heat for stifle?

Okay so an old injury has been bugging my Qh he got an deep bone bruise from another horse close to his stifle and after 3.5 years its really bugging him. We ordered MSM for him and it will take a while -_- but I was wondering if a heat pack will help him?

Won't hurt, try absorbine full strength, it's used all the time at the race track, I used a white liniment on my horse when he pulled his stifle as a 3yr. Old and put him on stall rest for 6 mos. And the race horse guy's said if it wasn't better, they would pull it back into place. Have you had a vet check it?

Not yet he goes in to them in a few months to get shots and coggins, we had his Xrays transfered to our new vet.
