MediStik by Natureteq: The Most Effective Analgesic Available without a Prescription. MediStik provides rapid, natural relief for stiff and sore muscles, strains and sprains, backaches, shoulder and neck pains, lumbago, tendinitis, and arthritic and rheumatic pain. It is used by three main groups of people: high-performance athletes; people with chronic degenerative diseases such as arthritis; and those suffering from general or non-specific aches and pains.
Your choice of three types: Original Stick, Spray, or Roll-On (see additional information below).
Three MediStik types are now available:
The original DUAL (Hot & Cold) action Extra-Strength Analgesic Stick for Deep Penetrating Pain Relief and Inflammation, which first cools the affected area to relieve the pain, and warms it to provide relaxation. It rapidly controls acute and chronic pain and quickly moves patients into early and active involvement in their treatment regimes.
A pump-action Analgesic Spray, which is also for both chronic and acute pain. It uses less of the two main medicinal ingredients, but adds other muscle and joint pain relieving ingredients like MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), for fast action.
Roll-On version designed to concentrate on Acute Pain, which substitutes camphor for the main anti-inflammatory, and uses those additional joint pain relieving ingredients and also adds certain vitamins to work with the nervous system.
On Natureteq's original Dual Hot + Cold Medis+ik:
Backache, arthritis, muscle and joint pain. Mess-free. Does not stain. Colour-free. Paraben-free.
MediStik is a dual warming and cooling semi-solid balm with a high concentration of active ingredients in a retractable stick applicator for easy application during strenuous physical and sports activities. Medistik immediately cools the affected area to help relieve pain, and heats to soothe and relax. The active ingredients work to deeply penetrate the affected area and reduce inflammation.
Thanks to its unique ingredients, Medistik Dual Stick heats or cools according to the temperature of your body. Menthol provides the cooling effect and the penetrating, circulation-promoting heat of methyl salicylate helps to relieve your strained muscles, joints, and tendons.
Fast and reliable effectiveness - the active ingredients penetrate deeply, promoting blood-flow at the affected area and surrounding tissue, aiding in detoxification and restoration of function of the affected area.
MediStik Dual Stick is a perfect, fast solution for acute issues. Within minutes, Medistik helps to relax muscle spasms. It can help alleviate and relieve pain during sports or other strenuous physical activities.
Localized application does not put stress on your digestive system like oral medications.
Medistik is used by the Canadian Armed Forces Health Services to manage injury and pain in clinical rehabilitation and sport therapy. Frequently used by clinicians, Medistik is also the official topical pain relief product of the Toronto Argonauts football team.
"In my position, I play tough and get banged up pretty hard. I use Medistik before games to warm up, keep loose and stay fluid. After every practice and game I use it to get rid of pain and to recover faster from injuries. I've tried many other products but nothing even comes close to how effective and convenient Medistik is. I really like it because it really works."
-- Michael Fletcher, Linebacker: Toronto Argonauts
"As an elite marathon runner I run 90 to 100 miles per week. It is very hard on my leg muscles and I get sore and tight hamstrings. I use Medistik to alleviate my sore muscles and because I believe it helps me train at a higher level. I also like that it is a rub on stick and I don't get it on my hands."
-- Charles Bedley, Winner: 2007 Toronto Marathon
