How Traumeel® can help you

  • Inflammation is a complex, multifactorial process, which is essential to tissue repair, e.g. after muscle or joint injury. However, excessive inflammation can cause pain and be detrimental to recovery.

  • Cytokines serving as messenger signals within the immune system of the body can either increase (pro-inflammatory cytokines) or reduce (anti-inflammatory cytokines) inflammation.

  • Imbalance of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines can lead to excessive and prolonged inflammation and pain.

  • Traumeel® restores the balance of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokine activity.

Research findings

Traumeel® has proven ability to relieve pain and inflammation

According to controlled clinical trials, Traumeel® can reduce pain and inflammation of different causes and at different sites in the body, for instance:

Acute ankle sprain

Acute ankle sprain

A recent large-scale study has shown that Traumeel® cream & gel was as effective as diclofenac in pain reduction and functional improvement in the treatment of acute ankle sprains.1 Compared with a placebo, Traumeel® cream was an effective treatment for activity-related ankle sprains, significantly improving mobility and reducing pain.2

Acute musculoskeletal injury

Acute musculoskeletal injury

Compared with a placebo, Traumeel® cream was significantly more effective in restoring muscle function and reducing pain from musculoskeletal injuries.3

Tendon pain

Tendon pain

Compared with diclofenac (an NSAID), Traumeel® cream reduced pain and achieved a significantly faster return to normal activities.4
