Biofreeze Decreases Pain Nearly Twice as Much as Ice
Clinically proven cryotherapy made convenient. It has long been established that cold therapy, or “cryotherapy”, decreases pain and reduces inflammation. Clinical studies have shown that Biofreeze decreases pain nearly twice as much as ice. It is also less likely to cause stiffness, decreased range of motion, and temporary pain and numbness that can often occur in the application of ice.
How Does Biofreeze Pain Relief Work?
Nerve cells regulate 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 and the body reacts to the stimuli in the form of pain.
But cold sensations, like those produced by Biofreeze, can be used to override pain signals through what is described as Gate Control Theory. This theory states that when bodily tissues are damaged, pain signals cannot automatically reach the brain. Instead, they have to pass through 'gates'. Biofreeze blocks pain signals from passing these 'gates' leading to the central nervous system. The user instead feels a cooling sensation.
