One of my favorite lower back pain alternatives is an Infrared Heating Pad, especially a Jade Infrared Heating Pad.
If you have lower back pain or any other type of back pain, you have inflammation. This heating pad will help reduce that inflammation. Once it’s reduced, your body starts to work at soothing, repairing & strengthening itself from the inside out.
Hopefully, my Infrared Heating Pad Review will help make your decision a little easier.

6. My Personal Opinion (Pros & Cons)
NINE TYPES OF CHRONIC PAIN RELIEF
A Far Infrared Heating Pad penetrates the skin up to 3 inches (regular heating pads penetrate up to 3mm).
Infrared will help heal your body by increasing the oxygen in your tissue, improving your blood circulation & vitalizing your cells.
Along with Lower Back Pain, infrared heating pads can relieve pain from:
■ Overworked muscles
■ Reduces inflammation & pain in your muscles & joints
■ Improves mobility in your joints & bones
■ All Types of Back Pain
■ Spinal Problems
If you’re in a hurry, & you’d like to try an Infrared Heating Pad, make sure you check all three companies below. Quite often, one of them is having a sale.
In my opinion only, the best-infrared heating Pad is the Therasage. I bought mine from the Healthy Back Institute because they had a 30-day free trial, a 90-day money back guarantee & a two-year warranty. Still, check all 3 companies as there can be a big difference in prices sometimes.
If Lower Back Pain isn’t your only health issue, you might want to consider an Infrared Sauna. Instead of moving the pad from one area to the next, you can sit in the sauna & help all your medical issues in one sitting.
BENEFITS OF JADE STONE IN A FAR INFRARED HEATING PAD
Jade is the most powerful and effective far infrared emitter found on earth. It penetrates through your skin into your muscle tissue and ligaments. It causes the blood vessels in your capillaries to dilate and improves your blood circulation. This, in turn, promotes healing to your muscles and soft tissue injuries.
When FIR waves pass through Jade stone, the stone stores and will conduct the heat evenly to your body, Jade stones also emit negative Ions, which is very important in therapy for general wellness.
Eastern medicine uses Jade to improve blood detoxification, heart, immunity, kidneys, lungs, to strengthen the body’s filtration & cleansing system to help remove toxins & to support the thymus gland.
20 Health Problems A Far Infrared Heating Pad Can Help
A far infrared heating pad, with Jade Stones, are suitable for people with any of the following:
3. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
5. Golfer’s Elbow
7. Neck Pain
8. Shoulder Pain
9. Plantar Fasciitis
13. Tennis Elbow
16. Hip Pain
18. Repetitive Strain Injury
19. Rheumatoid Arthritis
20. Rotator Cuff
For years I had recurring Pneumonia or Bronchitis. I started using my pad, 3 times a day, for about 30 minutes each time. Within 3-4 days it was gone. That’s without taking pharmaceuticals.
Now, at the start of a cold, I use my infrared pad and stop it before it turns into something worse. It works great at breaking up congestion.
There are many excellent Back Pain Relief Products. I would really recommend starting your back pain treatment with an infrared pad first. I’ve had excellent results using one.
The National Institute of Health did a controlled study on “Infrared Therapy For Chronic Low Back Pain.” It proved that infrared is very beneficial for reducing chronic lower Back Pain with no adverse effects. Read the above article for more info on their study.
FAR INFRARED HEATING PAD DANGERS & WHO SHOULDN’T USE ONE
An Infrared Heating Pad might cause health issues if you have any of the following health conditions.
■ Diabetics (If you can’t feel hot or cold)
■ If you have medical implants of any kind
■ Have open wounds Or acute injuries
■ Skin Lesions
■ Implanted silicon or silicon prostheses
If you have any of the above conditions, it’s IMPERATIVE that you CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR before using an Infrared Heating Pad.
ONE MORE WARNING:
If you’ve pulled a muscle, wait at least 24 hours before you use your infrared heating pad. Some people can use heat right away, but I’m not one of those people. Most doctors will tell you to apply cold off & on for the first 24 hours.

