Prevention from injury

Preparation and caring for your muscles before you take part in any exercise is equally as important to cooling down and stretching out after exercise.

Using heat therapy before exercise, for muscular aches and pains, as part of your warm up can increase blood flow which helps increase the flexibility of muscles and joints to help prevent injury.

It is important to note you should not use heat therapy immediately after strenuous exercise or immediately after injury as it increases circulation. When there is any injury, cooling therapy should be used for this at the same time.
