Man has pain in the neck and hips on the backExtra hot heating pads are not for everyone but if you want super heat on aching muscles, ligaments or joints, there are several choices for you to think about.

Here are three you might want to consider:

1. Thermophore MaxHeat 14″ x 27″ Heating Pad

This is a moist heating pad that draws in moisture from the surrounding air.  No addition of water is necessary.

It gets extremely hot without burning you because it can’t get any higher than the boiling temperature of water, which is 212 degrees Fahrenheit.

There is a one touch control on this device which makes it easy to use.

This device is especially good for loosening up muscle spasm and cramping muscles because it gets deep to the muscle and works well to relieve the stiffness of muscles that goes along with muscle spasm.

It comes with an outer cover made from a cotton blend fleece material.  You basically plug it in and place it over the area of the body that is in pain from muscle spasm.  There are three temperature levels to choose from and it is set to work on the muscle for 20 minutes.

You put it on the muscle area for half an hour with an hour’s time before you should put the extra hot heating pad on again.

2. Thermotech Automatic Digital Moist Heating Pad 14″x26″

This is a very hot heating pad that comes with four different time and heat settings.  It is 14 inches by 26 inches in diameter so that it can cover a large area of the body, such as the back.  It eases the muscle spasms of the area it is applied to and will improve the blood circulation, which aids in healing of the muscles.

Like other heating pads of this type, it comes with an outer covering made from fleece.  You basically put it over the affected painful area and turn on the switch.  There will be a brief beeping sound to tell you that the heating pad is working.

The automatic treatment time is set at fifteen minutes and 113 degrees Fahrenheit, although you can set it for longer and hotter.  There is an option for a full hour of heating with a light telling you which length of time you have set.

As mentioned, there are four heating settings.  You basically press the button on the controller to set the optimal heat for you.  If it is too hot, you can always select a lower level on the controller.

It goes up to 166 degrees Fahrenheit, which is plenty hot for the relief of muscle spasms. The heating pad shuts off automatically.

3. TheraTherm Shoulder Neck Heating Pad

This is an extra hot heating pad designed especially for the shoulders.  It form fits across the shoulders to provide extra-hot heating.  It has timer that is automatic and can be adjusted through a hand-held control device.

It can be set to temperatures up to 166 degrees Fahrenheit.  It has an outside diameter of 23 inches by 20 inches and weighs about two pounds.

This is a moist heat type of heating device and is better for the muscles because it conducts heat much better than a dry heating pad can.  It opens up the blood vessels for better muscle healing and eases your pain at the same time.  It operates on a digital display for easier reading.

If you are looking for an extra hot heating pad, any of these three devices will work well for you.  The one you choose depends on where your pain is located and on the special features of each type of heating pad.
