Sore muscular strains are caused by improper burdens or a poor posture, resulting in muscle tension and a weakening in the circulation of the blood. Heat treatment increases the blood circulation in the tissues, opens capillaries, increases tissue elasticity and releases muscle tension. It is important to note that inflamed muscles must not be treated with heat, as the heat treatment will accelerate the spread of the inflammation.
With heat treatment, even minor changes in the temperature used can significantly increase the tissue metabolism. The optimum results are achieved when the heat treatment is carried out at regular intervals. In addition to localized heat treatment, the effects can also be reflected in deeper tissues. As a support to heat treatment, it is important to remember that light exercise also contributes to the release of muscle tension.
