Moist heat therapy uses a wet source to transfer heat to your tissues in order to achieve pain relief. The wet source can take many forms including a hot water bottle, a steam towel, a sauna, a paraffin bath or a moist heating pack like a HotPac or a Theratherm Digital Moist Heating Pack. In this post, we examine a few key questions related to moist heat therapy and its benefits and risks compared to the more traditional form of dry heat therapy. The questions we hope to answer include the situations for which moist heat may be a good choice, whether moist heat can help to treat swelling and how you can make a moist heating pad for yourself at home.


The benefits of heat therapy, whether moist or dry, come firstly in the form of increased blood circulation through the injured area. This has the effect of speeding the healing process. Heat can also reduce pain through the “gating” process. This process utilizes the fact that the receptors that transmit pain signals to the brain are also responsible for transmitting heat signals. As a result, the application of dry or moist heat stimulates these receptors and “drowns out” the pain signals they would otherwise transmit to the brain. The result is a reduction in the level of pain the patient is experiencing. This process is similar to that used by menthol based pain relievers such as Motion Medicine.


Moist Heat Achieves Quicker & Deeper Penetration Of Body Tissues

Moist heat has been clinically proven to have several advantages over dry heat. These include quicker and deeper penetration of the patient’s tissues and a more powerful response from the body’s temperature receptors.

However, although moist heat offers these advantages, its effects do not last as long as those of dry heat. Studies have shown that the benefits of moist heat last only for around 2 hours on average while those of dry heat can persist for as long as 8 hours.


Treatment Of Arthritis & Other Deep Sources Of Pain Using Moist Heat

Image of knee affected by osteoarthritis - moist heat therapy can be a good choice for treating deep seated sources of pain like osteoarthritis.
Moist heat therapy can be a good choice for treating deep seated sources of pain like knee osteoarthritis.

Because of its ability to reach deep tissues and pain sources, moist heat can be particularly effective when treating arthritic pain. Osteoarthritis, for example, is a result of sections of bone rubbing against each other without the protective cartilage that is supposed to prevent direct contact. For such a deep source of pain, most heat therapy offers the valuable benefit of being able to reach the source of pain more quickly than dry heat therapy.

Moist heat therapy is also effective in treating pain and secondary muscle spasms that some patients report as a side effect of chronic arthritis.,

Other problems for which moist heat can be a good choice of therapy include Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness or DOMS (frequently experienced after exercise) and pain from back or neck muscle spasms. DOMS has proven surprisingly resistant to treatment using most other forms of therapy. However, heat therapy (and moist heat therapy in particular) turns out to be effective in relieving its pain and discomfort. In all of these situations, the ability of moist heat to quickly reach deep tissues is a valuable advantage.

While moist heat is a good choice in the above situations, it should not be considered when infection is present or if the injury is a fresh one. In those situations, ice therapy is a better alternative. It will slow down the metabolism and reduce any bleeding that may be present. If the injured area is sensitive to touch or the skin around it is hot and/or red, heat therapy is not a good choice.

Can Moist Heat Be Used to Treat Swelling?

Despite its many advantages, heat, whether moist or dry, is not a good choice to treat swelling. This is particularly true of swelling that arises in the immediate aftermath of an acute injury. In most situations, moist heat therapy will increase skin temperature and promote increased blood circulation, which will only make the swelling worse. Despite its many benefits, moist heat should be avoided whenever there is swelling or inflammation present.


Heat therapy is a safe and easy way to help alleviate and heal lower back pain. While there are many methods to relieve back pain, heat therapy is beneficial, inexpensive, and easy to do on your own! Among the many variations of heat therapy, moist heat therapy is the simplest and safest way to treat any discomfort you may feel. 

What is Moist Heat Therapy?

