Biofreeze Cryospray topical analgesic can be used as an effective adjunct to the Kinesio Taping Method. As stated in the Kinesio materials the primary treatment effect from Kinesio Taping is achieved through stimulation of the proprioception receptors and circulatory system involvement effectively stimulating lymph drainage and removing exudate through the capillary and venous flow.
Biofreeze® topical analgesic reduces pain through “cryotherapy,” or cold application. It has been well-established that cold reduces the sensation of pain and reduces inflammation. (For a comprehensive text on cryotherapy, see Knight). “Cryokinetics” is a technique of using cold application to reduce pain during exercise. This helps facilitate earlier exercise interventions for healing tissue. Cooling and re-warming tissue with movement stimulates reperfusion of healing tissue.
