I broke my foot (I'm a professional dancer so this is not good) and I was having so much trouble with swelling, my foot looked like Baymax! Ice, medication, and elevation were not working so I bought this even though I didn't think it was going to do anything. I used this in a lukewarm foot soak and the swelling VISIBLY improved. It is helping to relax my muscles too. I really can't believe this worked. I HIGHLY recommend! It also smells amazing...bonus!
