How to use ThermaCare® Neck Pain Therapy HeatWraps
Follow these helpful tips to get the most out of ThermaCare® Neck Pain Therapy HeatWraps.
Make sure the skin where you’re applying the wrap is clean, dry, and free of any makeup, moisturizer or lotions.
Lay the wrap flat on your skin. Make sure the darker heat cells are placed toward your skin.
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.*
Tips For Relieving Neck Pain
Who hasn’t slept on their neck the wrong way, only to wake up to debilitating neck pain? Try some of these tips in addition to wearing a heat wrap for neck pain from ThermaCare®.
- Try Gentle Stretching: Start with neck rolls, moving your neck from side to side in a downward “U” shape, or simply nodding your head up and down, and turning it all the way to face the left and right.
- Get A Massage: In some cases a massage can help relax and loosen your neck, one study even found that massages can help with neck pain from arthritis. Just be sure that you’re not experiencing severe pain or any spasms.
- Get A New Pillow: That’s right, your pillow might be the culprit! The National Sleep Foundation recommends replacing your pillow every year or two to maintain support for your head and neck, or you might have the wrong shape of pillow for how you sleep. If you’re a side sleeper, your pillow should take up the space between your head and mattress, keeping your head straight. If you’re a back sleeper, you shouldn’t feel any sort of incline or decline when you lay your head down.
- Beware of Teck-Neck: “To avoid neck pain, be sure to hold your phone, tablet, or book up at eye level to keep your neck completely straight,” says Geno Mayes, DPT, a physical therapist and owner of Iron Physical Therapy in Caldwell, New Jersey. “If that’s not possible, try to only look down with your eyes.”
