Dr. Goldson’s Pain Cream now with Turmeric

Camphor and menthol are natural compounds that have been used for centuries by many different cultures due to their amazing healing powers. Camphor is taken from the Cinnamomum camphora tree and Menthol comes from mint plants, and together, they create a potent combination.

Menthol produces a calming effect as it works to alleviate discomfort by intercepting signals sent to the brain and altering the body’s perception of pain. It also functions as a counterirritant agent whereby minor irritation is generated in one area of the body in order to lessen irritation in another area. [Learn more at www.DrGoldson.com]

Camphor has many soothing and suppressive properties, making it ideal for reducing swelling, relieving muscle spasms, and treating nerve pain. When applied, it creates a cool sensation on the skin owed to the stimulation of sensory nerves that diminish pain and irritation. Camphor has been sampled in the development of several drugs and there is research to suggest that it can be a successful form of treatment for certain major diseases.

It’s no wonder these natural components have been utilized in traditional and modern medicine for ages as there seems to be no end to their therapeutic advantages. In today’s society, Camphor and Menthol can be found in topical analgesics, arthritis medication and many other products, providing much-needed aid to pain-stricken individuals.

Dr. Goldson’s Spine Joint and Muscle Cream taps into the powers of both substances and now, the beloved formula has been improved to include turmeric. Turmeric is a popular additive in Indian and Caribbean cuisine but its value extends way beyond flavor. One of its main ingredients is curcumin which possesses unbelievable health benefits for the brain—shown to prevent Alzheimer’s disease for instance—as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities.

The new Dr. Goldson’s Spine Joint and Muscle Cream harnesses the benefits of Menthol, Camphor, Methyl Salicylate Technology and Turmeric to deliver more effectual, helpful, and penetrative relief. It targets even the most nagging pain that can sting, needle and pester joints and muscles throughout the day. Critical areas such as the neck, back, shoulders, knees and ankles can finally get the ease they deserve.

From the Ground Up!

Goldson Spine North Lauderdale welcomes custom orthotic technology.

A reasonably active person will walk an average of 110,000 miles throughout their lifetime. That’s the equivalent of running the New York City Marathon about 4,200 times. The truth is, our feet provide tremendous support day in and day out, taking us where we want to go and acting as a natural shock absorber in every step. Unfortunately, we don’t fully appreciate the hard work they do.

Given the daily stresses on our feet, it’s no surprise that roughly 80% of adults in the U.S. have foot complaints. Poor foot health can actually be an indicator of bad overall health and can even be a sign of serious underlying issues. Therefore, it’s important to analyze and understand your feet.

Each human foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, 19 muscles, and over a hundred tendons and ligaments. Additionally, the arches in the foot lend support to essential joints in the body, such as the ankles, knees, hips, and the spine. Two of the most common foot problems are plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. The terms are often used together, but they are not interchangeable. Plantar fasciitis is mainly caused by inflammation of the connective tissue that spans the length of the foot—from the heel to the toes, while heel spurs are associated with pain and soreness originating from the heel bone—the back of the foot. However, if left untreated, plantar fasciitis can result in heel spurs.

Anybody can suffer from these ailments, though some categories of people are more at risk than others. For instance, women are more prone to develop plantar fasciitis than men, as well as those who stay on their feet for extended periods. Other major contributing factors include improper or ill-fitting footwear and excessive weight gain.

These disorders can be very agonizing and can disrupt a person’s daily lifestyle as activities like walking or standing become difficult due to discomfort in various areas of the foot. Thankfully, there is a proven method of treatment. Orthotics have been shown to supplement the foot’s arches, absorb ground shock, reduce the strain on other joints, and help circumvent future injuries. Further, they can change the weight distribution in your stance and improve how the musculoskeletal system operates.

Goldson Spine Rehabilitation Center is thrilled to announce the arrival of the Foot Levelers 3D scanner at our North Lauderdale location. This newly installed piece of technology will examine you from the ground up; identifying issues with imbalance, points of abnormal pressure, misalignments in the body, and ultimately creates a shoe insert tailored to the specific needs of each patient.

Over-the-counter insoles have its benefits but are mass produced and don’t deliver the kind of specialized care your feet crave. Although many people experience the same foot conditions, it doesn’t mean every foot is the same, and it certainly doesn’t mean everybody experiences pain in the same manner. So, your orthotics should be just as unique as you are.

Stop doing your feet a disservice. Come to the Goldson Spine North Lauderdale office today for your FREE foot scan and get yourself fitted with a custom-made orthotic from the Foot Levelers 3D scanner. It’ll change the way you view your feet and improve your general well-being.

Your feet will thank you!
