Topical pain relief and muscle relaxant creams are very effective at managing ache, soreness, and swelling. That is because they deliver the active ingredients right to the core of the pain. Topical creams vary in efficacy based on ingredients, delivery mechanism, and application. Choosing the right muscle relaxant cream is very important, but so is how you apply it. Here are the steps to make sure that you get the maximum benefit out of your topical muscle relaxant cream:
1. Clean The Application Area
Lotions, dirt, and our skin’s natural oils can be a barrier to topical creams. So before applying, make sure to clean the area with soap and water. We recommend patting the area dry to make sure all the oils and dirt are completely removed.
2. Apply The Cream Directly To The Site
Many people put the cream in their hands and then apply it to the affected area. However, a quality topical cream will start absorbing immediately. So you may be working the active ingredients into your palms. Instead, apply the cream directly to where you experience pain. Follow the label instructions to determine the ideal amount to apply to each area.
3. Apply In Light Layers
A good idea is to apply in light layers, that way you can be sure that you are getting enough product and covering the entire area. Start by massaging the first layer of cream into the affected area with the palm of your hand. Be gentle, you don’t want to increase the pain or swelling in the area. Let it dry slightly, then apply the second layer. Repeat until your skin feels very soft and moisturized.
4. Let The Cream Dry Completely
Finally, you’ll want to make sure that you let the cream dry completely before you do anything else like cover the area with a compression bandage or clothing. That way you can avoid accidentally removing any of the cream.
5. Take Extra Precautions
Make sure that you don’t apply the cream to any open wounds or touch your eyes or face with the cream on your hand. Once you are done, make sure to wash your hand thoroughly to remove the excess cream. If you are taking any blood thinners, speak with your physician before using a topical cream.
