I have struggled with carpal tunnel for about eight years and knee problems for three. The carpal tunnel goes along with having a career in which typing and taking notes were tantamount. The knee problems came about after I gained 60 pounds during my second pregnancy.
Neither problem is constant, but will pop up from time to time. It's certainly nothing to get professional help with, but when the aches and pains do occur, it's nice to have something. I decided to give Joint Right by Vita Sciences a try.
It's a lotion in an easy pump container that you apply to problem areas. Made with natural ingredients, it has Cox2 inhibitor, aloe, vitamins E and B-5 and chamomile. As you might have guessed, the smell is not bad. It's very subtle and when you do notice it, it's all that bad. Upon application, it absorbs into your skin very easily. You don't have to rub and rub to get the absorption. It leaves your skin smooth and silky.
Now, the best part - it actually works! But not as you would expect. It dulls the pain and makes it a minor irritation. There is no miraculous "WOW!" But, it does help with the pain, within minutes of application. It has helped more with my knee than my carpal tunnel, but all in all, I have no complaints.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
