NSAIDs, applied topically, have been shown to provide superior short-term pain relief for up to 10 days when compared to placebo rubs. These topical NSAIDs, considered as adjunct therapy, also avoid gastrointestinal adverse effects and are useful alternatives when oral NSAIDs are not well tolerated or are difficult to administer. They are especially useful for treating small areas in order to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis of joints, such as the knees and hands.
