Heat therapy -the conductive method, Physics

 The conductive method


Heat can be transferred by conduction from warmer to cooler objects, the quantity of heat transfer depends on the temperature difference between the two objects, the time of contact, the area of contact, and the thermal conductivity of the materials. Heating can be  done by several ways such as hot bath, hot packs and electric heating pad . This can lead to local surfaceheating and used in the treatment of arthritis, neuritis, strains, sinusitis and back pain.
