Who does Biofreeze pain reliever help?
Biofreeze was first introduced to the world by a medical professional who was searching for a way to help his grandmother manage her arthritis pain. The formula he created consisted of a synergistic blend of ingredients such as menthol, isopropyl alcohol and ilex paraguariensis. The resulting formula offered quick, effective pain relief without the use of prescription drugs. Today, Biofreeze is providing relief to countless arthritis sufferers. But the pain reliever’s cooling formulation is also comforting to sore muscles and muscle sprains; easing back, shoulder and neck pain; reducing painful ankle, knee, hip and elbow joints and helping to lessen the effects of muscular strains.

How Biofreeze pain reliever works?
Biofreeze produces pain relief through the use of a process called cryotherapy. Also known as cold therapy, cryotherapy is the application of cold to decrease inflammation and relieve pain. The related term cryokinetics refers to the pairing of pain-relieving cryotherapy with exercise. This cooling and re-warming of tissue stimulates the return of blood flow to affected areas. The most popular form of cryotherapy is the use of ice. But when applied to sore muscles, ice can cause such negative side effects as stiffness, decreased range of motion, decreased motor performance and skin irritation. Biofreeze pain relief produces the same sensation of cold that accompanies icing. But unlike ice, Biofreeze allows activity during treatment. Biofreeze pain reliever can work around the injured area to reduce skin temperature, reduce blood flow, lessen inflammation and allow the body to repair itself more quickly - producing many of the benefits of ice without the hassle.
Roller application allows effective delivery of Biofreeze gel to smaller muscles and joints throughout the body. The massaging action of the roller ball can be used to stimulate trigger points in the affected area.
Biofreeze cryospray permits easy, effective application without direct body contact, helping patients at home gain access to hard-to-reach body areas such as the back.
