12 Best Heating Pads to Help Soothe Sore Muscles

Many people ask, "Should I use heat or ice?". The answer really depends on what kind of issue you are having. If it is more of a joint or nerve issue, the recommendation is ice. However, if you feel that your muscles are tight, then the recommendation is heat.

Heat helps improve blood flow and circulation to soft tissues, allowing them to heal by getting more oxygenated blood to the area.

Read more about the use of heat and recommendations for heating pads in Dr. Marko's new guest feature in Prevention.
