Arthritis, in all its forms, causes pain and discomfort.  The Relief Shop is dedicated to help those with arthritis and joint pain by carrying quality and reliable products that can make your life more comfortable.

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and occurs when the cartilage that covers the end of the joints wears away.

Symptoms of osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis) –

  • Your joints may feel tender, ache, burn and/or have sharp shooting pains in them. The pain may be constant or intermittent.
  • You may have swelling in your joints.  The cartilage of your joints acts as a cushion but as it wears away, tissues in the area become irritated causing pain and sometimes producing fluid that swells the joint.
  • You may experience stiffness, especially in the morning or after sitting for a while.
  • You may experience joint deformities from bone spurs.  A bone spur on the end joint of the finger is called a Heberden’s node.  A bone spur of the middle joint of the finger is called a Bouchard’s node. These nodes may not be painful but they can limit one’s range of motion.
  • You may not be able to fully flex, bend or extend an arthritic joint.
  • The muscles around an arthritic joint can get weak.
  • You may feel and/or hear creaking and grating in the joint.

The good news isShop The Relief Shop for all your home medical supplies needs.

  • It is not unusual for those with osteoarthritis to have years of pain-free intervals between symptoms.
  • Stiffness usually improves with mild activity.
  • The Relief Shop carries a whole section of products to help those with arthritis and joint pain.

The Relief Shop announces two product reviews from one happy customer!  The product reviewed is Ultra-Myossage Lotion. The health conditions the product helped are arthritis and plantar fasciitis. Here is what this satisfied customer has to say:

Review I – Plantar Fasciitis Pain Relief

“Three years ago, I developed Plantar Fasciitis , which is a painful inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot. Most of the time, my feet were so painful I could hardly walk and getting up from a sitting position was excruciating.

I took therapy, shots, did all types of foot exercises, and nothing seemed to help. About six months ago, I discovered and bought Ultra –Myossage Lotion (with Aloe Vera) from The Relief Shop website and started massaging my feet with it once each day.

This product has been a huge help to me and a fantastic relief for my feet. It is a smooth lotion that absorbs well and does not get tacky! After I massage it into my feet, I can walk on the carpet or floor and don’t have to worry about grease residue.

Also, my once rough heels and feet are now smooth and supple, and the pain has been reduced 95%. Oh what a joy to walk again without pain!”

Review II – Ultra-Myossage and Arthritis Pain Relief

“I’ve been using Ultra-Myossage Lotion for the last few months for Plantar Faciiatis in my feet. It has done such a great job, that when the arthritis pain in my finger and wrist joints flared up I thought I would try the product on my joints as well.

I was so pleased when, in just a couple of days of deep massaging it into my finger and wrist joints, the pain had subsided and was barely noticeable. Yeah Ultra -Myossage lotion! I am ordering it by the gallon now.”
