2. Soothe Back Pain
If you experience regular back pain then a hot water bottle is a really good investment for you. According to Lauri Grossman, DO, a licensed chiropractor and the founder of the Department of Homeopathic Medicine at New York University, using hot and cold therapy can help ease back pain. She explains “cold therapy (applied via an ice pack) works better for inflammation and helps to reduce swelling, while heat (via a hot water bottle or heating pad) is ideal for reducing cramping and muscle spasms.”
