Sources of Pain
When you are stressed or if you have poor posture it can cause some muscles in your back, shoulders, and neck to remain tense for a long period of time. Should your body be tense for a long period of time it results in muscle stiffness which can cause pain. Pain is simply the way your body tells you that something is wrong. There are thousands of reasons why you might have shoulder, neck, or back pain including something like bad sleeping habits, regular aging, or a more serious medical condition. In any case tension in the back, neck, and shoulders are generally caused by your body's stress response. As such, stress reducing techniques, healthy diet, and exercise can help you to reduce the amount of tension you have. Improved posture, even when you were sitting, can help you.
Massage and Heat
Beyond that, physically massaging the muscles that are tense can help you to improve circulation or reduce stress. Massages do not have to be given by a professional in order to do this. You can simply do it yourself. Vibration massages like those which are offered in the relief wraps can provide some relief but there is not a great deal of clinical evidence to support it. Similar to mechanical massages, heat therapy can penetrate your muscles, and prove your blood circulation by dilating your blood vessels. What's more, it can also decrease the pain signals that are sent to your brain. Spine health magazine recommends that you produce warm heat, enough to penetrate the muscles but not have to bring your skin over an extended period of time.
Penetrating heat can be achieved with electrical heating pads, wraps, hot baths, or even saunas. Thankfully, the heating and the vibration functions in this wraps can provide a modicum of benefits to the body and help you to relieve your pain.
How It Works
Relief wrap restores your relaxation by soothing away tension and reducing soreness in your shoulders and back. It stimulates blood flow and improve circulation with the heating elements. Doing so can reduce swelling, promote relaxation, decrease any discomfort in your joints, and offer stress relief.
If you have very moderate tension in your back shoulders or neck if you can more easily save money by using something like this unit. Use this instead of spending hundreds of dollars per month on professional massages, trips to the sauna, or other tools that might not be as effective. Even if you do need professional massages, trips to the sauna, or other tools, and you can produce, potentially, the frequency with which you use them by using the relief wraps periodically.
How it's Different from Competitors
Other heating and vibrating units rely upon an element that is simply heated in the microwave, and elements like rice which might retain the heat for a few hours at a mild or moderate level. These options do not require electricity so they save you money but they do not offer the massaging option.
The massage unit that is included is not going to be like a professional massage. You are not going to get serious pressure from plush heating unit like this. If you have serious problems or pain you would be better off getting adjusted by a professional.
This unit does require some form of electrical outlet power it. You cannot simply use it on its own.
- Coverage Area
Consider whether you actually need the heat and vibration in your neck, shoulders, or lower back. You might need the same therapy in the ankles, knees, or elbows. Relief wraps gives you a large coverage area but you can't really use it on any other part of your body. What's more, the one-size-fits-all design makes it almost impossible for really small or really large people to use it. It requires a cord and power but the court is only 9 feet long so you are somewhat limited in terms of where you can use it.
- Cause of Pain
If you have mild or moderate muscle pain, the use of heat and vibrations might be helpful. However for symptoms like a pinched nerve, a non-muscular issue, or a slipped disc, it will not be effective.
- Talk to Your Doctor
You should definitely talk to your doctor if you have chronic, or regularly occurring, back, neck, or shoulder tension. Series pain can be indicative of a serious problem. Speaking with your doctor can help you determine whether or not this release wrap is a good thing to use. Many doctors might suggest that you use it in addition to other types of therapy for professional massages.
Tips & Tricks
- Try Lying Down
Due to the pressure delivered by the massaging settings is not strong, it is recommended that you recline in the chair or lie down. Do this while you have it draped over your shoulders so that you can get a higher amount of pressure on your body.
