So, turns out heat therapy might be better than ice for pains and strains.
It's pretty cool (or should I say warm?).
When you use heat, it improves blood circulation, helping the injured tissues heal faster.
Unlike ice, heat relaxes muscles and reduces stiffness.
It's like a natural healer!
Heat therapy also reduces inflammation by increasing blood flow and getting rid of inflammatory substances.
Plus, it improves flexibility and range of motion, making you more comfortable.
And here's the best part: it's not just good for the body, but for the mind too.
The warmth is so relaxing and helps relieve stress. It's like a mini spa treatment for your pain.
So, next time you're dealing with aches and pains, give heat therapy a try.
It's convenient, versatile, and provides faster relief.
Your body will thank you!
PS here's a link to the ones I bought specifically to heat my knees.
I actually keep them on all day so my joints and tendons don't get stiff.
Only takes 1 min in the microwave to heat and lasts 15-20 mins.
