My fiancé was in a motorcycle accident and has quite a few stainless steel pieces in his lower leg/ankle area. We've had a lot of rain this year and he struggled with it all winter. He used this several times a day and it really provided some relief for him. It didn't smell too much like medicine... it's was not scent free by any means but it wasn't nearly as bad as some products he's tried. It didn't have that unbearable burning sensation like others. And it didn't irritate his skin. His skin is very sensitive around the surgery/injury site and we've had problems with different products in the past, but this one didn't cause any irritation even when using it a few times a day.This isn't a cure all solution but it definitely works and brings some relief.
I get the 4 ounce bottles in a 3 pack for the most savings. My friend suffers from tremendous pain and Penetrex works by far the best of anything we tried. My son also uses it. I believe with this order, I have purchased 9 bottles. A little goes a long way, but I definitely recommend the larger 4 ounce over the 2 ounce size.
Very happy with product helps to ease pain in my hips and shoulder makes everything feel a little looser so it's easier to move around
I use the product to ease the arthritis symptoms in my thumbs. It soothes and allows me to function much better. Have also discovered it works great on sore tight muscles. I love this stuff and now have several friends using it.
Yeah this thing was crap. If you're in pain and Advil isn't working for you then your problems are bigger than some cream off amazon isn't going to be the miracle that you think it's going to be. Go to a doctor and see a specialist. Which I did minus the money spent for this and time
This is the only thing that actually helps my mom get relief from her arthritis pain. She has tried everything then someone suggested Penetrex and she tried it and has been a repeat customer since. She is 82 and doesn't use a computer, otherwise she would be happy to post a glowing review.
one of the only products my wife has found to help ease some of her Fibromyalgia pain. works great for general pain also
Wonderful product and really helps
I had knee surgery on 2/22/17 and started using Penetrex after the incision healed. I did know if th product was working so I stopped using it. Within 3 days, I stared having terrible pain with swelling. I went back to Penetrex twice a day and am pain free. It works
My mom has been taking pain meds several times a day for years after a month of rubbing this on her hips she tells me that she no longer has the need for the pain meds. I will be purchasing this for her again.
I have quite a bit of arthritis in an ankle I broke at age 26. At age 55 I had to have it fused. I thought that now the pain will be gone. But alas 10 years later I have a dull ache that keeps me from falling asleep. I have really struggled with sleeplessness. Now using this cream on my ankle before bedtime I am falling asleep with no pain. I've used the product for two weeks now and had 12 days out of 14 with no pain. Too me that is a godsend. Thank you so much for making the product and for all the customers out there taking their time to add a review. I stumbled on this product on Amazon and read the many reviews. Now I'm letting others know too.
Tried this on a number of different aches and pains, from sore knees, neck, muscle and joint paint etc. Followed the directions exactly and applied for several days in each case and never felt any relief of any kind.
I don't understand how this stuff gets so many good reviews. I feel like I'm of the few who realizes it's a sham.Zero results - nada, nothing. Was looking for something topical so I didn't have to rely on motrin during my joint pain flare-ups. I was hopeful with all the glowing reviews & really thought I'd get some relief.I didn't get ANY relief..not even a teeny tiny bit! It just felt like a very emollient lotion. I used it 5+ times a day... massaging it in and literally couldn't feel any difference. My swollen joint got larger & more inflamed as I wanted for this cream to kick in.Finally the pain was bad enough I took 1/2 a motrin & pain, swelling & inflammation subsided. Also, I felt it sneaky the packaging looks pretty decent sized until you realize the product is INSIDE another jar..like a nesting doll.Very expensive for such a tiny amount that doesn't even work. Buy locally so you can return it when it doesn't work.
This may seem odd but I actually use Penetrex on my horse. She has one front leg that has severe osteoarthritis at the knee. I had used a topical cream recommend by our vet, but for some reason that was discontinued. I did some research and found Penetrex, tried it, and it works great on her, plus it doesn't cost as much as what I was paying through a veterinarian!
works for me but could use a booster! very very little smell which is a huge plus. I use it in the mourning and before bed everyday.I buy at Amazon3 / 4 oz at a time for a better price.
Penetrex is awesome! It's the first thing I have found to relieve the pain of Plantars Fasciitis, which is horrific! It is also beneficial for the arthritis I have in my thumb, which is also very painful. I carry a jar in my purse, one on the bedside table, and another in the kitchen. Love this stuff! Highly recommend for any inflammation problems. It Works! I even put it on my FB page!
I am a repeat customer to this amazing product. It has helped to relieve symptoms of my tendonitis
