I occasionally get back spasms from a disc issue i have in my lumbar spine. The spasms lead to tight muscles, which limit my mobility, and further increase pain.  These icy hot patches have been extremely effective in shutting down the inflammation cycle which can lead to me being in debilitating pain for up to a week.  In my opinion they are pretty pricey, and I definitely couldn't afford to use them on a regular basis, but I do keep a box in my medicine cabinet for those few times a month when I really need widespread relief. I will say that my whole family knows when I'm using one, and none of them like the way they smell.  The adhesive can irritate my skin if I truly wear it on my whole back for 8+ hours, but it does the trick, so it's worth it.

I have pretty severe back, neck and shoulder pain. I've been in several serious accidents that have left my bones and muscles somewhat of a mangled mess. I use icy hot on an almost daily basis, and it's absolutely incredible. I would refrain from touching your face or rubbing your eyes (for obvious reasons). It goes into action pretty much immediately once it's applied. The ice helps to freeze up whatever it is that needs to be worked on, and when the heat sets in, it soothes and unties any tension that's left over. It doesn't always do the trick if you have pretty severe chronic pain, but if you're like me, any help is better than none. I would definitely recommend this for everything from a minor sports injury to chronic pain sufferers.

I really like this product. I had a weird injury where I got hit by a car and it left my leg messed up. I was still running, and my leg responded well to heat and cold. Well you can't really carry around an ice pack or heating pack around all day so I looked for something I could use. I found these patches and thought I would try them out. They worked great! The heat felt really good and relaxing on my leg, I would highly recommend using this instead of a heating pack.

As someone who has suffered from long-term low back problems these patches can be a lifesaver. They only stick well once (so make sure you are happy with the placement before you put them down) and the smell does rub off onto clothing, but this works far better than other products I've used to relieve back pain. I recommend placing one on before bed and waking up feeling better the next morning.

This product is really good for individuals who have a certain ache or pain. For me, I get lower back pain after working out too much. This product is perfect for me to use at night when I am relaxing and trying to get my muscles to relax for my workout the next day. It has really been a lifesaver! The packs usually come with about 5 patches, and they definitely last for about 8-12 hours.

My boyfriend and I use this all the time. I like it because you can put it on and it gives such good muscle relief without having to worry about putting on cream and getting it all over the place or in your eye. I always buy the patches instead. They don't always stay on though.

They stick very nicely & don't shift around. They cover a pretty large area. They are a little pricey but the menthol feeling is soothing to me. Even though they don't really take all of the pain away they are soothing. Like how certain scents comfort you & make you feel better. I would buy them again if I ever had the extra money.

I was surprised by how effective these were, in combination with Alleve, for reducing the pain in my lower back when I got hurt in yoga. Yep, a yoga injury. But my back ached, and I could hardly move. The cold wasn't too cold, and the hot was just right, and they really did last for a long time. I keep them in the medicine box now, just in case.

This product I use on the daily even if I don't workout. Many times I wake up in an awkward position and tend to get kinks in my back, I also work in a factory where pain and strains are a daily struggle. IcyHot is my go-to for instant pain relief, the product is great and works! We keep this stocked up in our house!
