I suffer from degenerate disc disease. I have had 3 major operations in the past several years. While at first I had relief from said operations, over time the pain came back. I have taken and still am taking pain medicines to help me through the day. Then, I discovered Reliaderm... Since I have started using this roll on cream, my pain in my neck and back has noticeably decreased. I try to use it at least 3 times a day for maximum relief. Since I started using the cream, I have been able to decrease my pain medication significantly. It's so easy to use, I tuck in my purse for relief on the go. I am so glad I have found this wonderful product.
