Carisoprodol is a prescription medication primarily used as a muscle relaxant to treat acute musculoskeletal conditions associated with painful muscle spasms or injuries. Here are the main uses of carisoprodol:

Muscle Spasms: Carisoprodol is commonly prescribed for the relief of acute, painful muscle spasms or stiffness associated with musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, neck pain, strains, sprains, and other injuries.
Musculoskeletal Pain: Carisoprodol may also be used to alleviate musculoskeletal pain, although its primary mechanism of action is muscle relaxation rather than pain relief directly. By reducing muscle spasms and tension, carisoprodol can indirectly help to alleviate associated pain.
