DIY Series – How to Use a Hot Pack

I rarely see skin burns from hot packs but on occasion I have had patients burn themselves because they did not know how to correctly apply a hot pack.

Skin burns can easily be prevented.

Heat from a hot pack is a great way to reduce general muscle soreness and joint or muscle tension. Heat can also be very relaxing.

In this next video of the DIY Series, you will learn:

  • What happens to your body when heat is applied
  • Why we would want to apply heat
  • When not to use heat
  • How to apply a microwaveable hot pack correctly and reduce your risk of skin burns significantly

I hope I never hear about someone burning themselves from a hot pack again. If you or someone you know uses a hot pack frequently, could you please forward this email to them?

Skin burns can be serious, and I don’t want anyone hurting themselves while trying to help themselves ease soreness and tension.

Enjoy the video and stay safe,

Dr. Jeanette
