Manage Arthritis Pain While Staying Active! #Salonpas @Salonpas #Giveaway #Ad

May is National Arthritis Awareness Month, and in the United States, 23% of all adults—over 54 million people—have arthritis. As a Leukemia Survivor, I have developed arthritis due to some of the medications that I take even though I’m only 43 and I always thought that elderly people were the only ones who suffered from this pain. Unfortunately, as a busy Working Mom, I don’t have time to be in pain but I don’t like taking any additional prescription medications, if I can avoid it.

Thankfully, I have discovered that Salonpas® is available to arthritis sufferers whose activities have been limited, and who suffer from severe joint pain. As someone who was raised in Spain, where people are less reliant on taking pain for pills than other countries, I was excited at the prospect of being able to use a topical analgesic to treat muscle, back and joint pain. The truth is that, worldwide, topical analgesics, physical therapy, and other approaches are often considered before taking medication orally.

Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Bob Arnot, has recently compared the new over-the-counter option for arthritis sufferers with Salonpas® and he discussed the fact that arthritis sufferers who want fast and effective relief should consider topical options that provide immediate pain relief. Unfortunately, the over-the-counter option may take up to seven days to help ease the pain and has not been proven effective for any other pains such as back aches or muscle strains.

Salonpas Pain Relief Patch is the first OTC topical analgesic approved by the FDA and I am definitely adding it to my arsenal of wellness products so that I can zap arthritis pain when it rears its ugly head. These days, I am teaching remotely, supervising my sons’ studies at home, running a blog, and just being an all-around superwoman. I don’t have time to be in pain and neither do you!

Let’s Discuss: Do you know someone who suffers from arthritis pain and how has it affected their life?

  1. For the last 3 months I have been suffering with arthritis pain. It came out of nowhere, but I guess as we get older it starts to hit us more and more.

  2. I don’t know anyone that suffers from arthritis pain. Just the normal aches and pains of getting older that slows us down a bit.

  5. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia and I am so grateful for Salonpas products! They were recommended to me by an Orthopedic Surgeon, which should tell you something! I use different Salonpas products depending on the pain I am having. The creams & gels are helpful for the chronic daily pain. The patches are very helpful for longer lasting relief, such as if I am having a flare, which is common with the diseases I have. I love the different options Salonpas has to help me; creams, gels, patches, roll-on & spray. The roll-on is especially helpful when I am having a bad day with my hands & it hurts to use them to rub a lotion on a knee, I can hold the bottle & just roll the relief where it is needed! I love the spray for my upper back if my husband is not available to help me place a patch on, I can get fast relief with the spray! I truly love Salonpas & would be so grateful to win this contest. Thank you very much for the opportunity to win! Be well with Salonpas! 👍💯❤️🤞

  6. Shelly Peterson says

    My good friend suffers terribly from arthritis pain. It has impacted her life tremendously.

  7. I’ve got a friend who has arthritis in her hands and has a hard time with the chronic pain. For me, I use Salonpas for back and shoulder pain, and it does help.

  8. Melissa Storms says

    I have advanced arthritis in my left hip. I learned over a decade ago that I have a labral tear and that it would lead to arthritis and probably an early hip replacement. I finally found a doctor who does labral tear repairs and we scheduled arthroscopy surgery to clean up the arthritis and repair the tear. I got as far as my bloodwork and admission paperwork before elective surgeries were postponed, lol more answer than you were looking for.

  9. I suffer from lower back pain. This would help out a lot with that.

  10. Patricia E says

    I don’t know anyone with arthritis pain. I do love this brand and use it for my muscle aches. It works wonders for me.

  11. Karen A. says

    I have arthritis in my lower back, knees and fingers. This does keep me from enjoying things like I did in the past, especially yard work.

  12. Sandra Deffner says

    I suffer from Arthritis in all my joints. I found Salonpas 24 years ago at age 25 after a fall at work, my husband gave me some Salonpas and elderly co-worker had given him to use on my injured knees as I didn’t like taking the strong pain medications they gave me that made me feel like a zombie. As my medical issues worsened I needed different types of pain relief as the Salonpas stick on pads didn’t work for places like my hands. It was like Salonpas knew I needed some other options for treating my pain and they expanded their line. Having so many different types of Salonpas to treat different areas of my body is a dream come true. I like to believe they made the sprays and roll on as well as larger pads just for me!!

  13. My husband has arthritis and it’s severe that it makes him cry. So far, Salonpas Lidocaine gives him temporary relief that’s why when we have extra cash, we buy Salonpas Lidocaine.

  14. Maryann D. says

    I have rheumatoid arthritis and it does affect my life since every day I may have a different area of pain. My sisters do have various arthritis mostly in their hands, which is hard to deal with.