Moist heat therapy is a wet heat source used to heal sore or stiff muscles and provide pain relief. Once your skin tissue and muscles undergo this therapy, they loosen up which allows the tissue to become more flexible. This helps relieve stiffness and provide relief to any back pain you may be experiencing. Unlike dry heat therapy which may dehydrate your skin, moist heat therapy replenishes the moisture in your body, therefore preventing damage to the tissues. 

Types of Moist Heat Therapy

There are many ways in which you can experiment with different types of moist heat therapy. Here are a few simple ways that you can provide pain relief on your own:

  • Hot bath

  • Hot water bottles

  • Hot tub (a whirlpool jet may soothe the muscles even more by adding a massage feeling)

  • Moist heat packs

  • Steamed towels

Benefits of Heat Therapy

Any of the various methods of heat therapy will provide pain relief and help soothe sore muscles. However, moist heat therapy alleviates pain more efficiently than dry heat can and does so without dehydrating your skin tissue. Moist heat penetrates your skin deeper than dry heat does which relaxes your muscles, relieves stiffness, and improves circulation in less time. 


If one suffers from arthritis, anything that can help ease the stiffness and pain in the bones and joints is a welcome relief. While doctors suggest both heat and cold therapies to deal with the pain, heat therapy is more popular. Here is more about using heat therapy for arthritis.

What is Heat Therapy?

Heat therapy is an effective way of dealing with the pain caused by arthritis. One of the biggest benefits of heat therapy is that it is an inexpensive method of treating this problem. In this method, heat is applied on the affected joints, which can help relieve swelling, stiffness, and pain caused by arthritis. The heat helps in relaxing the muscles and improves the blood flow in the joints and the muscles. The best time for this therapy is during the morning as it can help loosen up an osteoarthritic knee. Often, heat therapy is used in combination with cold therapy to make it more effective but can be used by itself as well.


How it Works

Heat therapy stimulates the healing force of the body. Heat therapy can be administered in various ways. One may use dry heat, like heating lamps or pads, or moist heat, like heated wash clothes or warm baths. Here is how heat therapy works:

  • It dilates blood vessels in the body and stimulates blood circulation and the flow of nutrients and oxygen to the muscles. This helps reduce muscle spasms and helps repair damaged tissues.
  • It also reduces the transmission of pain signals to the brain, thereby helping change the sensation of pain.
  • The warmth helps improve joint flexibility as it enhances the pliability of the muscles and connective tissues.

Ideal Temperature and Duration for Heat Therapy

The main thing to ensure during heat therapy is that the temperature should be comfortable for the patient. It should neither be too low as then it would not be very effective, nor should it be too high, as then it may burn the skin. As for the duration, one needs to give it time to allow it to work. For the therapy to be effective, the heat should reach the affected muscles and tissues. If a session is too brief, it will end up only heating the skin. So, minor to moderate joint pains close to the skin would require 15-20 minutes of therapy, whereas deeper injuries in the lower back or hip would need at least 30 minutes.

How Often Should a Person Take Heat Therapy?

Moist heat packs used twice a day are said to be most effective. One may use them for 15 minutes before and after physical therapy. For an effective relief, a 5-10-minute heat massage should be applied to the affected area within the first 48 hours.

When Should a Person Refrain from Taking Heat Therapy?

There are a few circumstances where taking heat therapy is not suitable. Some of these circumstances are listed below:

  • If the joint bruised or swollen
  • If one is suffering from hypertension or heart problems
  • If one is pregnant (they should especially avoid spas and hot tubs)
  • If there is an open wound
  • If the person has skin problems like dermatitis
  • If the patient suffers from diabetes
  • If one has deep vein thrombosis
  • If the person has severe cognitive impairment
  • If the person suffers from peripheral vascular disease

Different Ways of Applying Heat to the Joint

Listed below are nine common methods of applying heat to an arthritic joint for the best results:

  • Hot Water Bottle

One of the most common methods is using a hot water bottle made of soft plastic or rubber. The water bottle is filled with hot water and applied on the joints. The water remains warm for up to 30 minutes.

