Top 5 Products To Seriously Reduce Knee Pain

Knee injuries make up about 55% of all sports related injuries. On top of that, continued stress to that joint, whether it be sports related or not, can also lead to tendonitis and even arthritis. If you're one of the many who suffer from knee pain, you may want to try one or a couple of these products to help alleviate that pain.

While treating knee pain is a separate monster (one that involves mobility exercises, weight loss, pain medications and in some cases, surgery), you can take steps to alleviate the pain. Whether your knee pain be from an injury, mobility problems or simple overuse, these 5 products will help with that pain.



Biofreeze is classified as a topical analgesic. It's one of those "rub it on and feel instant relief" products. It works through a "counter irritant" mechanism. The menthol in Biofreeze creates a sensation that overrides the pain signals sent from the brain, so when your knee starts throbbing, just grab some Biofreeze, rub it on and feel that tingling sensation as the pain subsides. 

You can't get Biofreeze at the grocery store. The company wants only hands-on healthcare practitioners to distribute the product, but Amazon is one of the retailers the Biofreeze company trusts. You can get a pack of three for about $25. 

Sunbeam Heating Pad

Heat is one way to losen up joints and relieve pain. Heat therapy increases blood flow and allows muscles to relax. Moist heat gives you deep theraputic pain relief. The Sunbeam Heating Pad not only employs an Xpress Heat Technology, which warms the pad faster, but it also has a moist heat option. 

Of course Sunbeam isn't the only maker of heating pads and certainly not the only one that utilizes moist heat therapy, but this particular heating pad is a great deal at $30. It's extra large size also allows you to warm up larger muscle groups.

Knee Sleeves

The company CompressionZ specializes in making compression sleeves. Their Knee Sleeves are made of high performance material that keeps you warm in cold temperatures and cool in the heat. Knee sleeves provide compression (and sometimes padding, depending on the sleeve you get) to the joint which reduces inflammation and in turn, prevents and reduces pain. 

These Knee Sleeves by CompressionZ are yet another great product you can get on Amazon. Currently they're on sale. Depending on what size you order you will only spend around $30 for a pair. 

Glucosamine And Chondroitin Supplements

In any joint, you have cartilage, which acts as a cushion between the bones. Glucosamine and chondroitin are both found in normal cartilage. The idea behind taking these supplements is that they slow joint deterioration and relieve pain. Zenwise Labs has a supplement that contains these two ingredients along with MSM sulfer, which is thought to be helpful in reducing joint pain --its  Joint Support Supplement 

This supplement contains 1500mg of glucosamine, 1200mg of chondroitin and 1000 mg MSM per serving along with 5 mg of hyaluronic acid. The pills are large and the daily dosage is 3 pills, but if you use them diligently, you should feel noticeably better. There are also lots of other joint supplements available, so it should not be difficult to find one that will work for you. The key is to try them for a few months and see if you too can notice a helpful difference.

Revlon Paraffin Bath

The idea behind the paraffin bath is the same behind the heating pad. Revlon's Paraffin Bath allows you to use the paraffin wax around joints to relieve pain. It won't run all over the place and get you messy, and the paraffin wax will remove dead skin on the surface, leaving your joints not only pain free, but silky smooth and soft. 

You can research different paraffin baths, or you can go with Revlon's product. It's quality and affordable at about $160. Of course, that's a little more than a heating pad, but you get the added benefit of smooth silky skin (you can use on your face or any other part of your body as well).
