Reviews

We picked up some reviews from people about the Versatis plaster:

  1. Helena. I consider the Versatis plaster a very good remedy, I myself suffer from radiculitis, which often worsens, especially during the cold season. Usually on such days I stayed at home, did not go to work and ate pills. But then one of the friends "in misfortune" advised me to this patch, I did not really hope for the effect, but the acquisition turned out to be one of the best in my life. This is not an exaggeration, those who often suffer from such pain will understand me. Well, this patch can be worn during the day, and the back stops hurting very quickly. After removing the patch effect lasts for several hours. The patch is large enough, enough for the back, no side effects have been observed, but I have been applying for a long time.
  2. Maria. My grandmother Versatis buys this plaster for some time (or rather, I buy it for her), she often has radiculitis exacerbations, and this plaster will very quickly relieve pain, the only thing that helps her, because but there is no problem with plaster.
  3. Ira I never heard of this patch until I went to the sea in the spring and had a cold knee. It hurt me to bend them, regardless of whether I was sitting or standing. About the management of the car, which my husband and I rented, during this period there could be no question, since at any moment I could become very ill from a sudden movement of my foot. After the first use I felt much better, but I continued to take the medicine, as the doctor prescribed a longer course.
