What is Flexiseq gel?

Flexiseq gel is a drug-free topical treatment for osteoarthritis pain which is applied directly to the joint. The gel works when key lubricating ingredients penetrates directly into joints affected by osteoarthritis.

Proper lubrication within the joints, can relieve the pain caused by osteoarthritis by reducing joint stiffness.

Other benefits of Flexiseq gel are

  • It helps relieve the pain and stiffness in the joints
  • It is suitable for all osteoarthritis patients
  • Flexiseq gel is a safe, drug-free pain relief gel and has fewer risks than other common pain killer medications.

It is available in two versions, Flexiseq Gel Osteoarthritis and Flexiseq Gel Active.

It is an over the counter medicine and can be purchased without a prescription in UK. Flexiseq gel is also available online from Prescription Doctor.


How does Flexiseq gel work?

Flexiseq lubricates the cartilage in the joints to prevent pain and brings relief from pain and stiffness in the joint.

Flexiseq gel contains incredibly hydrating, flexible and tiny oil droplets which directly target joint pain and stiffness. These oil droplets are called Sequessomes and penetrate the affected joint, when Flexiseq gel is applied to the skin.

Once inside your joint, they become suspended in the natural synovial fluid in your joint to create a lubricating barrier over any damaged cartilage. Flexiseq’s unique drug-free action targets joint pain, stiffness, which improves joint mobility and reduces the pain.


How do I apply Flexiseq gel?

Flexiseq gel is simple to use, and you can use it yourself by applying it to the affected joint.

When applying it to the knee(s), apply the gel around the knee joint.

Do not apply the gel to the knee cap.

  1. Apply the gel on the affected joints, whether knee, hip, wrist, ankle or other joints with the help of the index finger. For small joints, such as the ankle, hands and wrists, squeeze out enough cream to cover half the length of your index finger. For larger joints, such as the knees, shoulders and hip, apply a full index fingers lengths worth.
  2. Spread the gel properly over the soft tissue around the joint
  3. Do not rub in the gel too much after applying it to the affected area.
  4. Allow the area to dry completely.

Allow the gel to dry for at least 10 minutes, or until the skin is completely dry before covering the area.

The gel should not take more than 10 minutes to dry, but if it does not dry than you have probably applied too much. Wipe away the excess gel and let it dry completely.
