How heat therapy works
Blood flow provides oxygen and nutrients to the muscles in your body and helps them function. More than this, it also aids in eliminating waste, especially the one that develops in the areas of your body, which are much needed when working out. When applying heat to a specific area, the blood flow to that area will increase and will help in reducing the pain and tension in your muscles. Hot Therapy is used to relax sore muscles and increase movement.
How Cold Therapy works
Cold Therapy is the opposite of heat therapy as it slows down blood flow instead of speeding it up. By slowing down blood flow, injuries like cramps and inflammation can be prevented. This also helps reduce swelling and numbs the pain in the area affected. Cold Therapy is usually used right after an injury.
Elite athletes alternate in using both hot and cold Therapy as studies show that it can help reduce muscle pain.
