In January, many people rush to the gym, buy workout products or start their new year’s exercise resolution. However, sometimes when the muscles are exercised, acids are formed in the body and blood flow and oxygen are decreased resulting in achy joints and sore muscles.
The Solution: A Nature Creation Natural Hot and Cold Therapy Pack (www.naturecreation.com) – Many experts agree that placing a hot pack over the area where there is muscle pain or soreness, will not only soothe the muscle but help relieve the pain as well. In addition, the hot pack will externally stimulate the blood flow and help relax the muscle.
A Nature Creation hot pack not only improves the blood flow into the muscle, it may also help flush out the acid built up in the muscle. In addition, Nature Creation products are filled with a proprietary blend of 100% natural herbs and grains adding a relaxing, aromatherapy advantage to your treatment.
When using a hot pack, make sure that the muscles are just sore and not swollen or inflamed. If there are signs of inflammation, use the Nature Creation pack as a cold pack.
When to use a Nature Creation product as a hot or cold pack?
Use as a Cold Pack: Primarily to soothe ACUTE pain in one specific area that strikes out of the blue (like your back, knee, etc.) to reduce swelling & inflammation.
When to Apply: Ideally, you should always apply within 1 hour of the ache, pain and soreness setting in (like after a workout).
For How Long: Use the cold pack for 15 minutes max, then 30 minutes without. Do this up to 4 times a day, as needed; for up to 2 days max. If you still need pain relief, then switch to HEAT (below).
Use as a Hot Pack: Primarily to soothe CHRONIC pain that comes and goes over time (like lower back, neck, hamstrings, etc.) and to relax tight muscles.
When to Apply: Ideally, you should only apply heat after any acute pain associated with the area has passed. Otherwise, you could worsen the swelling in that area.
For How Long: Use a Nature Creation Hot Pack for 20 minutes. Do this up to 3 times a day, as needed, indefinitely.
