Adventures in Pain Relief-trying capsicum plaster
My Journey with Capsicum Plaster for pain
Like millions suffering from chronic back aches and sore joints, I had tried endless over-the-counter pills and ointments with minimal pain relief. The side effects and risks of medications worry me so I avoid long-term use but still desperately need a solution. Despite initial hesitation to “heat-based” therapies, I decided to experiment with the purported benefits of capsicum plaster when a friend offered an extra patch. Here’s what I experienced in my adventure with capsicum:
First 24 Hours
The application was smooth although I questioned if the “warm” and tingling sensation meant it was working. By the next morning, my lower back did seem less tense which encouraged me to continue use after the initial trial patch I had.
1 Week Update
After 1 week of swapping a fresh plaster onto my back every 24 hours, my morning mobility improved. My range of motion increased while getting out of bed - a challenging task before due to my stiff, painful back. These results motivated me to purchase more patches and keep this up!
1 Month Evaluation
Now having used capsicum plaster for a month, I can sit for longer stretches working at my desk without nagging discomfort. Temporary relief kicks in each time I apply a fresh patch. While not a cure, it seems to be a helpful tool in managing my back pain.
For those struggling with chronic problems causing pain, discomfort, or limited mobility, capsicum plaster presents an accessible option using natural active ingredients without risks. Consider adding these patches to provide complementary relief while pursuing long-term solutions with your health provider!
