Go Deep for pain relief Wednesday 25 June 2008 PDF Print Millions of people in the UK suffer from chronic pain in muscles and joints. An estimated nine million suffer from arthritis* and it is believed that one in four of the over-50s suffer chronic knee pain**. While severe and prolonged pain needs specialist care, countless people manage mild pain at home. Deep Relief, from the Mentholatum Company, is an effective, dual-action pain-relieving gel. It is available in 30g and 50g tubes and, from pharmacies only, a 100g pack which can be used, on the advice of a pharmacist, to help mild arthritis pain. While many ibuprofen gels contain just one active ingredient, Mentholatum’s Deep Relief contains two – pain-relieving ibuprofen and levomenthol – to help soothe pain Levomenthol produces a soothing effect, while the prescription-strength ibuprofen reduces inflammation and brings pain relief. A spokesman for The Mentholatum Company says: “Topical products such as Deep Relief offer effective pain relief with fewer potential adverse effects than pills and tablets with the same active ingredient.” Deep Relief is a clear, non-sticky and non-greasy gel with a menthol fragrance which is absorbed through the skin to help reduce inflammation at the point of pain. Deep Relief is available from pharmacies, including Boots, nationwide. ends *Statistics on Arthritis Care website www.arthritiscare.org.uk ** Statistics on Arthritis Research Campaign website www.arc.org.uk For further information on this press release, please contact Lesley Keen 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, Women's Interest & Beauty, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
