You can use Bremed Electric Heating Pad to gently warm and relax
various parts of the body. Using the heat pad stimulates blood
circulation especially on stiff muscles and it also helps to relax
tension of the muscles. 3 levels of electric temperature control
regulate the temperature according to your preference.
Thermal/heat therapy is one of our physiotherapy's treatment modalities, its main purpose is to provide relief and to treat symptoms of non-acute and/or chronic pain, especially helpful to pains that are related to muscle spasms and tensions.
Heat therapy helps to dilate our blood vessels, causing blood vessels to expand, causing an increase blood flow (circulation) to muscles, skin and surrounding tissues.
Blood carries nutrients which helps with healing and recovery, helping to induce muscle relaxation, relaxing muscle spasms and even decreasing joint stiffness.
Heat via electrical hotpacks or microwaveable hotpacks are applied before treatment to increase blood flow, relax and loosen muscles and joints for effective interventions and therapy AND/OR after physiotherapy sessions to aid recovery and reduce muscle spasms post treatment.
Some of our patients sleep on it, and it's not recommended but if you like extra warmth at night, please please please wrap it with an additional layer of towel for additional safety.
I note that some of our patients and therapists enjoy using it when they're cold (especially in cold climates or offices) or when they have aching tummy - it does provide some nice relief and warmth (and fuzzy).
You can use it over several times a day, with the use of one or more layers of towels, but you must take note of times where you shouldn't (keep) use it: people with acute pain, swelling, open wounds, and sensitive/'thin' skin should not use it without the physiotherapist to supervise the condition or situation.
