Hot PacksHydrocullator Packs

Moist heat or hydrocullator packs cause blood vessels to dilate which increases blood flow to soft tissue injuries.  They can be used to increase motion by relaxing muscles and decrease pain/stiffness.

Cold Packs

Cold packs cause blood vessels to constrict, causing a decrease in inflammatory components.  It can work well to reduce swelling and decreasing pain.
