Best Heat Pads for Neck Pain

Tuesday, 23 October 2018

Neck pain can be caused by all sorts of things – from sitting at your desk all day to sleeping in an awkward position at night. Whatever the cause, neck pain can be extremely debilitating, making every facet of your life more difficult, so it's important to get it sorted out right away. At Health and Care, we stock a range of heating pads that are specially designed to tackle stiffness and pain in your neck, so if you're at your wit's end with neck pain, you're in the right place.

Neck pain can be treated with a range of heat pads for the neck
One of the best ways to instantly relieve neck pain is to apply targeted soothing heat to the area

About Neck Pain

While heat therapy is usually the most effective way to instantly relieve your neck pain and stiffness, there are some other effective methods that you can try beforehand. Here are our top tips for neck pain relief:

  1. Try using an anti-inflammatory medication, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen to lessen the pain
  2. Use a low, firm pillow while sleeping that fills the head-shoulder gap
  3. Ensure your head is at the same height as the rest of your body when sleeping
  4. Make a conscious effort to sit with better posture during the day (shoulders and neck back)
  5. Avoid sleeping on your front, as this can cause awkward twisting of the neck
  6. If all else fails, use a heat pad for instant relief

Best Electric Heat Pad for Neck Pain

Hot water bottles have dominated the world of soothing heat for years, but this old world method can be messy, clumsy, and won't hold its heat for long. Electric pads are the natural solution, as they can be tailored for each body part, and won't lose their heat until you turn them off.

Beurer Shoulder and Neck Heat Pad HK54

The Beurer Shoulder and Neck Heat Pad HK54 is designed to comfortably fit around your neck, and is covered with a soft, cosy fleece lining for extra heat retention and comfort. With different heat settings that range from 50°C to 75°C, you can customise your relief to your needs and comfort, while a magnet closure ensure the pad is secure and easy to apply for soothing heat whenever you need it.

Key Features: Soft, breathable fleece lining with three heat settings

Moist Heat Therapy for Deep Muscle Relief

Standard heating pads can provide effective heat therapy to ailing muscles, but for the most soothing relief, moist heat is the best option. Moist heat therapy allows the heat from your pad to penetrate deep into your tissue, providing instant relief for your skin and muscles.
