I’m a 54 year old man who was riding his Bike home from work, and I crashed hard into a curb and street. I was moving fast so I had some time to prepare (in the air) before hitting hard cement. I used my elbows to protect my fall, since the elbow took the impact of a 250 pound man, just below the elbow I had over a inch of swelling, at first I thought it was broken, I was in high levels of pain and my elbow not only a very large swelled in an area, but also what we call road rash, rocks pebbles in the skin with areas of the skin that the pavement took off. I applied PainBalm last night in a large dose before I went to bed and wrapped it up like they say. Surprising I slept very well and woke up well rested, with only very minor pains due to some movements.
The next morning over 75% of the swelling was gone, and the wounds looked great, and I had so little pain, (a little stinging when I put on another application this morning, which was more from the road rash, than the actual impact area, ) that I road my bike to work in the morning. No one at work even has an any idea I crashed, even though one of our clients died of a similar fall just last week.
It was fantastic to take such a hard fall and feel so little pain, I’m lucky :).
8 days after the fall, my pain was never intense, I applied PainBalm three times in the first days, today the pain is still their but very mild, it appears as if the Natural pain reliefs effectiveness is now starting to decline, but still very effective, as it has been over a week since my last application. It appears the decline in pain relief is occurring at about the same rate as my wound is healing, which to me is a nice touch, as I like my body to be free of outside body influences. I still have a deep bone bruise on my arm that is large enough, that a dollar bill, will not cover it. No real pain and such a large fall, and still large bruising and minor swelling over a week later, this worked well for me.
