Moist heat therapy is used to calm and relax tight and painful muscles. This therapy is often used before an adjustment in order to relax muscle spasm, calm irritated nerves, and allow the joints to move more easily.
Ice therapy is the most natural and one of the most effective ways to reduce pain and inflammation. Ice or an ice pack may be recommended after an injury, to soothe a migraine headache, or after a particularly invasive muscle treatment. If you have any questions about when Ice therapy is appropriate, don’t hesitate to ask.
