The application of moist heat-fomentation-is a commonly prescribed therapy in medical practice today. The body responds to moist heat by dilating the blood vessels, increasing the blood flow to the area under treatment. This increased circulation speeds recovery by bringing in fresh blood cells and taking away the wastes which may hinder healing.

The Thermophore Hot Pack is more effective than other electric heating pads on the market because it delivers very intense moist heat. Moist heat is especially useful in treating pain caused by muscle spasms from strain and tension. The hot pack, and rest, will gradually relax the muscle in spasm, restoring its normal length and relieving pain.

The Thermophore Hot Pack produces moist heat automatically. Moisture is drawn from humidity in the air and retained in the outer flannel cover. The hot pack produces moisture for 20-30 minutes; after that time, the flannel begins to dry out and the unit should be set aside to regain moisture from the air. The body should be allowed to return to normal temperature and another treatment can be taken in 1-1/2 to 2 hours. The petite Thermophore Hot Pack can help temorarily relieve pain in the cervical spine, neck, throat, shoulder, sinus or TMJ.
