Q:
Can You Use Biofreeze For Neuropathy?

A:

Can you use biofreeze for neuropathyPeople who are suffering from peripheral neuropathy in Houston are on a constant lookout to help to moderate their symptoms. There is an overwhelming amount of remedies, however, some of which work better than others. Biofreeze, a topical analgesic, is one such remedy that helps to provide temporary relief from the pain from peripheral neuropathy.

Biofreeze is a topical analgesic which comes in gell, roll-on, and spray form. It started as a commonly used sports' pain relief gel but has since become much more widely used. Biofreeze contains Ilex which is an herbal extract that aids in producing its therapeutic effect. Unlike other sports gels, Biofreeze only has a cold therapy, which helps to reduce inflammation.

Can you use biofreeze for neuropathyBiofreeze is effective for many people in helping the burning pain often associated with peripheral neuropathy. I typically recommend the spray form, likening it to a fire extinguisher to spray away the burning. Biofreeze can be used throughout the day and offers no adverse effects.

We always carry Biofreeze in our Houston podiatry offices. If you would like to pick some up to try, give us a call and come on in. No appointment is necessary!
