Biofreeze is a topical analgesic that uses the cooling effects of menthol, a natural pain reliever, to provide temporary relief from many aches and pains, such as sore muscles and joints, sprains, strains and bruises. It penetrates quickly, offering relief through cold therapy. It’s especially effective for use in conjunction with hands-on health care such as chiropractic, massage and physical therapies, and podiatry, bringing you the best possible results in the office and between visits.
Cold therapy (or cryotherapy) is used to reduce swelling, nerve activity and pain using ice, cold packs and ice baths. Biofreeze is a topical cold therapy pain reliever that offers additional benefits.
Biofreeze vs. Ice
Biofreeze offers all the benefits of ice and more! It reduces arterial blood flow to the applied area while increasing circulation to the skin. But unlike ice, it won't cause skin irritation, numbness or stiffness, and it doesn't require inactivity during application. In fact, in a recent study, users found Biofreeze to be substantially more comfortable and convenient.
How it Works
When applied, the menthol in Biofreeze binds with temperature-sensitive receptors in the skin. Activating these receptors is thought to modulate pain signals through the body’s natural pain relieving systems.
