For many of those who live with chronic pain, heat therapy is an essential part of their pain management strategy. Heat can help to relieve pain and keep you cozy and comfortable, whether you’re curling up with a heating pad or blanket at home, or bringing a heating product with you on the go.

If you rely on a heating pad to soothe your aches and pains, you’re not the only one. Dealing with chronic pain can be challenging in so many ways, but humor can be a helpful coping mechanism – whether you need some giggles on an emotionally taxing day or simply want a few moments of distraction. So, for those who sometimes feel like you are closer with your heating pad than other people, this one goes out to you.
