Did you hear on NPR that you can reduce and recover from chronic back pain with Yoga exercises?  Instead of going for the pain medication first consider some helpful yoga exercises to help reduce and manage your lower back pain.

Did you also know that most heat therapy products that people use for joint pain or muscle pain which includes lower back pain to treat their chronic discomfort only uses surface heat?  That is right.  Those heat therapy products that you purchase over the counter mostly rely on surface heat that barely gets to the area affected.

New Use for our Heat Therapy Wraps

Our Far Infrared Ray Heat Therapy wraps were designed to help diminish aches and pains but we never would have thought they would help customers reduce pain after car accidents.  We want to share a story we received from a customer who unfortunately got in a car accident, but had our Elbow Wrap and got creative with it to reduce their pain:

Dear Venture Heat,

First off, I just want to say how fortunate I am for finding Venture Heat. I couldn’t say ‘thank you’ enough!

A friend and I were recently involved in a car accident the other day. I was stopped at an intersection waiting for this extremely long traffic light to turn green. Once my light finally turned green, I proceeded to drive through the intersection. But, someone from right side of the intersection ignored their red light. This speeding car ran through the red light, t-boned my car and lifted it over the front of its hood. This accident basically trashed my ten year-old car. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the only thing banged up after the accident.

As a result of this collision, my neck became extremely stiff and sore. It was to the point where I couldn’t really turn my head. My friend had trouble walking due to the blow her hip took from the side of the car. The doctors said that they couldn’t do much for the pain except for prescribing painkillers to ease any discomfort. I wasn’t too thrilled about popping pills, so I had to get creative with my therapy.

I then remembered that I bought a couple of FIR heat therapy wraps from Venture Heat for my sore joints. So I placed an elbow wrap on my neck in attempt to ease up the muscles.  Almost immediately, my neck muscles started to relax. After a couple of heating cycles, I was able to move my neck more freely than before. I then let my friend borrow my knee wrap. With her skinny legs, she was able to place it to her sore spot. The heat greatly improved her walking ability after a couple of cycles.

To sum it up, I couldn’t have imagine the pain we would have endured without these FIR heat therapy wraps. Thank you Venture Heat for making this great product!

We are so glad to hear our customer is doing well after the accident and glad that our FIR Heat Therapy wraps were put to new creative and useful tests, that seem to have worked well!

If you have a story like this, we would love to hear about it. Email us!

Taking Care of Heated Clothing

Spring is finally in full swing and most of us couldn’t be happier that the sun is shinning and temperatures are heating up.  So we just wanted to give you a few friendly reminders of the best ways to take care of your heated gear while it waits for next winter.

WASH & CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Remove battery and connecting cable (select models applied). We recommend spot cleaning with damp cloth or hand wash in cold water with mild detergent; hang dry only. Do not twist the garment to prevent damage to cable. Do not dry clean or bleach.

Glove batteries being charged.

CHARGING INSTRUCTIONS
1.) Plug charger into wall power outlet (before plugging battery into charger)
2.) Connect battery(s) into charger
3.) The charger light will turn from red to green once battery(s) is fully charged
*Do not overcharge the battery(s)*

*Reminder: as winter has come to an end (almost for some people) please fully charge your batteries every 3 months. This prolongs the battery life.* 

BATTERY CARE (select models)
To prolong the optimal performance of our lithium-ion battery, we recommend the following steps:

  • Only use battery charger provided by Venture Heat
  • Fully charge the battery prior to first use (battery indicator will turn green).  Charging will vary and you should unplug the battery from charger after the battery is charged
  • Battery should be charged before storage and at least once every 3 months
  • Over time, lithium-ion batteries tend to lose their capacity due to their chemical nature. Erratic charging and heat speed up this degradation. Store in a cool and dry area. Typical battery life spans may range from 2-5 years even with ideal storage conditions and care
  • Do not use batteries that are not designed for the specific model (this voids the warranty and may cause damage)

More Than Just Heated Gear

This winter has been pretty brutal throughout most of the United States.  Even though we are approaching the end of February, Spring doesn’t seem to be approaching any time soon.  Which is why we wanted to provide you with some tips on staying warm, comfortable and maybe even save some money on your bills by replacing your home’s heat with Venture Heat’s heated clothing and gear.

Our heated clothing does more than just keep your adventure going – it allows you to create a personal micro-climate wherever you want and whenever you need it.  Which means it doesn’t always have to be worn outside.  We have seen and heard that our customers save money on their heat bills during the winter months by the following suggestions:

Far Infrared Ray Heat Therapy – Does it work?

The simple answer is yes.  The long answer is still yes, but the FIR heat therapy wrap(s) should be used on a regular basis.

