Heat and cold therapy:
Ice is applied to relieve inflammation, as noted above, but what about heat? Sometimes you may benefit from a combination of heat and cold instead of only using ice. In such cases, ice takes care of inflammation while heat increases the blood flow to the area.
By increasing the blood flow, heat will help us clear the toxins accumulated in the tissue
It is a fact that the weather sometimes influences how we feel, especially in the case of knee pain. Very hot weather causes dehydration, which reduces lubrication in the knee.
Very cold weather may cause a flare-up in case of arthritis. Thus, adjusting the temperature in your room can be another method to reduce pain symptoms.
