Ever heard of Arnica? Well I can tell you about it.
Arnica is a homeopathic remedy that can greatly reduce and relieve pain, bruising, and inflammation if used immediately after a wide range of traumas. It comes in a variety of forms from topical creams to heal and soothe your injuries from outside in, and pills to heal you from the inside out.
The Arnica Bump Stick is in a handy go-anywhere container — keep it in your purse or first aid kit.
You can also buy Arnica oil which is great for soothing sore muscles - use it for massages. There's also Arnica ointment, gel, or lotion if you have a bigger area that's hurt — you can rub it all over. My favorite is Topricin.
Arnica also comes in pill form which is great to take before surgery since it can help relieve pain and reduce swelling and bruising.
Fit's Tips: Keep a tube of Arnica in your gym bag. Use it on tired, stiff, or sore muscles before and after your workout.
