Can you suggest 2 or 3 topical antiinflammatory creams that are proven to help sprains, either in research or in your practice?

In brief: Topicals

Voltaren (diclofenac) gel and PENNSAID are prescription nsaids and can be helpful.

In brief: Topical treatments

There are several options but i always encourage use of compounded medications at a certified compounding pharmacy.
These are generally less expensive and gives me much more flexibility regarding what my patient needs (nsaid vs. Steroid, numbing medicine, etc.). Ask you doctor for options.
