THE TOP FIVE ARTHRITIS PAIN RELIEF CREAMS RANKED
From Safest to Most Expensive, Here are the 5 Pain Relief Creams for Arthritis Ranked
Whether you’re looking for a short amount of relief to help ease muscle tension or a continuous pain reliever to ease symptoms of arthritis or chronic pain, it can be hard to find the right pain relief cream. Many offer big solutions without delivering results. Some can be more dangerous than you’d think, and others are just too expensive to afford for daily use.
Thankfully, for you, we ranked FIVE pain relief creams that should be on your radar. So you can finally stop worrying about which creams to choose and start getting back to a healthy, fulfilling life.
1. OVERALL VALUE: Y PAIN CREAM
Y Pain Cream has it all, a good value, safe ingredients, and (brace yourself) it works! We first tried Y when we were offered a 50% OFF discount code SECRET50. The company helps provide you with different forms of pain relief based on the type of symptoms you’re experiencing. From arthritis to back pain to nerve pain and more, Y’s concentrated formula, made from a mix of natural ingredients is effective and safe, which to be honest, can be hard to find.
2. BEST COOLING: BAROX MASSAGE GEL
Barox has received good reviews for its cooling ability on painful areas. However, as you might have caught, it’s a massage gel. This means that if you’re just applying the cream and expecting results they might be a bit underwhelming. It’s much better to use this gel when someone is helping massage it into your muscles. Which makes us question, is it just the massage doing the pain relief?
3. BEST WARMING: SOMBRA WARM THERAPY
Some people enjoy that cooling sensation for pain relief while others would much rather choose a warming sensation. Warming gels often trigger blood to focus on the area that that gel is applied to. This can help often with pain that is new, but longer-lasting may desire more than just the sensation for effective, daily relief.
4. MOST NATURAL: BOIRON ARNICA PAIN CREAM
Arnica Montana Plant, also known as the Mountain Daisy is a natural ingredient that is very effective in pain relief. It’s been used for centuries to help relieve pain and is a great natural ingredient to use. Boiron is a great alternative if you’re worried about applying unsafe chemicals to your body. However, it’s probably the least effective of the previous 3. And worth noting Y Pain Cream includes arnica as well as other natural ingredients that have similar effects, for more powerful and longer-lasting relief.
5. THE WORST: NEOSPORIN DUAL ACTION
Neosporin offers dual-action which includes pain relief and antibiotic/antibacterial functionality to help keep wounds or cuts from getting infected. The gel is fine for when you have an open, painful cut, but doesn’t offer much in the pain relief area if you’re looking for regular, if even daily, relief.
WHY WE CHOSE Y PAIN CREAM
We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Stefanie Miller on why she chose Y Pain Cream as her top choice for pain relief. Stefanie tells the story.
When I was 22 I was diagnosed with a rare case of arthritis. For the longest time, I’ve dealt with sore hands, tightness in my joints, and even muscle pain, so I’m always looking for the best type of pain relief.
Personally, I never found pain relief creams to be very effective. I often opted for oral medication, but it can become overwhelming and incapacitating, especially on days that I would like to get out of the house and function as a normal adult. It was this reason alone I began searching for another method that may work a little better.
That’s when my good friend showed me Y Pain Cream. She recently threw her back out and her doctor recommended it with the 50% OFF discount code SECRET50. I used the discount code as well to get my shipment of pain relief cream to try.
A few days later my package arrived. The packaging for Y was the first thing to impress me about the company. It’s clear, concise, and provides instructions right on the casing (you’d be surprised how many pain relief brands forget to show you proper instructions, it’s quite frustrating).
That said, the instructions were rather easy. Simply apply a generous amount of the cream to the areas of your body that are experiencing pain twice a day, in the morning and at night.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Y’s patented formula impacts an important receptor involved in pain, stress, and inflammation, called TRPV1, as well as GPR55, 5HTI-alpha, and adenosine A2A, which also cause inflammation, pain, and anxiety. The direct topical application of hemp cream directly meets these receptors for hyper-targeted pain treatment.
What’s most important is that, unlike an oral treatment, the pain reliever doesn’t need to travel through your bloodstream, so you can concentrate your pain relief to the areas of your body that hurt.
I found with my arthritis, which often would only hurt in my hands, I would take pain reliever that made my entire body a little numb, and I didn’t like that.
DOES Y PAIN CREAM WORK?
The first day I received Y Pain Cream, I applied it to my hands, back, and neck before bed as they tend to be the areas that bother me the most at night, and especially when waking up. To be honest, I fell asleep quite quickly that night so I didn’t notice a change. However, when I woke up, I was surprised at how refreshed I felt. No soreness, no tightness in muscles, and I even stayed in bed for an extra 30 minutes (which I never do as my body tends to be in too much pain to stay still).
With Y, I found applying twice a day was enough to drastically reduce the pain in my hands and joints. I actually found myself forgetting that I even had pain, which is rare when you have chronic arthritis.
DOES THE PAIN RELIEF LAST?
Something I really wanted to test out was the ability for Y Pain Cream to consistently deliver. A lot of times with pain creams they work for the first few days and slowly their effectiveness fades because your body becomes accustomed. It’s often why people turn to opioids because they’re so strong that they seem to be effective every time you take them (it’s also why they’re so addicting)
I used Y Pain Cream every day in the morning and at night. Found an effective decrease in pain. I was able to type for about an hour longer than I usually can, and had a better night’s sleep every night.
Wednesday and Thursday I didn’t use Y Pain Cream at night before bed as I had no noticeable pain. I woke up each morning slightly sore, but applying in the morning helped reduce the pain pretty much to zero by the time I finished breakfast.
I switched off about every day from applying Y Pain Cream at night as it seemed to be so effective that I didn’t need it as much as it was recommended. That was a shocker, as more often I find pain relievers are less effective than they promise and you end up using more than you think.
MY FINAL RECOMMENDATION
I’m a new believer in pain creams, especially Y Pain Cream. It effectively reduced my pain in the areas I needed it to focus on and helped me get out of bed and keep moving throughout the day without noticeable discomfort. I highly recommend Y Pain Reliever for your muscles, joints, and nerves.
