Cool relief with Sombra
Your chiropractor knows your skin will hurt when your insides have pain. That’s why chiropractors who know use Sombra. Sombra USA has been around since 1974 and have been making products that are used by chiropractors to help their patients on the road to recovery.
Sombra is normally applied directly to your skin in modest amounts. Sombra comes in a number of different forms, from spray to wipe-on patches to creams. It is a therapeutic ointment that works from the skin surface inward to help relieve general pain in the affected area that your chiropractor is currently treating.
The skin and the underlying tissue get aggravated by the injury beneath. As the body becomes irritated inside, the tissue surrounding the area gets affected as well. The lower layers of the skins start to swell and you start to see the redness in the skin that covers the injured area inside you.
No doubt, the injury gets worse as you try to rub the area for temporary pain relief. We all do it because we can’t help it. It hurts! We know that it is better to go see our chiropractor to help the situation than it is to try to fix it ourselves. But even if you’re really good about not rubbing the area where you hurt, the tissue is going to swell anyway, and that’s why Sombra can be such a big help.
How does Sombra work to relive your pain? There are three active ingredients: capsaicin, camphor and menthol. Capsaicin penetrates the skin to trigger soothing responses from the neurons that provide relief to the area that hurts. The skin will heat up once the capsaicin goes to work.
The skin gets cooled off when the camphor goes to work by pulling the heat off the skin. It works similarly to Vaporub by creating the cooling sensation as heat gets lifted away. The cool-down is important since the nerves are strongly stimulated by the capsaicin.
Finally, the skin gets a message from the menthol, which soothes the tender area. The patient gets a therapeutic bonus from the orange-peel extract that gives camphor its calming scent. There’s no medicinal smell when Sombra is applied.
Camphor also won’t dry out your skin. That’s because Camphor doesn’t contain any alcohol. Most medicinal skin creams contain alcohol which thins out the cream and evaporates rapidly. As the alcohol evaporates, it pulls moisture out of your skin. Sombra is a top-quality therapeutic ointment that is focused on making your skin feel good, not dry.
