Heat therapy is used basically for pain relief. Bruises, sprains, arthritis pain, stiff neck and back aches are some situations in which heat therapy can be helpful. Effective heat therapy products generate and maintain the right amount of heat. The hot pack should be warm, rather than being hot as it could burn the skin. The warm temperature maintained by the hot pack helps the heat to penetrate deep down and produce the desired effect without irritating the skin. The duration for which the heat should be applied depends upon the nature and magnitude of injury. At HPFY we have a wide variety of hot packs and heating units available for your convenience.
