Great BaclkRelief

5

These Thermacare wraps give me the most relief for my back than any other product I've ever tried. I wear them frequently as I have disintegrating discs in my back which causes muscle strain when I walk or stand. I put one on in the morning (it remains hidden underneath my clothing) and I generally get all day relief. You wear it for about eight hours but the relief lasts for at least ten hours after you remove the wrap which gives me relief all day long. I especially love the Extra large size as it covers my entire back, providing relief for the entire back. Once I discovered these, I greatly reduced the amount of pain medication I need to take and when I do need something, the pain is relieved by over the counter medication instead of narcotics. Effectiveness Most of the time, I get relief within ten minutes or so. Ease of Use Very easy to use. Merely remove it from its pouch and wrap around your waist.

Travel savior!

I have fibromyalgia and use heat frequently. At home, I have the ability to use an electric heating pad or heated mattress pad. I don't have that luxury at work in a middle school. My job means that I am moving around the building throughout the day. When at work or traveling to see my family, who live five hours away (by car,) I always carry Thermacare wraps to fight the pain. There is nothing easier to use when you have to move around at work or when your back gets stiff from traveling. I even keep a few stored at work or in my suitcases so that they are available if and when I need one! Effectiveness These wraps help loosen up stiff joints and relieve pain from sore muscles. Thermacare wraps provide nice, soothing warmth that lasts all day. While these wraps may not get as warm as an electric heating pad, there is enough steady heat to provide some relief. They are a lifesaver when you need them. Ease of Use So easy! Open the package and wrap it on the body where there's pain. The velcro makes it easy to adjust and move up/down as needed.

ThermaCare Lower Back & Hip HeatWraps

5

I have fibromyalgia and I suffer from almost constant pain. For a long time it was difficult for me to get any relief at all. Most pain medication doesn't do a whole lot for me. A friend of mine suggested these Heat wraps. I was hesitant to try them, because nothing had worked in the past but finally I said what the heck. I applied the wrap to my back and hips under my clothing one morning. I was so surprised at the pain relief I felt from this wrap. It helped to loosen up my tight aching muscles almost immediately. I assumed it wouldn't last that long, but to my surprise the heat actually did last eight hours. All day the wrap kept my back muscles relaxed and warm and surprisingly pain free. It was the first day in years that I didn't have pain in my back. Even after the wrap stopped giving heat, it still kept my back relaxed right up until I went to bed. I was hooked on these wraps and I use them every day. They've made my life so much better than it used to be.

Saved my life and my back

I hurt my back a couple of years ago and wish I had known about these sooner. They are amazing because you can feel the medicated patch working right away. It gets hot and cold all at the same time. It smells like icy hot and lasts for hours. They stay on really well. I always felt relief from some of the pain. It won't take it completely away but it does help to ease the pain. Effectiveness You will feel it working instantly. Ease of Use Just peel off the plastic backing and you are good to put it on your back.

Gave me much needed relief

When I was around 30 I found out that I had broke L5's in my back from a car accident. I was told that no surgery could be done to help improve it. I did physical therapy for a long time, but nothing really ever gave me relief again. When I became pregnant with my son I developed even more back pain. The middle of my back was starting to hurt now because it was going to overcompensate for my lower back pain. The pain was unbearable at times. I was using a microwave wrap, but I constantly had to reheat it. I found the ThermaCare back heat wraps one day in CVS. It worked so well. It by no means took all the pain away, but I was able to get relief. On really bad days, I would have my husband rub icy hot on my back and then put the ThermaCare wraps on. When I was pregnant with twins, my back pain got even worse. I would wear the ThermaCare wraps almost everyday. It truly was a life saver. They stayed put really well and you can adjust them very easily. This product really helped me in a time when I so desperately needed it.

All day heat for pain relief that moves with you!

I love this product! I suffer from chronic pain and sometimes heat is the only thing that helps. You can't carry a heating pad around all day with you, but you can wear this air activated wrap. The quality of this product has improved from its original wrap. The Velcro closure is stronger and stays secure all day. Effectiveness Sometimes wearing a wrap is the only thing that helps control my pain. After you open the package it begins to heat up rapidly and stays at a nice warm temperature for eight to sixteen hours. You do need to be careful, especially if you have sensitive skin. I have found that if I have too much pressure applied (like falling asleep on my back) for too long of a time, I can get a slight burn. like a mild sunburn. This rarely happens but can happen. Ease of Use Very easy to wrap around your back and secures well with a Velcro closure. It is important to select the correct size. Comes in small/medium and large/extra large. If the size is too small, it will cause the elastic infused material in the waist band to stretch too far and after awhile it starts breaking down.

It helped my back pain and made movement more manageable

There were days when I had a back injury that would be unbearable. The TheraCare Lower Back & Hip HeatWraps definitely helped. They lasted throughout the entire day. These are a little pricey, but you cannot really put a price on your back feeling better. Effectiveness It took away most of my back pain or at least made the pain more bearable. Ease of Use You just wrap it around your body.

Need to get back into the swing of things?

As an active young man, I can't show any weakness so when I'm sore from a hard night of partying I turn to the ThermaCare Lower Back and Hip Heatwraps. The soothing heat penetrates my muscles to help my back feel renewed and pain free. So after rough days or nights ThermaCare is the way to go.

Great for pain relief on the go!

As a person who suffers from chronic back pain and has an equal determination to perform my job properly at work, ThermaCare heat wraps for the lower back + hip area provide the perfect solution. Alongside several of their other heat wraps, I made sure to always bring a pack to work so that I could put one on when my back pain got bad. The wraps are comfortable, flexible (you can easily adjust the velcro), and can last all-day/a whole shift and make performing regular tasks much more manageable.
