Biofreeze Reviews from users:
From a trainer:
I’ve heard a lot about this product so I thought I’d give the roll-on bottle a try- and boy does it live up to its name!
Biofreeze is a form of cryotherapy, which basically means cold therapy. It contains a natural menthol, so I feel like its a pretty safe product to use. I’m guessing this product works by stimulating the large diameter nerves that carry the cool sensation- thereby blocking pain which is carried on small diameter nerves. Other forms of (cryo)therapy that use this principle include TENS units, spray and stretch, and plain old ice.
I consider useful Biofreeze Gel 3 Oz. ROLL-ON – 3 PACK- minor aches and pains that we all get now and then, although if you have a consistent problem, it would probably be good to get at the cause as Biofreeze mainly treats symptoms temporarily.
With a 2 year shelf-life and roll-on applicator, its just perfect for throwing in your gym bag and using as needed.
A co-worker recommended BIOFREEZE when he saw me limping into the office with a sore knee. He brought in his own tube for me to try and I was amazed at how fast it worked. The pain in my knee was 90% gone and I was even able to walk up and down the stairs without limping. Using BIOFREEZE, I was no longer reluctant to do my knee rehab exercises because they were not as painful and I’m sure this great product helped speed my recovery.
Easy to apply.
Very helpful for stiff neck, Fibromyalgia, arthritis, hot spots, pain, etc.
Best OTC Product for Chronic Pain
I suffer from Fibromyalgia and my physical therapist introduced me to this product last year. Once leaving physical therapy, I didn’t realize I could buy this for myself so I haven’t used it in over a year. I was excited to come across it on Amazon and had to buy it. I use it on my knees, shoulders, back, wrists, and elbows. This product fills in the gaps when the pain comes back between medication doses. I don’t know how I survived without it. My husband, who does not suffer from chronic pain, uses it for muscle strains and soreness and loves it too. The primary ingredient is Natural Menthol and while you can smell the menthol, it’s not overpowering or offensive like many other OTC products. I would HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone suffering from arthritis pain, fibromyalgia pain, and/or sore muscles. Between the price point at Amazon and the quality of the product, I will be purchasing several more bottles soon.
Great Pain Reliever
I’ve been using this product for years but never knew about the roll on. It’s so easy to use & works as well as ever. No more messy hands to wash!
