Topical Liniments for Arthritis Overview

What Works for Joint and Muscle Pain?

My name is Cassandra Willis. For the past three years I’ve been working closely with Barbara Allan, arthritis expert and author of Conquering Arthritis: What Doctors Don’t Tell You Because They Don’t Know. In my years working with Barbara and her clients, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to heal arthritis, but, more importantly, what it takes to be healthy, no matter what ails you.

As a dancer, an athlete, and someone who suffers from flat feet related muscle and joint pain, I use Icy Hot® when I want to distract myself from the pain. The cool/hot sensation is relaxing for the inflamed muscle and quickly takes my mind off the discomfort – but does it have the same effect on arthritis pain?

Although there are no creams that will give you a miracle cure for arthris, or reverse the underlying causes, it can still be useful to have some temporary relief from pain.  I want you to heal and be free of pain altogether, but I know the value pain relief can be to you while you are healing.
