Remember, folks...when fighting pain and inflammation, dangerous prescription drugs are not the only answer.
Now I know there are many snake oil salesmen out there trying to "guarantee" pain relief with this or that.
But the reality is that there are very few safe, non-prescription products which can help with pain.
Now much of what will and will not work depends on the type of pain and the location of the pain.
For example, lower back pain may respond to a good lower back support, such as our ProBack.
So before popping cheap, dangerous pills...explore your options a bit more.
You might find safer ways to deal with your pain!

Boy we get this question a lot!We've talked about pain relievers such as BioFreeze in sciatica. Our answer back then was:Now as anyone with sciatica will tell you, sciatic pain can be far from minor.
