Applying heat to injuries can be very beneficial to the recovery of a particular injury and in getting you better quicker.

The benefits include:

  • Increased blood flow to the affected area
  • Increased flexibility to the area
  • Pain relief
  • Warming up an area to perform a specific exercise program
  • Relax tight muscles and joint structures thus reducing tension throughout the body.

Injuries heat can be helpful for include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Overuse injuries such as tendinitis
  • Muscle strains and tears (after the acute stage)
  • Chronic pain
  • Arthritic conditions (hip, knee, spine etc.)

A great way to apply heat is with an Ormond Physiotherapy Heat Wheat Bag applied to the affected area.
