Being that it is homeopathic, it works differently than other over the counter pain relief cream. Instead of just masking the pain you are having, it stimulates your body to heal the damaged area.
"Doctor-recommended Topricin® is called "a miracle treatment" by doctors and patients alike. It works because it doesn't just mask the pain. Topricin® uses no volatile oils such as camphor, menthol, or irritating chemicals and can be used as many times a day as needed with no fear of overuse or interference with other medications.For the purposes of this review, Topricin sent me one of each tube and I am so glad they did. The foot therapy cream relieves nerve pain, heel pain, bunion pain, arch pain, ankle swelling, tired aching feet, sports injuries. For me it's the tired aching feet that is the culprit. I use it on my feet before going to bed and notice that I don't get the foot pain as often.

The Topricin Junior is first aid for aches & pains, bumps & bruises, sore legs, strains, sprains and bug bites. With my kids, my son is very go-with-the-flow and never complains about anything - ever. My daughter on the other hand complains for the both of them. Not one day goes by without her having some sort of pain somewhere. She's so dramatic. With that being said, I do put the Topricin Junior to use on her complaints. If her leg or side hurts, we put some cream on it. So I can't say for sure if it really is helping or if she is happy just to have her pretend pain healed. The original cream does work on me so it's gotta be doing her some good. Keep a tube in your diaper bag or purse.
The original Topricin is the one that I use the most. When I first got it, the pain that I was having constantly was in my hip so I was using the cream on it and got discouraged when it didn't have any relief. I honestly don't know why my hip was hurting so badly but it's cleared up now finally. I do have recurring back pain because I am a terrible sloucher, especially while at my computer which is a lot! Not to mention when I work for my 12 hour shift, it's also sitting in front of computers. Tis my life. The pain that I get is in my mid and lower back. As I am sitting here now, there is Topricin on my mid back and it really does feel better. This has become more of a daily regimen for me and I'm glad I got the chance to try it out.
