Using Far Infrared Heat for Pain Relief
Hey everybody its Doctor Jo, and it’s product review time again. The folks at
Thermotex partnered up with us and sent us their Thermotex Platinum. So let’s
So the cool thing about Thermotex is they are a far infrared heating system. And
the reason that far infrared is so much better than a traditional heating pad is
because it penetrates further into the body. So it gets down different layers. A
traditional heating pad usually only goes about 0.25 centimeters. Far infrared goes
all the way up to about 6 centimeters or 2.36 inches, so it gets way down where
that inflammation, that irritation, that pain is without burning your skin. So
that’s the best part, it goes nice and deep. It doesn’t dry out and make you
dehydrated because it’s not a heat it’s a light system, so it’s really really
cool. It works great it gets deep down into those achy joints, achy muscles,
and it really helps to temporary relieve pain. So let me show you it a little bit,
and I’ll talk a little bit more about its awesome things that it does. So this
one is their platinum system, and it’s really cool because it’s super versatile. You
can put it almost anywhere on your body. So as you can see here, it’s super soft
which is really really nice when you’re putting it against your body and your
skin and stuff. The cord here is also really nice because you have the on/off
button, but let’s say you have it on your body and you have to go to the bathroom
or something. Well instead of taking the whole thing off if you’ve got it on you
nicely, you can just unplug it right here and then take it with you and come back.
So I really like that component as well because if you have it on you for about
45 minutes, sometimes you have to get up and do something else, or if the doorbell
rings or something, you just unplug it instead of taking it all the way off and
then having to come back and put it all the way back on. It also comes with two
straps here, a shorter version and a longer version, and that’s really nice
because since you can put it on so many different parts of your body, you might
want the shorter strap for something like a foot or wrist, and then if you’re
doing your body like your back, or you know if you’re having some
cramps in the front, you use the longer strap to put all the way around your
body. So that’s really really nice as well. The back part here this is the part
that goes on the outer side is it’s squishy. And the Platinum has three
heating plates which is really nice because then that again, you can wrap it
around the body part it gets a very big surface. So there’s a lot of stuff going
on here for the Platinum. Where the logo is, that goes against your body and it’s
a little bit firmer on this side so that’s how you can tell the difference,
but then the plates go really close really nice to your body which makes it
good because it sits on there and it’s very comfortable. And it doesn’t have to
be tight that’s the other great thing. Since it penetrates so far, that six
centimeters, or 2.36 inches, you don’t have to wrap it tight
around your body, so it’s hugging you so close, you can put it you know nice and
loose on the body, you don’t have to wrap it so tight. So I like that too because
sometimes you can just drape it over something if you’re laying down and
relaxing, you don’t have to strap it on if you don’t want to. And so that’s what
makes it so cool being able to use it basically anywhere. So the far infrared
is really good for things like back pain, if you’ve got those muscle spasms in the
back, if you have some arthritis, things like that. What it does is it helps
increase the circulation to the area and this is really good because it not only
helps relax muscles, but it calms down that inflammation. That increase in
circulation helps move that stuff out of the area to help the healing process, so
it’s really really nice in that fact. You can also use it for things like
tendonitis, bursitis, you can use it for strains and sprains, but make sure to
remember if it’s something acute injury, like that just happened, those sprains or
those strains, the first 24 to 48 hours you really want to be icing it to calm
down that extreme inflammation, but once you get into that about 48 hour, you can
alternate between ice and heat or you can just do the heat. And the
far infrared is really really great for that. Another one that I really really
like this for is fibromyalgia. You know it’s one of those diagnosis that people
get when sometimes the doctors might not know what’s going
on, and unfortunately I think it’s misdiagnosed a lot, so using something
like this is really helpful because maybe that’s something else this will
help with it too, but if it’s that true fibromyalgia, again it really helps with
that inflammation because that’s a form of arthritis and it flares up those
nerves and it makes them go crazy, so having that far infrared heat is really
really comfortable. It helps calm everything down and a lot of times you
can put it on and then get going and feeling much better throughout the day,
so it’s really nice I like it a lot. When you first start out with this, if you
have had an injury or something or just feeling achy all over, you really want to
do it about two times a day if you can and you want to do it for about 30 to 45
minutes. The way this system works is it’s one setting which is nice because
then you don’t have to worry about picking numbers of which one you want. It doesn’t
get too hot, but you do sometimes want to let it warm up a little bit first. They
recommend about 10 minutes, but as I’ve been using it, I noticed that you really
can start feeling the benefits of it within just a first few minutes, but if
you want to turn it on for a little bit a couple minutes and then come put it on,
you can do that as well, they do recommend kind of warming it up first.
