ThermaCare Lower Back & Hip Heat Wraps Large/Xlarge
Whether you take hot baths, use heating pads or hot water bottles, heat therapy is a well-known remedy to help ease muscular pain, and reduce inflammation and soreness. ThermaCare technology combines iron, oxygen, water and salt in single-use HeatWraps to produce real heat and stimulate healing right where you need it.
These heat wraps are specially designed to fit your lower back and hips so you can move freely and more comfortably. Patented heat cells deliver therapeutic heat to provide pain relief, relax tight muscles and accelerate healing.
Relieve and heal back pain with ThermaCare Lower Back & Hip HeatWraps.
How Does It Work?
The patented technology in Thermacare HeatWraps works by allowing real heat to penetrate damaged tissue, increasing blood flow to the source of pain to accelerate healing and relieve pain. It works differently than other patches and creams, which mask pain instead of healing it.
• Delivers heat deep into tissue, warming the muscle right where it hurtsuto relax, soothe and unlock tight muscles
• Patented heat cells get right to the source, to stop pain and accelerate healing
• Specially designed to fit your back and hip area
• Enhanced elasticity for a better fit
• Allows you to move freely while delivering therapeutic heat
• Thin enough to wear discreetly under clothing
• Flexible enough to be worn on the move or while relaxing
• Managing Lower Back and Hip Pain
Approaches to muscle and joint pain management have changed dramatically in the last 10 years. Experts now recommend staying active and exercising. Use ThermaCare HeatWraps at any early sign of pain. Combined with exercise, this can help keep muscle and joint pain under control.
What You Can Do
Combine the heat therapy of ThermaCare with the following
• Perform range-of-motion and strengthening exercises while pain symptoms are present
• Move on to low-stress exercises (e.g., walking, swimming or cycling) after pain symptoms have improved (typically 2 to 4 weeks)
• Avoid heavy lifting, strenuous exercise and uncomfortable positions
• Use medication as directed
• Maintain normal activity
• Consult your doctor
Consult your doctor (or physician) before beginning a new exercise regimen
