Heat Therapy

Understand the Benefits of Heat Therapy

Heat therapy is a potential chiropractic care approach to healing musculoskeletal conditions. Heat therapy can be used as a standalone treatment or in combination with other treatments, such as massage, ultrasound, exercise, and manipulation. At Grand Teton Chiropractic PC in Idaho Falls, ID, we offer heat therapy as a chiropractic treatment approach.

Enhances Blood Circulation

Chiropractic adjustments are generally used to improve blood circulation throughout the body, and heat therapy can further enhance this effect. Increasing local blood flow in a particular body area increases access to oxygen and nutrients, promoting faster healing. Heat also helps relax tight or spasmed muscles and reduce muscle tension caused by an injury or chronic condition.

Promotes Physical Health

The ultimate purpose of chiropractic adjustments is to promote physical health, and heat therapy offers an additional way to achieve this goal. The heat helps reduce stiffness in the joints and muscles, enabling a better range of motion. This reduction is especially helpful for recovery from a recent injury or chronic condition like arthritis. However, it is essential to note that heat therapy should not be used for acute injuries, such as swelling or bruising.

Reduces Pain and Discomfort

Usually, people experiencing pain or discomfort due to an injury, chronic condition, or other musculoskeletal issues seek relief. Heat therapy can provide that much-needed relief while speeding up the healing process. An experienced chiropractor will ensure the heat is not too intense to avoid further damage. Any discomfort will quickly subside as the heat penetrates deep into the affected area.

Improved Sleep

Heat therapy is now used to help those with insomnia and other sleep issues get much-needed rest. The heat helps relax the body, reduce pain and tension, and encourage deep relaxation so people can finally drift off into a peaceful sleep. Studies have also shown that heat therapy can improve sleep quality in individuals suffering from chronic pain-related conditions, such as fibromyalgia and arthritis.

Treatment for Depression

Much has been said about the increasing prevalence of depression and other mental health issues today. Heat therapy is an effective treatment for those suffering from depression, due to its calming and soothing effects. By working with our chiropractor, you will receive quick relief from your depression symptoms while also seeing improvements in physical health.
