Hot and cold compress therapy can be used to treat a wide variety of
muscle and joint related ailments, particularly those associated with
sporting injuries such as strains, sprains and spasms.
Cold compress is used to reduce pain and swelling of the tissue, thereby
reducing inflammation and lowering the recovery time by decreasing blood
flow to the area.
This is beneficial to the treatment process as once the swelling has
gone down hot and cold alternation can begin.
Heat therapy works to bring blood closer to the surface of the body,
thereby reducing the recovery time for an injury and relaxing muscles
which are in spasm.
Heat, such as the heat generated by a microwavable heating pad dilates
the blood vessels around the injury, thereby increasing the flow of
nutrients and oxygen to the area, working to reduce treatment times.
Once the initial swelling has reduced, alternating between the hot and
cold compress can work to reduce inflammation while simultaneously
relaxing muscles and reducing spasm.
