Further Information

 

Ketoprofen works by blocking the effect of natural chemicals called cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes in order to reduce the production of prostaglandins.

Transdermal Ketoprofen has been shown to be very effective in reducing self-reported muscle soreness after repetitive muscle contraction, particularly after 48 hours. Systemic absorption of the drug is minimal and does not appear to have any effect on post exercise function.

Lignocaine is a very effective local anaesthetic to reduce the sensation of pain in the area. It is a sodium channel blocking agent that halts impulse conduction in the excitable neuronal tissues such as peripheral nerves and spinal roots. They cause widespread vasodilation, thereby anaesthetising the irritated nerve endings & interrupting the reflex pain arc.  The abnormal vasoconstriction associated with pain is neutralized by the partial blockade of the sympathetic nervous system by the local anaesthetic.

Therefore, combining Ketoprofen and Lignocaine in a synergistic base to facilitate its absorption into an affected area can result in very effective pain relief.
