Title : Nutrition and supplements in rehabilitation program for pain treatment


Athletes during training and competition may get injured or feel fatigue and pain in the muscles skeletal system and mental overstrain. The use of conventional drugs is subject to doping control, unlike some herbal substances that are permitted for use. Non-athlete patients with pain may have many other comorbidities, and conventional medications may interact with their other medications.
The aim of our research was to determine how proven, effective and safe herbal extracts are when applied to athletes and rehabilitation pain patients.
Material and method: We used medical search data on two websites, www.pubmed.org and www.NCIH.com.usa. We evaluated our patients with NAS for pain and measuring ROM before and after treatment.
Results with discussion: 15 substances were analyzed in terms of evidentiary research, efficacy and safety in use. Topical application with sonophoresis of herbal gel, have significant reduction of pain and increase ROM in patient with Neck pain and knee osteoarthritis.
Conclusion: most of the substances already have a proven effect in reducing pain and inflammation (turmeric, ginger, polyphenols, bromelain, comfrey, golden root), when applied topically or taken orally, but for some there is evidence that they are not safe (arnica , willow, devil's claw, lord's vine).
Key words: musculoskeletal pain, herbal therapy, nutrition.
