REVIEW ON THE BEST HEAT PAD FOR NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN…

I have written before on heat pads for pain as I prefer heat to cold especially for the neck and shoulder.

My sister came to stay with me recently and unfortunately woke up one morning with really bad Neuralgia. She could hardly move her neck and she was sure the pain was coming from a nasty shoulder injury she has.

I immediately popped my neck and shoulder cushion from Pain Relief Cushions in the microwave and kept repeating the heat throughout the day. It wasn’t long before she could feel the benefit from the heat and the neck pain started to ease.

Like myself, I am sure other Fibromyalgia sufferers suffer from intermittent bouts of neck pain ( fibrocitis back in the day) which suddenly arrives for no reason whatsoever.

You can have the cushions filled with or without lavender and they have a five star rating on the Pain Relief Cushions website. The Soothing Shoulder Wheat Cushion is ideally suited to ease pain in the neck, shoulders and higher back areas. Perfectly weighted so that it stays in place, allowing the user to fully relax, whilst absorbing the scent of Lavender. This wheat bag measures Approx. 12.5″ x 8.5″.

They cost £21.99 but they have an offer on at the moment of 10% off the long cushion only via their e-store Current price £18.90 plus UK P&P £3.99 for one cushion 2 £5.99 p&p. This offer will be available until the end of March.

HOW TO PREVENT BACK PAIN WHEN DRIVING…

The Foray Motor Group have written some of the best tips on how to prevent back pain when driving. It includes some of my own tips and others from Back on site, and Active Backs.

The main top tips include :

Tips for avoiding back pain while driving

  • Make sure your car is road worthy
  • Adjust your sitting position
  • Utilise lumbar support
  • Use heated seats
  • Be careful getting in and out of the car
  • Ice your back
  • Take regular breaks

“If your car happens to have heated seats, it’s definitely a good idea to make good use of them in your quest to prevent back pain. Heat has the great benefit of relaxing tight joints and muscles, helping blood flow to the area applied to, and therefore relieving pain. So next time you are out on a long drive and perhaps are starting to feel a little uncomfortable, consider turning that seat on. Barbara McLullich from Back Pain Blog – the personal journey of a chronic back pain sufferer – offers this advice: “I am a true advocate of heat while travelling so if your car does not have heated seats then buy a heat pad to pop on your back. You can buy these from a chemist and most last up to eight hours. Also, have some heat pads ready to use after your journey.”

Be careful getting in and out of the car

Another important thing to consider is the simple fact of how you get in and out of the car as this can have ramifications for your back health. Explaining what to be aware of and how you can help yourself, Barbara from Back Pain Blog says: “Pay attention to how you get in and out of the car. Sit down facing the door and swing both legs into the car. Getting out is the reverse. If this is too uncomfortable to do, you can buy swivel cushions to help you turn around.”
