A recent study shows that Traumeel®, a topical pain medicine made of 12 natural ingredients (out of 14 actives), is as effective as a current standard therapy, 1% diclofenac gel, in reducing pain and improving function in adults with ankle sprain injuries. The findings, from the Traumeel® in Acute Ankle Sprain Study (TAASS), were recently highlighted in the online International Journal of Clinical Practice as well as an issue of Current Medical Research and Opinion, and first reported at the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) conference in June 2012. Based on the findings from TAASS and other studies, as well as their personal experience with Traumeel®, a group of international experts developed an algorithm for treating both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions that includes Traumeel® along with complementary and alternative medicine, NSAIDs and non-drug therapies. The algorithm also includes dosing frequency and duration of Traumeel® topical, oral and injected medicines.
