Every little bit of heat for someone in pain can go a long way to help ease the pain. Many sufferers do not know what is available to help ease some of their pains so I have put together a few examples here.
With the temperatures already sliding down, any kind of warming aids will help to keep you cosy and warm.
Why does heat help with pain? Heat boosts the flow of blood and nutrients to an area of the body. It often works best for morning stiffness or to warm up muscles before activity. It can assist the healing process and alleviate some of your pain. Additionally, some arthritis pain from stiff joints can benefit from heat as blood flow increases. Heat can also help loosen muscles when tension headaches strike.

When you ‘click’ and bend the metal disc inside the pad, it heats the whole Heat Pad in seconds, with no other power source required.