  • Heated Gel Packs

Available at convenience stores, these packs need to be heated in hot water or in a microwave. Gel packs remain warm for at least 30 minutes.

  • Heat Patches

Heat patches are a very convenient option as they can be worn under the clothes with ease. These patches emit low-level heat for hours and are even available with pain-relieving ointments for better results.

  • Electric Heating Pad

If the affected area is large, like the back or the hips, using an electric heating pad is the ideal option. They can be plugged in and kept on the joint for 20-25 minutes. Heating pads have the ability to maintain a constant heat level.

  • Heated Dry Rice Pillow

A dry rice pillow is made with 100% cotton cloth and filled with dry white rice. The pillow has to be microwaved for 3 minutes after which it can be used for a 20-minute session.

  • A Hot Bath, Sauna, or Hot Tub

These are options that stimulate a sense of relaxation and comfort. It can help reduce pain and loosen joints. At times when a hot bath is not possible you can also use a hot shower.

  • Paraffin Bath

You need to plug it in to melt the paraffin wax. Once the wax has melted, you can dip your hands or feet in the bath several times till they are coated with the wax, then wrap them in a plastic bag for about 20 minutes to retain the heat. Before immersing your hands in the melted wax make sure to dip a finger and check the warmth. It should be warm and not scalding.

  • Dry Sauna

Often used for relaxation, the dry sauna can also be a good option for heat therapy. It helps in reducing muscle tension, stiffness, and joint pain.

  • Car Seat Warmer

A car seat warmer is a good choice for those who are suffering from arthritis in the back or hip. Using this method, one can apply gentle heat to the affected hips and spine.


What Are the Benefits of Moist Heat Therapy?

Moist heat therapy is a heat treatment that involves applying a moist heat to an affected area in order to bring about relief from the pains and aches caused by sports injury, tendon injury, muscle injury, muscle strain, sore muscles, and painful joints. It is also useful in treating conditions like arthritisbursitis and migraine. Thermotherapy helps to increase circulation, and this in turn can bring about relaxation in muscles, joints and soft tissue, leading to pain relief and, in some cases, speedy healing.

For instance, whether a pad or a shower is used to provide the moist heat, the temperature should be comfortably warm, not boiling hot. This ensures that there is no risk of burning the skin. The heat application should preferably be restricted to a duration of about 15 minutes or 30 minutes at the most, not longer. If more heat treatment is required, it should be carried out in intervals, allowing the skin, tissues and muscles to cool down in between. If there is a persistent redness in the skin, the treatment should be withheld for a while.

Heat relaxes the muscle and can make the joints more supple so that they move better and Provides Thermal insulation. It increases in temperature in turns increases vasodilatation. Increases metabolic rate and tissue extensibility thereby decreasing pain, muscle spasm, inflammation, edema and adhesions. Moist heat has more sedative effect then dry heat. And is more uniform than dry heating pads


  • This moisture thermo therapy is used for relieving pain, improving blood circulation, loosening stiff muscles.
  • Applied to rheumatism, inflammation of joints, neuralgia and muscle pains. Therapy with great comfort and easy to operate.   

  • What is Moist Heat Therapy?

    Moist heat therapy is a form of thermotherapy. It is essentially the same concept as cryotherapy, but using heat instead of cold. Thermotherapy is mainly used for pain relief and to stimulate circulation, but this application of heat also relaxes muscles and prevents muscle spasms. Moist heat means that the application of heat involves moisturized sources in order to keep the body from dehydrating and the targeted area from drying out, and provides a sense of muscle calming and relaxation.

    How Can Moist Heat Therapy Help?

    Moist heat packs are kept at specific temperatures for the sensation of “warmth” and not a burning heat. The packs are stored in a hot water hydrocollator tank until ready for application. Special towels or wraps cover the packs when being used, preventing the skin around the targeted area from getting too hot and keeping the packs from cooling off as quickly. Hot baths or vapor baths are also considered moist heat, and they are just as common as the moist heat pack.

