Apply heat therapy.
When your muscles are sore, arguably nothing feels better than relaxing in a warm bath or lying against a heating pad. Turns out, there's a scientific reason that warmth is so refreshing.
When you apply heat to an area, it stimulates the blood to flow quicker to that part of your body. That means when you apply a warm neck wrap, you're actually telling your body that you need more blood in that specific area.
In response, your body focuses its internal efforts on targeting and relieving that pain point.
If you're in the office and soaking your tired feet in a warm epsom salt bath or hooking up an electric blanket isn't exactly feasible, try a stick-on heat patch. These days, most are designed to be thin enough to be worn under almost all clothing, and the relief can last for hours.
Keep in mind there are some conditions
in which heat will exacerbate your discomfort. If you have an exposed wound, infection, or other fresh injury, steer clear. The same goes for other types of acute inflammation, such as arthritis. Consult your doctor for your guaranteed best course of action, but ice packs are usually preferred in these cases.