And then after you get you know maybe a week in doing it twice day you can take
it down a little bit, but it’s still good to use it every day because that’s what
helps really getting that warmth that increased circulation in there getting
that penetration down deep in there so it’s great. And another great thing about
this is the cover is washable. You can do machine wash or hand wash and so you see
how it has velcro here where you can take it off, and there’s instructions in
the instruction manual of how to wash it, so that’s really nice too because you
can take it off and keep it clean and wash it occasionally. So let me show you
a couple ways to put it on all parts of the body because that’s what makes it so
great you can use it anywhere. So the first one I like is just around the back,
and they also recommend where the cord comes out have it going downwards just
because then that doesn’t tug and pull on it if it’s this way it puts a little
more pressure on that area so it makes it nice or
to have it you know wherever it’s plugged in you want it going downward, so
it just hangs down nicely. I’m going to use the big one the long strap to go all
the way around, and what I do is since it’s kind of a universal strap for any
size I actually take mine just to get it nice and wrap all the way around so you
can see here, it went all the way around.If you don’t need to go all the way around,
that’s fine but again it’s just nice and comfortable on the back there doesn’t
have to be tight, it can be looser than this, I just kind of like mine if I’m
sitting up, but if you’re lying down you can have it a little bit looser as well,
so that makes it super nice and easy and since it’s velcro it comes off very
quickly and easily. As far as maybe your elbow wrist area what’s great about it
is the plate in the middle, you can kind of put on either side, but remember it
penetrates so deeply it doesn’t really matter even if you’re hurting on this
side, that’s enough where we’ll go all the way
through. So if you’re more comfortable putting it this way you can, but if you
want to put it directly on the area you can as well, but remember it penetrates
pretty deeply, so it doesn’t have to go directly on where you’re hurting.
So if you’re hurting in the wrist area, you can just put it almost like a
c-shape, see how that is, or the C shape like that, and then you can just kind of
hold it like that and and wrap it around. So again it doesn’t have to be super
tight unless you want it to, and so this one you probably want to use the smaller
straps or so you don’t have to wrap it around so much, but you can see that I
was able to do that. Let me show you the smaller strap real quickly. So here and
then here, so that’s nice. So see it doesn’t have to be tight, but it’s still
getting all those areas which is nice and beneficial. And so again with the
elbow, you can just move your arm up and then it goes directly onto your elbow.
Especially if you have you know something going on on either side, it
will get the the side panels will get those as well.
You can also come down to something like the knee. And so again you can either do
it if you want the top and the bottom that C kind of motion, you might want
to lay down or sit down so you can put your knee straight if you want to, and
then just put it on that way. Or if you want to get both sides, if it’s something on
the inside or the outside, you can do it that way as well and have a little more
bend in your knee if you want to do it that way. Same thing for the foot. You can
put the bottom plate down on the bottom of your foot, and then just curl it up on
each end, and then just have it like that. So as you can see, you can do it almost
anywhere it’s so cool, it’s neat. You can go up to your shoulder or your neck.
