Just like with food and cosmetics, your starting point with any pain cream should be on the back of the tube, box or bottle. The claims or features made on the front do not tell the story. The list of “active” or “medicinal” ingredients on the back tell you what you really want to know.

Health Canada requires these ingredients to be listed in order from most to least and the actual percentage needs to be clear. Products that do not have this on the bottle do not have a sufficient percentage of the ingredient for the body to react to. In that case you will find the ingredient in a long list of non-medicinal or other ingredients or the entire bottle is non-active, so it just says “Ingredients”. These too are listed from most to least in Canada. In other jurisdictions, they are often listed alphabetically.

Analgesics with medically active levels of their ingredients will also have either an NPN (Natural Product Number) or a DIN (Drug Identification Number). These numbers can be searched on Health Canada’s website to assure the product is legal for sale in Canada. Listed products are subject to batch inspections and other regulations to ensure their continued safety.

Typical Ingredients found in topical analgesics

For our purposes, we will not list ingredients that require a prescription. We will also not list any NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) as these have potential side effects which most hands-on therapists are uncomfortable with.

Menthol

Menthol is the most common ingredient you will find in topical analgesics. Patients will experience cool, warm or cool first and then warming but typically all patients experience pain relief. Traditional menthol is made from Peppermint or mint oils. Most analgesics today use l-menthol as it is more readily available.

As a topical agent, menthol stimulates nociceptors and then desensitizes them. Topically applied menthol may also activate central analgesic pathways.

Arnica Montana

Arnica is probably one of the best-known herbs worldwide for its use in natural analgesics. Arnica not only relieves pain, it is also listed with Health Canada as providing effective relief from inflammation. Read the label, as this ingredient is often listed on the front of bottles without sufficient quantity to be active.

MSM (Methylsulfonymethane)

Methylsulfonylmethane is a naturally occurring organosulfur compound. Like Arnica, it has the dual benefits of managing both pain and inflammation.

Camphor

Camphor is used topically to help relieve pain and also as a topical antiseptic. Like menthol, Camphor stimulates nociceptors and then desensitizes them.

Capsaicin

Capsaicin is an active component of chili peppers and just like eating chilies, patients either love it or are hypersensitive to it. They may experience excessive redness, discomfort, blistering or experience what they perceive to be an unpleasant burning sensation. So it is best to test it in a small region first. For patients that love it, Capsaicin offers warm pain relief.

Ingredients vs Formula

ingredients is a great start for picking your analgesic but it is not the whole story. A great overall pain relief formula assures these ingredients are combined correctly and in proportions that work well together. I am sure you can all imagine baking a cake. Even if we all start with the exact same ingredients, we may end up with drastically different outcomes.

Which analgesic is the best?

That question is a little like asking, which food is best. Just like some people prefer sweet over salty snacks, patients respond differently to the various ingredients. There are definitely market leaders with good quantities of ingredients and well balanced formulas but if you are looking for a single solution you may be doing your patients a dis-service.

Some patients prefer the warming formulas, while others love the cool pain relief. Even amongst a single formula, patients’ have preferences in format such as roll-ons, squeeze tubes, pumps or sprays. That is not to say however, that you need to invest in an entire cabinet full of analgesics. You can start with a small assortment of either formulas and/or formats.

Getting Started

If you are just getting started with offering topical analgesics to your patients, here are some of the key elements you may want to look for:

  • Ingredients your are comfortable with
  • Brands with medically relevant percentages of these ingredients
  • Brands that offer sample sizes that your patients can try before they buy. These are often free with your purchase of patient sizes.
  • Brands that are exclusive to healthcare and not readily available on retail shelves

Fortunately we have done much of the work for you. Visit our ANALGESICS section. All of the products listed are approved for sale in Canada and are amongst the most popular brands chosen by clinics in Canada. We recommend you try the formulas for yourself before recommending them or applying them to your patients.
