Heat therapy is the use of heat in therapy, such as for pain relief and health. Our clinic mainly provides sea salt hot pack. It can be beneficial to those with arthritis and stiff muscles and injuries to the deep tissue of the skin.
Heat therapy is most commonly used for rehabilitation purposes. Heat creates higher tissue temperatures, which produces vasodilation that increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients and the elimination of carbon dioxide and metabolic waste.
The therapeutic effects of heat include increasing the extensibility of collagen tissues; decreasing joint stiffness; reducing pain; relieving muscle spasms; reducing inflammation, oedema, and aids in the post acute phase of healing; and increasing blood flow. The increased blood flow to the affected area provides proteins, nutrients, and oxygen for better healing.
