Pain gel

For which areas of application are pain gels suitable?

Pain gels can be used for pain of different types: acute, occasional or recurrent. The most common use of pain gels is for joint pain and muscle pain or tension.

Other uses include:

  • Strains
  • Bruises
  • Sprains
  • Rheumatic diseases, such as muscle inflammation or tendonitis
  • Degenerative diseases in the area of the spine

 

Pain gels can be applied to various parts of the body and can be effective for mild to moderate pain. More generally, pain gels can help reduce inflammation and swelling and promote pain relief.

How do pain gels work?

A pain gel works in a similar way to a pain pill. However, instead of distributing the active ingredient via the bloodstream in the body, the active ingredients penetrate directly into the affected area via the skin layers when a pain gel is used. This means that the pain gel can reach its target more quickly and take effect without first having to be transported to the pain location via the bloodstream.

Cooling or warming pain gel? These are the differences!

Depending on the pain you want to treat, different gels are recommended. A distinction is made between cooling and warming pain gels. Which of the two should be used depends on what kind of pain it is.

Polar Frost - The pain-relieving cooling gel 

When your body is injured, the damaged tissue becomes inflamed. This can cause pain, swelling or redness. Swelling is a natural reaction to the injury, and redness indicates inflamed tissue. Treatment with cold slows the swelling and immediately relieves pain. Polar Frost® provides a moderate, long-lasting reduction in skin temperature (5-6°C) for 4-6 hours without the risk of backlash or frostbite. If you see a bruise under the injured skin area, you should also use a cooling gel. The gel will cause the blood vessels to contract and your bleeding will be minimized. The gel can also help relieve pain in chronic injuries.

In addition, Polar Frost is based on aloe vera. The aloe vera seals the cooling menthol, giving the gel an even longer-lasting cooling effect. Thanks to the medicinal plant, the pain gel can have an anti-inflammatory effect and keeps the skin smooth and moist during treatment.

Polar Frost can help with the following injuries and illnesses:

  • muscle diseases and injuries such as strains, sprains and fractures
  • chronic neck, shoulder and low back pain
  • work-related muscle disorders cramps and spasms
  • bruises
  • sprains
  • sciatica pain syndrome
  • arthritis and related inflammation and pain
  • Osteoarthritis bursitis
  • Golfer's wrist
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis Elbow

Polar Heat – ideal for tension and strains

You can use the warming pain gel Polar Heat® in case of tension or strain. The active ingredients of the gel stimulate your blood circulation and thus ensure that your muscles relax. The effectiveness of the gel can last between 6 and 12 hours. Due to the increase in blood circulation, the risk of muscle strains is lower. Increased capillary blood flow brings more oxygen to tissues and cells, contributing to the healing process. This makes it ideal for treating dragging pain and chronic injuries, as well as joint pain.

For athletes and elite athletes, Polar Heat® is an excellent tool for preventing strains and muscle fiber tears and enhancing performance. For swelling and inflamed areas, a cooling gel should be used rather than a heat gel.

How is the pain gel applied correctly?

After you have located the area to be treated, apply a thin layer to the affected area. Reapply the cooling gel every three hours for 3-5 days.

The warming gel should be applied twice a day for 2-5 days. Test the product on a small area of the skin before the first application, as there may be varying levels of heat depending on your skin type.

It is important that you do not cover the areas you are treating with the gel. It is best to leave the gel on and then put on your clothes. In general, pain gel should not be used on open wounds.
