Customer Testimonial

“Last year, a bad fall from the stairs left me with a nagging pain in the lower-back. Though I had recovered from it, the pain would resurface occasionally. Making it difficult for me to sleep. Then a friend suggested Diclowin Plus. I took it and the pain was gone in no time. It's really good. Now, you'll always find the green strip tablet on my bedside table.”
