HOW TO USE MUSCLECARE

Dr. Chris, the founder of MuscleCare, created protocols to help anyone with the most common types of pain seen in the Centre for Fitness, Health and Performance.  They will make it easy for you to get proven immediate pain relief by using the roll-on when you are in pain and after you are out of pain to manage the weaker tissues and help them heal.

 

MuscleCare is formulated to help your body heal faster when you follow this protocol and incorporate the roll-on into your daily routine. Over one million people have been enjoying the pain, inflammation and spasm relief benefits from MuscleCare since 2010.

 

This is your guide to using MuscleCare to target your painful areas and beat the pain!  In addition, I encourage you to stretch for 15-30 minutes a day and walk no less than 30 minutes per day for optimal health.

 

This is set up into Mild Pain (less than a 5/10) and Moderate to Severe Pain (6-10/10) on the pain scale. 0 is no pain & 10 is the worst.

 

Acute means “new” pain usually less than 6 months in duration. Chronic means “old” pain usually there for more than 6 months.

 

 116 million Americans have chronic pain. Let’s work together to reduce this number and help people live life to the fullest.

Lower Back Pain


Up to 85 percent of working adults can expect to experience low back pain at some point in their life - especially pregnant mothers. Did you know that MuscleCare is safe to use in pregnancy?




Neck Pain


Neck pain is typically the result of trauma, inflammation and repetitive stress on related areas of the body.




Headaches and Migraines


Majority of migraines can stem from other issues in the body such as neck and shoulder pains. Musclecare can help ease the pain of migraines. Apply to front, side and back of neck. In particular, apply to under the skull and to top of shoulders.




Arthritis or Osteoarthritis


MuscleCare has the ability to reduce the pain caused by the swelling and inflammation of the joints caused by both Arthritis and Osteoarthritis.




Fibromyalgia


Fibromyalgia is chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and tenderness in localized areas. Generally, fibromyalgia involves pain in the arms, torso and legs, so wherever your pain is, we recommend hitting all of those spots at the same time.




Diabetic Neuropathy


Diabetic Neuropathy is the result of high blood sugar injuring the nerve fibres in the body. Commonly occurs in the legs and feet.




Frozen Shoulder


Also known as adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder is a painful consistent stiffness of the shoulder joint. Normal shoulder movements are made extremely difficult.




Golfers Elbow or Tennis Elbow


The nature in the way our elbows bend and stretch in both tennis and golf can cause abrupt or subtle injury of the muscle and tendon area around the outside of the elbow. Must apply to the lower neck (front side and back).




Knee Pain


The complexity in the structure of the knee makes it very difficult to diagnose exactly what is causing discomfort in that area. However, Musclecare has been proven to aid any muscle and joint pains that commonly plague the knee. Always apply to the lower back, as well.




Leg Cramps


Leg cramps are either caused by sitting awkwardly for a prolonged period of time or trauma to the leg muscle or lower back nerve irritation.




Other Chronic Pain (Over 6 Months)


Persistent chronic pain can take a large physical and emotional toll. Musclecare can help ease the shooting, burning, and aching pains and strains that you are experiencing. If chronic arm pain, apply to neck and arms. If chronic leg pain, also apply to lower back. If it’s chronic lower back, we suggest applying to your hamstrings, as well.




Plantar Fasciitis


Plantar Fasciitis is the pain felt in the the plantar fascia is the ligament that connecting the heel bone to your toes.




Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)


Repetitive strain injuries are the result in the impairment of muscles and tendons caused by repetitive actions. If you strain the shoulders or arms, also apply to the neck. If you strain the legs or feet, also apply to your lower back.




Sciatica


Sciatica refers to any pain affecting the back, hip, and outer side of the leg, that is the result of the compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back. Make sure to apply to lower back, sacral joints, and follow the path of your pain down your leg.




Shoulder Stiffness


Regular stretches and applying Musclecare’s pain relief formulae as follows is the best remedy for curing stiff shoulders. Apply to lower neck (front, back, and side) and all around shoulders/upper arms for best results.




A Sprain (Any Area)


Unlike strains, sprains result in the stretching or tearing of ligaments. Sprains typically occur in the ankle. If you sprain the shoulders or arms, also apply to the neck. If you sprain the legs or feet, also apply to your lower back.




A Strain (Any Area)


Usually occurring during physical activities or exercise, the pain can result from the simple stretch of a muscle or tendon up to a complete tear. If you strain the shoulders or arms, also apply to the neck. If you strain the legs or feet, also apply to your lower back.




RSI (Video Game Related)


Repetitive stress injuries in the thumbs and hands especially are all too common to professional gamers. In extreme cases, hardcore gamers can be subject to arthritis.
