How does therapeutic heat help with pain?

Heat therapy helps relieve the underlying cause of back and muscle pain in two ways:

  • By increasing blood flow to the painful area
  • By relaxing tight, sore muscles

This helps you to get active again as soon as possible, which is vital for speeding up the recovery process.
