I have a friend* who has back and knee problems. He used to play baseball in his younger days (now he just watches baseball on TV), and over the course of years of playing baseball, his knees have really started to bother him. Because he also has a pretty physical job, his knees still cause him a lot of pain. They get inflamed and are pretty achey. I feel bad for him. He's tried a lot of different medicines and nothing gives him much relief for very long. He spends a lot of time on the weekends resting, instead of helping his wife with things that need to be done around the house. He has a new baby too.
I recently came across a product that I think might help him out. It's called Freeze It Gel.
Freeze It can be used for old sports injuries like my friend* has, or for other afflictions like arthritis pain, pain from exercising and everyday aches and pains. I think it would probably feel great right now on my back, ever since I had Anthony I've had a backache. The same thing happened after Amelia, and it slowly went away. I bet if I used Freeze It Gel, I would be in less pain more quickly.
This stuff can be used up to four times a day, and it comes in a 3 oz roll on, or a 4 ounce tube of cream. I think the cream would be best so you can see how much has been used, and where it has been applied. Freeze It can be found in almost any drug store.
*This is of course not my husband, since my husband doesn't like it when I blog about him. This is a totally different guy in his 30's who likes baseball. Got it?
