Mode of Action of Etoricoxib+Thiocolchicoside

How Does It Work?

  • Certain substances, when released in the body, produce pain and inflammatory condition in the body. So, the affected area becomes red, painful and swollen.
  • Etoricoxib belongs to a group of medicine that blocks the effect of inflammatory chemicals. So, all the symptoms related to it improve gradually.
  • The signals and chemicals released by the brain and spinal cord are responsible for muscle stiffness and pain of the muscle and joints.
  • Thiocolchicoside interrupts this signal transmission process in the brain and spinal cord and thus relieves muscle spasms and pain associated with it.
  • Thus, this combination eventually helps in restoring the movement of muscles and joints.
