Mountainside Medical Equipment Introduces Mountain Ice Pain Relief Gel to Reduce Opioid Use
MARCY, N.Y. - Mountainside Medical Equipment has just announce the availability of its brand new topical pain reliever, Mountain Ice. Mountain Ice is a clinically recommended, topical analgesic that combines the active ingredient of menthol with powerful natural plants and extracts to create a specially designed formula that reaches pain at its source. This unique, effective formulation is the next step in pain relief, and has been embraced by physical therapists, athletes, chiropractors and athletic trainers.
Pain management is at a crucial stage, with over 17 million Americans addicted to opioid pain relievers and medical organizations beginning to set limits on prescriptions for opioids. Studies show that anywhere from 21 to 29 percent of patients given opioids for chronic pain misuse them, and now more than ever alternative pain relief options are needed. Trials in nursing home settings have shown Mountain Ice has a 50 percent effectiveness rate in helping to transition chronic pain patients off opioid analgesics. Its unique blend of rich ingredients is formulated to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, improve circulation and promote better muscle and joint healing.
“When developing Mountain Ice, I had two very important objectives in mind. First, I wanted to help treat people with arthritis and joint pain and help them live a pain free life. Second I wanted to develop a product with only the best ingredients that would work well and not be addictive, like opioids. If the product wasn’t good, I couldn’t back it,” said Martin Zarnock Jr., co-owner of Mountainside Medical Equipment and Mountain Ice developer. “I truly feel deep in my heart that Mountain Ice changes lives for the better every day; and that’s a real accomplishment.”
Mountain Ice is a safe and effective pain relief alternative that requires no prescription. It is non-systemic, non-narcotic, and contains no NSAIDs or addictive substances. Mountain Ice utilizes cool and soothing menthol as well as natural plants and extracts for fast-acting, long-lasting pain relief. It is never tested on animals and it is produced in the United States.
