5 Great Muscle Rub Formulas for Pain Relief

Who can’t relate to the occasional bout of muscle and joint soreness from exercise or just everyday activities, plus the cost of daily aging? Add in an injury, and you’ll need something to help you heal naturally. 

For me, as a Type I diabetic, I’m always searching for ways to improve the quality of my health and life.

But when the pain and discomfort are ever-present, I do not turn to needlessly popping over-the-counter pain relievers such as Tylenol and Alieve.  Over time, they’ll do more harm than good.

Instead, I tried one of these five muscle rub creams for a bit of relief sans the negative side effects, to help get me back in the game. Why not give one of the below products a shot. 

Biofreeze Pain Relief Roll-On Gel

Biofreeze is the pain-relieving formula I used when I had a bone spur on the Achilles heel of my right foot. It was the only way I was able to walk for a while without any pain, and the roll-on applicator made it completely mess-free. Without it, I would have not been able to walk without any type of ease. 

In addition, it’s great for other small areas of the body such as the wrist and elbow.

ZenRenu Organic Hemp Muscle Rub Cream

https://amzn.to/3yrKnI1 (Organic Hemp Cream Large (4 oz) Value Size by ZenRenu – MSM Turmeric Arnica – Made in USA Premium Hemp Oil).

Hemp muscle-relief creams are where it’s at right now, and this preparation is filled with extracts from hemp and arnica — both natural agents believed to help rid the body of pain. Add in the soothing peppermint and camphor, and you’ll be feeling like your pain-free self in no time. 

Boiron Arnicare Gel Muscle Rub

https://amzn.to/3aqw6n1 (Boiron Arnicare Gel for Soothing Relief of Joint Pain, Muscle Pain, Muscle Soreness, and Swelling from Bruises or Injury – Non-greasy and Fragrance-Free – 2.6 oz0.

One of the drawbacks to pain-relieving rub on formulas is they often have a distinct smell to it, so everyone around knows you’re in some sort of pain.

But Boiron Arnicare Gel Muscle Rub is odorless and non-greasy, helping to lessen muscle pain, stiffness, and swelling from injuries and bruises sans smell.

While the homeopathic concoction is effective in its job of pain relief, I find it works better over time with continuous use.

 Tiger Balm Ultra Strength 

https://amzn.to/3yR7vAZ (Tiger Balm Pain Relieving Ointment Ultra Strength Non-staining, 1.7 Ounce).

Boy, does Tiger Balm bring back nice memories of when I was a long-distance runner, seeking relief from my long, pavement-pounding jaunts.

Once I slapped it on and rub it into my muscles and joints while smelling that beautiful mintiness, I knew feeling better wasn’t far away.

The small container makes it easy to carrier it in a gym bag and luggage for quick use when traveling.

BLUE-EMU Original 12 oz Jar

https://amzn.to/3PgMqoV (Blue Emu Original Analgesic Cream, 12 Oz. – Pack of 2).

The Blue-Emu® product line is the number one selling over-the-counter muscle and joint cream in the United States. And for good reason; it works well.

Original BLUE-EMU Super Strength Cream, made with real emu oil, is a naturally powerful formula that has the ability to penetrate the skin with great efficiency.

This property helps the soothing ingredients of Aloe Vera, MSM and Glucosamine permeate directly to your tired joints and muscles, possibly reducing inflammation.

Additionally, Blue-Emu Maximum Arthritis Pain Relief Cream provides fast, odor-free pain relief to achy joints and muscles.

Hey, Hall of Famer Reds catcher Johnny Bench uses it, so I am sure you will, too.
