Thermassages is a new type of wrap that helps with back pain. Most wraps on the market today offer one of a handful of treatments, like heat, compression, or cold therapy. Few and far between have a combination of two or more. This is one of the only options on the market that vibrates, has compression, offers heat, and a place for cold packs. Get everything you need with one belt. Thin and sleek, you can wear it any time.

The cost of Thermassage is $29.99 plus $5.99 shipping, for a total price of $35.98.

Massages

Users can get a soft tissue massage to alleviate pain from a particular area of your back. These massages will target your muscles, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments. A soft tissue massage can include a variety of pressures, depths, and durations. You can alleviate pain and damage to your soft tissue with a soft tissue massage. When you get a soft tissue massage it can relax your muscles, improve your range of motion and flexibility. Moreover, reduce inflammation, improve blood circulation, strengthens your immune system, improves oxygen flow in your body, alleviates muscles tension, and decreases muscle spasms.

When you get a massage it can decrease your blood pressure, enhance your athletic performance. Also, ease stiffness or muscle and joint pain, reduce the stress hormones which attack the part of your brain responsible for memory. Massages improve alpha-beta wave correspondence in your brain which will improve your problem-solving ability, and reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia.

These massage techniques will provide you with chronic pain relief by targeting trigger points in your muscles and your connective tissue. You can also get a massage which focuses on increasing oxygen flow and releasing toxins. Alternatively one which promotes healing in a specifically injured area.

Heat

Applying heat to a part of your body which is in pain will offer relief from stiffness. Doing so will deeply penetrate your muscles and joints which not only help you to feel better, but will improve how quickly your body recovers. When you apply heat to your painful muscles or joints it will stimulate the sensory receptors. Doing so will block the pain signals which are being sent to your brain. This is why it offers effective and fast pain relief.

Heat can come in the form of a hot shower, a heating pack, or hot oils from a therapeutic massage. Hot pressure from this thermassage helps you by reducing the resting muscle tension. This increases your tissue elasticity and will relax painful knots in your back muscles. It quickly soothes your nerve endings which alleviates pain. Also increases the blood flow to the area that is in pain, which brings nutrients and removes injured debris and toxins. Subsequently it increases your healing rate. Deep heat will also stimulate your metabolic rate, which gives your body more energy to fix your injury.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Avoid Sustained Postures

    If you in pain, and using thermassage to help, avoid sustained postures. When you sit or stand improperly it leads to bad habits. Sitting in a bad sustained posture for hours at a time, your body will start to form the bad habit which will make it more difficult for you to break later on. This can lead to bad posture, negative health effects, and a multitude of other long term damage to your body.

  2. Avoid Repetitive Movements

    When you repeat movements over and over, you may get repetitive strain injuries. This is an injury which results from overusing your body in repetitive movements such as using a computer, writing regularly, or conducting any other prolonged, repetitive and forceful movement. Poor posture, poor technique, and overuse can cause injuries which is why you must avoid repetitive movements. Not sleeping well, not exercising, not taking breaks, working on a computer for more than two hours, being sedentary, or having poor posture can all lead to this.

  3. Avoid Heavy Lifting

    You should also avoid heavy lifting. Improper lifting of heavy items is exactly what causes so much back pain. It is best to develop proper lifting habits now if you must lift, so that you reduce your risk of injury later. When you lift heavy items, you should never bend at your waist or use your lower back.

Medications

  • Analygesics

    Medications are a great way to treat the acute symptoms of pain or injuries. There are a variety of medications out there. You can use all of these in addition to the thermassage in order to get the best results. These are designed to reduce pain.

  • Anti-inflammatory

    These medications are responsible for controlling inflammation which is caused by an injury. They also reduce your pain.

  • Muscle Relaxants

    These will sedate you by controlling muscle pain and spasm symptoms.

Warnings

  • When to Call a Doctor

    There are many instances where pain becomes unbearable. If this is the case or your pain continues to worsen it may be in your best interest to consult a medical practitioner. Should your pain persists and medication and other therapies only offer temporary relief or the pain comes back more often or is more severe you will want to consult your medical practitioner.

    A doctor can not only help you by diagnosing the source of your pain but may be able to offer medications which are better suited to target the source of the pain. They may be able to suggest therapies and alternative treatment methods or provide you with a necessary surgery.

    Doctors should be consulted immediately if your back pain has progressed in such a manner that you have lost control over your bowels.
