Application of Far Infrared Heat reduces the viscosity of the collagen in spasmed muscles and encourages production of new collagen. Collagen is the most common protein found in the body. It is found in bone, cartilage, tendon, ligaments, skin, and the sheath covering the muscles.  By lowering the viscosity of the collagen, muscles and tendons soften, relax and stretch easier. This mechanism is responsible for reduction of muscle cramps and painful stiff joints in patients with arthritis.
