Biofreeze - Effective relief from aches and pains
Biofreeze is a topical pain killing gel that provides long-lasting relief from a range of ailments, including arthritis, back pain, strained muscles, painful joints, sprains and sports-related injuries.
Biofreeze relieves pain using cryotherapy (cold therapy). Biofreeze dramatically cools the affected areas to work in two ways:
• Reduces the blood supply to the painful area
• Reduces the ability of the nerves to conduct pain stimuli
Its unique formula contains Ilex, a herb extracted from the holly shrub. Grown in South America it is traditionally used by the Paraguay Indians. Ilex helps the gel to powerfully penetrate the painful areas.
Fast acting – long-lasting
Biofreeze starts to work in 3 minutes and provides deep penetrating pain relief for up to 8 hours; meaning it only needs to be applied three or four times daily.
Biofreeze is greaseless, stainless and vanishing scent. And because the product works simply by cooling the affected areas it can be used in conjunction with any oral medication
Roller application of the gel affords a number of unique features that can enhance the effectiveness and convenience of this application process. The roller application allows the clinician or patient to apply the product without getting product on their hands. This can be most convenient for the older patient in applying product to hard to reach places or for someone in the workplace who must apply product during the workday. The roller application is also very beneficial in stimulating trigger points either through treatment in the office or with instruction to the patient on self-massage of these points.
Various studies in Acupuncture support the use of counter irritants like Biofreeze on specific acupuncture points as beneficial in decreasing muscle spasm and enhancing pain relief. The roller application is also a convenient and sanitary means to apply Biofreeze to a patient prior to ultrasound. To continue care the patient can take the roll on bottle home.
