This heat pack is a personal favorite of HotShotz. It is small enough to travel, yet is still big enough to feel the heat and actually enjoy it. Works well for pretty much any part of your body. Great for cramps, sore, achy muscles and joints. Also, keeps you warm, whether at home or on the go at football games or out and about or camping. In addition, great for using if you suffer from coldness from Raynaud’s, anemia, thyroid problems, or iron deficiency. It is the longest lasting heat pack that HotShotz makes. To use the HotShotz Round Warmer, squeeze the activator button until it clicks and the heat pack will heat up on its own. For multiple uses, cover with a fabric cloth (dish cloth will work), put in a pot of boiling water and let it boil for 10 to 20 minutes, ensuring all crystals have melted, and then remove it from the pot and let the heat pack cool off to around room temperature and it’s ready to be used! On average, usability will generally last about four hours. Time will vary depending on how you use it and insulate it.
TENS is a non-invasive, drug free method of controlling pain, which uses tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves in order to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or eliminating the pain.
Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
EMS works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle(s). This is achieved by sending low frequency electric pulses through muscle tissue causing them to gently contract. In this way the muscles are passively exercised and blood flow is increased
Galvanic Stimulators use direct current, which creates an electrical field over the treated area. The positive pad works like ice, causing reduced circulation to the area under the pad. The negative pad works like heat, causing increased circulation.
IF sends small comfortable electrical impulses through your skin to work on deeper tissue stimulation. The sensation works to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.
Infrared Light Therapy help the body by delivering specific light waveforms that increase circulation. Increasing circulation helps promote healing, lessen swelling, and helps in reducing pain.
Portable Ultrasounds give advanced pain relief using sonic stimulation of soft tissue cells. They generate pulsed, high frequency sound waves, which travel deep into the tissue, generating vasodilation. This helps increase blood flow to the treated area.
Russian stimulation uses medium frequencies to provide stimulation to muscle groups. This is used to reduce muscle spasms as well as for muscle strengthening. This method was created to produce maximal muscle strengthening effects.
Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely small amounts of electrical current (millionths of an amp) to help relieve pain and heal soft tissues of the body. The electrical current used in Microcurrent Therapy is so small that it is rarely felt.
