Relax and loosen sore, tired and stiff muscles with the Medicare Instant Hot Pack. This heat therapy pack provides form-fitting, flexible hot therapeutic relief for arthritis, muscle spasms, menstrual cramps and more.
Hot Therapy can also be used before or after exercise to improve mobility by loosening muscles and increasing joint elasticity. Heat packs are particularly popular among people who experience lower back pain. Sore, stiff muscles are best treated with hot therapy, because the heat helps to relax, soothe and loosen up the tired muscles. Hot therapy can also be used to increase the range of motion.
Do not use hot therapy on an injury that is already warm to the touch. When an injury is on-going and has lasted for around 48 hours or more, one of the most effective ways of treating the symptoms is through the application of heat. When you apply the hot pack to a painful area, the patient’s blood vessels are caused to open wider. This dilation encourages the flow of blood to the affected body part and initiates an instantly soothing sensation. This single use pack heats to an ideal temperate to apply healing and calming heat to an injury, without burning a patient’s skin or making them feel uncomfortably hot. This pack is both portable and convenient to use in any number of locations and, as such, it is ideal for paramedics, first aid personnel and sports coaches, as well as picnickers.
