My usual method of dealing with pain is to try topical methods before consuming pills. This usually works for mild pain or discomfort. Then I progress to low dosage OTC pills. And then if it is truly impeding my ability to function, I resort to prescriptions. Prescriptions are really hard on my system so I avoid them as much as possible.
When given the opportunity to try OxyRub® I was very interested because it promotes that this provides pain relief that seems to work better than most rub in pain relief creams. I love this information taken directly from their website.....
OxyRub's secret lies in a patented blend of menthol, emollients, and oxygenated essential oil in a soothing, non-greasy cream that's absorbed into the skin with NO burning or irritation!Clinical studies prove OxyRub has twice the pain-fighting powerIn a double-blind, randomized, controlled head-to-head study, OxyRub was put to the test against a leading, mainstream menthol-only cream. After eight days, users reported their acute pain decreased by an impressive 27.8% compared to just 13.7% in the menthol-only group. That's more than double the effectiveness of the mainstream pain cream!
Next, I found that it helped me in that the mild pain and discomfort of knee, shoulder, and back pain was relieved and in a short time. When this episode was in full-bloom, I used the cream several times during the day achieving relief.
I did have an episode of more sever back pain to occur and tried the cream. It did not get deep enough for this and I had to take some pills to get to it. But the OxyRub® Pain Relief Cream was my first step in achieving relief.
I can recommend this as a product to use for pain relief that is not unpleasant to use and will provide some measure of relief. Dr. Pergnolizzi's OxyRub® Pain Relief Cream seems to me to be a quality product.
