Patented heat cells for deep penetrating heat
Advanced Back Pain Relief - Up to 16* hours pain relief when used as directed on side of pack.
Thermacare is clinically proven to provide therapeutic muscle penetrating heat and long lasting pain relief for up to 16 hours. That's up to 8 hours while you wear it, plus up to an additional 8 hours of relief after you take it off.
How thermacare works:
- The constant heat provided by thermacare increases blood flow to tissues, giving analgesic effects which last even after the wrap has been removed. As muscles relax, more oxygen is provided to the damaged tissues, helping to restore aching muscles.
- Thermacare improves flexibility to help you move more freely.
