While there are many hot/cold packs that offer both options in one convenient product, the benefits of heat therapy and cold therapy are very distinct.

Cold Therapy

Apply a cold compress (or cold pack) to the site of injury for immediate pain relief through numbing, as well as to reduce bleeding and inflammation. Options include instant cold packs, which are activated by a simple squeeze or fold.

We also carry perineal cold packs, which are used after delivery to relieve pain and swelling.

Heat Therapy

Hot compresses or hot packs can provide excellent soothing and pain relief wherever you might need it, whether you suffer from chronic pain, or you have a recent injury or painful spasms. The heat brings blood to the area to promote healing and reduce stiffness, which is helpful when muscles get tight. Heat can also ease the aching of sore muscles after exercise.

Electric Heating Pad: To get the therapy best suited to your needs, use a heating pad with a selection of heat setting options. To activate, simply plug the pad in and select the ideal settings for your situation.

A moist heating pad can be especially soothing, much like a hot shower. Since water is a better heat transmitter than air, moist heating pads provide deeper muscle penetration to hasten the healing process and encourage relaxation by increasing the blood flow and oxygen levels to the area. Other benefits of moist heat therapy include longer-lasting pain relief, and that, unlike dry heat, it does not cause the skin to dry out over time.

Note:

  • Heat therapy should not be used in the first 48 hours following injury.
  • To avoid the risk of burns, use heating pad devices with caution, protecting sensitive skin from coming in direct contact with the heating pad.
