How Does Emu Oil Help with Muscle and Joint Relief?

In everyday life, at some point, we have to deal with our body’s aches and pains.

Whether it be a sore back, aching knees,  or you suffer from conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, RSI or sciatica we quite often would take paracetamol, prescribed medication or apply a topical gel or cream to help us out.

In Australia, people found that emu oil is a natural anti-inflammatory as well as having many other benefits (more about that here). It then later became noticeable that emu oil was providing other benefits to the body due to the vitamins and omegas found within.

How can Emu oil help our muscles and joints?

Emu oil has a deeply soothing effect on inflammation. Its anti-inflammatory aspects are one of the better-studied properties of Emu oil but did you know it also has:

More than skin deep

Emu oil does not only help to assist surface level inflammation. Due to its thin oil consistency, it is able to penetrate the layers of the skin working accessing the muscles and joints.

Emu oil contains no phosphorus molecules

Our skin is phospholipid deficient, which means there’s no phosphorus in our skin. It will not let anything containing a phosphorus molecule penetrate through it. Anytime you put anything on your skin that is phospholipid deficient, or has no phosphorus, it penetrates right through.

Emu oil is a non-polar monounsaturated fatty acid as well which means that nonpolar fatty acids move through cells more easily. It also has short-chain fatty acids like most animal fats. However, Emu Oil acts like a long-chain fatty acid similar to most plant oils. Emu oil is also non-comedogenic, meaning that when applied it will not block pores as is penetrates quickly and deeply into the skin

Not just for a quick fix

Most pain in the muscle and joints is caused by overworked muscles, injuries, sport or work-related activities. In some cases, muscle and joint pain will subside within a few days. But for some people who suffer from conditions such as arthritis, RSI and sciatica these muscles and joint pains are reoccurring and need regular treatment in order to help the body function.

Most of us do not want to be taking pain killers on a long-term or regular basis. So this is when Emu Oil can be a great alternative. Especially when coupled with a massage. The massage element will help release tension in those muscles and joints but combined with Emu oil this allows the anti-inflammatory aspects to work into the body.

Emu oil may provide all the benefits that are needed to help relieve aches and pain without having to take daily pain killers or anti-inflammatory medicines such as ibuprofen.

So from common joint issues to muscle soreness and ongoing chronic pain. Emu Oil can provide instant and long-term relief to symptoms to lessen or remove the need for "traditional" pain relief medicines.

Is Emu Oil good for Arthritis?

For many Arthritis is a daily struggle. A struggle to get out of bed, a struggle to walk or even a struggle to complete simple daily tasks we come across.

Often Arthritis is associated with the older generation, however, this is not the case. In the UK over 10 million people suffer from Arthritis and we can be affected by Arthritis at any age, including children.

So what is Arthritis?

Arthritis simply means ‘inflammation of the joints’, it can be crippling and painful and often expensive due to the prescription medication being prescribed for suffers. However, there are negative side effects to using this medication and ingredients are not natural having other effects on the body meaning more medications being prescribed.

There are two types of common Arthritis;

Since the discovery of Emu oil in the mid-1800’s it has been found that Emu oil helps inflammation and provides relief for aching muscles and joints.

So why is Emu oil good for Arthritis?

Today the use of Emu oil is becoming more popular as we look for natural alternatives to aid in treating a variety of conditions and provide a natural pain relief. When massaged into the skin the Emu oil saturates all underlying tissues and enables muscle and joints to be reached becoming more effective than applying a topical gel or using medicines such as ibuprofen and paracetamol! Arthritis suffers will benefit from using Emu oil as its natural properties not only help assist with inflammation but also help aid the reduction of tension, swelling and provide relief from aching muscles and joints.

Massage, sports and me : A professional testimonial - Why I use Emu Products?

Here at Lorem, we are always interested in what our customers have to say about our products. The feedback that we receive is a key factor in us getting it 100% right in what you want.

We spoke with one of our customers, Fiona McLean, who not only uses the products for herself but also uses them for her clients here’s what Fiona had to say;

"As a Holistic and Sports Therapist in my business One2One Complementary Therapies I am always looking for products that will assist my clients and I am so glad that I found yours. I first came across them at the Great Dorset Steam Fair. I suffer from Fibromyalgia and was having issues with my shoulder so I decided to try some of the Emu balms for myself as I had nothing to lose other than the pain if it worked. To my surprise, it actually really did help reduce the pain in my shoulder and I knew then that as a therapist this could also help my clients.

I will continue to use the Emu oil products and continue to recommend them to others as I’m very happy to say I’ve found a product that really works well!

My absolute favourite go-to product has to be the Emu balm. For myself as I suffer from Fibromyalgia I use this to rub into any areas that are playing up, but also find with having Neuralgia the balm rubbed into my right leg helps to ease the pain. It enables me to work throughout the day without any pain and I always carry a small pot of the balm around with me if I need to reapply.

I always encourage all my clients to try the Emu Balm, I personally wouldn’t recommend any products that I did not believe worked and I am so happy to find your products because wholeheartedly can say these really do work.

My absolute favourite go-to product has to be the Emu balm. For myself as I suffer from Fibromyalgia I use this to rub into any areas that are playing up

As a therapist, I use the products to assist with easing the pain for my clients. I work closely with the local wheelchair rugby club ‘The Dorset Destroyers’ and they have found the balm help them before, during and after their game, so much so they have now purchased the Emu balm to keep in their team medical bag. I am also the sports therapist for Lytchett Minster RFC and a pot of balm is always carried to any game in my pitch side bag for dealing with the odd knocks and bruises. The majority of users through the ‘Dorset Destroyers’ use it in conjunction with their medication but some use it instead of their medication and this proves how effective a product it is.

I have also used the Emu oil on some clients who suffer from Psoriasis and they find it works, leaving their skin soothed. It lasts a long time and doesn’t leave their skin feeling oily as the Emu oil is absorbed quickly into the skin".
