Sorry but I didn’t think about using a spray , I have difficulty using sprays due to arthritis in my hands . Trying to spray my lower back is very awkward for me . The spray I found very cold , I put it on my left arm which has a broken tendon and it was ages before it became warm again . I think it probably does help with pain but I haven’t used it much . I’m not too keen with the smell of it . I will use some more .
