How can I use capsaicin to relieve pain?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Block your nerves’ pain impulses with a capsaicin cream. Rub the healing cream on your neck and back muscles for relief. You’ll probably experience a burning sensation; capsaicin is the same ingredient that gives chili peppers their spicy kick! Apply it three times daily for any chronic pain. Believe it or not, two sprays of capsaicin spray can also help stop some kinds of headache in minutes!
