  • Foot, ankle and knee arthritis pain can really get in the way of an active lifestyle, making it a challenge to do everything you want to do. This is because with osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, the cartilage, which cushions the joints and prevents the bones from rubbing against each other, begins to break down and wear away, resulting in joint pain and stiffness. This pain develops slowly and can gradually worsen over time.
  • Dr. Scholl’s® Arthritis Pain Reliever is a gel that contains a medicine called diclofenac sodium which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). This medicated gel is applied to the skin, directly to the site of the pain, temporarily blocking the production of pain signaling chemicals called prostaglandins. It works by penetrating through your skin at the application site to deliver powerful arthritis pain relief. It is clinically proven to relieve arthritis pain.
