Kangdi pain relief patches contain two active ingredients, levomenthol and methyl salicylate, which is a derivative of salicylic acid. The patches are applied to relieve aches and pains associated with sprains and strains of muscles or joints, for example backache, neck or shoulder pain.Methyl salicylate has anti-inflammatory and painkilling actions. It works in two ways. Firstly, it is a counter-irritant, which when applied to the skin causes redness and produces a sensation of heat. This heat sensation distracts the brain from the original pain and therefore reduces your perception of the pain. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect that helps to reduce any inflammation in the muscles or joints.
pain relief patches, also called fentanyl or transdermal patches, work much like oral pain relief medications by releasing small amounts of narcotic-based medicines in timed doses. Unlike oral pain relievers, however, the medicine in transdermal patches does not directly and immediately enter the body. First, small amounts accumulate on the surface of the skin, until there is enough to prompt absorption.As with other medicines, patients follow important safety protocols when using transdermal patches. These pain relief patches must be applied to skin free of alcohol and oil. Patches should be removed after 3 days. Although they contain similar medicines as oral medications, transdermal patches should never be consumed.
After carefully scrutinizing pain relief patches, it is a good pain relief product for both muscle and joint pain. However, it is just for minor aches and pains and doesn’t really work for severe pain of the muscles and joints. Also, it only offers temporary relief. It is still a product worth trying but there are better products for moderate to severe joint and muscle pain.
