Pain Management And Recovery CBD
Over the last few years, Cannabidiol — more commonly referred to as CBD — has become a widespread, respected tool for many ailments. It’s one of more than 100 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, and it offers dozens of powerful, all natural therapeutic effects.
These days, you can find CBD in many different forms, like seltzer water, gummies, bath bombs, and other body products. At MOTUS Specialists Physical Therapy Orange County, we use a Resilience CBD products to provide faster, all-natural pain control and recovery to our patients.
What is the Resilience CBD lotion?
Resilience is a company that makes CBD products that are geared towards the active and the athletic. They offer some of the most innovative CBD products on the market, and their CBD lotion has proven to be a great therapeutic tool at MOTUS. Resilience CBD Sports Cream is made of rich, high-quality ingredients, like Nano Emulsified Hemp CBD, coconut oil, aloe vera, and lemongrass. This product is made to nourish the skin while providing the many benefits of CBD.
How does it work?
The human body has what’s called an endocannabinoid system, a system that creates enzymes called endocannabinoids which communicate with cells in the body. Through this communication, these enzymes help to control stress, sleeping patterns, cognitive abilities, and inflammation. CBD is a phytocannabinoid that assists our bodies with this process by augmenting the endocannabinoids our body is already making.
When you ingest CBD via gummies or a CBD beverage, the CBD goes into your bloodstream and gives your body’s cannabinoids the boost they need to help with full body recovery and relaxation.
Topical application, as with our CBD lotion, provides relief to a specific area. It allows the CBD to supplement localized cannabinoid receptors wherever the lotion is applied. That makes it a great tool for people with specific points of injury or pain.
Some people who have yet to try CBD products are hesitant for fear that this hemp product will affect their perception. However, CBD is not at all psychoactive. The Resilience CBD lotion was designed specifically to do nothing more than enhance athletic performance and overall well being.
What are the benefits of CBD lotion?
Because it can enhance the body’s natural ability to regulate stress, sleep, and inflammation, CBD lotion offers a number of benefits applicable to many patients. The biggest, broadest appeal of our Resilience CBD lotion is that it serves as a safe, noninvasive tool to alleviate pain of many types. Patients with stiff joints or sore muscles can find instant relief from their discomfort by applying CBD lotion. CBD itself has been studied as a treatment for general pain and specific chronic conditions.
In 2017, a group performed a study on rats to determine whether the anti-inflammation properties of CBD could be used to block pain from osteoarthritis. They found that CBD treatment reduced inflammation and prevented joint pain
. The conclusion was that CBD can serve as a safe, therapeutic tool for osteoarthritis joint neuropathic pain.1As an athlete, using CBD lotion as part of your training can allow you to push through soreness so that you can reach your performance goals and keep up with the activities you love.
Recovery is an important part of training and conditioning, and both professional athletes and weekend warriors will find that CBD lotion can enhance the process. When your muscles work out, they undergo tiny tears.
The body quickly heals these tears, which is what causes muscle growth. However, these tears are also the cause of delayed onset muscle soreness. Your muscles need time to heal in between workouts. Our CBD lotion can improve the process with its anti-inflammatory effects.
Tension relief is also an important benefit from the CBD lotion, since it allows us to put the therapeutic tool to use in our offices for regular physical therapy patients. The safe and non-invasive nature of this topical analgesic makes our CBD lotion an excellent supplement to many of our therapeutic treatments.
