lineament

Do any of you use a lineament like “Tiger Balm”, “Heat”, “Flex All”, etc. If so when and why? Are there any studies which indicate useage promotes blood flow, healing, etc.

I’ve been expeiencing(for months)muscular pain in left shoulder, rotater and bicep. Spent lots o’ money on massage and chiro–no joy. Last chiro told not to go the local cattle/horse supply store to purchase DMSO. I disregarded his instructions and purchased same. Upon first application of DMSO the pain disappeared for approximately 24-30 hours. Since then, whenever pain returns, I slop it on, & voila!, pain goes away.
You might give it ride.
