Celadrin Cream by Doctor's Best
Doctors Best Celadrin Cream 2 oz. (57g)
Doctors Best Celadrin Cream is a topical analgesic pain relief with science based nutrition. Celadrin Cream with menthol and fatty acid esters provides minor pain relief for sore muscles and joints and the surrounding areas.
Benefits of Topical Celadrin Cream
Celadrin Cream can also be an effective option for topical joint pain relief. Celadrin fatty acid esters combined with 1.25% USP grade natural menthol provides minor pain relief for sore muscles and joints and the surrounding areas. When applied topically, Celadrin is well-absorbed and can act locally to help maintain joint comfort and increase the range of motion of joints.
Studies have confirmed the benefits of topical applications of the cream directly to sore joints. In a double-blind placebo-controlled trial published in the Journal of Rheumatology in 2004, forty individual with sore knee joints participated.Twenty patients were given Celadrin Cream and 20 others were assigned a placebo cream to be applied topically twice daily for 30 days. Participants were assessed on various orthopedic measures of improvement. At the end of the study, the researchers noted that the Celadrin Cream was an effective treatment for improving knee ROM, ability to ascend/descend stairs, ability to rise from sitting, walk and sit down, and unilateral balance. No changes were seen in the placebo group.
A second study was conducted by the same group of researchers using a cream consisting of Celadrin and menthol. In this trial, participants who had significant functional performance deficiencies of elbow, knee or wrist joints were given the cream and asked to apply it twice daily for one week.
Measure of comfort and performance we reassessed before the treatment and again after one week. The researchers found significant improvement with the use of the cream. Overall, there was a significant improvement in joint range of motion, comfort levels, muscular endurance and joint function. Even in the relatively short period of this trial (only 1 week), the cream was deemed to be effective for enhancing joint function in these participants.
