Treating Musculoskeletal Conditions

Treatment Options

After you have been diagnosed with acute musculoskeletal pain, there are many options that you and your doctor may consider to help you find relief. Your doctor may prescribe a full program including physical therapy. In addition, your doctor may prescribe a skeletal muscle relaxant. Skeletal muscle relaxants can be used to treat your acute musculoskeletal pain.

Skeletal Muscle Relaxants Help Relieve the Symptoms of Acute Musculoskeletal Discomfort

Skeletal muscle relaxants work on your body's central nervous system to relieve the symptoms of acute musculoskeletal discomfort. These agents do not act directly on the muscles but act on nerve endings. Skeletal muscle relaxants have been shown in some studies to offer superior relief for musculoskeletal discomfort than aspirin or acetaminophen.

A common side effect associated with skeletal muscle relaxants is drowsiness. SOMA® 250 mg has been proven effective in providing relief associated with acute, painful musculoskeletal conditions with less drowsiness than SOMA® 350 mg. To get the relief you need with less drowsiness make sure your pharmacist fills your prescription for SOMA 250 mg. Accept no compromises.
