Heat blocks pain
By heating a particular area, you activate thermo receptors which inhibit your body's ability to send pain signals. That's why it's recommended to use heat to reduce pain from chronic injuries like back pain.
Heat increases circulation
Blood vessels dilate when exposed to heat. Increased blood flow means that additional nutrients and oxygen are sent to affected areas. This means injuries - like muscle spasms, strains, or strains - can heal faster with the application of localized heat.
Heat promotes flexibility
Applying heat allows muscles to become more malleable, alleviating stiffness and relaxing soft tissue. It lowers the lactic acid buildup in muscles and will help relax tension.