A little background on Far Infrared Ray (FIR):  it is essentially waves of energy that cannot be seen by the naked eye but can penetrate deeply into the body.  Once the rays penetrate the skin, they naturally raise the body’s temperature to about 107.6ºF which benefits the following:

  • Expands your capillaries which increases blood flow, regeneration, circulation and oxygenation
  • Boosts metabolism and promotes detox – eliminates fats, toxins, etc., from the blood
  • Stimulates enzyme activity
  • Improves the rebuilding of injured tissue
  • Promotes the relief of nerves
  • Increases white blood cell to support your immune system

As a new employee at Venture Heat, I was unaware of what Far Infrared Rays were or how they could benefit me, but I would soon find out.FIR Heat Therapy Knee Wrap

I have had on-and-off again knee issues from high school through adulthood, mainly due to sports and wear-and-tear over the years.  Growing up, hockey and lacrosse overlapped so it  was year-round training, practicing, and playing.  That has tapered off in adulthood, but that doesn’t mean the knee discomfort did.  Although I still play hockey and work out on a regular basis, my knee limited me to certain exercises – until I was given the Knee Heat Therapy Wrap as a welcome gift from Venture Heat.  Let’s just say I wish I had this FIR heat wrap when I was younger!  I started using the heated knee wrap after every hockey game and whenever I felt discomfort – so about 3-4 times a week for 30 minutes.  After a month of consistently using it, the discomfort started to go away and is now almost unnoticeable.  We are not claiming this is a miracle worker, but FIR heat therapy can improve your quality of life – it has for me!

The Correct Way to Maintain Batteries

7.4V Battery

Battery Connection for Lithium-Ion Battery

One of the most common questions we hear is how to properly care for the batteries supplied with our clothing. So here are a few tips on how to get the most out of your Lithium-Ion Batteries: our clothing. So here are a few tips on how to get the most out of your Lithium-Ion Batteries:

  • The Lithium-Ion Battery should be fully charged for the first use
  • Once turned on, keep the battery in its designated pocket for protection and warmth
  • In below freezing temperatures, turn on your battery before going outside
    • The battery stops discharging power at -20F and since the battery will already be running, thus it will naturally keep warm
  • Charge the battery at least once every three months
  • Keep the battery fully charged when not in use
  • Store batteries at room temperature, in a cool, dry place

All batteries eventually wear out over time which is why it is important to get the most out of each one. Lithium-Ion batteries typically decrease capacity by around 10% each year while having a good service life of 2-3 years. VentureHeat’s Lithium Ion Batteries typically last up to 500 charges so even though they last a long time, the more TLC you give the battery, the longer life they can have. If you have any tips, please share them with us in the comment section!

How JFK Ran The Country In Severe Back Pain

Eight Different Medications Just To Get Through The Day…

So let’s just imagine you’re the President of the United States and every morning you make a trip to your doctor’s office.  You have brutally severe back pain.  The doctor gives you eight, yes, eight different medications ranging from pain killers to antispasmodics and even antidepressants.

Everyday starts off this way because otherwise, it’s going to be incredibly painful and impossible to function normally.  Top that off by dealing with politicians, ruthless despots and problems at home.  Such was the life of John F. Kennedy and how he dealt with severe back pain before and during his presidency.  Now the causes of his back pain were widely debated.  Theories ranged from football and war injuries to steroid injections taken as a child for digestive problems.

Just to give you an idea how secretive his back pain was, JFK’s medical records weren’t released until around 2002…a full 39 years after his passing.  You probably had a better chance breaking into the CIA offices than you did learning about his medical problems.  The same was true for Franklin Roosevelt, even photo opportunities were carefully scripted to cover up illnesses and ailments.

The types of treatments JFK had to endure were as intense as the pain in his back.    One story relates to his first year as president in 1961.  Kennedy could be heard screaming in pain when Jacqueline Kennedy rushed in from another room to call for the White House doctor Dr. Janet Travell.  All the good doctor could do was numb his pain with an injection of procaine deep into the back muscles.

But this only worked as a temporary measure.

Treating back pain today isn’t all much different.  In fairness, treatment depends on the type of back problems you’re having but here’s a list of treatments by WebMD.  So what do you do when you’re in severe back pain and trying to still go to work?  The easy answer is to see a doctor, get plenty of rest and stay away from the office.  But let’s be honest, most of us just don’t have that luxury.

JFK had to tough it out.  He had a country to run and domestic and international problems that weren’t going to wait for his pain to go away.  Imagine Fidel Castro or Nikita Khrushchev saying, “hey wait the President of the United States has back pain.  Let’s wait to threaten the western hemisphere with nuclear weapons!”

So what’s your method for dealing with muscle pain at work?  Leave some comments below and let us know!
