Difference Between Hot & Cold Therapies
As a general rule, cold therapies are good to use for acute injuries or pain such as sprained ankles, pulled muscles and inflammation. The cold helps numb sore tissues, acting as a natural anesthetic and temporarily providing relief for your pain. Heat can help soothe sore muscles and stiff joints and helps with muscle stiffness. Both hot and cold therapies, along with over-the-counter medications, can do a world of good for helping you manage your pain without the use of dangerous, prescription pain medications.
Many Hot & Cold Therapy Products Available
At Total Diabetes Supply, we offer a wide variety of hot & cold therapy products that meet many different needs for pain relief. Here you can purchase affordable solutions to help you feel in tip-top shape in no time at all. Hot and cold therapies, along with physical therapy, can also help manage your long-term pain. Care is needed in both therapies, however, to not burn the skin: never use hot therapies that are too hot. Additionally, a barrier should be used between a cold therapy product and the skin as to not "burn" the skin with the cold compress.
