Treatment for Pain Relief


General painkillers (e.g. paracetamol and/or ibuprofen) can help to keep some kinds of pain under control. Ibuprofen is a drug that is both anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving.
If you are unable to take these painkillers, then pain-relieving skin gel could provide a more focused pain relief. Some of IPSA’s clients respond well to products providing topical heat or can ease their pain by applying a cold treatment. Ask your IPSA pharmacist for advice.

Drug-free treatments

Magnetic therapy bangles and bracelets that contain magnets are an alternative form of pain relief. These bracelets produce a magnetic field to harmlessly penetrate your bones and skin tissues, thus helping by stimulating your blood circulation.
