– How does heat help relieve cramps/spasms?


Title says it all. I’m wondering how exactly heat pads are helping, or honestly if they’re really helping at all and I’m not just imagining it.

In: Biology

It helps to relax the muscle that is cramping up as well as increase blood flow to the area.

Increases blood flow which brings more oxygen to the muscle as well as takes out all the biproducts of the muscle working (metabolism).
