I just think everyone should have access to it.

interestingly, i have that spot too. it was my first spot even before the rest of my body became involved. a few things (PT, ultrasound, traction) have given it temporary relief. the KIP gel (ketoprofen/ibuprofen/piroxicam) helps too. i've found some good relief with topical stuff lately, like the KIP gel or flector patches, thus soon as its legal in NY state, i'm asking for that salve, it sounds awesome! so glad you've told us about it!
