What is Medistik® Professional Pain Relief?
Medistik Professional is known as the strongest topical pain relief application you can purchase over the counter in Canada. Medistik is an anti-inflammatory, vasodilator and counter-irritant. It is a type of analgesic called a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
How does Medistik work?
The active ingredients temporarily soothe and reduce pain, inflammation and sore muscles caused by injury, stress, sports, arthritic and rheumatic conditions. Use Medistik before activities that are known to cause pain or inflammation. For example, consistent pain from athletic training, performances and exercise can all be mitigated or prevented.
Alternative to Oral Medication for Pain Relief
Medistik does not cause systemic side effects associated with oral or injected NSAIDs because it is a site-specific topical treatment. It is available in solid, liquid and gel dosages, and it is applied directly to the skin and over affected muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. Medistik is the strongest over the counter topical analgesic available in Canada.
When to use Medistik
Medistik Professional Pain Relief is flexible because it can be integrated into clinical approaches used to treat the following conditions:
- Acute pain
- Chronic pain
- Treatment pain
Use it to treat pain and inflammation related to stress, strains and cramps. In addition, treat chronic pain and inflammation with the use of Medistik in-between clinical treatments. Patient self-management of pain between appointments is extremely important during the treatment of chronic pain. Medistik is the perfect product to recommend to clients suffering from chronic pain. Moreover, it can be used to reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort associated with clinical treatments such as:
- Joint Mobilization
- Active Release
- Spinal Manipulation
Apply prior to treatment or after treatment. In addition, Medistik can be easily integrated with clinical massages, aromatherapy and acupressure.
Benefits of Medistik
Medistik helps to speed up the rehabilitation of acute injuries. Additionally, Medistick helps increase range of motion. Patients progress faster when treated in conjunction with acute pain management. This allows patients to “work through” their individual pain barriers quickly.
Medistik penetrates underlying structures and may, therefore, have synergistic effects with laser and ultrasound treatments. For example, Medistik in combination with laser or ultrasound treatments can help the inhibition of enzymes responsible for inflammation and pain symptoms.
Moreover, it is important to address the psycho-social needs of patients. Improved outcomes of chronic pain are more likely when psycho-social needs are met. For example, offering a solution for symptomatic pain can help address a key stress trigger for the client. Simple solutions for patient needs can dramatically improve a patient’s emotions, comfort with the clinician, adherence to treatment recommendations, rates of return and overall satisfaction.
