Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs

Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs have been linked to fatalities. The use of prescription NSAIDs (Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs) is reported to be the 15th most common cause of death in the United States. In the last 3 decades 300,000 people
in the United States have died from GI complications due to NSAIDs (Wolf et al 1999).

A review paper published in the Annals of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine written by sports medicine physicians states, “We do not recommend their use (NSAIDs) for muscle injuries”.(Ziltener et al 2010) Here is
another quote from a paper pushed in The Open Rehabilitation Journal; “…NSAIDs are no longer recommended for chronic soft-tissue (ligament) injuries, and their use is cautioned in athletes who have ligament injuries.
(Hauser et al 2013)
