Virginia Swimming Safety-Gram
"Take Caution with Muscle Creams"
With the beginning of another swimming season; sore, tired
muscles are to be expected. However, caution should be used
in how we treat these sore muscles. Excessive use of
muscle creams containing methyl salicylate, the
wintergreen-scented ingredient found in anti-inflammatory
liniments such as;
Icy Hot and
Tiger Balm should be avoided. It was reported a couple
of months ago that a 17 year old track star died from an
accidental overdose of this muscle cream ingredient.
If the tired sore muscles persist, it would be best to seek
treatment from a doctor rather than use these types of
creams. There has to be a heightened awareness and agreement
within the sports community that these products are
something that needs to be used under medical supervision.
