HOW TO USE MUSCLECARE
Dr. Chris, the founder of MuscleCare, created protocols to help anyone with the most common types of pain seen in the Centre for Fitness, Health and Performance. They will make it easy for you to get proven immediate pain relief by using the roll-on when you are in pain and after you are out of pain to manage the weaker tissues and help them heal.
MuscleCare is formulated to help your body heal faster when you follow this protocol and incorporate the roll-on into your daily routine. Over one million people have been enjoying the pain, inflammation and spasm relief benefits from MuscleCare since 2010.
This is your guide to using MuscleCare to target your painful areas and beat the pain! In addition, I encourage you to stretch for 15-30 minutes a day and walk no less than 30 minutes per day for optimal health.
This is set up into Mild Pain (less than a 5/10) and Moderate to Severe Pain (6-10/10) on the pain scale. 0 is no pain & 10 is the worst.
Acute means “new” pain usually less than 6 months in duration. Chronic means “old” pain usually there for more than 6 months.
