Heat and Cold Therapy

You’ve probably heard to use an ice pack or heat to help reduce swelling after an injury. The same principle applies for using this method as a part of chiropractic treatment. Usually, this treatment begins with ice therapy for 10 to 15 minutes and then quickly switching over to a heat wrap. This technique helps promote blood flow in the area and improves healing times. This is a good technique for low back pain relief, arthritis pain relief, and muscle strain pain relief. Switching between heat and ice therapy is a great back pain therapy. Ice is used to reduce any swelling in the area as well as to numb the pain. Then, heat is used to help the muscles relax and improve circulation in the area to promote healing. It works great for chronic lower back pain and back injuries.