Infrared Heating Pad Pros & Cons
I bought my first Infrared Heating Pad about 3 years ago. I purchased a Therasage. I’ll give you a quick review of what I liked & didn’t like about it.
As always, check with your doctor first.
PROS ON A FAR INFRARED HEATING PAD:
I have had numerous back problems & a real problem with Chronic Inflammation in my back. You can read my story on my, About Me, page. Because of my fir heating pad, I no longer take an anti-inflammatory. Therefore, I no longer have to put up with side effects from pharmaceuticals.
Infrared has done wonders for my back. Whenever I lift something wrong or do something that puts my back out, this is the first thing I reach for (after 24 hours as it’s better to wait 24 hours if you’ve pulled a muscle)
For me, it works best if I use it about 3 times a day for a half hour each time. You’ll have to experiment for yourself. Everyone is different. Some people lay on their far infrared pad while watching t.v. There’s no danger in how long you use it. Make sure you let it heat up for about 10 minutes first. It doesn’t automatically jump to the heat setting you set it at.
CONS ON AN INFRARED HEATING PAD
My first con is the expense. They’re well worth it, but they’re expensive. If this is too much, for you to pay, check eBay. When you’re on eBay, scroll down the page because there can be quite a difference in prices from one person to the next.
Just make sure you check to see what the seller’s rating is before you purchase. I’ve received the best deals at eBay.
Another Con is, it takes 15 minutes to heat up to the setting you put it on. Don’t just turn it on & lay down in case you fall asleep. I’ve used mine overnight, but I had let it warm up for 15 minutes first.
My last con is, it’s a bit stiff. It’s great for your back, but if you want it for your ankle or shoulder, it’s a bit awkward to wrap it around. You Can buy Infrared Heating pads for specific areas, like your neck, knee or ankle.

I am so happy to hear the infrared heating pad has helped you. Back pain is a hard thing to deal with especially when it is every day. All the very best to you. Thanks so much for leaving a comment.
Thank you for this information. I recently purchased an I relief pad with jade and tourmaline and you had answered many questions first. I have arthritis in lower back with bones spurs and something set off the periformas muscle, This infrared pad has been a God send! Use it first thing in the am for about an hour at 140 after it heats up while having morning coffee. Allows me to go on about my day!!!! Thank you .
Thanks for leaving a reply, Mohdraghib. I’m glad you enjoyed my article. I’ve had my infrared heating pad for quite a few years & wouldn’t be without it. It’s done wonders on my neck back & knees.
Jade infrared heating pad is looks a better choice to overcome from deleterious pain that people mostly endure in joints and back.
Really a good post focused to help people.
I’m glad you enjoyed my article. There isn’t really a recommended heat temperature. The Infrared Heating Pad should be hot to the point where it’s not burning your skin. I usually turn mine on for about 15 minutes before I use it as it’s slow to heat up. If it’s not overly hot I’ll turn it up by 1 & of course if it’s too hot I’ll turn it down. Just don’t put it on and fall asleep as it does get hotter as time goes on.
I do love mine. I use it for so many different things now.
Hello, I really enjoyed your post. It was very helpful. But I was wondering….how hot should a pad get. Is there a recommended heat temperature?
I also enjoyed your links. Thank you.
Just so that you know, I am not a health care professional. I did contact the Healthy Back Institute. That’s where I bought my infrared heating pad from. They told me that with some metal implants it could weaken, warp or damage them and strongly recommended that you talk it over with your doctor first. They also mentioned that even if your doctor gives you the okey, not to put it directly on the spot where the implant is. One of my relatives uses it for arthritis with good results but she doesn’t have metal rods in her back.
I hope this information helps you.
I have had my disc 4 & 5 fused together and a stenosis surgery. I suffer from arthritis in my back as well. I wake up stiff and achy every morning. Will your product help me and or is it safe to use since I do have metal rods in my back?
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate that. I just quickly took a look at the UTK. It does have good ratings. They have one for the neck & shoulders. After I purchase one, I’ll do a review on it. Thanks for mentioning the fact that negative ions have numerous health benefits. I’ll have to go back to my article & expand a bit.
Very nice and informative post.
UTK infrared is the best not only for infrared heat therapy but also for negative ion which is great for several health benefits. Probably you should have discussed a little ( though you mentioned ) regarding this matter, still a great post.
Hi Willard. I’m not sure where you purchased the product from but I would definitely give the company a call to see what they suggest. If you purchased it from Amazon, I’m sure they would replace it. If it’s only 3 months old, I’m sure most companies would replace it. Other than that, do a search on Electrical Repair & put your city name after that. That’s what I did when my T.V. remote broke. There was a shop in the city where I live that were able to fix it for me.
Where do you get the control repaired. I brougth the small pad and really liked it. After about three months the control went hay wired. I’ve tried to find out where to send it to get mit repaired. Any help would be appreciated.
