Everyone loves a hot summer’s day. Well, most everyone, anyways. But seriously, how can you beat the feeling of the sun’s warm rays washing over you, warming you to your core? For me, it’s one of the best feelings in the world. But did you know that heat not only feels good, it has tremendous healing properties as well.
You probably already know that heat is an effective treatment for relieving back pain. And heating pads are an excellent tool that can deliver heat to the body. However, it’s important to educate yourself about heating pads. Not all heating pads are created equal so let’s take a look.
Traditional Heating Pad for Back Pain
Ordinary electric heating pads that you can get from the local pharmacy store are slow to heat up and do no more than warm the skin on the back. The heat from a traditional electrical heating pads penetrate a mere 2-3 mm. The heat never reaches your muscles, tissue or organs. The small benefit you may have received during use disappears as soon as the heating pad is shut off.
Far Infrared Heating Pad for Back Pain
Unlike traditional electric heating pads which only provide heat to the skin of the body, Far infrared heat penetrates past the skin, deep into the muscles, tissues and organs providing healing back pain relief. Before we go on, it’s important to understand what Far Infrared heat is.
Far infrared heat waves are a 100% safe form of light energy and are capable of penetrating deep into the body. There they are able to slowly and gently raise the surface temperature of the body which activates important bodily functions. It is so safe in fact, that Far Infrared heat is used in many neonatal units.
Far infrared heating pad utilizes polished jade stones to deliver the healing benefits of FIR heat energy to the body. When far infrared waves penetrate through the skin it turns from light energy into heat energy. A thermal effect takes place within the layers of tissues and muscles causes capillaries to dilate which promotes healing and while improving blood circulation.
