Heat Therapy Vs. Cold Therapy

Cold therapy is recommended as part of the "RICE" protocol (Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate) during the first 24-48 hours after minor injuries or medical procedures because it reduces swelling and pain.

Ice causes blood vessels to narrow and limits internal bleeding at the injury site to reduce tissue damage. Apply cold therapy to the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes at a time, several times a day. Our Ice it ColdComfort Model 540 provides a generous area of penetrating cold therapy to the injured area.

Heat is generally used for chronic injuries or chronic pain. Sore, stiff, nagging muscle or joint pain is ideal for the use of heat therapy. Thermophore® Deep-Heat™ products are designed to deliver the kind of intense heat that can penetrate deeply to really bring you relief from pain

The Thermophore® name has long been known for providing convenient, effective, deep-penetrating moist heat to help relieve all types of pain, muscle spasm and stiffness and is even classified as a medical device by the FDA
