NPain Management thru Cryotherapy
owadays, cryotherapy is among the most prevalent treatment options utilized in athletic training rooms across the
country; and rightfully so. Studies have shown that the use of cryotherapy during baseball games1 improved pitch speed, exertion, and recovery, while other studies have proven the use of cryotherapy after athletic performance can help reduce the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness2.
Although a good ol’ bag of ice may be a tried- and-true method, there are plenty of other options to choose from on the market today. However, not all the options provide the athletic trainer and the athletes they work with a quick, safe, and easy-to-use method of cryotherapy that can be easily implemented into their daily routines. A product that meets these requirements and more is Biofreeze® Professional, a topical analgesic that has been a staple in pain relief for over 25 years.
Using Biofreeze Professional instead of ice in the athletic training room can positively impact athletics in a number of ways:
1. Biofreeze Professional is incredibly simple to use.
• Whether you rub it, roll it or spray it on, Biofreeze Professional takes only seconds to apply and begin working.
2. Biofreeze Professional can be applied whenever and wherever.
• Because the product is exceedingly portable, it can be applied in the training room, on the field or on the bus. No freezer required.
3. Biofreeze Professional has been proven to be more effective, comfortable and longer lasting than ice.3
4. Biofreeze Professional is more practical than ice for both athletic trainers and athletes. • Using Biofreeze Professional instead of ice
saves time for athletic trainers, while athletes are freed from having to sit in the dining hall or classroom with soggy bags of ice strapped to their bodies.
At the end of the day, everyone wants a better and simpler way to get the job done. Using Biofreeze Professional instead of ice does just that by providing a trustworthy and successful method of cryotherapy and pain relief that everyone can be confident in using.
