When I was 7 I was diagnosed with Scoliosis. As I grew it kept getting worse and worse. I am now in my 40’s (OMG I just said that for the first time……I just turned 40 in December!! YIKES!!!) and have noticed that due to my scoliosis my back pain has been increasing. My muscles get stretched in weird ways and it’s pretty painful sometimes. I am not big on taking any oral medication so Salonpas is perfect. Salonpas belongs to a class of pain relievers called topical analgesics. Which just basically means it goes on top of the skin and relieves pain. I have been using Salonpas products for years. They have been a lifesaver.
The products I use are:
- Pain Relief Patch – This is the strongest over the counter pain reliever available without a prescription. It also lasts up to 12 hours.
- Deep Relieving Gel – This rushes 3 pain fighters deep for effective penetrating relief
- Jet Spray (My personal favorite) – This has 2 powerful medicines and it sprays on clear and dries fast. I keep this in my purse at all times.
- Gel Patch Hot – This soothes on contact, then delivers deep penetrating waves of heat
Salonpas products are FDA approved and work on muscle and joint pain (not headaches). They are super convenient and works at the site of the pain rather then having to go through your body and be processed through the blood stream. Which also means they work fast! They also contain a Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug (NSAID) that is powerful when applied to the skin but does not have to be processed systematically (meaning inside your body). It is the only over the counter analgesic labeled to treat both mild and tougher moderate pain. All other over the counter analgesics can only claim to treat minor or mild pain.
