While much arthritis pain is severe requiring aggressive treatment, sometimes arthritis pain is relatively mild and can be managed by using lesser options.

Rub on arthritis pain relief creams often are useful adjuncts to other therapies.

What type of arthritis cream is best?

The answer is ... it depends.

For minor aches and pains, a capsaicin containing preparation might be all that is needed. Capsaicin is the active ingredient found in hot peppers. Capsaicin causes the small blood vessels in the skin to dilate. This leads to increased blood flow and a sensation of heat. This sensation of heat is what leads to soothing comfort.

There are many topical agents on the market.

In our clinic we use Blue Relief.

The theory behind Blue Relief is that it contains a combination of refined emu oil and a rare form of aloe. Both compounds have been shown to provide temporary relief from muscle aches and arthritis.

Blue Relief is absorbed through the skin rapidly. You can purchase Blue Relief by going to the Arthritis Treatment Center Store at

Rules for using arthritis pain relief creams:

•Do not apply to irritated skin or open sores
•Keep your fingers away from your eyes after they’ve dipped into the cream.
•If you are sensitive to the ingredients, don’t use the cream
•Discontinue use if you develop a rash or skin irritation

Another topical agent that is available is Voltaren gel. You can get it by prescription. Closely related is Pennsaid, a combination of diclofenac and DMSO. Ketoprofen gel can also be obtained by prescription through a compounding pharmacy.
