You should go for hot fomentation.
The temperature increases on being given hot fomentations. This causes an increase in the blood flow in the body of the person affected. The increased blood flow causes the transport of nutrients from the other parts of the body to the wounded site and so helps in increasing the rate of healing. The increased blood supply to the injured part also helps in removing all the debris from the affected area.
fomentations are used in following circumstances.
1. Acute injury like sports injury
or acute sprains etc: Immediately after an injury cold fomentation or ice can be kept over the area to prevent internal bleeding
. The cold also helps to decrease the amount of blood lost.
2. Arthritis: Certain arthritic pains can be treated with application of cold therapy.
