"The cream helps immediately after application. I smear them on my knees and back every day after a long day of work. I am only 31 years old, and my work at the plant is already affecting me. But you have to earn money. Absorbs well, does not leave greasy stains on clothes."
"All my life behind the wheel, an experienced truck driver. Sometimes you have to be on flights all day long, practically without sleep or stops. Due to the fact that I did not change the position for a long time, my back began to hurt a lot. Then the further, the more the lower back hurts, I could not straighten or bend. I went to all sorts of doctors, gave injections, sent for warming up. It helped, it's true, but not for long. I thought I’d have to quit my job. Where am I going? I can’t do anything else. I saw this cream on the Internet by accident. I decided to buy. He began to smear. It helps better than any warming up, the pain goes away for a long time, the back began to move as in youth. Nice cream."
