Myo-Breathe for Lower Back Pain
Myo-Breathe pain reliever is the most frequently used and recommended topical pain reliever by healthcare professionals. It’s a natural treatment for back pain.
This topical pain reliever contains menthol, the active ingredient in peppermint. Menthol cools the skin and mimics an ice pack on your low back. The cold therapy of Myo-Breathe works by causing ligand molecules to attach themselves to your nerve’s cold receptors, which effectively helps to numb the area, interfering with pain signals traveling to the brain. Its menthol also induces vasodilation, which increases blood flow to the injury (a benefit over icing the area, as icing has the opposite effect), allowing cellular waste products to be swept away more efficiently and for healing oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to the cells.
Dr. Berman and Dr. Conner use Myo-Breathe because it acts immediately. This is because it is easily absorbed into the skin and they want you to be out of pain as soon as possible.
