Stick - Extra Strength Dual Action
Medistik is great for using on sore muscles, like after lifting weights (usually a day or two after a workout is when I need it the most). It works fast as well: maybe five minutes after I apply it I can already feel the pain going away. I also use it sometimes after running to relieve the inflammation I get in my legs. It cools down/soothes my shins, and allows me to get on w/ my day. I highly recommend this product!
As a massage therapist, I use this product regularly on my clients and find that they respond to it very positively. Often they’ll end up buying their own Medistik at my recommendation, because they see how effective it is.
Many of my patients have used Medistik to give them relief between chiropractic adjustments to help them relaxe and sleep better. It is nice to have a natural pain reliever.
