Finding the Most Effective Pain Relief Patch for Your Needs

Persistent pain from arthritis, injuries, neuropathy, and other conditions can greatly interfere with work, daily activities, sleep, and quality of life.  Pain relief patch offers a valuable way to provide targeted relief. By delivering pain medication directly through the skin, patches avoid systemic effects while still powerfully blocking pain signals. 

How Do Pain Relief Patches Work?

Pain relief patches contain adhesive layers with medication embedded inside. The patches stick directly to clean skin near the source of pain. As you wear the patch, the medication slowly diffuses from the adhesive into the skin's layers including the epidermis, dermis, and fat layers. The skin's blood vessels absorb the medication into circulation, carrying it to nerves and pain receptors underlying the patch site. Ingredients like lidocaine, NSAIDs, opioids, capsaicin, and salicylates block sodium channels and interrupt pain signals, providing relief.

Most Effective Types of Pain Relief Patches

Lidocaine Patches

Lidocaine is a topical numbing agent that prevents pain signals from reaching the brain. Lidocaine patches like Lidoderm are proven highly effective for treating post-herpetic neuralgia, low back pain, and diabetic nerve pain. Studies show lidocaine patches improve function and reduce pain by 30-50% in these conditions.

Diclofenac Patches

Diclofenac is an NSAID drug that blocks inflammatory pain pathways. Diclofenac patches like Flector acts locally, reducing inflammation from sprains, strains, arthritis joints, and minor sports injuries. 

Capsaicin Patches

Capsaicin is derived from chili peppers and disables pain nerves by depleting neuropeptides. They can also relieve pain from arthritis, sprains, strains, and musculoskeletal injuries when applied to the affected area.

Salicylate Patches

These soothe mild muscle and joint aches.  Kangdi Medical uses a blend of menthol, methyl salicylate, and lidocaine to relieve minor arthritis, backache, strains, and sprains. Salicylate has an aspirin-like effect on pain pathways.
