Heat and ice are the two most common types of passive, non-invasive, and non-addictive therapies.
Heat therapy often works well for recurrent injuries or on-going pain. We use dry and moist heat therapies, depending on your condition. Moist heat tends to penetrate into the muscles and joints better and we maintain the heat at a constant temperature for even healing. Heat is the chosen therapy to help increase your range of motion and alleviate stiff joints. It helps to relax stiff muscles and tendons, which brings you more freedom of motion. In addition to its healing benefits, moist heat increases circulation to the injured area and helps make movement and stretching easier and less painful.
