ACUSTOP For Pain Relief

Ever since I fell down a couple of months ago, I have been getting backache on and off.   That is why old people's myth is true... "Once you fall down and never take precautions, you will get backache every now and then."  I used to shrug it off ....

Now look at me... I cannot carry heavy stuff already... I feel my back is very sprained when I do that... I cannot even sit too long in one position... when I get up, my back is so stiff!  Alright, I do not want to be a spring chicken but at least allow me to walk like a normal fat chicken!  :)

When I did my X-Ray previously, the specialist said my muscle is injured on my right side... since then, it has been healed.. no more pain.. but nowadays the pain is on the left side.... the pain has now moved over... and I have to use these again as recommended by the doc....
So far, I have used a number of plasters and this one is most "relieving"....
It cost RM10.50 for 6 pieces.... not cheap... 
I use two pieces per day for the past few days.... 
Quite big compared to others....
One piece for the day... and one at night...
Among the three diagrams here, I am one of the above.... 
aiyoyoo....

  1. Aww, sweet Claire. Back pain is so bad, it affects your whole body. And you are still so young to have this.

  2. P.S. When you are home, have you tried a heating pad? I recline on the couch with my laptop and put a heating pad behind me...when I lean back it feels good on my back.

  3. Hello Claire,

    Hope you feel better soon. My household uses Tokohun - is it the same kind of thing as Acustop?

  5. The pain can 'move over' to the other side ga? I don't use these patches but sometimes if I 'fan meh keng' (direct translation: sleep until neck twisted), I let it heal by itself or I sapu yuyi oil (meant for babies), silly but at least there's something, hehe..

  6. Have to watch your diet! Avoid "cooling" stuff. I do hope I don't need to use these one day - I'm allergic to plaster...and peeling off, the skin would come off with it. Ouch!!!!

  7. Irritating to have the pain on & off. Have to take great precautions to avoid sufferings. I like your statement..."no more spring chicken but at least a normal fat chicken". Take care & God Bless.

  9. I fell down from the rocks into the sea while fishing in Penang during my 20s. Now I suffer from migraine easily as my back has misaligned slightly.
    After so many years of massage, it was only temporary help until I accidentally found a machine at the gym that exercises solely on my back. I am now fit with a strong back like a horse again. Wanna know more??
