Hot and cold compresses can totally change the way you look at pain and manage it wisely. Here’s how.
If we keep treadmill fitness aside for new year resolutions, the definition of being fit for any adult, an urbanite or a person with a busy lifestyle could be as simple as taking a few hasty paces to board a bus, being able to pick up a little one to play with, or maybe completing a daily chore at home without any physical discomfort.
But with age or injury, our body responses dim down or become slower and tempered. To complicate things further, today stress has also become an integral part of our lifestyle. The end result being, not just living with physical discomforts such as joint pains and body aches, but mental and emotional anxiety too.
