These patches WORK so well! I use them for occasional aches and pains by applying right before bed. Relief is almost immediate, and by the time I wake up I feel significantly better. I have purchased several boxes of these pain relieving patches because they work so well!
I used to have lower back pain and used the Icy Hot Extra Strength Back Medicated Pain Relieving patches. They are affordable and you usually can find coupons. They are very effective, and feel cold when they are first put on. I highly recommend.
Out of all the creams and patches I've tried, these are one of the best on the market. They still aren't as good as Tiger Balm or Thermacare, but if you're looking for this specific type of product, it works well and helps manage pain well.
Icy HOT is hot and it burns and itches, it works but the strength is a little much for me, I currently use another brand just because the strength I will recommend these but I will warn people as well because it will cause skin irritation if your sensitive like me
As a student-athlete these back patches are a must have for me! Icy Hot targets the specific area and starts relieving pain in around 15 minutes. I use them constantly and find them so effective! If I run out I immediately go out and get some, I can never be without my back patches!!!
I love the patch option of Icy Hot in order to avoid the mess from the gel. This is a great option for a condensed back ache. While you still need the gel for other areas this product is awesome. There are cheaper options of Icy Hot that are not as great of an option.
I use Icy Hot Extra Strength patches often for my shoulders when I feel a lot of tension building. They work perfectly to relax my muscles and give me the relief I'm looking for. The scent is definitely very strong, but I have still worn them out in public before.
I used to use these all the time when I played softball. Really helped to heal my muscles after games and was more convenient then using ice packs or rice bags. I could still go out with my team after and not have to lay down at home so I could ice/heat my muscles.
I have lower back issues and I feel it after doing hair and being on my feet and bending over at the shampoo bowl. I am able to fall asleep with the patch with out the overwhelming smell or the cream . I like this better as it is more discreet
