Biofreeze for Back Pain, Arthritis, Muscular Pain, and Knee Pain
Biofreeze is a range of cooling pain relief products that use cryotherapy, or cold therapy, to ease your aches and pains.
It can help to ease muscular pain all over the body, and is available in gel, spray, and roll on formulas that make soothing even the hardest to reach areas a breeze.
Biofreeze is ideal for those who suffer with pain caused by exercise, with a sample showing that 62% of Biofreeze users suffer with back pain from playing sports.
If you’re looking for cooling pain relief that won’t slow you down, Biofreeze is the perfect product to stash in your handbag, gym bag, or backpack to use on the go, giving you soothing pain relief no matter where life takes you.
Biofreeze can be used for lots of different joint and muscle pains, but each product is especially suited to ease different ailments:
Biofreeze Gel – This product is perfect for hands-on applications, so it’s ideal for leg pain, hand and wrist pain, and pain in other easy to reach areas
Biofreeze Spray – This product is great for harder to reach areas, like your back, as it can be sprayed onto the area from any angle. It’s also ideal for use on your feet and ankles, with easy application that will get right to the area of pain
Biofreeze Roll On – This product is perfect for use on your lower body, like your thighs and calves, as it gets to smaller areas of pain accurately and effectively. It’s also great for neck and shoulder pain, as the roller ball applicator also helps to massage the muscles as you apply your Biofreeze, stimulating pressure points and helping to further relieve your pain
How does Biofreeze work?
Biofreeze uses cryotherapy to ease pain using a method called Gate Control Theory.
When you’re in pain, the area sends signals through your nerves to your brain, telling it to react to the pain.
Biofreeze uses its cooling sensation to pass through the “gates” leading to your nervous system, blocking them and keeping the sensation of pain from coming through.
This means that you’ll feel a cooling sensation in the area instead of the pain, with clinical studies showing that those who use Biofreeze feel their pain symptoms reduce twice as much as those who don’t!

Should I use heat or cold therapy?
Heat and cold therapies are both useful but should be used to ease different types of pain.
Cold therapy is ideal for newly injured or swollen areas, such as strains, sprains, or sports injuries.
This is because cold therapy slows down the blood flow to the affected area, reducing swelling and soft tissue damage.
On the other hand, heat therapy is ideal for older injuries or chronic pain, like muscle and joint pain or stiffness.
This is because heat therapy encourages blood flow to the affected area, which provides the oxygen and nutrients your body needs to repair.
Is Biofreeze suitable for children?
Biofreeze can be used on children, with Biofreeze Gel and Roll-On being suitable for children older than 2, and Biofreeze Spray being suitable for children older than 12.
If you’re unsure whether Biofreeze is the right product to use for your child, speak to your doctor or pharmacist before use.
Can I use Biofreeze during pregnancy?
Biofreeze has not currently been tested to see if it is suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
If you want to use Biofreeze products at this time, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice first.
Can I use Biofreeze on burns?
Biofreeze is not designed to be used on burns.
If you have a minor burn, we would recommend following the first aid advice given by the NHS, beginning with cooling the burn in running cool or lukewarm water for around 20 minutes.
If you have a larger or more serious burn, make sure you seek immediate medical attention, including a visit to your local A&E department, if necessary.
Can I use Biofreeze if I have sensitive skin?
Biofreeze is suitable to use on all skin types, but if you’re worried about how your skin will react to these products, we’d recommend testing it on a small area of skin before use.
This will help you to see whether your skin will react, and reduce the chance of more widespread irritation.
