Why does heat help with pain?
This process increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, helping to heal the damaged tissue. Heat stimulates the sensory receptors in the skin, which means that applying heat to the lower back will decrease transmissions of pain signals to the brain and partially relieve the discomfort.
Comment from a long serving customer "I can tell you this almost for sure and that is, as long as you guys continue making these best ever heat packs I will continue to order them. I am a paraplegic with a lot of nerve pain and spasms that can be unbearable but at least with your heat packs I get some relief. On top of that I have two forms of sleep apnea and must go on a servo ventilator at night so I’m going to try your new sleep set!! Thanks! It’s that old personal touch that you add like my dad had in his drug stores. I didn’t think it was possible but your fast personal replies are giving me reason to believe that the internet doesn’t have to be without the “older” fashioned “ personal approach. Keep up the good work!! Sincerely, M D. (London Ontario Canada)
How cold therapy Works to Relieve Pain
Cold therapy can help provide relief for back pain in a number of ways: Keep a Warm Buddy heat pack in your freezer for these applications: Cold therapy application slows the inflammation and swelling that occurs after injury. Most back pain is accompanied by some type of inflammation, and addressing the inflammation helps reduce the pain Cold therapy numbs sore tissues (providing pain relief similar to a local anesthetic) Cold therapy application slows the nerve impulses in the area, which interrupts the pain-spasm reaction between the nerves Cold therapy decreases tissue damage The massage adds the beneficial effects of gentle manipulation of the soft tissues Cold therapy is most effective if it is applied as soon as possible after the injury occurs, usually within 24 to 48 hours. The cold makes the veins in the tissues contract, reducing circulation. Once the cold is removed, the veins overcompensate and dilate and blood rushes into the area. The infusion of blood in the area brings with it the necessary nutrients to help the injured back muscles, ligaments and tendons to heal.
