With fibromyalgia, patients experience pain and stiffness in the muscles, but there are no measurable findings on X-rays or lab tests. Typically muscle pain is accompanied by fatigue, sleep problems, and anxiety or depression. Many people with fibromyalgia find that their symptoms and quality of life substantially improve as they identify the most effective pain relievers and make lifestyle changes. This often includes using treating fibromyalgia with pain relief medicine that can have significant long term side effects and risks involved. Applying Moist Heat is a great way to help manage Fibromyalgia muscle pain.
Three reasons why moist therapy is effective for fibromyalgia pain relief:
- Moist heat is BETTER for your skin: Dry heat removes moisture from your skin, making it more prone to dryness and cracking.
- Moist heat works FASTER: Water conducts heat better than air, so the heat gets to your muscles faster and deeper.
- Moist Heat DECREASES stiffness and pain: Moist heat increases blood flow, which brings oxygen and vital nutrients to the muscles. This type of treatment helps reduce stiffness and also flush toxins away. Tightened muscles relax and, over time, restore to their standard length.
Moist heat therapy products are a natural alternative or complement to over the counter drugs and work great with most physical therapy regimens. Developed with form-fitting designs to target specific pain areas and soft-touch fabrics for maximum comfort with widespread pain, most moist heat packs are reusable and safe. Many moist heat therapy products can be warmed in the microwave to activate moist heat.
