Hot And Cold Therapy

When an injury strikes, it can be confusing as to when to use hot or cold pain therapy. Generally, doctors recommend cold treatment within the first 24 hours of an injury. Applying a cold compress reduces the swelling and inflammation associated with an injury. Heat is usually best after the initial injury occurs because it soothes the affected area and also encourages circulation. Sometimes, doctors suggest a combination of both. For example, back pain sufferers are often told to try 20 minutes of ice, followed by 20 minutes of heat and then another session of cold therapy.

Either way, it is helpful to have hot and cold pain relief products on hand in the house and in first aid kits, especially if you have family members that are active in sports. The Online Drugstore has a fabulous selection of all of the top-selling hot and cold pain relief products that doctors often recommend in over-the-counter treatment.

Since ice is not always handy especially out on the playing field, cold compresses are a must for moms and dads with active kids. They are a must-have for coaches too. Applying cold compression therapy quickly can often lessen the swelling of an injury. Cold compresses don’t melt into watery messes and many are often reusable. The Online Drugstore carries both kinds and at great prices.

Whether you are recovering from an injury or suffering from chronic pain, hot therapy can often help relieve some of the discomfort. Wraps, patches that apply heat, and thermal heat pads applied to the affected area are a great way to relieve pain and increase circulation. Sometimes topical creams can also bring the much-needed hot and cold pain therapy.
