I have had this periodically over the last couple of years.
I'm not a happy camper with this - starting to think of limited range of movement as I age and seriously that is not something I am happy with.
One of the ways I am dealing with the immediate pain is with this Muscle rub I created earlier in the year. I have some other long term strategies for relief/cure (if possible)
This is only for adults as it has a few ingredients that really are not for young children: namely the Black Pepper, and Wintergreen (but these are the best for me ingredients).
I would leave those out for the use on children
My Muscle Rub Recipe-
A generous squeeze of Oil of Emu into a small container
Then I add my home made Infused Oil’s:
13 drops of Comfrey
6 drops of Calendula
4 Drops of Chamomile
Next Essential oils:
18 drops of Wintergreen
6 drops of Lavender
5 drops of Arnica
3 drops of Eucalyptus
3 drops of Black Pepper
Mix together and rub on affected area.I use as often as needed which generally is twice a day
Blessings to you and your homes,
