How long will it take meloxicam 15mg to help muscle strain/ spasm. Luq knots/pain, Dr said musculoskeletal costochondritis but no specifics on healing.

Up to Several Weeks. Medications, like meloxicam, will help the inflammation in many musculoskeletal conditions (like costochondritis). However, like most muscle/joint pains/aches, it may take weeks for the pain level to decrease to a more comfortable level. In cases of bone/cartilage injury, there is a lower blood supply vs other organs to bring the building blocks of healing leading to a longer heal time.
