Many patients ask us what they can do at home to maintain their level of comfort after leaving the office. Biofreeze is a great option for most patients. Biofreeze's main active ingredient, natural menthol, provides a cooling effect over the area of application. It is very easy to apply (we sell both a 360* spray bottle as well as a colorless gel) and the best part about it is that if you don't like it you can simply wash it off! Unlike medications you do not have to worry about overdosing with Biofreeze since it is applied topically and made of natural ingredients.
If you are someone who enjoys knowing how things works keep reading or watch a video on the Biofreeze website here. The process is explained by the Gate Control Theory of Pain.
If you or someone you know could benefit from the cooling effects of Biofreeze, stop by our office to learn more.
