Even with fibro a good massage feels great. It helps work out some of the knots and spasms. If I am home alone or not, I grab my theracane at first twinge or tightness and work it out before the spasm gets me. That cane has saved me from taking flexeril all day. I only take it at night to keep the spasms from waking me up.
I use tiger balm for the muscles, been curious about the blue emu tho. Has any one tried it?
If you aren't familiar with the Theracane google it, it's a tool I wouldn't want to be without. If I travel, it travels with me . It's hanging on my back right now!
