Is hot water a good treatment for a neck injury?


Answer by  chris70 (301)

Neck injuries can be very serious so if you think its serious please go to a doctor. If the injury is more of light sprain, kink, soreness or ache type then possibly a hot bath or using a hot tub could relax the muscles for comfort. Some people use heating pads as well for releif.

First - of course! - make sure that you have seen a qualified medical professional. Then altering heat and cold therapy can work wonders. If the injury is new, cold is best; if it's over 24 hours old, heat can be used. When using the cold, make sure you have something between your skin and the ice pack to prevent frostbite.

Some neck injuries can be treated with hot water, either by soaking in a tub, or by applying a towel soked in hot water to the injured area. However, hot water is a best a temporary treatment for most neck injuries. A better treatment may be the use of a pain relieving drug.

No,it is not a good treatment for neck injury. The hot water will increase pain as the heat will trigger the cells death. If it is a sprain use only ice water to sooth the pain. More over neck is an importent part and needs extra care. So get help from a doctor instead of treating the injury yourself.
