About Myolaxin Ointment 15 gm

Myolaxin Ointment 15 gm is a combination medicine used to relieve pain and inflammation associated with musculoskeletal disorders, arthritis, back pain, sore muscles, joint pain, sprain, rheumatoid arthritis and leg cramps. Musculoskeletal pain could occur due to arthritis, osteoporosis, fractures, dislocations, problems with the bone structure or injury to the bones, joints, tendons, muscles and ligaments. Arthritis is a joint disease in which the two ends of the joints come together due to the breakdown of a protective covering called cartilage.

Myolaxin Ointment 15 gm contains Capsaicin, Methyl salicylate, Eucalyptus oil, Camphor and Menthol. Methyl salicylate works by blocking chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation. Capsaicin exerts an analgesic effect by blocking the pain messengers to the nerves. Eucalyptus oil helps in reducing inflammation. Camphor and Menthol provide a cooling sensation by dilating the blood vessels, followed by an analgesic effect. Together, Myolaxin Ointment 15 gm helps in providing relief from pain.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Musculoskeletal pain: Musculoskeletal pain affects the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. It can be acute or chronic, can be localised or wide-spread. The pain can be mild or severe enough to interfere with your daily routine. Musculoskeletal pain could occur due to arthritis, osteoporosis, fractures, dislocations, problems with the bone structure or injury to the bones, joints, tendons, muscles and ligaments. Symptoms of musculoskeletal pain include stiffness, swelling, redness, weakness, muscle spasms or twitching, trouble moving the affected area, soreness, cracking or popping sound at the joints.

Osteoarthritis: It is a joint disease in which the two ends of the joints come together due to the breakdown of a protective covering called cartilage. Due to the absence of this protective covering, the joints rub against each other, leading to pain and stiffness. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, inflammation and tenderness.

Rheumatoid arthritis: It is an auto-immune disease (the body's immune system attacks its tissue) which leads to joint pain and damage. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include pain, swelling, stiffness, deformities and loss of joint function.
