I received a Wahl Massager product for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.
Hubby has had issues with his knees for years. He had Osgood-Schlatter (pain, swelling and tenderness just below the knee) when he was a kid, which commonly affects pre-teen or teen boys going through growth spurts. I don’t think it helped much, either, that he was a seriously rough-and-tumble kid that spent a lot of time racing bikes and seeing how high he could fly off jumps.
But he is not alone in having muscle or joint pain. In fact according to research conducted by Harris on behalf of Wahl, 85% of Americans are experiencing routine aches and pains. The number one area complained about is the back, followed by neck and shoulders, and then joints.
I know I fall into a couple of those categories, myself. I remember teasing my friend Em who complained about back pain after the birth of her children, but now after having given birth, myself, I’m not teasing any more. My back often aches when I get up in the morning and doesn’t feel too hot after spending the day bent over at her level to talk and play, either.
