Hot & Cold Therapy will provide relief from conditions ranging from arthritis to a sore lower back. It will help your patients get back to their favourite activities in no time, and enjoying their normal activities. This is so whether these activities include a spell of weekend gardening or a game of basketball with friends. Your patients will also be able to enjoy a good night’s sleep with less disturbance from pain.
You will notice that the selection of hot & cold therapy products can be divided into two categories. It comprises both heat therapy and cold therapy products. Cold therapy products are best used in the immediate aftermath of an acute injury such as a muscle strain or ligament tear. They will cause the blood vessels to contract, thus reducing circulation and, with it, the pain and discomfort of the injury.
Our heat therapy products work by promoting blood circulation and facilitating muscle relaxation. In addition to improved blood circulation, they will promote the removal of lactic acid from injured or sore areas. This will help to reduce pain and discomfort.
In addition to traditional heat therapy products, you will find that our selection of hot & cold therapy products includes moist heat therapy products. These products provide all the benefits of traditional heat therapy and some more besides. For example, moist heat penetrates deeper into your tissues. It provides greater pain relief that lasts for longer.
Finally, the hot & cold therapy section also includes accessories that enhance the effectiveness of hot & cold compresses. These include shrink wrapping to hold the compress against your skin so that you do not have to do this yourself.
