OTC joint pain reliever

 

 

 

Vizuri Consumer Healthcare recently announced the commercial launch of PainBloc24. It is a daily over-the-counter topical pain reliever for osteoarthritis (OA) joint pain. PainBloc24 has been clinically shown to help relieve OA knee joint pain for 24 hours with as little as one application per day, the company says. A patent-pending technology delivers the maximum allowable OTC dose of capsaicin to turn off nerve fibers that send pain signals from the joints to the brain, the company explains. Once off, the nerve fiber stays off for several weeks. Each topical use turns off more nerve fibers, building to full effect after several days
