Anti-inflammatory Medication & Treatment

How Does Anti-Inflammatory Medication Work?

Anti-inflammatories work by blocking the production of specific chemicals in the body that cause inflammation. To do this, they block the effects created by Cox-1 and Cox-2 enzymes in the body. These chemicals play a key role in the manufacturing of prostaglandins. By blocking them, anti-inflammatories stop your body from creating prostaglandins, which limits the body from creating an inflammation response that can lead to swelling and pain.

Conditions Treated by Anti-Inflammatory Medication

All anti-inflammatories trigger specific areas of swelling and inflammation that cause discomfort and pain. The most common anti-inflammatories, NSAIDs, are used in the treatment of pain and inflammation. Motrin and Advil are two of the most popular examples. Anti-inflammatory medication can be used to assist eczema, bullous disease, etc. All anti-inflammatories trigger specific areas of swelling that cause pain.
