Weekend warriors

The weather is getting warmer (on the west coast) and people are flocking to the garden centres to buy plants to fill their gardens.
We always forget to check our personal fitness and we always suffer after the first day of garden work with sore aching muscles and sometimes more serious injuries such as pulled muscles.
Muscle aches and pains

These are all preventable, using one of our heat packs to warm up muscles will stop your muscles from pulling and if you should have those badge of honour aches the next day use a heat pack to relieve the pain naturally

Sports Injuries made better with heat packs

Sports Injuries are invariably caused by too much too soon, when muscle are cold and inflexible.
You need to warm up the muscles so they can stretch more easily.
our Sports Therapy Wrap can be used hot or cold.

Cold for swelling and Hot for old aches and pains

You must take care warming muscles that you don't over extend the limits of the muscles, as heat can give you a false sense of extension and you may take the stretch passed what you would normally use, thus injuring the muscle even more.
Use hot or cold

Sports Injury, should I use hot or cold therapy?

We keep getting asked what should I use for a sports injury,hot or cold therapy?
The simple answer is:


If the injury is a swelling use cold.
Cold therapy is the best immediate treatment for acute injuries because it reduces swelling and pain. Ice is a vaso-constrictor (it causes the blood vessels to narrow) and it limits internal bleeding at the injury site.
Sports Therapy heating pad


If it is an old injury aches and pains use hot/warm

here is our number one heating pad that can be use hot or cold

Heat is generally used for chronic injuries or injuries that have no inflammation or swelling. Sore, stiff, nagging muscle or joint pain is ideal for the use of heat therapy. Athletes with chronic pain or injuries may use heat therapy before exercise to increase the elasticity of joint connective tissues and to stimulate blood flow. Heat can also help relax tight muscles or muscle spasms.

Keeping warm

This winter has been really harsh and most times difficult to keep warm.
Our solution is fast and cost effective.

Just pop your Warm Buddy heating pad in the microwave for the stated time and this will keep you warm for an hour or so, then repeat as required.
We have found that using this method we have been able to turn the thermostat down a few degrees, thus saving money on heating.
Good luck and keep warm.
Spring is just around the corner as yesterday we saw snowdrops and crocus blooming and daffodils.

Heating Pad uses

Here are some practical uses for our heating pads:
These are a few areas our heating pads can be of use for your well being.
Also remember these can also be used hot or cold depending on the therapy required.
As a rule of thumb cold is used for new swollen injuries and hot for old aches and pains.
