Salonpas Pain Relief Patches definitely work! The other day my knees were really hurting. I'm not sure what I did, but I decided to put one of these pain patches on my knee before bed. I woke up and the knee I put the pain patch on didn't hurt at all and it has bothered me for the last 3 days.
In my opinion these pain patches work very well and I would recommend them. I try to use products that are natural and organic, but when you need relief these work great!
Here are some facts about the Salonpas Pain Relief Patch:SALONPAS PAIN RELIEF PATCH is the first and only FDA-Approved OTC topical pain relief patch for the temporary relief of mild to moderate aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with arthritis, sprains, strains, bruises and simple backache.
