Arthritis & Joint Pain Lotions at Wells Brothers
Snap, crunch, pop, and moan are just some of the sounds I make in the morning. It’s not every morning but after spending a weekend of working in the yard or in the woods then add in a seasonal weather change, that’s pretty much my morning symphony. Some of these pains are old injuries coming back to haunt me and some are not. I do smile and remember how I got some of these aches and pains. I’m not really complaining, there are folks in a lot worse shape than I. But apparently, I’m getting older and some parts starting to fall below spec, or so says the medical community.
Because my new year’s resolution (for the last 20 years) has been to stay out of the doctor’s office and I hate taking medications; I combat this “getting old” trend myself. That doesn’t mean I don’t go to the sawbones if needed. I just try not to need it. So I fight by eating right (M&M’s), exercising (carrying ice cream), and getting enough sleep (tomorrow)! The reality is I try to eat right and exercise around my pains and now that the World Series and election are over, the sleep thing is getting better.
When I do test the limits of my physical self, I look towards topical liniments that target muscle and joint soreness. The following products are available at Wells Brothers. Way back in my Martial Arts days I was very partial to DMSO. A friend of mine has been studying and teaching Judo for more than 45 years and is a Two Old Goats fan. I have used the Absorbine products and I find the gel easier to use than the liquid. The most popular one at the local gym is Absorbine Gel. Both work well. We also have Bigeloil, Corona Liniment, and Mineral Ice. I haven’t used the last three but they have a dedicated following. Please read and follow the label directions for each of these products.
