Adults and children 12 years of age or older: Apply thin layers of creme on and around the sore or painful area, no more than 3 to 4 times daily.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“I have a lot of tension and pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back. I get flare ups and knots in my back that make everyday function painful. When I have a flare up, I apply Thera-Gesic on my upper back and shoulders before I go to bed. By morning the tension has released, allowing me to function more comfortably.”
