How ThermaCare® Works

HeatWraps: Healing with Heat

From hot baths to heating pads to hot water bottles, heat therapy is a well-known remedy to help ease muscular pain, and reduce soreness and inflammation. ThermaCare® technology combines iron, oxygen, water and salt in single-use HeatWraps to produce real heat and stimulate healing right where you need it. The patented technology in Thermacare® HeatWraps works by allowing real heat to penetrate damaged tissue, increasing blood flow to the source of pain to accelerate healing and relieve pain. It works differently than other patches and creams, which mask pain instead of healing it.

“The advent of therapeutic heat wraps (e.g. ThermaCare®) has revolutionized thermotherapy,” wrote W. Steven Pray, Ph.D., a professor and author of the respected pharmacists’ guide, Nonprescription Product Therapeutics (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2006).1

Pray and other medical experts point to several principal areas where heat wraps such as ThermaCare® have been game changers. The biggest innovation? Portability. One study published in the American Pain Society equates the benefit of a heat wrap with that of warm whirlpool therapy except that the heat wrap lets its user be on the go.2

“Heat wraps worn in direct contact with the skin ... enable patients to remain mobile and active while receiving treatment,” reads the study called, ”A New Look at Heat Treatment for Pain Disorders.”’(APS Bulletin • Volume 15, Number 1, Winter 2005). “As a result, patients retain control over their own care and pain management. This can increase both treatment time at home and allow them to participate in other activities.”3

The studies say other key innovations include:

  • Low-level heat provided by ThermaCare® HeatWraps may be safer than that obtained with potentially hazardous electric heating pads
  • ThermaCare® HeatWraps maintain the heat at a constant temperature over the 8-hour wearing time
  • ThermaCare® HeatWraps can be worn during work or recreational activities so that the patient has an uninterrupted
  • Continuous relief

Why Cold Therapy?

Delivers up to one hour of constant comfortable cold, where and when you need it

How does it work? 
 
If you've ever sprained an ankle or bumped something too hard, you've probably applied cold to reduce swelling and provide pain relief. ThermaCare® Cold Wraps take cold therapy to the next level. The unique TargetTemp Insulation Technology™ delivers a constant and comfortable cold for effective relief plus healing, without the icy shock of traditional cold packs. 
 
It does this by constricting blood vessels and decreasing fluid buildup that leads to swelling. ThermaCare® Cold Wraps also help slow the release of pain impulses to the brain, providing effective relief where you need it most.
 
For pain related to sports or repetitive stress: 
 
The RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation is frequently used to relieve pain and reduce swelling. Rest and elevate the injured area. The use of a ThermaCare® Cold Wrap instead of ice is a convenient way to provide sustained cold therapy to the affected area. 

Muscle Pain

  • See how therapeutic warmth works with the body to help relieve muscular aches and stiffness

 

Tight muscles in the upper body (neck, shoulders and arms) can contribute to pain and stiffness. Versatile ThermaCare® Neck, Wrist & Shoulder HeatWraps are designed to conform to the contours of these upper-body areas and deliver 8 hours of therapeutic heat.

Often the underlying cause of pain is tight muscles. ThermaCare® Lower Back & Hip HeatWraps deliver up to 16 hours of therapeutic heat that gets to the source of pain. These single-use HeatWraps are designed to relax sore, tight muscles and accelerate healing, helping make body movement freer and easier.

What You Can Do

Combine the heat therapy of ThermaCare® with the following:

  • Perform range-of-motion and strengthening exercises while pain symptoms are present*
  • Move on to low-stress exercises (e.g., walking, swimming or cycling) after pain symptoms have improved (typically 2 to 4 weeks)
  • Avoid heavy lifting, strenuous exercise and uncomfortable positions
  • Use medication as directed
  • Maintain normal activity
  • Consult your doctor

Joint Pain

Joints form the connections between bones. They provide support and help you get around. Damaged joints are painful and can slow you down. In one national survey, about one third of adults reported having joint pain within the past 30 days.1 Knee pain was the most common complaint, followed by shoulder and hip pain. But joint pain can affect any part of your body, from your ankles to your shoulders. As you age, painful joints become increasingly more common.

ThermaCare® HeatWraps deliver long-lasting therapeutic heat that works with the body to temporarily relieve joint aches and pains. The heat therapy also helps increase flexibility to make body movement freer and easier.
