What are Deep Heat Patches?
Deep Heat Patches help to relieve back pain or other aches and pains by providing comforting warmth that helps to ease stiff and sore muscles and joints. These heat packs can provide pain relief for up to 16 hours, making it ideal for those who need long-lasting relief without medication.
How will this product help to relieve my pain?
Deep Heat Patches use heat therapy to help to ease sore and aching muscles and joints. These patches heat up by themselves without the need for a microwave or other heater, radiating heat through your muscles as they do. This helps to increase blood flow to the affected area, providing oxygen and nutrients that help to speed up the healing process. The heat also helps to ease stiffness and restore movement in your muscles and joints.
What kinds of pain can heat therapy help to relieve?
Although these Deep Heat Patches are the perfect remedy for back pain, they can also be used for other kinds of aches and pains throughout the body. Some of the other most popular reasons to use these heat patches include:
- Muscle pain
- Joint pain and stiffness
- Minor sporting injuries
How to use Deep Heat Patches
Before use, make sure affected area is clean and dry. Remove your Deep Heat Patch from its plastic sachet, remove the protective film, and apply the patch to the affected area. The patch will activate within one minute of the sachet being opened and will head up within 5 minutes. If you have delicate or ageing skin, apply your Deep Heat Patches to clothing instead of directly to the skin. Do not attach to delicate or thin fabrics, as this may damage the material.
