Paraffin bath therapy is used in treating individuals with a variety of musculoskeletal issues of the hands, ankles, feet, and even elbows. As a superficial conduction heat modality, paraffin bath has proven to be an effective intervention to help modulate pathological related pain in hand and foot joints (Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, post-traumatic injury stiffness, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.), relax associated musculature, an effective warm-up in preparation for joint mobilization and therapeutic exercise of injured joints, and assisting in efforts to maintain muscle strength through tolerated exercise. It is also used to effectively moisturize dry and cracked skin
