In brief: Not indicated

Aspirin is probably the oldest anti/inflammatory medicine around; it works well in this regard for some patients.
!it's also used as an anti-pyretic to help reduce fever . It has also been used for many other conditions including headaches, 'blood thinning ' etc. It is not, however , a muscle relaxant . Ask your primary care physician about alternatives..
