HYPO DX Arthritis Pain can be used for the temporary relief of arthritis pain in the hands, wrists, elbows, arms, lower back, legs, feet, ankles and knees. It can help in patients with osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and mainly affects cartilage. When you have OA, your cartilage begins to break down and wear away, resulting in joint pain and stiffness. OA occurs more frequently when you get older and the pain can gradually worsen over time.
HYPO DX works similarly to oral NSAIDs like naproxen by temporarily blocking the production of pain-signaling chemicals called prostaglandins. It works by penetrating deep through your skin to deliver NSAID medicine and relieve arthritis pain.
