If you've kept up with the blog, you know I have some awesome rib cartilage problems. Skiing is a cruel mistress at times, but I believe the trade off is roughly worth it. My sports med doc gave me Flector patches, a diclofenac NSAID patch system. They are the bee's knee's. That's saying a lot right now, since 40+% of bees are dying. That's sad.
With any NSAID, their are cardiovascular, liver, and stomach risks. Consult your physician, of course. I'm just saying that they are a great way to avoid the whole swallowing pills. You get to slap a patch right where it hurts, and avoid the whole stomach.
Like I said, TALK TO YOUR DOC FIRST. Just because it worked for my injury, doesn't mean it will help you.
