Can anyone tell me when should we give hot fomentation and when should we give cold fomentation?
Immediately after an injury - Cold fomentation.
Later on - Hot fomentation.
Cold is for acute injuries like sprains, joint injuries, sports injuries.
Hot is more for chronic conditions like back aches, muscle spasms.
The point is after an acute injury, you need to reduce the swelling and inflammation. So you cool the area to decrease blood flow.
After a day of injury, you would want to increase blood flow to heal the area.