    For injuries, illnesses, or symptoms represented by chronic pain, inflammation, tightened muscles, and muscle spasms, or if these are results of other issues, Activa Physical Therapy could very well give you the relief you need when dealing with these ailments or others.



    The benefits of heat therapy are undeniable and truly impressive. Heat therapy can relieve stiffness and improve circulation by opening blood vessels – relieving pain from arthritis, tennis elbow, sinus headaches, TMJ, aching feet, shoulder and back pain, and many more conditions! But how does moist heat compare to dry heat therapy? T here are many advantages to using moist heat therapy over traditional dry heat:


    Because water transfers heat better than air moist heat therapy delivers more heat directly to your skin without losing heat in the transfer process. The result of this greater heat transfer efficiency is that more of the heat makes its way deep into muscles, joints, ligaments and soft tissue. This deep muscle penetration is great for athletes; because blood flow and oxygen levels are increased the healing process is accelerated.



    Moist heat pads are able to relax and penetrate the muscle faster due to the wet heat. As the muscle heats up blood quickly rushes in and starts the healing process. People who use moist heat therapy report that they start feeling more relaxed faster each time they do the therapy and get better faster overall.


    Dry heat therapy tends to pull moister away from skin causing it to dry out. Think about what happens to your skin when it gets too hot inside your house – your skin gets dry and can crack if you do not apply moisturizing lotion. The same is true of heat therapy. Applying direct heat to your skin will leave your skin drier overtime. Moist heat therapy, on the other hand, doesn’t wick moister away from your body. Leaving your skin warmed without drying it out.


    While people using moist heat therapy tend to report that their pain symptoms are relived faster, they also report that on average the pain relief lasts longer- reducing the need to use heat therapy as often. People with chronic conditions like arthritis who use moist heat packs regularly tend to require moist heat therapy less often than when using dry heat therapy.Fewer applications are required due to the increase in blood flow and oxygen levels that allows quicker muscle and tendon healing.


    Injuries can be unavoidable, especially when “being active” is your motto. When you’re injured, it’s vital to choose the right type of therapies and treatment to ensure your body heals properly and quickly. The abundance of information available can make it difficult to determine the best type of treatment to help you recover as quickly as possible. The following article explores the use of heat therapy, in particular.

    Knowing when to apply heat therapy to your injury is critical to success. A common misconception is because heat “feels good”, it is enhancing healing. Just because heat feels good temporarily, does not mean that it is going to assist in healing the injured area. Improper application of heat therapy will assuredly worsen your condition and slow the healing process. To best know what kind of therapy and treatment method is the right fit for you, as well as how to apply the treatment, consult a Doctor of Physical Therapy who will walk you through the recovery process and provide specific instructions.


    • To increase your range of motion in a particular area
    • To relieve stiffness and tension in your tissues and joints
    • To improve the circulation of blood flow to an injured area

    Heat therapies are not all equal in application, duration, or effect. You’ll want to choose a specific therapy for your injury to maximize recovery time, while minimizing damage to the other tissues or joints.

    • Dry heat therapy (conductive heat): This type of superficial therapy works by placing the heat source directly on the injured area. Examples of dry heat therapy include the use of gel packs, heating pads, and saunas. A caveat with dry heat therapy is that it dehydrates the skin by pulling moisture out.
    • Moist heat therapy (convective heat): This type of superficial therapy works by immersing the injured area in a fluid, which is then heated. Examples of moist heat therapy include hot air baths, fluidotherapy, and whirlpools.
    • Conversion heat therapy: This type of therapy can be superficial or deep. The difference between the two types of heat therapies is that deep heat therapy treatments target deep tissues, like muscles; whereas superficial heat therapies do not. In conversion heat therapy, a form of energy (i.e. light) is being converted into another form (heat). An example of this type of conversion heat therapy include radiant heat therapy; although, it’s important to note that only photons with long waves penetrate superficially. Shorter photon wavelengths, while more therapeutic, are considered to be a deep heat therapy.
    • Alternative heat therapy: This type of therapy utilizes alternatives methods to provide heat to an injured area. Examples of naturopathic heat therapies include the use of pleoids (peat from bogs in bags), hay bags, and mustard packs.

