Backache

  • 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 works 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.
    • Consult your doctor
