Wheat Bags Can Help With Abdominal Cramps
Not only do wheat bags keep you warm in the winter and help those common injuries related to muscular aches and pains.
Wheat bags can also help women with abdominal cramps and discomfort during menstruation.
Heat has a long history as an effective, cheap, painless, drugless form of therapy.
Most women know how uncomfortable it can be during “that time of the month”….
To help ease some of that pain, heat can be placed on either the lower stomach or lower back to reduce the symptoms of menstrual cramps by increasing blood flow to the area, relieving muscle tension and joint stiffness and hopefully providing relief!
Wheat bags are commonly used to treat muscle pain (if you have ongoing pain you should visit your GP or your Physiotherapist).
At our Morphett Vale Physio practice, Core Physio stock “Flex-Heat bags” in a range of colours and 2 different sizes
- The standard 17cm x 33cm $22
- The XL 17cm x 57cm $35
These wheat bags are filled with 100% Australian Lupin Seeds.
Lupin seed is a light round pod, with superior heating qualities when compared to other grain fillings. It is a clean natural seed which produces no dust.
