In brief: NSAID side effects.

Nsaids like Ibuprofen have some unfortunate side effects that make them a poor choice for many people in pain and most people with pain after sports activities.
They cause injury to stomach, kidneys, prevent your body from rebuilding cartilage in your joints from every day wear and tear, and stop your body from healing an acute injury like a tendon injury or an ankle sprain.
