Learn how to relax sore, tight back muscles so you can move more freely
Often the underlying cause of back pain is tight muscles. ThermaCare® Lower Back & Hip HeatWraps deliver 8 hours of therapeutic warmth that work with the body to temporarily relieve pain and stiffness. These single-use wraps are designed to relax sore, tight muscles, helping make body movement freer and easier.
ThermaCare® Lower Back & Hip HeatWraps are clinically proven to provide up to 16 hours of relief. That’s 8 hours while you wear it and 8 hours after you take it off.
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 two to four weeks).
Avoid heavy lifting, strenuous exercise and uncomfortable positions.
Use medication as directed.
Maintain normal activity.
