Pentosan is an IntraMuscular injection. It goes directly into the muscle. (Hindend, Neck, Chest) It requires a vet's prescription, like Adequan would...But you don't need a vet to give it as long as you know how to properly give IM shots.
Pentosan is very similar to Adequan, and many people think that its actually better due to its anti-inflammitory properties. People that havent had good success with Adequan, have seen wonderful results with the Pentosan. (Of course this could be vice-versa as well)
Plus, Pentosan is cheaper. Adequan averages $42 per injection. I pay $19 for Pentosan from my vets office.
As far as the Back On Track wraps...If your not able to keep them on for long periods of time, then I suppose the 30 minutes prior to riding would help more then nothing at all. Although I would try to keep them on for 45 minutes to 1 hour before riding. I might also put it back on after riding for a little while to ease any stiffness from the workout. But youll have to do a trial and error type of thing to see whats going to work best for your horse.
