Tennis elbow, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, post-surgery pain, arthritis, tendonitis, shin splints… oh my, I know so many people who have some kind of ongoing trouble!
I’ve been searching for relief for years now for my own issues that are caused by arthritis.
I tried almost everything except a full body transplant. Then about a year ago my husband started getting really bad plantar fasciitis in his heel.
He was desperate to find some relief that wasn’t just popping pills. He tried acupuncture, physical therapy and expensive chiropractor sessions and still had ongoing pain that really impacted on his day to day life.
Finally a friend suggested we try ordering some Penetrex cream that we could both try and so here’s my Penetrex review.

What is Penetrex cream?
Penetrex cream is an anti-inflammatory that penetrates the skin. It’s effective because ingredients actually treat the pain not just cover it up. It’s designed for all types of joint and muscular pain. It was designed and is manufactured in California.
List of ingredients on the back of my product:
I found out that the latest formula doesn’t include any parabens which is great for me as I try to avoid this type of additive in my cosmetic products.
How does it work?
You apply the Penetrex cream to the area of discomfort about 3-4 times a day for 7-10 days. After 7-10 days you keep applying like that or just as needed. You need to massage it right into the area. The cream doesn’t have a strong smell which is good.
What results did we get?
Me – Arthritic Knees
I’ve been applying Penetrex cream to my arthritic knees for about 3 months.
I didn’t notice immediate relief like some people do, but I have definitely noticed that it has improved my condition gradually.
I apply up to 3 times a day as it does provide comfort throughout the day and allows me to get on with activities that would have been a real hindrance. I noticed that it works better when you totally rub it all in.
So whilst it’s not a miracle cure it definitely provides a type of comfort and relief that I haven’t been able to find with other topical creams.
I’ll definitely continue to use it and order on a regular basis as I’m not sure I could do without now.
My husband – plantar fasciitis
My husband has also used the cream for about 3 months. He rubs it into the tendon as well as the arch and heel of his foot every night.
He has noticed quite a dramatic improvement to the point where he thinks it has almost gone away!
My husband got into the routine of massaging the area of discomfort every night when he put on the cream which he found helped.
He used this video on Youtube as a guide. If you’re interested in finding an effective massage technique do a search on Youtube!
After trying a number of different topical creams including Emu Oil and Tigerbalm as well as trying all sorts of therapeutic options we are both really happy with the Penetrex cream.
My husband is actually thrilled at his results. We use the cream as part of our daily rituals now and so I make sure to always have some on hand.
We recently gave my mother in law a jar to try on her arthritic thumbs, which she has real issues with, and she is also getting good results.
So whilst it isn’t a miracle cure, anything that helps me get through the day with my terrible knee pain is totally worth the cost for me.
We like knowing that it is actually treating the issue not just masking the pain too. Another bonus is that you can use it on any type of area so it’s handy to have some ready in the cupboard.
My husband recently did some bush walking and applied it to his tight calves afterwards and found that it made a real difference.
How to buy Penetrex anti inflammatory cream
If you are interested to give Penetrex cream a try, I have found that ordering from Amazon is the easiest option and I’ve ordered a few times now.
I’m pretty happy with the delivery and service so far. I think the company provides a full full refund at any time if it doesn’t work so you can try it and get your money back if you don’t see results.
I would really love to hear your experiences with the product too. Did it help you too? Maybe you can suggest something else? Please feel free to get in touch as I’m always open to hearing from fellow sufferers!
