How does Biofreeze work?
Nerve cells control our perception of pain by carrying information from receptors found in the skin and throughout the body, to the spinal cord, before being sent to the brain for processing. The brain then interprets these signals causing us to feel pain.
Biofreeze produces a cold sensation that can be used to block pain signals through what is described as “Gate Control Theory”. This theory suggests that topical pain relief products prevent pain signals from passing these ‘gates’ leading to the brain. The user instead feels a cooling sensation which helps to relieve pain.
Biofreeze cold therapy is scientifically proven to reduce pain. It is also less likely to cause stiffness, skin irritation, and numbness that can often occur in the application of ice. The cold relief reduces blood flow to the affected area, easing swelling, bruising and inflammation.
