  • stiffness
  • When used correctly, they are effective in relaxing muscles and relieving stiffness, pain and discomfort caused by strains, sprains or other types of injury, according to SteadyHealth.com. (reference.com)
  • NSAID
  • Given the poor pain and functional outcomes that persist beyond an ED visit for musculoskeletal LBP, the investigators propose a clinical trial to evaluate whether combining muscle relaxants or opioids with NSAIDs is more effective than NSAID monotherapy for the treatment of non-traumatic, non-radicular low back pain. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • pain
  • Skeletal muscle-relaxants too are effective for short-term pain relief and global efficacy. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • A Randomized Three-armed Comparative Effectiveness Study of Various Medications for Musculoskeletal Low Back Pain: Defining the Added Benefit of Muscle Relaxants and Opioids. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The efficacy evaluation includes objective parameters like Finger-to-Floor distance, Lasegue's sign, tenderness of par vertebral muscles, lumbar and dorsal hypermyotonia, leg tendon reflexes, need for rescue medication and subjective parameters like improvement in lumbar cinesalgia, pain in lower extremities, sensory disturbances of lower limb, and Global Assessment of Response to Therapy (PGART).

  • treatment
  • Butylscopolamine may also be used in the treatment of parkinsonism, spastic muscle states, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, and other conditions. (24med.net)

  • effects
