ENCINITAS, Calif., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- DRJ Group Inc., the makers of all-natural Stopain(R) topical analgesics, today announced the results of an informal study conducted with chronic pain sufferers at two adult foster care facilities.
The test was conducted with residents living at two facilities owned by Leon and Paulette Hanson in Cannon Falls, Minn. The Hansons approached the DRJ Group about conducting an informal study after receiving a complimentary sample of Stopain.
"I was skeptical, but after our test I am convinced that this product works," said Leon Hanson. "I would recommend it--in fact, I have recommended it to others. I am so glad we found Stopain."
"Our business philosophy is to focus on customer feedback when it comes to managing pain," said Bob Miller, president and CEO of DRJ Group, Inc. "When Leon mentioned his residents and their ongoing struggle to manage pain, we were happy to provide Stopain and are very pleased with the results."
Residents began using Stopain in October 2008. Here are Hanson's accounts of two of his residents' experiences with Stopain:
Resident #1: One resident who tried Stopain was a woman in her 90s with shoulder pain that developed after years of manual farm labor. According to Hanson, she had tried a series of pain medications, heat wraps and ointments with no significant relief. When staff at the facility began applying Stopain to her shoulder before her daily nap, she noticed the cooling effect immediately. Hanson says by using Stopain, she was able to sustain relief without needing pain pills.
Resident #2: Another resident who reported relief from Stopain was an 89-year-old woman. Hanson says she developed severe, persistent shoulder pain following a stroke. According to doctors, the shoulder pain did not come from the stroke; the cause of the pain is unknown. After three or four applications of Stopain, she reported significant relief. Hanson explained that the woman used to wince in pain whenever staff lifted her, but the pain subsided after using Stopain.
The active ingredient in Stopain is menthol, recognized by the Food and Drug Administration as an analgesic that provides temporary relief for minor pains and stiffness of arthritis, muscle aches, strains and simple backaches. Stopain products include the top-selling spray and roll-on in the topical analgesics category.
