When you are in pain or groaning more than usual when you stand up, it can be difficult to decide whether to apply ice or heat to get some relief. Here’s some advice for what to do the next time you feel a twinge.
Home remedies for body pain
Natural remedies are an option that may help you feel better with fewer side effects. The major home remedies include turmeric, heat therapy, cold therapy, and massage. There are also some of the fastest ways to get rid of body aches which include walking and swimming, doing arm exercises and shoulder rolls, and taking a hot bath.
Use of heat & ice to relieve pain?
Heat increases the blood and nutrient flow to a particular location of the body. It frequently works best to warm up muscles before activities or to relieve morning stiffness. Blood flow is slowed by cold, which lessens discomfort and swelling. It frequently works best for temporary discomforts like sprains or strains.
Use heat or cold to relieve aches and pains brought on by ailments like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, back pain, fibromyalgia, and neck discomfort. You can get relief from each of these symptoms:
- Aches, spasms, and discomfort in the muscles
- Aches in the upper and lower back
- Tender, swollen, or stiff joints
- Neck discomfort
- wrist, hand, or finger pain
- Knee ache
Apply a hot or cold compress using any of these products for momentary pain relief of any of these conditions:
- An electric blanket heater
- A gel pack that is freezer- or microwave-safe
- A container of frozen vegetables or ice
- A tiny towel or washcloth dipped in hot or cold water (wring it out, fold it, and apply to the sore area)
Cryotherapy cold therapy for pain management
Cryotherapy literally translates to “cold therapy.” When you press a bag of frozen peas on a swollen ankle or knee, you are using a modern (though basic) form of cryotherapy to treat your pain.
Cryotherapy can be used in a variety of ways, such as ice packs, coolant sprays, ice massages, and whirlpools or ice baths. Cryotherapy refers to cold therapy with ice or gel packs that are usually kept in the freezer until needed when treating injuries at home. These are still one of the most basic and time-tested remedies for pain and swelling.
