Biofreeze was first created in 1991 by a scientist that was searching for a way to help his grandmother manage her arthritis pain.
Today, Biofreeze is the #1 used and recommended topical pain reliever by chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists, and podiatrists.
Its active ingredient, the menthol, creates a sensation that overrides pain signals to the brain. This process is known as ‘Gate Control Theory’, where nerve impulses from one stimulus block the nerves containing pain signals to the brain.
Biofreeze’s unique, cooling formulation is also comforting to sore muscles and joint sprains, easing back shoulder and neck pain, reducing painful ankle, knee, hip, and elbow joints and helping to lessen the pain of muscular strain
