Study Shows Tiger Balm Relieves Tension Headaches As Effectively As Paracetamol
According to a 1996 issue of the Australian Family Physician (25(2):216), a study in Australia compared the topical application of Tiger Balm, paracetamol and a placebo in the treatment of tension headache.
The results showed that there was a statistically significant difference in headache relief between Tiger Balm and the placebo. However, there was an insignificant difference between Tiger Balm and paracetamol.
In other words, Tiger Balm relieves tension headaches as effectively as paracetamol. With this new finding, you can now use Tiger Balm as an alternative to taking oral medication like paracetamol to relieve your tension headaches.