    Each treatment is based on the type of therapy chosen and the type of injury sustained.

    • Local: This treatment is focused on the specific site of the injury, and it covers a relatively small area. Injuries where local treatment is beneficial include osteoarthritis, sprains, strains and knots in your muscle tissues. Smaller heat packs, Ultrasound and Laser treatments are particularly useful in these situations.
    • Regional: If you have soreness and stiffness over a larger part of the body, regional treatments will help to relieve pain and tension in not only the injured area, but the surrounding tissues as well. Examples of therapies used in regional treatments include larger heating pads, heating wraps, diathermy and radiant heat. Types of injuries that respond well to regional treatments include soreness from overexertion, menstrual pain, and restless leg syndrome.
    • Whole Body: This type of treatment is used when the whole body, and not just the injured area, is exposed to the therapy. Examples of therapies used during whole body treatments include saunas, hot baths, and jet whirlpools. If you have experienced whole body pain or rheumatic disorders, whole body treatments prove to be very beneficial.

    Duration of treatment is dependent on three major factors:

    1. Type of injury
    2. Length of time since the injury and your current inflammatory response
    3. Method of therapy applied

    Because heat encourages increased blood flow to the injured tissue, it can increase inflammation in recent injuries. If your injury is recent (occurring within the past 7 days or less), heat is not the recommended therapy, and ice may be the best option. In the event you have stiffness and tension in your body, it is ideal to choose a regional or whole body treatment and apply the heat source for 15-30 minutes, always letting comfort guide. If you are treating moderate to severe pain, it is more ideal to choose a local or regional treatment and apply the heat source for approximately 30 minutes, depending on your specific type of injury and what your Doctor of Physical Therapy recommends.

    It’s imperative to keep in mind that certain heat treatments, such as heating pads, should be monitored closely while in use because if they are left on the body for too long or used improperly, they can cause serious burns. If in doubt, cut the heat out.

    More important than choosing which type of heat therapy to use is knowing when not to use heat therapy due to medical reasons. Discussed below is a large sample of situations in which you should avoid using heat therapy before consulting with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. The following is not an exhaustive list, but contains major factors to consider when using heat as a therapy.

    • Hypersensitivity to heat – too painful.
    • Hyposensitivity to heat or if you cannot feel if the heat source is too hot – This could cause severe burns if the heat isn’t modified.
    • Malignant tumors – Heat increases blood flow to an area which is not indicated in this case.
    • Swelling or bruising in the area – Cold therapy treatment may be considered instead.
    • Directly post-surgery or if there is an open wound – Post-surgical sites and open wounds should generally be kept dry.
    • Dermatitis – Heat could aggravate the condition.
    • Diabetes – People with diabetes tend to overheat and become dehydrated quicker than those without, and insulin breaks down rapidly in heat.
    • Vascular disease – Heat causes the arteries to expand, causing increased blood flow to the area.
    • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) – Heat will increase blood flow to the area it is applied to, aggravating the thrombus.
    • Multiple sclerosis (MS) – Heat causes worsening of symptoms (such as blurred vision). These symptoms commonly will reverse when the heat is removed. It does not cause increased demyelation of nerves.

    As always, you should consult your Doctor of Physical Therapy if you wonder if you need physical therapy or heat treatment, as well as being upfront about your full medical history to your physical therapist to ensure you are getting the care you need to relieve your pain and tension while keeping you safe.

Our highly skilled doctors can help you explore your options of using either superficial or deep heat therapy in conjunction with other complimenting treatments.


