Effective hot/cold therapy is a proven pain reliever. Used everyday in clinics, hospitals, and doctor’s offices to relieve arthritis and joint pain, muscle strains and stiffness. Both modalities act primarily to affect local circulation in the tissues.
The MFH pack is a must have for your survival or first aid kit. It will find its place in your backpack or your car.
The application of a hot pack or heating pad, causes the blood vessels in the skin to dilate or “open-up”. This allows blood to flow more freely and acts to rapidly distribute the heat being applied throughout the body.
It is extremely easy to use. Just flex the metal disc inside the pack and it will go warm in a matter of minutes. Leave to cool down for some time before reuse.
The application of cold is useful in cases of acute injury where tissue swelling is likely to occur. The application of cold packs to the body surface does just the opposite; it causes the local blood vessels to constrict, drastically reducing the amount of blood circulating in the region. With circulation impaired, cold can penetrate much deeper into the body tissue, easily chilling the underlying muscles.
When in need for a cold application, place the pack in the freezer.
