Heating Pad

La Naturess Heating Pad is designed with high-quality natural cotton and filled with 100% Himalayan Salt crystals. Salt Heat therapy is in use as a traditional natural remedy for pain relief since ancient times. Himalayan salt has a low-temperature point, which means it can hold any hot and cold temperatures evenly. When heat pad gets heated in the microwave, the salt crystal absorbs the heat and keep the heat pad warm for an extended period.

Likewise, the heat-pad is also used for cold therapy. It is one of the most common treatments for ache and inflammation after injuries. The therapy is especially useful for sprains, strains, and pulled muscles or ligaments. The heating pad in the microwave is used mainly for heat therapy. However, can also be chilled in the freezer for cold therapy. The Himalayan salt pad is one of the best non-electric heating pad in the market and features negative ions which penetrates heat deep into the body for about 3 inches below the skin.

Microwavable Heating Pad for Heat Therapy:

The microwavable heating pad uses the moist treatment which is considered to be most effective for deep penetration of heat into the muscles and provide a better comfort. Unlike dry heat which draws out moisture from the skin and leaves you dehydrated. The moist heating pad absorbs the warmth and releases the retained moisture on your skin.

Heating Pad for Cold Therapy:

The cold pack is significant in cases of swollen muscles, joints, and inflammation. Ice is a recommended treatment for acute injuries. However, it should not be applied to chronic injuries. Cold assists to reduce the injured area temperature and prevent the distress and ache from getting worst. Inflammation is limited with cold therapy, and in any case, the heat will make it more severe if applied right after an injury.

How Heating Pads Work:

When the heat gets placed on your skin, it decreases the sensation of pain. Heat stimulates thermoreceptors, which block your body’s pain transmitters from sending pain signals to your brain.
The heating pad increases circulation to the injured or sore area, and help more oxygen and nutrients get to the damaged tissue.
The Heating pad helps stretch soft tissues and relax sore muscles, therefore, promotes flexibility and decreases stiffness.

Heating Pad for Back:

Back PainBack pain is one of the most common discomforts experienced by almost every individual at some point in their life. The most affected area of the spine is neck pain, lower back pain, upper back pain, and tailbone area (Coccydynia). Muscle spasm is the reason for discomfort sensations and many episodes of lower back muscle strain. Besides, lower back pain results from strains and over-exertion create tension in the muscles and soft tissues around the lower spine. Different causes trigger backaches such as trauma, fractures, infections, injury to spinal muscles and ligaments, herniated disks, osteoporosis, and joints ache. Back is a very delicate area in a human body, and even the slightest injury can cause significant pain. In most cases, the hurt disappears naturally after few weeks. But in other cases, it is considered severe back pain, underlying serious medical condition.

For some people, surgery is the quickest way to manage a backache. However, for a majority, the goal is to keep the discomfort and hurt manageable with non-surgical therapies and rehabilitation, which can lead to a long-term relief.

Acupuncture, massage, and the heating pad for back pain are some of the nonmedical pain management therapies. Heat therapy is beneficial to reduce the back spasms and lower back pain. Heat pads with the therapeutic effects of heat therapy decrease muscle stiffness, joint ache, inflammation, and boost blood flow to the injured area. The primary objective of the heat-pad is to expand the blood capillaries which allow more blood flow and provide ease.

Back Pain During Pregnancy:

Pregnancy Back PainLower back pain during pregnancy is a common problem seen in pregnant women and can get worse as the baby grows, although it can be experienced at any point in pregnancy. The prevalence varies as per US National Library of Medicine reports showing almost 50 to 70% of pregnant women experience back pain.

The back pain typically happens where the pelvis meets the spine, at the sacroiliac joint. However, other factors contribute to the symptoms of lower back pain during pregnancy including, weight gain, hormone changes, muscle separation, stress and posture changes.

Women who are overweight and had back pain before the pregnancy is at more risk. During a healthy pregnancy, women tend to gain between 25 to 35 pounds. The additional weight added is supported by your spine which can cause lower backache. Furthermore, the weight of a growing baby and uterus can also put pressure on the blood vessels and nerves in the pelvis area. Eventually, as the baby grows the center of gravity will be shifted forward which applies more pressure on the spine and lead to a backache. When the baby grows, women will unknowingly adjust their posture and the way they move, which can put a strain on their back. During pregnancy, the body will have hormonal changes especially when it comes to the hormone relaxin, it allows ligaments in the pelvic area to relax and the joints to loosen up in preparation for the birth process. That same hormone can cause ligaments that support the spine to loosen, which can lead to instability and discomfort.

As the uterus expands throughout pregnancy, the rectal abdominal muscles which are two parallel sheets of muscles and run from the rib cage to the pubic bone can separate along the center seam. And this can worsen back pain. Pregnancy can be a stressful time for women, and there is a lot of strain on the emotional, mental and physical stability of the body as the baby grows within. The added stress causes muscle tension in the back which can feel like spasms from time to time and increase the hurt in the back.

Back pain during pregnancy may not be entirely preventable, but some things can be done to minimize the pain:

  • Exercises approved by your health care provider which can help support the spine and abdomen.
  • Make sure never to bend over, instead of squat when picking up anything.
  • Elevating feet is also useful for the back as it reduces the pressure applied to the lower back and give it a good rest.
  • Sleep on the left side while using a support pillow under the knees to reduce the strain in the back.
  • Consult a massage therapist or chiropractor to help relax the tensed muscles in the spine.
  • Apply heat and cold to the sore area for up to 20 minutes for several times a day. Be careful not to apply the heat directly on the abdomen. Heat aids with relaxing muscles around the spine and limits the sore sensation in the back.

Knee PainKnee pain hits people of all ages and mostly caused by injuries, types of arthritis, and different mechanical problems. Knee pain symptoms vary, depending on the severity and causes of the problem. People take self-care measures to control the minor knee pain in the form of knee braces and other physical therapies. However, some significant medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, joint damage, and dislocated kneecap are left untreated. Due to the continuous increasing ache in critical conditions, many turn to alternative long-term pain relief.

Neck Heating Pad

Neck PainNeck pain is one of the most common problems experienced by almost two-thirds of the population. As per 2010 statistics, approximately 5% of the global population suffers from neck pain. There are numerous causes for neck pain; although the discomfort is felt in the neck, it can be triggered by other spinal problems. Lower back and upper back supports the neck structure, and if any of these support systems are affected, then it will tighten the muscles around the neck, which can lead to a hurting neck.

  • Correct your posture, learn to sleep on the back and align your body, head, and neck in a comfortable position.
  • Heating pad for neck is used for hot and cold therapy which works as an anti-inflammatory that reduces swelling. Ice or cold pack is better to heal the neck ache as it helps to close the blood vessels temporarily and prevent swelling from becoming worst.
