DEEP FREEZE | How Deep Freeze helps reduce pain and inflammation

Pain scenarios are plentiful – from spraining your ankle coming down the steps through to pain flaring up on that long-awaited run or the needless suffering from joint pain and inflammation when you just need a ‘quick fix’ on the days when it feels unbearable.

To know how to treat pain and inflammation, let us first have a quick look at what pain and inflammation is.

Pain is that uncomfortable feeling you get that tells you something might be wrong. It can range from light through to deep pain and can manifest as throbbing, stabbing, a dull ache or even stinging. Muscular pain is most often felt when moving and joint pain when we are at rest.

When injury occurs and we experience pain, inflammation is the body’s way of compromising for the injury or infection. Inflammation is then the localised physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot and often painful. Up to a point – inflammation is good but, thereafter, it needs to be controlled. 

The use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is often recommended, some of the more common ones being Myprodol and Cataflam. However, this is not always feasible. It is therefore necessary to have another option other than oral medication with topical cream proving very popular and effective.

Deep Freeze is a trusted, well-known cold gel that has proven very effective in the treatment of pain and inflammation.  What makes it so popular is that it is so easy to use and can be applied directly to the area where pain and inflammation is experienced – be it one’s muscles or joints

So, exactly how does Deep Freeze Cold Gel help with pain and inflammation?

Deep Freeze Cold Gel has ingredients that bring cooling to the hot and inflamed area, helping to numb the pain and bring relief.  Once it has penetrated the skin, it causes constriction of the blood vessels that helps to remove the fluid causing the swelling. This leads to a decrease in the swelling. Less swelling means less pressure on the nerve endings present at the sight of injury and therefore less pain and discomfort.  As the swelling and pain decreases, so too will the redness associated with the inflammation due to less blood flow to the area.

Deep Freeze Cold Gel is available at most Clicks, Dis-Chem, Pick ‘n Pay, Shoprite, Checkers, Spar and selected pharmacies. It can also be purchased online. Available in different tube sizes, simply squeeze a little and gently massage the gel into the skin at the affected area. Circular motions are the most effective way of massaging the gel and, after a few seconds, you will start to feel its cold effect. 

We recommend you always keep Deep Freeze Cold Gel handy for an easy, effective and non-oral treatment of pain and inflammation.
