Cold and Heat Therapy for Shoulder and Back Pain
Generally speaking, when it comes to whether one should use cold or heat therapy for shoulder and back pain, heat is for muscles, chronic pain and stress. On the other hand, ice is for injuries as it calms damaged tissues. Although it is always a good idea to consult a medical professional regarding whether you should utilize cold or hot therapy for your muscle pain.
The ice pack for back and shoulder pain can be helpful for a wide variety of conditions, including muscle strain or sprain, arthritis, muscle spasms, as part of a rehab program, or simply for sore muscles in the shoulders or back. Rather than one large ice pack for muscle pain, the low back muscle pain wrap accommodates for these gel packs. This way if one needs heat or ice for lower back pain on just one side of the body, one can simply remove the ice pack from the opposite side.
