HOW DOES IT HELP?

The NHS recommends the application of heat; it stimulates the nervous system, particularly the thermoreceptors, which 'may' block the signals/ sensation of pain to the brain. Additionally, heat increases blood flow to the area, which provides an increased rate of oxygen & nutrient delivery to muscles in that area, contributing to the muscles becoming more relaxed. Thus taking away any tension that the muscles may bring to the area.
