MuscleCare Extra-Strength Roll-On Review
MuscleCare Extra Strength Roll-on is the strongest all natural, scientifically based, topical analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-spasmodic for over the counter sales. Professional TherapyMuscle Care Roll-on combines menthol and camphor for immediate pain relief with magnesium, glucosamine, MSM and chondroitin to relax muscle tension, improve circulation, promote healing and reset the muscle in its normal resting length. The roll-on offers the convenience of applying MuscleCare in those hard to reach areas of the back without using your hands. This product is great for quick application in the workplace or in an athletic arena. The Extra Strength Roll-on is effective in as little as 30 seconds. This helps you to reduce pain and get back to the things you love!
My review: This product sounded like a godsend to me because I suffer from lower back pain that gets really bad after I exercise. MuscleCare isn't going to cure your muscle pains, but it is a temporary solution for sore muscles, so I wasn't expecting this to be a miracle product or anything. The roll-on bottle is very convenient to use, and it's easy too—it doesn't get all over your hands and clothes, and you can use it on the go as well.
The formula smells like menthol—like an ace bandage you stick on your back—and it has a cooling sensation. It definitely felt good and soothing on my skin, but I can't really say if it actually alleviated pain. I used it after my workouts for a little over a week and each time I liked the feeling, but my back muscles (both lower and upper) continued to hurt, even after the next day. (Usually my back pain can be alleviated with stretching).
I might try this on other body parts such as my abs or legs sometime to see if I get better results. Overall, it's not a disappoint product but I can't exactly say it's "clinically proven" either.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
