Biofreeze provides long lasting, fast acting cold therapy pain relief for sore muscles, back aches, sore joints and arthritis.
SAFER PAIN RELIEF
Applying Biofreeze directly to the skin provides targeted relief without the risks that come with an oral pain killer.
PROVEN TO WORK
Biofreeze is scientifically proven to reduce pain. It is also less likely that users will experience stiffness, skin irritation and numbness that can often occur with the application of ice.
POWERED BY COLD
Biofreeze works by stimulating cold receptors in the skin through evaporation. This creates a cooling sensation which helps to override pain signals.
Arthritis Action advocates the self-management approach, empowering people with arthritis to manage their condition, and reducing the need for medical intervention. We are the only UK charity giving hands-on help to combat the pain of arthritis through our Arthritis Action local community groups, self-management educational events, offering access to evidence-based therapies and free one-to-one consultations with our Registered Dietitian.
Institute of Osteopathy
The Institute of Osteopathy is the not-for-profit professional body representing osteopaths, and is dedicated to uniting, supporting, promoting and developing the profession of osteopathy for the improvement of public health.
Osteopathic practice is a safe and effective form of manual therapy, dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of health problems using education, exercises and hands-on treatment.
National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS)
The National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society is the UK 's only patient-led organisation focussing specifically on rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA).
