Review by R G / (Posted on 10/11/2011)
My chiropractor ordered me to take this supplement. He indicated that because I was on the pain killers it will take it a while to work and to only see the difference I would have to take it for at least a month. Because of pain I had to go back on pain killers due to pain intensity. So it wasn't strong enough for me but still managed two weeks without pain killers and hope to get rid of them eventually, I continue with this supplement and hope git rid of all prescription meds in the future.
