Aqua-Relief - Hot What exactly does Heat do?
- Heat improves circulation.
- Heat improves cell function (metabolism).
- Heat decreases stiffness in tendons and ligaments.
- Heat relaxes the muscles and decreases muscle spasm.
- Heat lessens pain.
Aqua-Relief - Cold What exactly does Cold do?
- Cold therapy with ice is the best immediate treatment for acute injuries because it can reduce swelling and pain. Ice is a vasoconstrictor (causes the blood vessels to narrow) and it limits bleeding at the injury site. Apply ice to the affected area several times a day.
- Cold water therapy is also helpful in treating chronic pain.
The Pain Management Benefits:
The natural therapy aqua relief system delivers pain relief to achy joints, or muscles due to arthritic pain , or carpal tunnel syndrome or many other nerve pain conditions. Hot therapy aqua relief system is a versatile hot/cold pack that will help for both systemic pain conditions as well as part specific pain conditions (knee, back, wrist, shoulder, etc.) A setting of 120° F is particularly useful to provide deep penetrating therapeutic heat therapy.
The Pain Cycle : Low back and neck pain may be caused by trauma or continual strain. The body responds to such pain with muscle guarding, an attempt to immobilize the painful site by tightening the muscles. Muscle guarding impairs circulation in the affected area. The decrease in blood supply leads to a decrease in metabolism with an accumulation of waste products moist heat modalities can help break this pain cycle and aid in the normal healing process.
