Even though my husband and I are relatively young, we’re both in professions that take a toll on our bodies. He has to do physical labor at his job, and working 12 hour shifts and bending over my patients all the time often leaves me with achy legs and a sore back.
I decided to try Stopain at the end of a shift where my legs were especially tired and hurting. Stopain is a line of topical analgesics that provide instant pain relief. Its main ingredient is menthol and it also contains peppermint and eucalyptus oil which are known for their natural pain relief properties.
As soon as I opened the bottle, that strong menthol scent hit me. I would love it if they could make a menthol product that doesn’t smell like menthol It’s not that unpleasant, just strong. What I liked about Stopain is that it comes in a roll-on bottle so it’s easy and clean to apply. You don’t have to worry about staining your clothes or getting cream on your hands. As I applied it, I could feel its cooling effects right away. While it’s not as good as a massage, it’s a quick and easy way to get some pain relief that works on contact.
If you suffer from muscle aches like me or arthritis, Stopain may provide some relief. Plus, for every Stopain product sold in 2011, a portion of the proceeds is donated to the Arthritis Foundation with a minimum contribution of $25,000.
