HOW DEEP RELIEF CAN HELP EASE MILD ARTHRITIS PAIN Monday 16 April 2007 PDF Print More than nine million people in the UK* suffer from arthritis. Two of the most common forms of the disease are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, but there are more than 200 different kinds of rheumatic disease – causing aches and pains in joints, bones and muscles. The most severe forms of arthritis are complex and disabling and require specialist care, but countless people manage mild arthritic pain at home. The Mentholatum Company, which makes the iconic Deep Heat brand, also offers Deep Relief, an effective pain-relieving gel which can be used, on the advice of a pharmacist, to help. While many ibuprofen gels contain just one active ingredient, Mentholatum’s Deep Relief, a dual action gel, contains two – pain-relieving ibuprofen and levomenthol to help soothe pain quickly. Levomenthol produces an immediate soothing effect, while the prescription-strength ibuprofen in the 100g pack available from pharmacies reduces inflammation and brings long-lasting pain relief. Deep Relief is a clear, non-sticky and non-greasy gel with a mild and pleasant menthol fragrance and it is absorbed through the skin to help reduce inflammation at the point of pain. It is available in 30g and 50g tubes and, in pharmacy only, in a 100g pack which can be recommended by the pharmacist to relieve pain in mild arthritis. Deep Relief is available at pharmacies, including Boots stores, nationwide. Always read the label. ends *Statistics on Arthritis Care website www.arthritiscare.org.uk For further information on this press release, please contact Lesley Keen on 01483 764729 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of Tony & Lesley Keen PR in the following categories: Men's Interest, Health, Leisure & Hobbies, Home & Garden, Women's Interest & Beauty, Sport, Travel, Medical & Pharmaceutical, Retail & Fashion, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
