TRY YOUR LUCK: Track Down Your Inner Power with Advil® 12 Hour!

This body just ain’t what it used to be, y’all.

At 34 I’m still young, but you’d be surprised how much one can use their flesh and bones in that time! I’ve become a father, often carrying 70 lbs. of toddler weight between my two boys; I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2012, pushing my body to places I didn’t even know existed; and still have trouble from time to time with a rugby injury from my childhood. And while I deal with the odd pain now and then, I know there’re Canadians aplenty who need to deal with so much more.

Long-lasting body pain may be more common as we get older, but it shouldn’t stop us from enjoying life and accomplishing all we want to. Research has found that a combination of treatment methods, including physiotherapy, massage therapy and medications, show good results when managing long-lasting pain.

Let’s face it—we’re not exactly in the physical prime of our species’ history. Sure, we’ve eradicated illnesses and have longer life expectancies than ever, but do we take care of these bodies as we age? Years of bad behaviour eventually catch up—even if we’re able-bodied, we’ll usually have future aches and pains whether we like it or not!

Which makes it fortunate that right along with these lifestyle changes come advances in medical science, including Advil 12 Hour®, a non-prescription pain reliever that keeps working for up to 12 hours.

Advil 12 Hour — Because Pain Shouldn’t Stop You From Staying ACTIVE.

If you’ve ever needed to deal with long-lasting body pain, you’re all too familiar with the challenges that go with it—including not being able to stay active and do everything you want to do. Advil 12 Hour® aims to help Canadians manage their body, joint and muscle pain, letting them stay active so they can enjoy the summer activities they love.

But even though ibuprofen—the active ingredient in all Advil products—has been clinically proven to relieve inflammatory pain, relieving pain is only the first step! If you want to make the most of your summer, check out these Advil 12 Hour “Keep Moving This Summer” tips to help you along!


  • Stay Active: Body pain may lead you to avoid physical activity. But low-impact activities like walking, stretching or light exercises can actually help manage pain and even increase strength and flexibility.
  • Get Relief: To help relieve your pain so you can accomplish everything you want to, try a non-prescription pain reliever. For those looking to replace their pain reliever with one convenient pill, just one Advil 12 Hour pill keeps working throughout the day for up to 12 hours.
  • Hot and Cold: Direct heat from hot packs or a warm bath can help relax tight muscles, while ice packs can help reduce inflammation and ease pain.

These tips are suggestions and do not replace medical advice. Please speak with your healthcare provider for medical advice.

  1. I would get myself a jump rope and jump as if i was in grade 5 all over again 🙂 oh and go for a long run. none of this just down the street business

  2. I would hike the trails that are more challenging and take up running. After my abdominal surgery I’ve been slowly working on getting my strength back but, pain and back aches sometimes holds me back.

  3. I would for sure spend the day hiking if pain were not a factor! Sometimes I stay home from a planned hike, just in case I can’t make it all the way – I don’t like the idea of ruining a hike for the whole group!

  4. I love taking long hikes, and I also love to go for a good rollerblade ride, maybe even a bike ride its the lower back that holds me back to the things I love

  5. If pain wasn’t an issue I would enjoy playing badminton once again with the family, I am not a big sports person but that was one game I enjoyed playing!!

  6. I’d do gardening like I used to down on my hands and knees, planting flowers, vegtables and also pulling weeds etc. I do a little, but not the hard stuff. I know my limit. I still love getting out and walking and going places of interest. I just suck it up and go and try not to let it hold me back completely!!

  7. If I didn’t get back pain I’d love to do more gardening. Weeding isn’t fun but has to be done, however after bending down for 20 mins I can hardly straighten up again. The joys of getting old!

  8. I suffer from fibromyalgia and chronic piriformis syndrome. If it weren’t for the pain that I experience, I would be able to spend more time outdoors playing with my kids.

  9. If I wasn’t in constant pain I would run after my kids at the park, we could go for longer walks. I could play soccer more often

  10. If pain wasn’t holding me back I would bike further ,and go hiking more often.These are the kind of activities that I really enjoy the most and I hate when I go into pain and have to turn back.

  11. If not for the pain, I’d have all the painting jobs on my To Do List crossed off, spend more time at the gym and on the hiking trails.

  12. I’d probably stay up later. I go to bed early when I’m in pain or have a hot bath or use a heating pad. I still walk a lot, because I know if I’m not active its even worse but right now its my arms and shoulders (I know I have arthritis in my left shoulder) I probably hurt them at work and last time it took 4 months off work for the tear to heal.
