Emu Oil for Muscle Pain

According to WiseGeek.com (clear answers for common questions), muscle inflammation “is a condition characterized by swelling, stiffness, non-specific pain, and muscle soreness or weakness.” This may be caused by a variety of factors, including auto-immune diseases. “In the absence of an autoimmune disease, most cases of simple muscle inflammation can be attributed to overexertion while exercising or participating in recreational sports.”

Regardless of the cause, the stiffness and pain resulting from the inflammation is often debilitating, if not limiting to the daily activities of living. While various remedies are offered, including ice and heat, a topical application of a muscle rub is often helpful. In fact, many rubs offer the hot and cold sensations to provide a numbing cool sensation, as well as increased blood circulation from the heat.

Emu oil is now added to many topical muscle creams due to its anti-inflammatory properties, as well as its transdermal properties. It has the ability to penetrate the skin and go deep into the muscles, while serving as a healing agent, AND as a carrier for other healing components of the muscle rub.

Emu oil alone is incredibly effective as well. In fact in an experiment by researchers at UMass Lowell, “fish oil reduced the thickness caused by inflammation in mice by 55 percent; emu oil by 70 percent.” While they are cautious to note that experiments in mice might have different results than in humans, but they are encouraged by the results.
