Pain and Inflammation

 
Osteoarticular pathology, or rheumatic disease, encompasses conditions such as arthrosis, arthritis and musculoskeletal disorders such as osteoarthritis.

Inflammation is a complex process that our body relies on to protect itself. It is a natural reaction of the body to the injury of cells or tissues that allows us to mitigate and repair the damage as quickly as possible. Inflammation and pain are often conditions that go hand in hand, as is the case, for instance, in some problems of the joints and muscles or in the case of a headache, backache, toothache, or other forms of pain.

In the case of inflammation (or phlogosis) of the muscles or joints, the most common symptoms are heat, swelling or redness of the injured part, associated with pain and a gradual impairment of the body’s functions. In the case of headaches or migraines, different parts of the face and head can be affected. In cluster headaches, which are more common among men, the eyes, cheekbones and temples are the parts of the body most affected, and the pain associated with them is very intense and short-spanned. A tension headache, instead, involves the entire face or head and the pain is of variable intensity. Migraines, instead, which are more common among women, manifest themselves on one side of the head with a more or less intense pulsating pain and are often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, intolerance toward the light and noise.

For these reasons, controlling a person’s inflammatory response is a key element in the fight against pain.

Dompé has developed advanced know-how in the treatment of pain and inflammation and today provides prescription and OTC drugs that can help to combat pain and inflammation linked to a number of conditions, from the classic headache to joint and muscle pain associated with contractures.
