It always helps to have a decent heat pack at home, for moments when you might end up suffering from muscle soreness or perhaps if certain parts of your body were aching. Presently, heat assisted treatments are quite frequently employed by practitioners especially after one has sustained an injury so as to accelerate the body’s healing process.

Heating treatments is most beneficial after the inflammatory phase of an injury has passed. If you are suffering from inflammation then heat treatment should only be used once the inflammation or swelling calms down. Usually it takes around 3-5 days for inflammations to settle. It is imperative to note that using any sort of heating treatments, any earlier that the mentioned time period, whilst the inflammation is still present, will only exacerbate the swelling and consequently will prolong the period of recovery.

What heat treatment does is that it increases the blood flow to the region of application or the affected area. The greater the blood flow, the greater the amount of nutrients and oxygen provided to the injured tissue which as a results speeds up the healing process. Heat treatments in addition, help to lessen muscle spasm and tension and also reduce joint stiffness.
