Use of Ibuprofen Could Increase Risk of Chronic Pain, Study Shows

The study was conducted by researchers in the UK and reported on May 11. It suggests that short-term use of both ibuprofen and steroids to relieve inflammation may actually increase a person's risk for chronic pain. The study points out that inflammation is the body's way of healing from an injury that may cause pain. Blocking this process in the body with over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen could lead to future significant health issues.
