What people are saying
“I used to pop Aleve and Tylenol, trying to get through the pain from my back, but it just wasn’t working. Now I focus on a multi-modal approach. I stretch before bed and when I wake up to keep my back muscles loose, and use creams a few times a week to keep the inflammation down. For flare-ups in pain, I use over-the-counter medications and a TENS device. It’s improved my quality of life so much. With these types of things it will never be 100%, but it is so much better than it was.”
