The following is a quick guide to help you use both ice and heat safely and effectively.
Heat can provide temporary relief of stiffness, relax muscles, and stimulate circulation. Heat increases tissue temperature and blood flow by dilating blood vessels, drawing extra nutrients into the area to assist in the recovery and healing process. Heat therapy is most commonly applied with a moist hot pack, but can also be applied with whirlpools or paraffin baths.
