Helps with my chronic back painProduct Family:Tinctures & DropsProducts Used:2000 mg tincture and topical cream also
I have suffered from chronic lower back pain, exacerbated by exercise, for several years. I am 74 years old and a former long distance runner. Unlike so many aging long distance runners, my knees and hips are fine, but my back is a killer. There is no "cure" and I've tried everything, literally from acupuncture to chiro to physical therapy to meloxicam to just about everything else short of surgery. But for pain relief, nothing has worked better than putting the tincture under my tongue for a minute or two before swallowing and rubbing the lotion into my left and right lower back. The relief is almost immediate and it lasts for between 4 and 6 hours. I don't do it every day because it is expensive and the pain is often tolerable. But on days when I wish to play golf, go for a long hike or power walk, it is great to know that I have a way to minimize my discomfort by about 90% for at least a few hours.
