Heat Therapy for pain relief
A heating pad is a device that is used to warm up parts of the body in order to manage and alleviate pain. Heat therapy is used for the treatment of arthritis, minor muscle aches, pains and sprains. Localized application of heat dilates the blood vessels and increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, stimulates sensory receptors in order to decrease pain signals to the brain and facilitates stretching of soft tissue, all of which help to heal the damaged area. In the past mostly hot water bottles were used for this purpose, now heating pads are available in multiple sizes and shapes.
Unique adhesive patches offer heat therapy while on the go and without cumbersome cords. Easy-to-use, nonmedicated, air-activated heat pad that delivers up to 12 hours of soothing pain relief for sore muscles and joints.
