I was a competitive cheerleader for about ten years. It involved lots of hardcore conditioning and gymnastics training. By age 17 I started feeling pain in my right shoulder so I started seeing doctors to try and figure out the problem. I would come home after a rough practice or just on an ordinary day and the pain was almost nauseating. Throughout the past ten years, I have been to physical therapy on and off. I have several MRI's/ CT-Scans/X-Rays, 3 cortisone shots and dye injections. I've seen up to ten different doctors and had 3 major surgeries. I had my last surgery in May of 2012 by one of the best Doctors in the U.S. and was fortunate enough to figure out the problem and get it fixed. It's been over 1 year since my surgery and my shoulder is ten times better than it ever was but I still feel muscle, bone, and joint pain in my shoulder, neck, and back. I was recently introduced to the Power Strips by Dr. Gilson and was skeptical at first because I had tried everything. Once I applied the strip to my shoulder and neck area I felt relief within minutes. Everything felt relaxed and I was able to take the focus off my shoulder for once. The great thing about them is that the ingredients are all natural herbs so there is no strong scent or cold, uncomfortable feeling and they last up to 2 days! As a former athlete, childcare worker, professional artists, and someone who enjoys exercise - I highly recommend them. If you are someone with constant bone/joint/muscle pain/arthritis/ inflammation then give these a try. You will not be disappointed!
