ThermaCare Lower Back & Hip L/XL, 10 HeatWraps
What Makes ThermaCare Different? It Heals, with Heat
ThermaCare® Lower Back & Hip HeatWraps are specially designed to fit your back and hip area so you can experience long-lasting heat relief throughout your day.
Back pain is often caused by tight, injured or sore muscles. ThermaCare® Lower Back & Hip HeatWraps deliver 8 hours of continuous, therapeutic heat and relieves pain for an additional 8 hours after you take it off. In fact, the American College of Physicians (ACP) recommends real heat as a first defense against acute lower back pain. These single-use wraps are designed to provide pain relief at home or on the go. ThermaCare® has patented heat cells that penetrate deep to increase circulation to promote healing, while relieving pain for up to 16 hours. That’s 8 hours of heat while you wear it, plus an additional 8 hours of relief after you take if off. So you don't just feel better, you get better.
ThermaCare® HeatWraps deliver therapeutic healing exactly where you need it.
Whether it's muscle or joint aches, strains, sprains or arthritis that's causing your pain, look to ThermaCare® to find relief.

Watch this video to learn how ThermaCare® relieves pain and accelerates healing.
Heat is effective. It penetrates deep, warming the muscle right where it hurts—to relax, soothe and unlock tight muscles.
Here’s how it works:
When heat is applied to your skin, it actually reduces the sensation of pain.
Heat stimulates thermo receptors, which block your body’s pain transmitters from sending pain signals to your brain
Heat increases circulation to the injured or sore area, which means more oxygen and nutrients are sent to the damaged tissue
Heat helps stretch soft tissues and relax sore muscles which promotes flexibility and decreases stiffness
It once was believed that 20 minutes of high-level heat followed by 20 minutes of no heat was the most effective treatment for sore muscles. However, clinical studies show the use of continuous low-level heat therapy, like that found in ThermaCare® HeatWraps, is effective for pain management.
Tips for Using ThermaCare
Ensure skin in application area is clean, dry and free of makeup, recently applied skin moisturizer, lotions and other topical analgesics.
Position wrap by lightly pressing tabs into place on your skin. Make any needed adjustments and rub over adhesive tabs firmly to "lock" in place.
Use care when handling the adhesive to tabs so you don't get anything on them that will prevent the adhesive from working (e.g. lotions, lint, hair, makeup, etc.).
