatch is the safest remedy to treat muscle pain as it does not require oral ingestion. It delivers a high amount of drug dose to the affected area in a targeted manner. The drug delivery is sustained for 12 hours, which is longer than all topical products as well as oral analgesics.
- Resting the area of the body where one is experiencing aches and pains usually allows the symptoms to subside. This should be followed by light exercises to keep the muscles toned and flexible.
