Melt Away the Pain

Posted on: October 16th, 2012 by LAMedicalBlogger

Most days we wake up pain free and ready to go for the day. However, for some of us there are those days where we wake up and immediately can feel that our back, neck, shoulder, leg or other body part is nagging us with pain. This can be because we slept on that area of our body wrong, or from the previous day’s activities or from a chronic pain that some days is just there. But before you take some anti-inflammatories or other pain relieving medicine, try something a little more natural for your aches and pains: heat.

Are your muscles aching, causing you to slow down or be distracted. Try heat therapy!

Heat therapy, or thermotherapy, has a variety of uses, from decreasing the pain caused by stiff muscles and arthritis to providing relief for those muscle spasms and fibromyalgia. The higher tissue temperatures generated by heat therapy create vasodilation, the widening of the blood vessels, for better blood flow. This increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the affected muscles, helping relieve pain.

Heating pads like the Therma Moist Heating Pads offered by LA Medical are both efficient and convenient. These pads, effective at reducing pain caused by arthritis, back pain, sprains, strains and sports injuries, can be used anywhere for treatment. The outer flannel of the pad draws in the humidity in the air and retains it, and this moisture is released as the pad warms resulting in more effective moist heat therapy.

The Therma Moist Heating Pad can be used to loosen up those tight muscles from the previous day’s gardening, yardwork, basketball game or muscle soreness from a tough workout. If you or your loved ones are physically active, a heating pad from LA Medical is a good investment to keep you and yours moving and living pain free!
