Benefits of Biofreeze include pain reduction of sore muscles and the minimizing of discomfort caused by chronic conditions such as arthritis, explains Biofreeze. The company claims that applications also help in minimizing back, neck, shoulder and joint pains. Biofreeze contains menthol and penetrates the skin quickly, allowing quick, cooling relief.
Biofreeze works by decreasing blood flow when applied to the skin, which aids in reducing pain and inflammation, according to B Independent. Athletes often utilize biofreeze prior to and following workouts, to reduce pain. When used as a pre-treatment on muscles prone to spasm, Biofreeze encourages muscle relaxation. The topical solution is also helpful when used during massage therapy and ultrasound treatments.
