Pain, a sensory experience
Pain, is a sensory experience that may be described as the unpleasant awareness of a noxious stimulus or bodily harm. Individuals experience pain from multiple hurts and aches including Arthritis, Bursitis, muscle aches, sports injuries, sprains, strains and occasionally through more serious injuries or illnesses. For scientific and clinical purposes, pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage”
The pain we experience is highly subjective to each and every one of us. A definition that is widely used in nursing was first given as early as 1968 by Margo McCaffery: “‘Pain is whatever the experiencing person says it is, existing whenever he says it does”.
ArthArrestTM Topical Analgesic combines capsaicin with the vasodilator methyl nicotinate, together, this means greater arthritis pain relief, faster and longer lasting.
Arthritis Relief, FAST!
When applied topically, methylnicotinate dilates the capillaries at the affected area and relieves pain immediately through counterirritation, while capsaisin relieves pain through a cumulative effect. In other words, the more you use it, the better it works. Capsaicin (a derivative of hot peppers) appears to reduce the amount of a natural chemical known as substance P, which is present in painful joints. Substance P is believed to be involved in two processes central to arthritis: the release of enzymes that produce inflammation and the transmission of pain impulses from the joints to the central nervous system. By blocking the production and release of substance P, capsaicin can reduce the pain associated with arthritis as well as dampen the transmission of pain messages to the brain.
