Methyl salicylate relieves musculoskeletal pain in the muscles, joints, and tendons by inducing irritation and reddening of the skin due to dilated capillaries and increased blood flow. It is pharmacologically similar to aspirin and other NSAIDs. 

Pharmaceutical drugs like Methyl Salicylate are considered to be quite useful in treating musculoskeletal pain as the irritation of the sensory nerve endings is thought to alter or offset pain in the underlying muscle or joints that are served by the same nerves. This is supposed to cover up the underlying musculoskeletal pain and discomfort. 

When applied topically, this magical drug is supposed to sink deep in the skin and underlying tissues where it reversibly inhibits cyclooxygenase enzyme and locally and peripherally prevents the production of inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandin and thromboxane A2.
