    Here's a look at some key findings on the potential health benefits of comfrey cream: 

    1) Back Pain 

    Comfrey ointment could help ease back pain, suggests a 2010 study from the British Journal of Sports Medicine. The study included 120 patients with acute upper or lower back pain, each of whom were treated with comfrey ointment or a placebo for five days. Study results revealed that pain intensity decreased an average of 95.2 percent in the group given comfrey ointment (compared to 37.8 percent in the placebo group). 

    2) Osteoarthritis 

    Comfrey ointment may help treat osteoarthritis of the knee, according to a study published in Phytomedicine in 2007. For the study, 220 people with osteoarthritis of the knee were assigned to three weeks of treatment with either comfrey ointment or a placebo. By the study's end, those who used the comfrey ointment had experienced a significantly greater improvement in pain, mobility, and quality of life (compared to members of the placebo group).

    3) Ankle Sprains 

    Several studies show that comfrey ointment may be helpful in the treatment of ankle sprains. In a 2005 study published in Phytomedicine, for instance, researchers found that comfrey ointment may be just as effective as Diclofenac gel (a topically applied nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) when it comes to reducing ankle-sprain-related pain. The study included 164 patients with ankle sprains, each of whom was treated for about a week. 

    4) Wound Healing 

    Comfrey ointment shows promise in the treatment of wounds, according to a 2012 study published in the German journal Drug Research. The study involved 108 children (ages 3 to 12), each of whom had recently suffered an abrasion. Researchers assigned the children to treatment with a cream containing either 10 percent comfrey extract or 1 percent comfrey extract.
