Top Questions No one has asked a question yet! Be the first!
Occasionally my back hurts more than usual (from sitting poorly or doing the dishes or other things) and when I ran out of the bengay stuff the chiropractor had given me, the heating pad by itself (with the stretches) didn't work as well. However, I bought this the other day and it's done wonders.
Before the thing happened to my back, I used to be an avid back cracker. Then afterwards, I haven't been able to twist my back enough to do so (not that I mind, but it's good for a comparison between where my back was before and where it is now). In just the past few days of using this stuff when I test to see how much I can twist my back, I've been able to hear a crack or two (once I even bent sideways and heard a nice row of eight or so cracks).
Also, the stuff works in mere seconds. It's quite amazing really. The day I got this stuff I had done three loads of dishes (washing prior to putting them in the dishwasher) and had an icy hot patch on my back. My back was killing me and the icy hot patch was doing okay but I was definitely hurting in places the icy hot patch wasn't touching. I decided to rub this stuff on around the icy hot patch and the rest of my back and it started working almost instantly. I then decided to scrap the icy hot patch and just rub this stuff where that was.
I rub this stuff on when I do something that I know will probably cause my back some pain (before/after/while I'm doing whatever it is) and before I go to sleep (sometimes just sleeping the wrong way caused pain in the morning) and it does great to keep the pain away.
I'll probably make another visit to the chiropractor at some point just to see if we can get this worked out for good, but until then, this stuff is a lifesaver.
