The Science of Sports Rubs

Science of Topical Analgesics (Sports Rubs)

Since the beginning of time, people have used natural compounds on their bodies—like eucalyptus, aloe, and honey—for their purposed medicinal values. But it wasn’t until 1962 when researchers Ronald Melzack and Patrick Wall postulated the Gate Control Theory of Pain, which explains how the brain perceives when a body part is injured. Their findings explain how the brain not only perceives pain, but is able to differentiate the amount of pain you feel. In 1965, their groundbreaking theory on pain was published in Science Magazine in an article called “Pain Mechanisms: A New Theory.” There are many theories on pain and how the brain perceives it, but the Gate Control Theory of Pain does a nice job in explaining why topical analgesics, especially Ares Sports Rub, are so effective in reducing and/or eliminating pain caused by arthritis, muscle and tendon strains from overuse, backache, and bursitis.

Simply, human beings use the sense of pain as a “warning system” to let us know when a part of our body is injured. Pain is usually due to damaged or hurt tissues in the body. It is the body’s natural response to have pain when something is hurt, such as in arthritic joints, strained muscles and tendons, and other inflammatory conditions in which the side effect is pain. Ares Sports Rub blocks pain signals going from the injured body part to the brain, replacing them with calming cooling and deep heating sensations.

Ares Sports Rub is a topical analgesic cream that contains a proprietary blend of 100% all-natural industry standard active and inactive ingredients that provide long lasting all-natural pain relief. In essence, Ares Sports Rub closes the “gate” on pain associated with arthritis, muscular and tendinous strains, backache, and bursitis, and opens the “gate” to pain-free living. Ares Sports Rub is 100% all-natural and made in the United States. It goes on strong and lasts for hours. That’s why Ares Sports Rub is The Warrior In Pain Relief!
