1. Hot/Cold Therapy
A combination of hot and cold therapy may help alleviate symptoms of pain and swelling.
Heat can help ease your pain and relax painful, tense muscles to spurs blood flow. You can use a moist heating pad, a warm and damp towel or a microwavable pack. For the time poor folks, you can use heat therapy in the shower. Simply let the warm water hit the painful area on your body, and this may help soothe it.
