still trying for days at a time. Sometimes that's all that helps. I also use thermacare heat wraps or a heating pad, I sleep on a low density foam mattress.

I have 3 spinal injuries, a cyst on my sciatic nerve, sacriliitis, and spinal stenosis. I could not walk nor even roll out of bed.

Works for awhile as needed

Working / Worked
Sometimes it works, but I have kids so I don't get to rest very often. After surgeries it was neccessary.
