Heat therapy and hot and cold therapy are commonly used by therapists in the treatment of sports injuries, sprains and strains.

Therapeutic heat can help relieve muscle spasm which in turn will help break the pain cycle.

Some areas, especially those high in collagen such as ligament and tendon have a poor blood supply and the use of heat helps increase blood flow to these areas, encouraging tissue healing.

An extensive range of products is available; from the simple heat pack, WHEATeeze bags, warming gels and rubs to more complex devices such as back, shoulder and knee braces with inbuilt pockets to hold specifically designed heat packs.
