“Turmeric! That’s the stuff you put in a curry, right?” Yes, it is but incredibly it has medicinal qualities too. It is all about the curcumin which Turmeric contains. I even take it and we also stock it in our clinics too! So what does it do? The main reason it is of interest to physiotherapists is down to its anti-inflammatory qualities but how good is turmeric or curcumin for recovery from exercise?
