It's the holiday season, and you KNOW what that means.....
Injuries,. Injuries, Injures.
(sing that to Jingle Bells...)
From climbing up ladders to putting up lights, to trying to lift the Christmas tree, to shoveling snow (you lucky dogs), to too many hours driving to Mom's house....
Not only aches and pains, you'll have sprains and deep nerve pain.
But there has been a solution for people all over the world since 1934 (yes, THAT long)!
Salonpas is YOUR solution for pain management!
Thanks to it's full line of topical analgesic products (creams, gels, sprays and patches), it puts pain medicine right at the site of your pain, bypassing your stomach and liver, and preventing unwanted damage to them. Salonpas can use less medicine to deliver an effective dose to make your pain go AWAY.
“When people self-medicate with over-the-counter oral pain pills, they can ingest inappropriate doses and run the risk of potential drug interactions, which can lead to unintended or unsuspected dangerous side effects, some of which can be as serious as liver failure or heart damage,” says Dr. Sylvia Hesse, a New York based orthopedic medicine specialist. “By relying on topical analgesic gels, sprays and patches for pain relief - without the use of pills - you can be assured of making a safer choice.” And anything that helps keep you OUT of the doctor's office, with today's higher copays, deductibles and prescription costs, is a gem!
Salonpas Pain Relieving Jet Spray is perfect for immediate relief, when you first get an injury. The smaller nozzle helps you to get the spray exactly where you need it, and not all over your clothes or hair! Its menthol provides fast relief with a cooling, soothing sensation (REALLY cold feeling when you first apply it), while the methyl salicylate, and NSAID control your pain, for long lasting relief (up to 8 hours of targeted relief)! I found that it is super for shoulder injuries (which you WILL have during the holiday season, and you know you will), as you can spray it on your shoulder easily, compared to trying to put a gel on yourself backwards and sideways! It immediately freezes your pain and stops it in its tracks. It dries super quickly and has a no drip formula, so it STAYS where you put it! It also is not as strong, as far as the menthol smell goes, so kids will tolerate it better! It is perfect for Miss Grace for spot bobos and mini sprains too, making it great to keep in your travel bag, for on-the go injuries too!
Salonpas Pain Relieving Gel-Patch Hot contains two powerful pain fighting ingredients. Menthol for a cooling, soothing sensation and Capsaicin for long lasting heat, hot sensation relief. The combination provides up to eight hours of targeted relief! The advanced gel patch technology stays in place better than most other patches too. The rounded corners prevent peeling and the split film in the center allows for easy application. I found that when I had a hand sprain, it worked really well. it stayed in place, didn't move, and gave me long lasting relief, to get me through my work shift!
The Salonpas Lidocaine Pain Relieving Gel- Patch. is the latest innovation from the world’s leader in medicinal pain patches. This Lidocaine Pain Relieving Gel- Patch provides temporary relief of pain associated with back, neck, shoulders, knees and elbows pain. I used it after a long long day on my feet, when my sciatica kicked up and I was really surprised that by putting in on my lower back for the 2 horu ride home, I was actually able to move and go up and down stairs with ease, when we got home! It's one of my new must haves for long days on my feet, or for when back pain may erupt.
Salonpas Pain Relief Patch is the first and only FDA-Approved OTC topical pain patch for the temporary relief of mild to moderate and provides pain relief for up to 12 hours! Its contains two powerful pain fighting ingredients, menthol and methyl salicylate (a NSAID – a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) go to work as soon as the patch is applied and immediately provide relief. I unfortunately had my bursitis come up when the weather went down to cold and I slept wrong One patch on and I was able to move with ease and finish decorating the house, climbing and stringing lights, with no problem!
Their DEEP Relieving Gel, is non-greasy gel, that contains three active ingredients: camphor (3.1%), menthol (10%), and methyl salicylate (15%), that penetrate deep, providing effective relief for up to 8 hours. Miss Grace uses it regularly for minor sprains and muscle pulls from dance class. it gets down DEEP and stops the pain at the nerves, while starting the healing process where it NEEDS to be, at the source of the problem! We don't go to competitions without it!
The strength of Salonpas Pain Relieving Patch has been improved with more medicine than the Salonpas Original.
