  • 8 Hour Pain Relief from Joint Pains & Muscle Pains

    Unlike other creams, rubs and patches, which create sensations on your skin to mask pain, ThermaCare® HeatWraps use real heat therapy to accelerate healing and relieve pain at the source – odor free – for up to 8 hours. Learn how ThermaCare®® compares to other pain relief patches and creams.

    Joints form the connections between bones. They provide support and help you get around. Damaged joints are painful and can slow you down. In one national survey, about one third of adults reported having joint pain within the past 30 days.1 Knee pain was the most common complaint, followed by shoulder and hip pain. But joint pain can affect any part of your body, from your ankles to your shoulders. As you age, painful joints become increasingly more common.

    ThermaCare® HeatWraps deliver long-lasting therapeutic heat that works with the body to temporarily relieve joint aches and pains. The heat therapy also helps increase flexibility to 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.
