My Favorite Pain Relief Products – Salonpas! Trust Your Pain To The Experts

I have had major arthritis for most of my life.  Little did I know that affliction was a precursor to so many other issues that I now struggle with.  But the real issue is the pain.  I do occasionally take Tylenol but I don’t often take oral NSAIDS because they tend to get me agitated and increase my blood pressure (which is otherwise normal).  I certainly don’t want to take any prescription pain medication – I still need to be functional, drive, work etc…

How do I solve the problem?  With Salonpas®!  I have been a loyal user of Salonpas products since 2015.  Back then I don’t remember being able to find their products in local stores but now I definitely can – pretty much at every major store.  Prior to discovering Salonpas the only relief I ever got was through prescription Lidocaine patches – but then they were no longer available – which led me to Salonpas.

I truly love all of their products – after all, no one likes to be in pain.  At first I fell in love with the patches – all of them.  They were perfect for my shoulders, back shins and more.  They work for a huge portion of the day and I am able to focus on whatever I need to.  Somedays I choose hot patches while other days I may choose a patch with lidocaine etc…

Sometimes however, I can’t use patches such as on my back.  If no one is available to help me put one on, then I need to use one of the other Salonpas products.  Their other products include creams, roll-ons, and gels.  Something for every need, every pain level and more.

By putting the medicine right at the site of pain, bypassing the stomach and liver, Salonpas can use less medicine to deliver an effective dose. Try it and we think you will agree that Salonpas offers powerful relief when and where you need it.

This winter has been soooo hard.  I have arthritis and quite a bit of metal in my legs.  I have fractured so many bones in my body and they are all sore when bad weather looms.   A few months ago I had surgery on my right shoulder so I am sure recovering and soon I will need surgery on my left shoulder.  Pain is something I live with every day – that doesn’t mean I have to not deal with it though.

Salonpas newest product is their arthritis pain relief gel with Diclofenac Sodium Topical Gel 1%.   Diclofenac Sodium topical gel is indicated for the relief of the pain of osteoarthritis of joints amenable to topical treatment according to the F.D.A. and it was a prescription but now has been released over the counter, at that same prescription strength, so thankfully we can all access it.  It is safe to use for up to 21 days.  It is a clear, non-greasy, unscented gel that reduces inflammation and delivers relief right at the site of pain and retails for $19.99.
