Biofreeze and Medistik products provide temporary relief from minor aches and pains of sore muscles and joints associated with backaches, arthritis, bruises, as well as strains and sprains. These products help break pain cycles associated with these conditions, by relieving pain through a method known as gate control. In the gating process, menthol acts to stimulate specific sensory receptors in the skin, thereby blocking other receptors from sending pain signals to the brain.
These products may be used up to four times a day – both before exercise or therapy (to relieve painful movement), and afterwards (to soothe muscle or joint soreness). In some cases, Biofreeze/ Medistik products may even be used during exercises or therapy.
The OrthoCerv pillow comes in a variety of sizes to suit individual preferences. Many patients experience an improved quality of sleep with the right pillow as it supports the spine in a posture that reduces joint and muscles stresses and fatigue.
Maintain a healthy posture while sitting with the help of our back supports.
