Hot and Cold Therapy
Heat and ice are the two most common types of passive, non-invasive, and non-addictive therapies. Heat and cold can be used alternatively and are often used as a prelude to exercise therapy. Heat therapy generally helps relieve pain, relax tense muscles, and can increase range of motion by drawing blood into the target tissues. Increased blood flow delivers needed oxygen and nutrients, and removes cell wastes. Cold therapy causes circulation to slow which reduces inflammation, muscle spasm, and pain.
