Works for me.
Keith Fitzsimmons,
As a Chartered Physiotherapist I can highly recommend the Actipatch in dealing with chronic pain. I use these myself and have recommended them to many patients with great results. It gives you the ability to deal with daily activities and reduces all joint pain including spine, knees and hips. If in doubt give a try you have nothing to loose for £25.
