Sore muscles happen. The lifting, reaching, stretching, straining, pushing and pulling of everyday work and play eventually take a toll. When you need relief, reach for THERA-GESIC.


Don’t let the joint pain brought on by arthritis slow you down. Rely on the soothing properties of THERA-GESIC to ease the ache so you can carry on with life.


All kinds of everyday activities can stir up back pain. Too much time behind your desk; a long flight; overdoing it in the gym; an imprudent lift, bend or stretch. When back pain flares, help calm it fast with a cooling layer of THERA-GESIC.