Depending on how much looseness you want, you can do the short strap or the long
strap. Make sure you don’t choke yourself, so you might want the longer
strap, so it’s just kind of sitting there. You can do it a couple different ways
some they recommend putting the middle one kind of in the curve of the neck
having the top one up on your head and then the lower one kind of down. So with
that one, it would probably be more comfortable if you lie down on it which
you can certainly do that. And then you can also just kind of have it on your
shoulder area as well, so something like that, and again it doesn’t have to be tight
it doesn’t have to be super snug on there because the way this goes so deep
down and that light moves all the way through, it doesn’t have to be super
tight because it’s not heat it’s light that’s going through. So this is why I
like this so much, and the far-infrared is great. And they also have research
that proves that it really does work, and if you want to check out that research,
you can go on their website. They have internal and external studies to show
that it really goes in there, it really gets that inflammation calmed down,
increases the circulation to help with all those pains and aches and make you
feel better. So this is really really great for
almost any kind of injury, pains, aches, but there are some health conditions
where you probably shouldn’t use it. A big one is if you’re pregnant. Make
sure you’re not using it when you’re pregnant. Also
hemophilia. If you’re hemophiliac, you you don’t want to use this. Or even
severe adrenal suppression. Those are things that you probably shouldn’t use
this on. Make sure you don’t, but you should always ask your doctor first if
the far infrared is okay to use on your body. Also if you have something like
pins, screws, hardware’s in your body, this is okay to use. It might feel a little
bit different, you might feel like a little vibration feeling, for example me.
I have pins in my hand. When I’ve use it on my hand, I don’t really feel anything,
but I’ve had them for a long time. So it’s okay to use you might just want to
start off with like five or ten minutes just to see how it feels
in case you are feeling something, but it’s okay to use. So especially people
after a surgery or something have little flare-ups every once in a while and
that’s okay to use this. So there you have it. If you have any questions, leave

Infrared Heat Pad FAQ
What temperature of infrared heating pad?
An infrared heating pad is a useful invention that can provide comfort to people who are suffering from various kinds of ailments and who are always on the move. This kind of heating device is very effective at heating the whole body since its temperature reaches up to a hundred and twenty degrees per second. In comparison to a traditional kind of pad which only heats the fingers, or feet, an infrared one will warm the whole body. The infrared radiation actually warms the body naturally and therefore people who suffer from ailments such as arthritis, shingles, etc., can enjoy long and healthy lives provided they use this kind of a heating pad.
Infrared heating pads can be used in homes and offices, and they can be installed in any part of the house or office where there is electricity supply. They are easy to operate and require no special wiring as compared to the conventional kind of heating pad. A conventional heating pad also requires installation that is either permanent or temporary in nature. The infrared one does not need any installation, as it can simply be plugged in. The infrared radiant heat actually travels from the device and reaches the area that needs to be heated.
One of the major advantages of using an infrared heating pad is that it is easy to control. The infrared energy actually reaches the parts that need to be warmed in a much shorter time. People can control the temperature of the infrared heating pad in a matter of seconds by using their hands or some other similar means. Those who use this kind of a heating pad are able to make themselves comfortable, as the temperature of the pad does not rise above the body’s core temperature. The infrared heating pad can thus be used as an alternative to the conventional heating pads and can therefore be used in places that are difficult to access using conventional heaters.
How to use an infrared heating pad?
If you want to use an infrared heating pad, there are several things you should consider before you buy one. One of the major side effects of using an infrared heating pad is that many of them emit excessive EMF. Thus it is important to find a heating pad which has very low or no EMF at all in it. EMF is what you receive from your computer, cell phone, microwave, cordless phones and even from the super strong ultraviolet light your friendly yellow sun emits. There are several websites on the internet that will help you find an infrared heating pad which has absolutely no EMF in it.
Another thing to consider when choosing a heating pad to use for pain relief, is the thermostat. You must always make sure that the temperature of your pad is set to a comfortable setting for you and not too hot or too cold. The average human being should be able to tell the difference between a hot and cold sensation. It is difficult for some people to control their body temperature, which is why a comfortable temperature is so important. One way to control your temperature is to simply take a couple of pillows and place them on your lap while you are in bed.
When looking for an IR heating pad, you must also look into the cons of using these heaters. Many people have argued that they are not as effective as some say they are. There are several factors including the fact that there is not much scientific proof that using these heaters actually helps with pain relief.
