All About Heating Pads for Back Pain

Even if it's only temporary, back pain can take a serious toll on your quality of life. It can make it difficult for you to perform everyday tasks and enjoy the things you once loved. While there are many conservative treatments for back pain, one of the most common is heat therapy. Believe it or not, heat therapy has been around since ancient times when the Egyptians and Greeks would use it for pain.

Fortunately, you don't have to spend hours upon hours in the sun for back pain relief through heat therapy. These days, over-the-counter heating pads are available online and in stores. They bring ease and convenience to heat therapy.

Why Heating Pads

The main reason heating pads and heat therapy are so effective for back pain is because they increase circulation. When this happens, oxygen and nutrients make their way to the muscles and joints. Not only can better circulation resolve muscle damage, it can also relieve back stiffness and inflammation.

Although any type of heat has the potential to improve back pain, heating pads are likely the most convenient option. In addition to their portability, heating pads are electric, making them ideal for use just anywhere in your home.

While hot baths may ease your back pain as well, they do come with a caveat. It can be a real challenge to maintain the hot water temperature as the water will gradually cool down and lose its effectiveness. Heating pads resolve this problem because they provide heat flow continuously. As long as you keep them on, they can work their magic.


Comment from a long serving customer

"I can tell you this almost for sure and that is, as long as you guys continue making these best ever heating pads I will continue to order them. I am a paraplegic with a lot of nerve pain and spasms that can be unbearable but at least with your heat packs I get some relief. On top of that I have two forms of sleep apnea and must go on a servo ventilator at night so I’m going to try your new sleep set!! Thanks! It’s that old personal touch that you add like my dad had in his drug stores. I didn’t think it was possible but your fast personal replies are giving me reason to believe that the internet doesn’t have to be without the “older” fashioned “ personal approach. Keep up the good work!!

Heat Therapy

The sports therapy wrap is the  most effective heat therapy product that can maintain it's heat at the proper temperature. "Warm" is the proper temperature. Perfect for back pain relief.

In many instances, the longer the heat is applied, the better.This where the sports therapy wrap will pay dividends with it's long lasting heat. The duration that one needs to apply the heat, though, is based on the type of and/or magnitude of the injury. For very minor back tension, short amounts of heat therapy may be sufficient (such as 15 to 20 minutes). For more intense injuries, longer sessions of heat may be more beneficial (such as 30 minutes to 2 hours, or more).

The Body Wrap can also be used hot or cold depending on what therapy is required.

Recent studies have found that heat wrap therapy proved to be more effective at treating lower back pain than oral pain medications such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen.

Warm Buddy heat wraps are proudly made in Canada.

Heat therapy application can help provide lower back pain relief through several mechanisms:

  • Heat therapy dilates the blood vessels of the muscles surrounding the lumbar spine. This process increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, helping to heal the damaged tissue.
  • Heat stimulates the sensory receptors in the skin, which means that applying heat to the lower back will decrease transmissions of pain signals to the brain and partially relieve the discomfort.

Warm and Cold Therapy

For both these therapies it is always handy to have 2 heat packs available for immediate applications , one for warmth and the other to keep in the freezer for cold therapy applications..These are perfect means to manage pain without the need for over the counter medication.

How Heat Therapy Works

Many episodes of lower back muscle strain result from strains and over-exertions, creating tension in the muscles and soft tissues around the lower spine. As a result, this restricts proper circulation and sends pain signals to the brain.

Muscle spasm in the lower back can create sensations that may range from mild discomfort to excruciating lower back pain. Heat therapy can help relieve pain from the muscle spasm and related tightness and lower back  pain relief.

Using one of our heat packs will help you relieve lower back pain and muscle tension.

Heat therapy application can help provide lower back pain relief through several mechanisms:

  • Heat therapy dilates the blood vessels of the muscles surrounding the lumbar spine. This process increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, helping to heal the damaged tissue.
  • Heat stimulates the sensory receptors in the skin, which means that applying heat to the lower back will decrease transmissions of pain signals to the brain and partially relieve the discomfort.
  • Heat application facilitates stretching the soft tissues around the spine, including muscles, connective tissue, and adhesion's. Consequently, with heat therapy, there will be a decrease in stiffness as well as injury, with an increase in flexibility and overall feeling of comfort. Flexibility is very important for a healthy back.

How cold therapy Works to Relieve Pain

Cold therapy  can help provide relief for back pain in a number of ways:

Keep a Warm Buddy heat pack in your freezer for these applications:

  • Cold therapy application slows the inflammation and swelling that occurs after injury. Most back pain is accompanied by some type of inflammation, and addressing the inflammation helps reduce the pain
  • Cold therapy  numbs sore tissues (providing pain relief similar to a local anesthetic)
  • Cold therapy  application slows the nerve impulses in the area, which interrupts the pain-spasm reaction between the nerves
  • Cold therapy  decreases tissue damage
  • The massage adds the beneficial effects of gentle manipulation of the soft tissues

Cold therapy  is most effective if it is applied as soon as possible after the injury occurs, usually within 24 to 48 hours. The cold makes the veins in the tissues contract, reducing circulation. Once the cold is removed, the veins overcompensate and dilate and blood rushes into the area. The infusion of blood in the area brings with it the necessary nutrients to help the injured back muscles, ligaments and tendons to heal.

Therapies on how to treat lower back pain

  • Warm therapy for aches and pains
  • Cold therapy  for fresh injuries and swelling
  • Turmeric: Throughout history, our ancestors have relied on numerous herbs and spices, not only for cooking but for their powerful healing properties. Few have survived the test of time quite like turmeric, arguably the most well-studied dietary supplement in modern natural medicine.

Does a heat pad help period cramps?

But it turns out that science supports heat as an effective treatment for the pain. When you apply heat to the lower abdomen or lower back, uterine contractions are relaxed, which in turn means less pain. Additionally, a 2018 research review noted that heat increases blood flow, which can also reduce pain.
