Hot and Cold Therapy

Hot and Cold Therapy

01 May 2015

Many minor injuries recommend the use of Hot and Cold treatments to aid recovery.  

Hot and Cold Therapy is a treatment you can use at home or whilst you are travelling to help reduce swelling and improve healing of damaged tissues.  

How does it work...?  

By applying cold it reduces inflammation and causes a contraction of the blood vessels and tissues.  By applying heat it allows the expansion of the blood vessels and tissues.  By combining the two it creates a pumping mechanism allowing excess fluid and waste products from the swelling to be removed with fresh blood containing healing nutrients flowing through into the area.

Not only do we supply Re-usable Cold/Hot packs to aid in the treatments you can also get a support that provides hands free application of the pack.  Perfect for injuries to the Knee or Elbow.
