How it works
Thiocolchicoside works by interacting with certain specific receptors in the central nervous system to prevent muscle contractions and relieve muscle spasms. Diclofenac and Paracetamol inhibit the formation of certain natural substances which are responsible for causing pain and inflammation. Thus, this combination is better effective in relieving pain, swelling, and inflammation associated with muscle spasms.