Infrared heating pad for back pain
An infrared heating pad for back pain can help ease the pain and stiffness that comes with such a condition. The heat radiating from an infrared heating pad is similar to that which comes from a sauna, however it does not contain the high temperatures that one experiences when using one. Infrared heat can be used for a variety of different things from heating up the home to working as a therapy to relieve muscle aches and pains. This type of heat therapy is also used to prevent muscle deterioration due to injury or aging. The heat from an infrared heating pad is absorbed into the body instead of being sent out through the air causing much discomfort for those who use it.
Another benefit of using infrared heating pads is that they work in a very natural way. This means that the person touching the pad will not feel any difference in temperature compared to when they are lying on a couch or bed. There is no need to worry about stones being left on the floor because the infrared mats can pick up and absorb the energy from the stones. Also, infrared mats can work to expel toxins from the body without causing any discomfort to those who are touching them. This is done through the heat-absorbing capabilities of the materials, as well as the crystals that can be placed in the pad.
The heat that comes from the infrared heating pad for back pain is absorbed into the skin through its 3d air mesh pad. This allows for the heat to go directly to the body without going through the layers of the skin. This process works to kill pain-causing bacteria without increasing the amount of pain experienced by the user. Users who suffer from chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia or arthritis find that this type of treatment is a great alternative to other methods that are used to treat such ailments.
Infrared heating pad for hip pain
A pain pad is a great way to reduce pain from a variety of conditions, and an infrared heating pad for hip pain is just one type available. If your pain is coming from something that can be treated with heat therapy, you want to make sure that you are buying the right equipment. It is always important to talk to your doctor before starting any type of therapy or exercise, and this includes using pain relievers or heat pads. They should be safe for you to use, so ask them about using a pad for hip pain or any other type of pain that you may be experiencing. They can also recommend a therapy that will work better for you and your condition.
An infrared heating pad for hip pain can provide some relief of pain, and it is a good way to start treatment. You need to get as informed as possible about how they work and what their benefits are, so you can take the best course of action for your pain and other treatments that you may be trying. This type of equipment has been used widely in many different types of therapies, and more is coming out on the market every year. The main benefit of using an infrared heating pad is that it is safe and affordable to use and you can start treatment immediately, without having to wait.
If your pain is coming from arthritis, joint problems, sports injuries or car accidents, you should look into infrared heating pads for pain and try using them for relief as soon as possible. There is no reason why you should have to keep suffering when there is proven pain relief available for your condition. Many doctors also recommend using heat therapy when there is pain in the ribs, buttocks or upper thighs. Infrared technology has changed the way that people treat their conditions, and the technology is becoming more affordable. Talk to your doctor and see if they can suggest a therapy for you to try for pain relief.
Infrared heating pad for upper arms
If you want to be able to effectively and painlessly massage your upper arms, it is important that you use an infrared heating pad for upper arms. When you place one of these heaters on your shoulder or upper arms, you will notice a warming effect that can provide some relief from pain as well as promoting better blood circulation throughout the area. These heaters are relatively inexpensive, especially compared to some of the other types of massages that you can receive from a professional therapist or from a chiropractor. This can make a very big difference in both your physical therapy needs and your budget, making this an ideal option for many individuals who are interested in receiving a high-quality massage.
One of the main reasons why you would want to purchase an infrared heating pad for your upper arms is because you will find that it can take a lot of the physical stress out of having to do arm exercises that incorporate push-ups or sit-ups. The pad will provide you with a heat source that will allow you to easily perform the exercises without actually hurting yourself. Another reason why you might want to consider purchasing one of these heaters for your upper arms is because they can provide you with a very nice relaxing feeling on your upper arms when they are being used. Many people enjoy getting a good massage on their shoulders from time to time and if you have pain or sore muscles in these areas, an infrared heating pad for upper arms can help you alleviate some of the pain that you are experiencing.
These heaters can be placed almost anywhere on your upper arms. It is important to try to position them on points that are close to where your muscles are located. This can provide you with a greater range of warmth which can also promote better blood flow throughout the area. The pad should be about waist level or slightly higher and should be placed above your fold line, which is the crease below your skin on the upper arm. Make sure that your towel is slightly cooler than your arm, so that it does not cause you to overheat during the time that you are using it.
