Wrap treatments using the liquid for external use "Retterspitz Äußerlich" can ease painful tendon sheaths. Swelling goes down. Keep the limb immobilised and apply a wrap treatment using Retterspitz Äußerlich up to five times a day; leave each wrap on for one and a half hours. The wrap for neck and smaller joints "Retterspitz Wickel für Hals und kleinere Gelenke" is the right size for this. To treat sports-induced overstrain, a gentle massage using the muscle treatment "Retterspitz Muskelcreme" provides additional help after removing the wrap. Apply a line of cream, approx. 5 cm long.
