Like many afflictions, arthritis packs a nasty one-two punch.
First, you must deal with the joint pain and stiffness caused by the inflammation. Then you’re often faced with either taking a medication that carries side effects or applying a slow-working product that leaves an offensive stench in its wake.
Absorbine Jr. alleviates all issues because this topical treatment works quickly to provide arthritis pain relief by way of herbal extracts that carry only a faint trace of pleasing menthol. And it’s formula has been tested time and time again for over a 100 years accumulating a long history of providing satisfying pain relief for generations.
All this should come as welcome news to the approximate 50 million Americans – or about one in five adults – who have been diagnosed with arthritis by their physicians. As the population ages, the number of arthritis sufferers is expected to increase to about 67 million by 2030, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
But the numbers somewhat skew the full story. Although arthritis is more prevalent in people age 65 and up, arthritis strikes people of all ages, including children. Younger people are more likely to suffer from osteoarthritis, or damage to a joint’s cartilage, which triggers pain and restricted movement.
And people of all ages can suffer from the second type of arthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis, which occurs when the lining of the joint capsule becomes inflamed and swollen. This affliction is particularly vicious, as it can ultimately destroy cartilage and bone within the joint.
Injury and infection can hasten the onset of either type of arthritis, which means that in addition to striking people in all age groups, arthritis can affect sedentary office workers as easily as athletes, workers whose jobs require bending and lifting and other active adults.
Ask any person (if you dare) as he grips his neck, back, hands or knees in pain: They want relief quickly and they want relief safely and reliably. And while there’s no doubt that regular exercise can help alleviate the pain and discomfort of arthritis by keeping the joints flexible, sometimes even the prospect of discomfort makes exercise a less than plausible option.
For times like these especially, you can reach for Absorbine Jr. with full confidence – and with the knowledge that arthritis pain relief is just around the bend.
