I recently started a new – tougher – workout plan. I needed to add more strength to my workouts and as with ANY new physical activity, when you push yourself, the muscle pain is sure to come! The next couple days after those squats were brutal!

According to Dr. Jeff Habert, a family physician in Thornhill, Ontario, long-lasting body pain may be more common as we get older, but it shouldn’t stop us from enjoying life and accomplishing all we want to.

There are a few things you can do to manage your muscle pain after you have pushed yourself hard during a workout!

Here are 3 tips for Dealing with Muscle Pain:
  • Keep Moving – After a tough workout or a long race, even walking up the stairs is awful! Even though you may want to curl up in bed, get moving! Even a nice walk around the block can help ease muscle pain.
  • Ice It – Icing your aches and pains can help reduce inflammation and ease pain. You can also take a warm bath or use a hot water bottle to help relax tight muscles.
  • Take Something for the Pain – Advil® 12 Hour is a fast-acting and long-lasting, non-prescription pain reliever. As the name suggests, just one Advil 12 Hour keeps working for up to 12 hours to help relieve long-lasting joint, body, or muscle pain. Now you can get back to your favorite summer activities and keep active!

Dr. Habert also says that research has found that a combination of treatment methods, including physiotherapy, massage therapy and medications, show the best results when managing long-lasting pain.

You can find Advil 12 Hour in your local pharmacy, and don’t forget to read the label or talk to your doctor to find out if Advil 12 Hour is right for you! You can also grab a $3 coupon at Advil.ca!!
