But sometimes a topical pain reliever can be your best option.
Topical pain relievers are fast, targeted, and you don’t have to worry about interactions with other oral medications you may be taking.
But not all topical pain relievers are created equal.
So you want to know – which topical pain relievers really work?
What’s the truth?
What is a Topical Pain Reliever?
Topical pain relievers are a group of different medicines that are used “externally”, which means it is applied directly to the skin.
Most topical pain relievers have one of two active ingredients:
Menthol and capsaicin are the most common topical pain reliever ingredients.
You trust old home remedies, like an ice pack or a hot bath… menthol and capsaicin feel very similar. Many people report menthol has a cooling feeling, like an ice pack, while capsaicin has a warming feeling, like a hot shower stream.
Of course, menthol and capsaicin are also powerful medicines working for you, too. They can be formulated into creams, gels, sprays, or patches, and used to hone in on whatever muscular or joint pain is bothering you.
How Menthol Works as a Topical Pain Reliever
In essence, that cool feeling you get with menthol is acting as a distraction.
That’s right – the medicine actually distracts your body, focusing it away from the pain and onto this new, cool sensation.
But surely a distraction isn't enough to actually ease your pain.
Only it is!
In studies of perceived pain and measurable blood flow, adding menthol to ice for pain relief made people feel better – plain and simple, proving that topical pain relievers work.
Capsaicin: A Powerful Topical Pain Reliever
Capsaicin also distracts the body from pain, only using heat instead of cold.
When compared to a placebo, the warmth of capsaicin is the undisputed winner, providing significantly greater pain relief time after time. Even when studied under placebo controlled, double blind conditions – the most strenuous, reliable testing conditions there are – capsaicin rose to the occasion, providing greater relief than any placebo could.
However, capsaicin also works in a second way – it communicates with the nerve endings, soothing them, which in turn, soothes your pain. This two-pronged approach to pain relief makes capsaicin one of the most effective topical pain relievers on the market!
