Muscle Pain

  • See how therapeutic warmth works with the body to help relieve muscular aches and stiffness

  • Tight muscles in the upper body (neck, shoulders and arms) can contribute to pain and stiffness. Versatile ThermaCare® Neck, Wrist & Shoulder HeatWraps are designed to conform to the contours of these upper-body areas and deliver 8 hours of therapeutic heat.

    Often the underlying cause of pain is tight muscles. ThermaCare® Lower Back & Hip HeatWraps deliver up to 16 hours of therapeutic heat that gets to the source of pain. These single-use HeatWraps are designed to relax sore, tight muscles and accelerate healing, helping make body movement freer and easier.

    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
