I have been looking for a product that will help alleviate pain in my shoulder (torn rotator cuff) and thumb joints, while a product that is a gel called Voltaren gel that is actually ibuprofen in a gel form works great and helps with the pain it is extremely expensive. Up to $70.00 per tube, ouch!!
I have also use another product called BioFreeze, this one is not nearly expensive but I dont always like the cooling effect it has, especially in the summer. But it does work well.
I wanted to share my opinion about this product and was not compensated for my honest review.
Then came Boiron “Arnica Gel” for Pain Relief, 2.6 Ounce, Topical Analgesic for Neck Pain, Back Pain, Shoulder Pain, Leg and Foot Pain, Muscle Pain, Joint Pain Relief, Arthritis. Natural Active Ingredients. And the availability of Arnica Gel is available at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreen’s and anywhere from $6-$7 not upwards to $70.00!
Arnica is applied to the skin for pain and swelling associated with bruises, aches, and sprains. It is also applied to the skin for insect bites, arthritis, muscle and cartilage pain, chapped lips, and acne.
I am sharing more detailed information from Amazon than I can explain:
