Q & A
Q: What is Cryotherapy?
A: Cryotherapy works by creating a cooling sensation that is transmitted through the nerve endings to the brain. It transmits at speeds faster than most pain sensations or warming sensations. Unlike icing an area, Biofreeze allows blood to continue to flow to the area so that it can be naturally repaired.
Q: Can I use a heating pad while also using Biofreeze?
A: No, you should never use a heating pad while using Biofreeze. Biofreeze works by causing a cooling effect, not heat.

You may not be able to tell how hot the heating pad is on the problem area, even possibly causing yourself to experience severe blistering.

Pet Warning – Contact your veterinarian immediately. Animals will not drink water on command. Animals have a highly developed sense of smell and the menthol, camphor and alcohol contact will warn them away from ingesting the product. It overwhelms their sense of smell and therefore, does not appear as food or something appetizing. Biofreeze should not hurt them, but it is always best to contact your veterinarian in any instance where Biofreeze has been ingested by your pet.

The formula he created consisted of the active ingredient menthol with a synergistic blend of inactive ingredients. The resulting formula offered quick, effective pain relief without the use of prescription drugs.
Today, Biofreeze products are providing relief to countless arthritis sufferers. But the pain reliever's unique, cooling formulation is also comforting to sore muscles and muscle sprains; easing back, shoulder and neck pain; reducing painful ankle, knee, hip and elbow joints and helping to lessen effects of muscular strains.
