Does heat therapy reduce swelling?

Yes, heat therapy can help reduce swelling in certain cases. When applied to an injury or affected area, heat therapy increases blood flow and relaxes the surrounding muscles. This improved circulation helps to remove excess fluid and reduce swelling. Heat therapy can be particularly effective for chronic conditions or injuries that have already passed the acute stage. However, it is important to note that heat therapy may not be suitable for all types of swelling. In some cases, such as fresh injuries or acute inflammation, cold therapy may be more appropriate. It is always best to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the most suitable treatment for your specific condition.
