Arthri-Med appears to be an attractive pain reliever, especially to those fed up with traditional chemically laced medicines. The transdermal patch system appears to be effective and easy to use. Place the patch on the affected area and wait for the results. However, the product does have its drawbacks. Like any natural product, claims to its efficacy need to be researched. Oftentimes, these supplements and products will make endorse unproven research. Even if Arthri-Med does live up to its claims, the product may be too expensive for some and may not be anymore effective than traditional medicine. Just like any self-treatment, whether traditional or holistic, Arthri-Med should not be used as a substitute for professional care. If pain continues, see a doctor.
