Over the last few years I have herniated the discs in my low back 4 times. It is a pain I cannot even begin to describe. Last January I was in severe pain and I visited a Saje location. After speaking to the wonderful people at the store, they recommended this product. It did not take the pain away (disc pain is very different from muscle pain), but it helped with the aches around my spine and my muscles from over-compensating. I put it on EVERY morning after I get out of the shower and I also put it on before every workout. I believe it has helped me get my back pain under control where I can live a fairly normal life again.
