Far-infrared heat induced vasodilatation for fibromyalgia pain relief.

Pain may be relieved via the reduction of attendant or secondary muscle spasms.

Pain is also at times related to ischemia due to tension or spasm which can be improved by the
hyperthermia that heat-induced vasodilatation produces, thus breaking the feedback loop, in
which the ischemia leads to further spasm and then more pain. Heat has been shown to reduce
pain sensation by direct action on both free-nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves.

In one dental study, repeated heat applications led both to abolishment of the whole nerve
responsible for pain arising from dental pulp. Heat may lead to increased endorphin production
and a shutting down (of Melzach and Wall,)(so-called "spinal gate") each of which can reduce
pain.
