Heat Packs & Heat Wraps
Treating Pain with Warm Buddy Heat and Cold packs
With our Warm Buddy products we treat everything from arthritis to pulled muscles to inflammation with ice packs or heating pads. Treating pain with hot and cold can be extremely effective for a number of different conditions and injuries, and easily affordable. The tricky part is knowing what situations calls for hot, and which calls for cold. Sometimes a single treatment will even include both.
As a general rule of thumb, use ice for acute injuries or pain, along with inflammation and swelling. Use heat therapy for muscle pain or stiffness.
How it works
Warm Buddy Heat therapy works by improving circulation and blood flow to a particular area due to increased temperature. Increasing the temperature of the afflicted area even slightly can soothe discomfort and increase muscle flexibility. Heat therapy can relax and soothe muscles and heal damaged tissue.
When not to use
There are certain cases where heat therapy should not be used. If the area in question is either bruised or swollen (or both), it may be better to use cold therapy. Heat therapy also shouldn’t be applied to an area with an open wound.
People with certain pre-existing conditions should not use heat therapy due to higher risk of burns or complications due to heat application. These conditions include:
- vascular diseases
- deep vein thrombosis
- multiple sclerosis (MS)
Warm Buddy heat packs or Heat therapy is often most beneficial when used for a good amount of time, unlike cold therapy, which needs to be limited.
Minor stiffness or tension can often be relieved with only 15 to 20 minutes of heat therapy.
How it works
Warm Buddy Cold therapy is also known as cryotherapy. It works by reducing blood flow to a particular area, which can significantly reduce inflammation and swelling that causes pain, especially around a joint or a tendon. It can temporarily reduce nerve activity, which can also relieve pain.

Heat Wraps for Pain Relief
1 in 5 Canadians suffer from chronic pain. Despite this widespread occurrence, many individuals still suffer with unrelieved or under-treated pain. Pain’s negative impact has been found to span every age and every type and source of pain in which it has been studied.
People dealing with pain have a significantly decreased quality of life and are more likely to show symptoms of depression. The Warm Buddy Company is committed to helping improve the quality of life of pain sufferers with our line up of natural heat wraps and heat therapy products.
Warm Buddy heat wraps provide pain relief with deep penetrating heat that increases blood flow. Increasing blood flow brings more nutrients and flushes out injured debris. Heat therapy also promotes speedier healing by stimulating the bodies natural metabolic rate. Applying heat to an injury activates receptors that block the effect of chemical messengers that cause pain to be detected by the body.
Warm Buddy heat wraps are a natural way to deal with pain and injuries. Many studies have concluded that heat wrap therapy is more effective for relieving lower back pain than drugs such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen. Heat wrap therapy does not have the potential risk to the liver, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract than can accompany inappropriate analgesic (oral pain medication) usage. Heat wrap treatments can be better than oral analgesics because they go beyond pain relief to provide muscle relaxation and increase flexibility.
Warm Buddy therapy wraps can also be applied as cold therapy treatments. When used cold, swelling and inflammation are decreased. Cold dulls nerve activity and reduces the sensation of pain. Cold wrap therapy provides vasoconstriction of blood vessels which stops fluid from traveling to the injury where swelling occurs thereby reducing the amount of swelling and permits natural fluid drainage. Cold also reduces muscle spasms and tightens muscles (which limits stretching) and allows them to heal.
