I began using Willowbalm about 5 months ago because of tendonitis in my left wrist. This happens to be the side I carry my infant daughter on, and the hand she rests her head on when I lay her in her crib. I was visiting my family for Christmas when I aggravated it even more. I could barely lay her down in her crib because of the pain the weight of her body would send radiating up my arm! My dad gave me some of his Willowbalm, , and it helped tremendously. I now have my own Willowbalm for when this tendonitis flares up. I also gave it to my husband to use on his sore muscles, and it works like a charm!
