OST-SURGERY SWELLING AND BRUISING.
Arnica is widely believed to control bruising, reduce swelling and promote recovery after surgeries. 100% ARNICA MONTANA 500MG (LEAF & STEAM).
Arnica is used for bruises, sprains, muscle soreness, and muscle spams often associated with sports activity. Arnica is also used to treat muscular aches, joint pain, and arthritis. It is belived that arnica plant has anti-inflammatory properties.
Arnica Montana is useful for treating bruising and swelling associated with soft tissue injury. Inflammation is the result of trauma, injury or surgery that causes an excessive amount of blood to stretch the walls of the capillaries. Fluid and white blood cells escape from the capillaries into the spaces between cells in the surrounding area. The swelling that results causes stretching of the tissues and presses on the nerve endings causing pain and adding to the stiffness that may follow.
It is believed that Arnica Montana increases the flow of blood through the affected capillaries causing escaped fluids to be absorbed. The absorption of the fluids makes black and blue marks go away faster and reduces the swelling, relieving the pressure on nerve endings. This in turn, relieves the pain and stiffness. Arnica also stimulates white blood cells, which then help disperse material trapped in bruised tissue, muscles, and joints.
