Your next challenge: Post game pain

Pain after gaming can wipe out your day

You’re in it to win it. But when headaches and back pain kick in, it’s time to take a break and find pain relief with Nurofen. Did you know that paracetamol doesn’t have anti-inflammatory properties? That’s why ibuprofen, such as Nurofen, can be used to help treat back pains and headaches after a long day gaming.

  • For both headaches and back pain, you might want to take a painkiller if you cannot find relief. Unlike paracetamol, ibuprofen, such as Nurofen has anti-inflammatory properties, which are useful in the treatment of back pain.
