Moist Heat Treatments

Moist heat treatments work by enlarging the patient’s blood vessels and allowing more blood to rush to an injured area. The blood brings with it nutrients and carries waste away, enhancing the healing process.

In moist heat treatments, moist hot packs are kept in hot water and then wrapped in towels to prevent burning. They are applied for between 15 and 20 minutes.
