Can Ortho Jelly Help My Arthritis?

Can Ortho Jelly Help My Arthritis?

Arthritis is the nation’s leading cause of disability, impacting nearly 60 million adults, as well as over 300,000 children. If you’re one of the millions living with arthritis, you know how debilitating it can be. Even more, you know all too well the stress that comes with trying to find relief. 

Fortunately, there are many ways you can quickly and naturally alleviate arthritis. One of our most popular pain relief options is Ortho Jelly

Our team of dedicated medical professionals at Life Point Medical, LLC, led by Dr. Timothy Scott Beck is proud to offer this effective, all-natural option for managing arthritis and other pain conditions like it at our Clayton, Georgia, office.

What causes arthritis?

There are over 100 types of arthritis, each with its own unique way of damaging your joints. Here’s a closer look at two of the most common types.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is by far the most common type of arthritis. It’s commonly referred to as “wear-and-tear” arthritis because it occurs when the cushioning substances in your joints (cartilage) wear down over time and leave your bones to rub painfully against each other. 

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis also impacts the cartilage in your joints, but in this case, it stems from an autoimmune condition. Autoimmune conditions refer to a malfunction in your immune system that causes it to mistakenly attack healthy cells. In the case of rheumatoid arthritis, your immune system destroys the healthy lining of your joints. 

How can Ortho Jelly help? 

Whichever type of arthritis you have, the result is always the same: pain, stiffness, swelling, redness, and decreased range of motion. That’s where Ortho Jelly comes in. 

Ortho Jelly is a rub made from all-natural ingredients. Its purpose is to relieve pain and help your damaged joints heal by allowing your body to relax. Ortho Jelly contains a variety of essential oils and herbs, including the following: 

Menthol

Menthol comes from peppermint oil. It relieves pain by creating a pleasant diversion with its cooling sensation. 

Capsaicin

Ever bitten into a pepper and immediately regretted it? You can thank capsaicin for that. Capsaicin is a scientific term used to refer to the active component of chili peppers. This spicy substance effectively blocks pain messages to your nerves, so it’s great for managing arthritis symptoms. 

Roman and German chamomile oils

You may have seen chamomile on the label of your nighttime tea bags, and for good reason. Chamomile has a unique ability to relax muscles and reduce spasms.

Black pepper oil

Black pepper oil is another main ingredient in Ortho Jelly. It helps you manage pain by gently warming and relaxing your body. 

Together these organic and natural healers reduce inflammation, soothe pain, and help you fight back against arthritis.

Bonus: you can use Ortho Jelly for a variety of other pain conditions, including back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, muscular soreness, and even stress. You can also use Ortho Jelly to increase athletic performance. 

What can I expect?

When you rub Ortho Jelly on the painful areas of your body, you may notice a gentle warming sensation as the oils and herbs start to relax your body and reduce inflammation. Many of our patients experience near immediate relief.
