I had a total knee replacement early in April 2009 and started using Weleda Arnica Massage Oil on my leg right after the surgery. On my first post op visit to get my staples out, the nurse remarked that she had never seen skin so free of bruising or an scar so smooth. I have continued to use Arnica Oil several times a day including taking it to my physical therapy appointments. They used it as a massage oil prior to my therapy exercises.
Now, after close to six weeks post op, my scar is smooth, very supple, and fading nicely. I adore this stuff. I rave about it to my friends and family. It has no negatives. It smells great, absorbs qiuckly, and works to reduce pain and bruising.
Anyone who has ever had a total knee replacement, knows how awfully painful it is, and how hard it is to get back to normal function. Weleda Weleda Arnica Massage Oil really HELPS make it easier. I am ahead of my recovery schedule and I believe this oil has helped me get there.
Thank you very much for a quality product.
