Pain Management Products
Boardman Medical Supply has products to help chronic pain sufferers get relief. These include Tens units, topical gels and lotions, and more.
Topical analgesics, like BioFreeze®, work through a ‘counter irritant’ mechanism. This means that the menthol in BioFreeze® creates a sensation that overrides pain signals to the brain. This process is known as ‘Gate Control Theory’, where nerve impulses from one stimulus block the nerves containing pain signals to the brain. Recent research also suggests that menthol may stimulate cold receptors in the skin that may help regulate pain as well.
