Biofreeze is a natural based pain reliever that is applied topically to the skin; providing relief for sports injuries, arthritis pain, muscle and joint pain and back ache. Biofreeze does not leave your skin greasy, and is non-staining, and has a mild scent that quickly vanishes. The main components are menthol and camphor. The menthol gives the cooling sensation and helps relax muscles and reduce itchiness; while the camphor provides the analgesic (pain relieving) benefit.

Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes - they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole - and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
