Traditional thinking is that the pain-relieving mechanism of action of menthol – the active ingredient in Biofreeze Pain Reliever – results from a counter-irritant effect. Simply put, a counter-irritant has an effect of overriding noxious pain signals traveling to the brain through a process modulated between pain-transmitting and non-pain transmitting neurons. This process known as “gate control” or “gating,” was first described by Melzak and Wall.
