I've seen physical therapists spray Orthogel after applying Kinesio Tape; they literally spray it right over the taped area.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) August 01, 2014
Orthogel is a topical analgesic, which means it is used for the fast temporary relief of pain. Orthogel is greaseless, stainless, and has no lingering odor. Orthogel also contains the herb Ilex, which is extracted from the South American holly shrub and has been used by the Paraguay Indians to enhance the effects of their medicines for centuries. Other high quality ingredients include: Menthol, Camphor, Glucosamine, Boswellia Serratta, Curcuminoids, OptiMSM, Aloe and Vitamin E, all of which aid in reducing aches and pain. Orthogel is a non-steroidal product known as a counter irritant. The Menthol and Camphor work together to stimulate nerve endings on the skin to cause a sensation of cold. Ilex enhances this effect. This phenomenon of "fooling" pain receptors with menthol has been used for hundreds of years to help treat mild to moderate pain.
Anthony Engel, Orthoco's president, says "Orthogel is appropriate to use for muscle pain, joint strains and sprains, neck pain, sore muscles, arthritis pain, back pain and even sore feet." It can be used before or after intense activities like biking, running, or kayaking to name a few. Engel adds, "I've seen physical therapists spray Orthogel after applying Kinesio Tape; they literally spray it right over the taped area."
Orthogel is available in the following forms and sizes:
- 4 ounce tube
- 3 ounce roll-on
- 16 ounce or 32 ounce pump bottle
- 4 ounce spray
- 1 gallon pump bottle for rehab clinics
Orthogel products can be purchased on Orthoco’s website: http://www.orthoco.com/Orthogel_advanced_pain_relief_s/5.htm.
Orthogel works in just minutes and can continue to work up to several hours after application to the skin. It is suggested that the Orthogel be rubbed deeply into the skin for best results and to use only on unbroken skin. Orthoco warns to avoid getting the product in the eyes, nose, or mouth. If it does get on these areas, rinse it off right away with water. Washing hands with soap and water before and after using the product is suggested as well.
