I have tried many different topicals for back pain:
Lidocaine patches
voltarin gel
ketamine topical
ketamine plus flexeril topical
ketamine plus Ibupropin topical

of these volarin gel helps short term and a little
ketamine plus flexeril helps or ketamine alone helped a little more, but it does go somewhat systemic and gave me a few side effects such as a feeling of disaccociation or being a bit outside yourself (not very strong but there), toes started tingling, the flexeril gave me palpitations even as a cream and somewhat sleepy. Lidocaine didn't work at all for me
hope this helps
