The most common joint affected by arthritis is the MP joint of the great toe. Arthritis here can result in pain with walking, standing, reaching overhead. Over time, arthritis at this point can result in bunion deformity and reduced flexibility of the foot.
I have had very good response using the high concentration MSM cream, Kink-Ease. It is very inexpensive, and provides pain relief in as little as 15 to 30 seconds.
Best applied before climbing into bed, it can be used several times, daily. Effects last 2-4 hours, or more.
