Sunrider's Dr. Reuben Chen Guides Readers Through Pain Relief Strategies on Outside Online
Dr. Reuben Chen, Sunrider International’s Chief Medical Advisor, provided expert commentary for an article in Outside Online, the digital platform for Outside magazine, a popular outdoor lifestyle and adventure magazine.
Published on November 9, 2023, the article titled "Should You Take Pain Relievers for Exercise-Induced Aches?" delves into the common dilemma faced by both serious athletes and weekend warriors: When to take cues from your body and rest, and when to treat soreness with pain relievers.
The article sheds light on the prevalent issue of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), characterized by muscle tenderness, stiffness, or mild swelling post-exercise.
Dr. Reuben Chen, a Board-Certified Sports Medicine Physician and Holistic Pain Management Expert, provides insights into when taking an anti-inflammatory would be appropriate, as well as when it would be prudent to seek professional help.
Drawing on his background in traditional Chinese medicine, Dr. Chen also recommends considering Eastern medicine modalities for managing aches and pains, including accupuncture, which studies suggest may be effective in treating various forms of pain, including osteoarthritis and myofascial pain syndrome.
