Frequently Asked Questions (2)
I have heard that cold therapy is also a good way to relieve pain. When is cold therapy the right treatment and when heat therapy?The therapeutic use of cold or warmth is a well-known physiotherapeutic treatment. Whether to use heat or cold on the affected area depends on the type of pain. Heat has been known for generations to be an effective way to relieve pain caused by muscle strain and tension, and in many cases applying external heat sources can relieve muscle pain. Cold is recommended for acute conditions, such as acute inflammation or injuries, e.g. sports injuries such as sprains, contusions, bruising, and swelling. If you are in doubt as to whether to apply heat or cold, please consult your pharmacist or physician.
When should I use Hansaplast Capsaicin Heat Patches and when Hansaplast Therapeutic Heat Pads?Both products can be used for the relief of musculoskeletal pain. They differ in their mode of action. Hansaplast Capsaicin Heat Patches induce the feeling of warmth by means of a pharmacological ingredient and inhibit the pain-transmitting Substance P whereas Hansaplast Therapeutic Heat Pads are an external source of physical heat.
Hansaplast Therapeutic Heat Pads provide long-lasting deeply penetrating physical heat. It can also be used by persons who react with unpleasant skin sensations when using capsaicin creams, ointments or pads.
