How to use ThermaCare® Joint Pain Therapy HeatWraps
Follow these helpful tips to get the most out of ThermaCare® Joint Pain Therapy HeatWraps.
Place the wrap flat on your skin with the dark side of the heat cells facing your pain point.
Press the adhesive side on to your skin. Then make adjustments to firmly “lock” it in place, but don’t over tighten it.
Watch out when handling the adhesive side so you don’t get anything like lotions, lint or hair on it that will prevent the adhesive from sticking.*
Try These Tips For Relieving Knee Pain
If you’re injured in any way, you should give your knee a rest. The RICE method (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) along with a heat wrap like ThermaCare® is enough to manage most minor joint aches. If your pain is mild or moderate and you’ve been diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis, some specific exercises may help the joint feel better, in addition to wearing a heat wrap for knee arthritis. The goal is to increase the strength in your leg muscles, like your quads, and slow or stop the progression of knee osteoarthritis. Ask your doctor if it’s safe to try the following moves:
- Do mini-squats. With your feet shoulder-width apart, stand behind a chair. Hold the top of the chair and slowly bend down just a few inches. Hold the pose for 6 seconds, making sure your knees don’t go past your toes. Tighten your glutes as you straighten your knees.
- Use a resistance band. Tie a resistance band into a figure eight with 2 loops. Sit down in a chair and put 1 loop around each ankle. With 1 foot planted on the floor, raise the other leg until it’s straight and parallel to the floor. Hold that pose for 6 seconds and switch legs. After that, you can do the opposite move: With 1 foot planted on the floor, slide the other leg backward under the chair, as far as you can. Again, hold that pose for 6 seconds before switching legs.
- Swim some laps. If you’re in pain, high-impact motions like jumping or sprinting on a hard surface are a bad idea. That doesn’t mean you have to skip your cardio. Get some laps in at a pool or try water-walking. It will get your heart rate up and challenge your muscles while keeping the pressure off your knee.
