I use [easyazon-link asin=”B0041CZJWW”]BioFreeze[/easyazon-link] gel every day with my patients. It can be very effective in providing localized relief from shoulder pain.
BioFreeze pain relieving gel is made by Performance Health and it is one of the best gels on the market for treating shoulder aches and pains, but do check first with your doctor before use to ensure that it is suitable for your condition.
What is BioFreeze gel?
[easyazon-link asin=”B002J9HBXE”]BioFreeze[/easyazon-link] penetrates deep in to the skin and works with muscles to relieve pain. BioFreeze gel is green in colour and has a pleasant menthol aroma. It is cold when it is squeezed out of the tube, but it is quickly absorbed into the skin and provides a warm sensation and provides pain relief.
[easyazon-link asin=”B002J9HBX4″]BioFreeze[/easyazon-link] gels do not stain like many other similar products. BioFreeze is non-greasy, easy to apply and works fast.
How to use BioFreeze gel
The gel should be applied very sparingly on to the affected area at first and then increase coverage if required.
Applying too much at first can cause discomfort.
How does Biofreeze gel work?
BioFreeze gel provides relief to patients by increasing the blood flow and warming up the region. For better absorption of BioFreeze gel should be massaged well into the affected areas.
Biofreeze gel makes use of a technique called cryotherapy. Cryotheraphy is a technique that creates a cooling sensation that is transmitted through the nerve endings to the brain.
Biofreeze gel can be difficult to find at the local drug store but is available online from Amazon.
Advantages of BioFreeze gel include:
• Effective pain relief
• Fast acting
BioFreeze is available as a gel in a variety of sizes ranging from a 3 0z tube. BioFreeze is also available as a roll-on and as a spray
Other uses of BioFreeze gel
BioFreeze gel can also be used on other parts of the body, including treating pain in the hips, knees, elbows and back. It can also be used to combat the arthritis pain.
