Beurer Heating Pads: Which Is Right for Me?

Monday, 25 March 2019  |  Paul

Electric heating pads have been making their way into mainstream use for years, and if you're considering trying out this simple and effective heat therapy method yourself, this article is a great place to start. Beurer heating products are known for being of the highest quality, safe to use, highly efficient, and very affordable. To help you find just the right heating pad for your needs, we've put together a comprehensive guide that includes everything you need to know to make an informed decision.

Why Should I Use a Heating Pad?

Before we dig deep into which heating pad is most suitable for you, it's important to decide whether or not you actually want to start using one. In our experience, just considering getting a heating pad is usually a sign you most definitely need it.

Heat therapy, is one of the simplest, least expensive and most efficient ways to soothe strained muscles, relieve pain and decompress after a long day. Using a heating pad can have numerous positive effects on your body and overall health, but mostly it's an excellent way to:

  • Increase blood circulation to relieve fatigue
  • Decrease joint stiffness
  • Reduce pain and inflammation
  • Relieve muscle soreness
  • Heal injuries
  • Ease stress and tension
  • Relieve pain caused by medical conditions such as osteoporosis, spondylolysis, or disk herniation

When Is the Best Time To Be Using a Heating Pad?

Applying heat to your body increases blood flow and causes connective tissue to become more flexible. This is why hot stones, hot springs and volcanic hot air caverns have been used for thousands of years to relieve people from stress and pain, and soothe their overworked muscles.

Taking a hot bath can have a similar effect on your tired body, but it's not the most practical solution. With a heating pad, you can enjoy the benefits of heat therapy any time of the day, regardless of where you are.

Are There Any Downsides I Should Know About?

When you're using an electric heating pad, it's important to be careful when applying it directly to the hands, feet, neck, shoulder and nape, as it can overheat quite quickly. Our Beurer heating pads, however, come equipped with the Beurer Safety System, which provides protection against overheating across the entire surface of the heating pad, and has an automatic switch-off function in the event of a fault.

A heating pad is a harmless solution that can help you relive pain and enjoy comforting warmth whenever you want it. It's important to be aware, however, that in case of a serious illness using a heating pad is only a temporary solution. If the pain persists, you should see a doctor or a medical professional.

How Do I Know Which Heating Pad Is Best for Me?

There is virtually an endless choice of heating pads available out there, but this is one of those products where it's a good idea to invest in a brand you trust and can depend on. Beurer heating pads are known for their quality, efficiency, durability and safety.

When choosing your Beurer heating pad, it's important to ask yourself a few basic questions:

  • How large do I want my heating pad to be?
  • On which body part will I be using this heating pad the most?
  • How important is temperature adjustment to me?
  • Do I need my heating pad to feel soft against my bare skin?

To make searching for the right pad a bit easier for you, we've put together a table that lists all of our most popular Beurer heating pads, along with their most essential features that answer your questions. By clicking on the image, you can learn more about an individual product.
