James Waslaski explains how blocking the pain spasm cycle with CryoDerm and activating gluteal muscles and hamstrings can help with chronic lower back pain due to hypertonicity of back muscles.
CRYODERM’S® KEY INGREDIENTS
are clinically proven to dilate blood vessels, inhibit inflammation, platelet adhesion, and oxidative damage through the production of Nitric Oxide and cGMP.
Research has demonstrated that the ingredients in CryoDerm stimulate nitric oxide (NO) formation through activation of Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase (CaM kinase). Nitric oxide, in turn, binds to and activates guanylyl cyclase. This enzyme catalyzes the dephosphorylation of GTP to cyclic GMP (cGMP), which serves as a second messenger for signaling smooth muscle relaxation.
Research Shows That Key Ingredients In CryoDerm Also Act On Receptors In The Blood Vessels
CryoDerm constricts blood vessels when they are over-dilated
When your muscles or joints are inflamed, such as after trauma, exertion, or in arthritis, the blood vessels become leaky and let plasma, white blood cells, and cytokines-the so-called "inflammatory soup" out into the surrounding tissue. The tissue becomes red, warm, swollen, and painful. CryoDerm'S® proprietary formulation counteracts the vasodilatory effects of the inflammatory mediators making blood vessels contract. This reduces swelling, redness, inflammation, eliminates pain, discomfort and restores the tissue homeostasis.
CryoDerm dilates blood vessels when they are in spasm
When your muscles are in spasm, the blood vessels are constricted, reducing the blood flow to the area and depriving the tissue of the vital oxygen. In this scenario CryoDerm'S® proprietary formulation causes relaxation of blood vessels and a reduction in sympathetic nerve-mediated contraction. CryoDerm® helps restore the natural balance by dilating the blood vessels, thus improving microcirculation, tissue oxygen supply, removing the toxic by-products of metabolism, resolving interstitial acidosis and speeding up tissue healing.
A transient receptor potential channel that was previously believed to be found only in a subpopulation of sensory neurons, was recently identified in blood vessels. Isometric contraction studies on endothelium-denuded relaxed vessels found small contractions on application of CryoDerm'S® Key Ingredients. However, these ingredients caused relaxation of vessels precontracted with KCl (60 mM) or the α-adrenoceptor agonist phenylephrine (2 µM) and a reduction in sympathetic nerve-mediated contraction. Thus, these key CryoDerm® ingredients play multiple functional roles, likely to be in a tissue- and activation state-dependent manner, producing opposite effects, causing vasoconstriction or vasodilatation, depending on previous vasomotor tone.
CryoDerm® aids in regulating blood flow depending on the tissue state, restoring natural homeostasis.

The fast acting, menthol based formula of Biofreeze provides you powerful pain relief when directly applied to the skin. In fact, clinical studies have shown that those who use Biofreeze decrease their pain twice as much as those who don't.
Menthol stimulates cold receptors that create a cooling sensation on and under your skin, helping to relieve pain. Our formula has optimized the ideal menthol concentration for maximum effectiveness.
Contrary to popular belief, ice doesn't reduce swelling but it does reduce pain. Biofreeze induces the exact same response as ice, only faster. You're also less likely to experience stiffness, skin irritation, temporary pain and numbness, and the inactivity required during application as you would with ice.
Fast-acting cold therapy treatment gets you back to your best
Long-lasting menthol formula cools the pain for extended relief
Scientifically proven to be nearly twice as effective as ice
This new gel provides controlled cooling without freezing or irritation and has exceptional glide for point therapy. The cool therapy gel is good for acute conditions or injuries that have just occurred, whereas the original warm therapy gel is good for chronic conditions and basic aches and pains.

In 2003, the Journal of Rheumatology released a study on topical cream including camphor, glucosamine, and chondroitin as active ingredients: "Our results clearly show that this effectively targets osteoarthritic knee pain and provides immediate pain relief along with long term improvement of pain with continued use." Nearly all of the patients using the cream obtained immediate pain relief. Additionally, the results showed there was a greater mean sustained reduction in pain at both four weeks and eight weeks for the experiment group compared to the placebo group. A majority of the cream users experienced gradually and continually improving pain relief over the eight weeks. With continued use, one-third of the experiment group had their chronic osteoarthritis pain completely or nearly completely eliminated within eight weeks or less.