    Moist Heat Therapy

    A Family Practice and Wellness Center uses moist heat therapy along with chiropractic care and physical therapy to treat injuries, pain, and chronic illness. There are different types of moist heat therapy that are used to treat pain in the body. It can be used on the back, neck, shoulders, arms, and legs after chiropractic care or physical therapy to relieve pain.

    The Benefits of Moist Heat Therapy

    The benefits of moist heat therapy are increased blood flow to the areas being treated. It reduces pain after physical therapy or chiropractic care and shortens the healing process. Moist heat is used primarily to manage chronic pain from illness or injuries. Some types of moist heat therapy can be done at home after the chiropractor or therapist shows patients how to apply the technique. It is often use in conjunction with other type of treatments or therapies. This type of heat therapy penetrates the skin deeper to relieve pain in muscles and ligaments. It relaxes muscles, relieves pain, and does not dry out surrounding tissues.

    Types of Moist Heat Therapy In Cartersville

    Hot water bottles are sometimes used for moist heat therapy for smaller areas and there are larger water bottles that have been designed for larger areas like the back, shoulders stomach, arms, and legs. They can be heated in special equipment and used for 30 to 90 minutes or more. Often, we use this technique for moist heat therapy for chiropractic or physical therapy. Our chiropractor may suggest buying a special hot water bottle to use at home and show you how to use it.  This is one of the moist heat therapy options.

    Moist heat packs used for pain after physical therapy are often made of a material covered in canvas. They are stored in hot water and placed in hot towels or special wraps to prevent burning. It prevents them from cooling off too quickly so that you benefit from the moist heat therapy. This is a safe clean way to apply moist heat packs. Heat reduces muscle spasm and increases blood flow. It relaxes muscles and soft tissue, and this increases mobility. We sometimes use hot towels that are heated to the right temperature by our therapists.


    Hydrocollator Packs Heat Therapy for Massage

    Stiff neck? Tight quads? Nagging muscle or joint pain? We’ve got you covered!

    Come on down to our student clinic for some Moist Heat Therapy followed by a therapeutic massage performed by one of our students. We teach our students how to use Hydrocollator Packs in their massage sessions.  For centuries, the ability of heat to increase blood flow and ease the sensation of pain has had an important role in supporting the healing process. It’s a way to increase flexibility and range of motion, as well as to promote increased circulation and to prepare the tissues for rehabilitation.

    Hydrocollator Packs are a combination of bentonite clay and other natural fillings. These bentonite clay packs applied externally are used to alleviate inflammatory pain, joint pain, arthritis, congestion, bruised tissue, and strains. They prepare tense areas for deep tissue, reduce muscle spasm, and are very therapeutic following muscle soreness from physical activity. Hydrocollator packs are more effective for treating pain than electrical pads because moist heat relaxes muscles and nerves without drawing up moisture from the skin, so the affected area stays hydrated – this is important for a faster healing process. Hydrocollator packs increase blood flow by enlarging blood vessels below the surface relaxing the tissue, decreasing pain, and stimulating the healing process. Increasing circulation and relaxing muscles are not only helpful before a massage, but it’s also very beneficial before chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, and therapeutic exercises as well. Athletes with chronic pain or overuse injuries may use this heat therapy before exercise to increase the elasticity of joint connective tissues and to stimulate blood flow.

    Because heat increases circulation and raises skin temperature, you should not apply it to acute injuries or injuries that show signs of inflammation. To be beneficial, heat should not be applied until the capillaries have had a chance to seal and stop leaking, usually 48 hours following an injury. In order to safely apply heat, first, wrap the pack in 3 towels before applying it to the body for 15-20 minutes at a time – this protects the body from overheating and from any irritation that can occur. As yummy as heat can be, be sure not to apply it after exercise or on an acute injury as it could worsen the symptoms.  Heat therapy is an easy and inexpensive option to provide relief from many forms of pain – combined with massage it’s an absolute lifesaver!!
