Arthritis is a pain! How can you find relief?
Arthritis impacts 6 million Canadians
Did you know that arthritis affects about 20% of Canadians? That means 1 on 5 people struggle with this disease. * That is an insanely large number.
What is arthritis?
Arthritis is the swelling and inflammation of joints. But it isn’t just one disease. There are more than 100 types of arthritis and conditions that affect the joints, joint tissues, and other connective tissues. Symptoms are different for everyone and depend on the type of arthritis you have, but usually, they include joint pain and stiffness.
Managing Arthritis pain
There are many different approaches to managing the pain caused by arthritis. Some options, as per the Arthritis Society of Canada, include the following:
Heat and cold therapy. Heat, such as hot packs, hot water bottles, and warm baths, improves blood flow and circulation and relaxes tight muscles. Heat should not be applied to an inflamed joint. Cold, on the other hand, helps with inflammation. It can be applied using frozen gel packs, frozen veggies, or ice cubes in a plastic bag.
Posture. Training yourself to stand up straight, not slouch in a chair, or hold on to your phone tightly is a great long-term pain management strategy. Be aware of your posture and regularly change your position to a more optimal one.
Meditation and mindfulness help improve physical and mental health. Find a quiet location, a comfortable position sitting or lying down, focus your attention and practice deep breathing. There are many forms of meditation and there are lots of online videos and books that can help guide you.
Physical Therapy such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, massage, and acupuncture can help manage chronic pain by increasing your mobility and range of motion and reducing muscle stiffness.
Exercise. Physical activity is always important. Arthritis may limit how much you can do, but it is important to keep moving. Exercise improves strength, energy, flexibility, and mood and ultimately reduces pain.

Hello I forgot to mention in my last post that w
Hello just want to say the LivRelief cream with the Rutin is a miracle cream! I have Post Herptic Neuralgia from a severe case of Shingles on my thigh for several years. Been taking Gabapentin for the constant stinging pain with no relief. This cream is the only thing that works. My only wish is that it didn’t cost quite so much. But thank you. It has definitely improved my quality of life.
PLEASE DO NOT STOP MAKING THIS CREAM, THE BLUE PACKAGE – PAIN RELIEF CREAM – relief of joint pain due to inflammation. There is no words to describe what this cream did for me, NO WORDS, I swear all the pain relief creams on the shelf cannot compare to this one! This product saved me from having knee operation. The whole world needs to know about this product, because it would save a whole lot of people going to do knee operation, also it would do wonders for our soldiers. I have been using it forever, it cured my knee problem, sometimes I just use if I feel anything pain comin on, then it gets good. At one time I could not find it in stores, I found it on Amazon. Please, no other cream for pain works, voltaren, 535, etc….you name it, they need to clear out the shelves and just stock it with LivRelief! I am proud that it is CANADIAN!
About 2 months ago I went to the pharmacy searching for a topical pain medication that contained capsaicin. It seems that most products have menthol which just doesn’t work well for me. The pharmacist pointed out 2 products that they had available. I decided on Dr. Joe’s LivRelief. I am very very surprised at how effective it is and also that it does not create a sensation of intense heat to the skin that I was expecting. I apply it to the areas where I have arthritic joint pain and sore muscles. I also have sciatic nerve damage on my right side, applying LivRelief to regions including my lower lumbar, hip, leg and foot. For all my conditions it provides immediate relief. I don’t completely understand why this product is so effective but the package does say it delivers the medication trans dermally which I am aware of slightly because of patches which deliver nicotine to people attempting to quit smoking. Based on my experience I have to check out the varicose vein cream and nerve pain cream as well. Based on my results I’m happy to be a good will ambassador for this product, it worked excellent for me.
Hi, I have moderate to severe atopic dermatitis. The latest medications are not available here in NZ. Evidence shows that topical preparations containing rutin are very effective. Does LivRelief have any experience in the treatment of eczema? Thank you very much.
I have just completed Camino de Santiago Portugal. I started August 22 in Lisbon and walked 640 km to Santiago de Compestella 27 days later. .I could not have walked ithe Camino without the help of Liv Relief healing cream for my feet ankles and knees. Thanks a million for your product. Teresa Marshak St Albert , Alberta, Canada.
