Reviews for Aspercreme

“Aspercreme works fantastic for me for two herniated discs that shoot pain down my leg. The doctor was amazed as I do not ask for pain medication. The aspercreme with lidocaine is non-greasy and washes right off”

“Severe neck and spinal pain (stenosis). My partner massages this into my neck and spine using pressure. This is very comforting. It does not replace pain medication but does help. He has large hands and rubs it in completely; I recommend giving this a try.”

“I suffer from lower back pain, locking up of my back, and sharp pains down my legs. Aspercreme has helped me through some tough times. I supplement use of this item with Aleve as little as possible. If I can go every 3 or 4 days on just one dose I feel that I am doing okay. I stay active this way. Thank you.”

“It always works for mild to severe pain but in varied degrees. I always use it - see if I need to take any pain pill like Ibuprofen, tramadol or other pain pill. Seldom need more. For chronic pain I use cream & pills both if have to stand or sit long periods. Love it. recommend to everyone. ”

“Bought it to use on my back to keep muscle from becoming inflamed due to pinched nerves. It didn't do a thing. I waited an hour and nothing. Not worth the 10 dollars I spent on it.”

“I've been using the max strength cream on my knee and lower back. I have sciatica and a bad knee. It worked at first though now it doesn't seem to even touch the pain.”
