  • I have a lot of back, neck and shoulder problems, and this is an item I picked up during a painful spell to avoid having to use pain medicine
  • I have mentioned before that I like to use the ThermaCare Heat Wraps when my neck and shoulders are particularly sore, but they are disposable and sometimes, I just don't feel like going out and replacing them
  • I decided to try out a more permanent wrap, which is why I picked up this product
  • I think the material is a bit cheap feeling - something vaguely reminiscent of flannel - and they could have found something softer for the skin, but for the price it's not bad
  • I would recommend having one of these around even if you do choose to use other heating/cooling products because it's a good value and melds into sore muscles

      I have a lot of back, neck and shoulder problems, and this is an item I picked up during a painful spell to avoid having to use pain medicine. It’s a pretty good product that has the versatility of being hot or cold, and it’s a good price for something that is reusable.

      I have mentioned before that I like to use the ThermaCare Heat Wraps when my neck and shoulders are particularly sore, but they are disposable and sometimes, I just don’t feel like going out and replacing them. I decided to try out a more permanent wrap, which is why I picked up this product. It’s approximately 6″ by 12″ which is much larger than the ThermaCare Heat Wraps


      meaning I get more therapeutic relief to a larger surface of my body. The heating/cooling pack itself is a clay material sealed inside of plastic, and its intended to stay in this packaging. You can place the pack in the microwave or the fridge (time instructions are provided in the packaging) and it typically doesn’t take too long to achieve the proper temperature. Of course, this takes more premeditated thought than the instant gratification of ThermaCare Heat Wraps, but you can use this one over and over again. The pack fits inside of a fabric wrap that has a velcro pouch for securing the heating/cooling pad to your body. I think the material is a bit cheap feeling - something vaguely reminiscent of flannel - and they could have found something softer for the skin, but for the price it’s not bad. The stretchy strap is also a bit uncomfortable on the skin, but unless you are tying it overly-tight, it is relatively secure and comfortable.

      I like that this patch is long-lasting and that it has the ability to be hot or cold, though I don’t use it for cold nearly as much. The instructions are simple to follow, and it doesn’t take long to heat it - cooling takes a bit longer. What really stands out about this product over temporary packs is that the clay is a malleable material that provides enough weight to sink into muscles and ...

      get to the root of the problem as opposed to simply exuding heat onto the surface of the skin.The main problem, however with this product is that it tends to lose heat rather quickly when compared to ThermaCare’s disposable wraps. The instructions mention that the pack maintains a “therapeutic level of heat” for about 20-30 minutes before leveling out to a comfortable heat that lasts an hour. I can definitely notice when it goes from deeply penetrating muscle aches to simply being a soothing warmth on my back. Although the clay conforms to my body better, it’s unfortunate that I have to get up so much more frequently to reheat this pack. A cool pack also lasts for a similar
      amount of time, but I typically can’t handle the cold for as long, so it doesn’t bother me as much.

      This product is readily available online and at drug stores and it only costs about $15. Compared to the throw away patches that are about $6 for three, you will quickly make your money back by using this, even if you need to reheat this one. I would recommend having one of these around even if you do choose to use other heating/cooling products because it’s a good value and melds into sore muscles. Make sure you have a microwave because its intended for microwave heating, but otherwise, this is a good product for helping relieve muscle aches most anywhere on the body.
