Thermal applications

The use of warmth in therapy is essential to prepare structures for movement and to increase blood flow. Therapists apply various methods such as, paraffin baths, water baths, hot-packs to increase the elasticity of soft tissues. Cryotherapy is used to slow down and shorten the inflammatory process and reduce pain and oedema. Contrast baths, coldpacks, icing and cooled lentils are used regularly by the hand therapist for this purpose.
