Many professionals believe daily stretching is an effective way to minimize knee and other joint pain.
A common cause of knee and joint pain is tight muscles. ThermaCare® Knee & Elbow HeatWraps deliver 12 hours of consistent heat that works with the body to temporarily relieve minor pain and increase flexibility. The heat therapy helps relax sore, tight muscles, making body movement freer and easier.
ThermaCare® Knee & Elbow HeatWraps use adjustable straps to provide a custom fit that delivers pain-relieving heat where it counts.
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
*Consult your doctor (or physician) before beginning a new exercise regimen
