Soma is a very powerful medication which is used in the treatment of muscle injuries most common of which are spasms, strains and sprains. In combination with rest and physical therapy it will help you quickly reach full recovery and be able to return to your regular activities. It is very effective and safe to use as well.
But how does Soma do all this?
First of all, you should understand the way your body works and what happens when you get injured. Actually, our brain is in a constant communication with the rest of our body. Our nervous system is connected to every cell of our body and it is responsible for transmitting impulses from our body to our brain and vice versa, and this is the way the communication between them goes on.
Once you get injures and the injured muscles becomes strained or it constricts into a painful spasm, what happens in your body is that the injured muscles sends certain impulses to the brain and tells the brain that it is hurt. When the impulse gets to the brain, we feel the pain and the brain reacts by constricting the muscle even more. The brain then sends some impulses to the muscles and in this way they continue to communicate.
Now, how does Soma help here?
It actually does not affect the muscles themselves. It affects the brain stem, the spinal cord and the nerves by stopping the impulses from the muscles and thus preventing them to reach the brain. In this way the pain stops and since your brain now thinks that the muscle is not in pain anymore it the reaction of constricting is gone and the muscle becomes relaxed and ready to recover.
Also, the way your body absorbs carisoprodom, the active ingredient of Soma, is through the liver. There, it is metabolized into meprobamate which is a so-called barbiturate medication that has sedative and anti-anxiety properties. In this way Soma also has a sedating effect on your body which helps in you in your overall recovery, but this is also the reason it may cause slight dizziness and drowsiness and because of this it is not recommended that you drive or perform any actions that would require a swift and sudden reaction.
All in all, Soma is a fine but strong medication that will relax your muscles and relieve you from the pain. However, it does not directly affect your muscles. In fact, once it is metabolized through your liver, it works in your nervous system by affecting impulses which are pieces of conversation between your muscles and your brain. In this way the injured, but now relaxed muscle, gets to recover more quickly and easily. It is also important that you know that Soma also has a sedating affect on your nervous system and the whole body and that you should not drive or take any similar actions while on treatment. Now, all you need to do is get your Soma prescription and kill that pain.
