An application of Tiger Balm should sort that out :wink:

On a more serious note, does it actually do any good. I remember seeing one of these popular TV GP'y programs (the thing where a few doctors "investigate" a few things) and one item was about these types of treatments for muscle strains. Can't remember the details but the conclusion was that they don't help (I think they were testing Deep Heat or similar rather than Tiger Balm). Asked physios I've visited and they all say that all they do is distract you from the discomfort (and smell a lot). I've also tried those NSAID creams (hoping that applying them to the affected area might be more effective than treating the entire body with a pill) and found them (as well as the pills) completely ineffective. So I'm a big sceptic but would love to find something that helps.
