How does Orthogel ease 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 the effect. This phenomenum of fooling pain with menthol has been used for hundreds of years to help treat mild to moderate pain. Note from Barbara: "This really works! If I wake up with a sore neck or lower back pain in the morning, I apply Orthogel and the pain goes away for hours. Sometimes if I know the day will be stressful, I apply Orthogel before I get tense and the muscles start to ache.
