  • 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
