Heat and cold are the two most common types of pain-relief therapies for muscle and joint pain. Which one you use depends on whether the pain is new (acute) or recurring (somewhat older / chronic).
Asweda Wheat Bags are an excellent natural alternative for relieving aches & pains. They are 100% cotton bags, filled with carefully selected, high quality wheat grain. They can be heated in the microwave or cooled in the freezer and are then applied to the body wherever healing or comfort is needed.
Asweda wheat bags use grains that have unique structural properties that allow them to heat quickly and then release the warmth slowly over a period of time. Heat therapy with Asweda wheat bags dilates the blood vessels inside the muscles and surrounding areas, increasing the blood supply and enhancing the flow of oxygen & other nutrients, and thus promotes healing.
Asweda wheat bags can be put in a plastic cover and cooled in the freezer for immediate use after a new injury to reduce inflammation and swelling and aid the healing.
Whether hot or cold, the movement of the grains naturally settles them against the contours of the body making them pliable and comfortable to use.
Asweda wheat bags are reusable and can be heated over and over again. They generally have a long life span. However, we urge you to carefully follow instructions provided with the pack to ensure longevity.
What does heat therapy do?
Heat opens up blood vessels, which increases blood flow and supplies oxygen and nutrients to reduce pain in joints and relax sore muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The warmth also decreases muscle spasms and can increase range of motion. Applying superficial heat to your body can improve the flexibility of tendons and ligaments, reduce muscle spasms, and alleviate pain.
When do you use it?
Apply heat if you have stiff joints, muscle tension & stiffness or chronic muscle and joint pain.
A few tips:
What does cold therapy do?
Cold slows down blood flow to an injury, thereby reducing pain and swelling. Cold therapy slows circulation, reducing inflammation, muscle spasm, and pain. It should be used if the area is swollen or bruised.
When do you use it?
Any cold treatment should be used for 24 to 48 hours after an injury. Cold therapy is good for sprains, strains, bumps, and bruises that may occur in sports or lifting. Apply cold packs to the injured areas for no more than 20 minutes at a time, removing the cold for 10 minutes and reapplying it again.
How can I use it safely?
Don’t apply it for longer than 20 minutes.
