What Is the Point of Heat Therapy?

Heat therapy is a pain management solution designed increase bloodflow in a focused area and improve the mobility and flexibility of the designated area without resorting to medication. When you improve circulation and blood flow in the body it can also lead to reduced discomfort by relaxing the muscle.

Use heat when you have muscle tension or stiffness. Heat causes the body to relax, and causes blood vessels to expand, bringing more cells to the affected area, aiding in the healing process. Heat will cause irritation to wounds and bruises, so avoid placing heat packs on those.
