Cold and heat are the most common types of non-addictive and non-invasive pain relief therapies for joint pain and muscle. In general, injury causes inflammation and swelling. Ice will decrease the blood flow to the injury by decreasing inflammation and swelling. Pain can be treated with heat which will bring blood to the area and promote healing. Heat therapy opens up the blood vessels and increase blood flow by supplying oxygen and nutrients in order to relax the muscles, ligaments and tendons. Sources of heat can supply dry or moist warmth. Heat can be applied by electric or microwavable heating pad, gel packs, hot water bottle or hot water baths. Cold therapy slows down the blood supply to the injury section by reducing pain and swelling. There are many useful reactions taking place when cold therapy is applied such as slow blood circulation, reduction of inflammation, pain and muscle spasm. Cold therapy packs should be used if the area is swollen or bruised. Cold therapy can be taken in the form of ice or gel pack. Cold therapy packs should be used for 24 to 48 hours after injury. Cold therapy is good for sprains, bumps, strains and bruises that occur in sports or during physical training sessions. According to the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, cold therapy is a good treatment option for many but not indicated for people who are under treatment such as impaired circulation or ischemia, absence of skin sensitivity (anesthesia), vasospasm (Raynaud's disease), open or infected wound, hypersensitivity to cold, acute dermatitis or eczema, and inability to communicate, etc.
