Heat treatment is the use of using heat to relive aches and pains with heat towels
and hot packs.
Dilating the blood vessels, improving circulation and loosening the joints all help
promote natural healing.
Combined with massage, remedial massage, stretching and where appropriate cold treatment,
promotes the best possible conditions for healing.
NB - DO NOT USE HEAT IN THE FIRST FEW DAYS OF INJURY as this will -
- Increase the swelling
- Increase the inflammation
- Increase the pain
