I recently got in an accident and the seatbelt left my chest sore and more over my heart and I was wondering if anyone knew if it was safe to use the Tiger Balm patches over the heart area. I've used it before on my back and it helped a lot I'm just worried it could do damage if it's placed there.
Any info would be good.
Thanks

Yes I would think that would be fine. Of course read the box or packaging but in my expert medical opinion (EMT for ten plus years) it should be fine.
Seat belt injuries suck. Deep bruises. Saves your face from the windshield though.
Have you been to a doctor or er since your accident?

I of course always recommend you seek medical attention. Self diagnosis is never as good as a professional. That being said I do it all the time. :) if it was a minor accident as you are just sore should be ok. If pain continues go to the doctor or er.
