Hot/Cold Therapy for Joint Pain | Scott Malcolm | Dallas, TX

Heat Therapy

Heat is relaxing. Stiff, tense, and sore muscles can be relaxed and relieved with a little heat, and joints affected by arthritis pain are no different. Not only does heat relax muscles, it also stimulates blood flow and improves circulation, helps increases range of motion, and reduces pain.

Cold Therapy 

Cold therapy can reduce inflammation, a major cause of arthritis in the joints, pain and stiffness. Placing a cold pack on a swollen joint can also help bring it back down to size, which will also lessen joint pain.
