UNDERSTANDING PAIN
UNDERSTANDING PAIN

We think of pain as an uncomfortable, unpleasant feeling but it’s our body’s way of signaling that something is not right within us. Pain can be steady, throbbing, aching, stabbing or pinching in nature. It can cause physical, mental or emotional discomfort. It might sound trivial, but the best way of treating pain is actually avoiding it. Pain can be caused by many different reasons. Some of these reasons can be avoided. For example, a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet, adequate exercise and sleep can help us to get less headaches and tensions. Yoga and other relaxation techniques help us reduce stress. Home remedies can also be used in pain therapy. For example, ice packs are used in sports injuries or sprains, while a warm pack is often used for colds or menstrual pain.

However lifestyle changes or home remedies are not always sufficient to combat pain quickly, effectively and long-term lasting. It is also usually not possible to interrupt our everyday life because of pain. Pain becomes particularly troublesome if it hinders you from daily activities.

Many different painkillers are available for self-therapy. Due to their analgesic effect, these drugs enable us to cope with our everyday life without pain and also to enjoy our leisure time. When you are suffering from pain or fever it can be a challenge to choose the right treatment for your condition that will provide quick relief. Thus, it is important to understand the differences between painkillers.

Pain and its cause are manifold and as diverse as the persons who suffer from it. Therefore, Brufen® offers different products with several strengths and dosage forms specially adapted to individual needs.
