Everyone has heard the expression “no pain, no gain” and there is definitely something to that! The harder I work out, the more sore I am the next day. Since I’m almost forty, my body doesn’t respond as well to things as it used to so I also have to combat the aches and pains of an aging body.
Salonpas is designed to naturally fight pain caused by working out without putting anything unnecessary into your body. “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.”
I do a few different things for exercise including walking, hiking, Jazzercise and DVD’s at home with weights. If I work as hard as I should, I’m usually sore. Sometimes this is tolerable and others it’s miserable.
I tried the pain relieving gel patch on my lower back after a particularly sore day last week. I have chronic lower back pain, probably from carrying around children for the last seven years! Sometimes it really bothers me after a workout. The gel patch is really easy to use. You just pull it apart almost like a bandaid and apply to affected area. The heat is an instant relief to sore muscles!
If you don’t like heat, there is another pain relief patch that is not hot and can be applied for 8 – 12 hours and has a cool minty scent to it. I like this for other areas of my body that aren’t my back. It can be used for sore muscles as well, sprains and joint pain.
They also offer a jet spray which is great especially when I am out of the house on a hike or a bike ride where I need instant convenient pain relief. It works just like any other spray and provides instant relief.
The other pain reliever is a deep relieving gel. This isn’t my favorite because for some reason I just don’t like the feel of gel on my body. But I like that there are all of these different options so that anyone can find the pain relief they are looking for in a way that is comfortable for them.
Salonpas is an effective way to treat muscle and joint pain without putting extra things in your body you would get from an oral medication. Why put yourself at risk taking things you don’t need when there’s a better way to do it?
