The #1 Pharmacist Recommended Brand Three Years in a Row

Recognition from Leading Industry Experts

There’s no question. The deep penetrating heat of ThermaCare® HeatWraps accelerates healing of sore muscles, aches and pains. That’s why – for the third year in a row – a nationwide survey of thousands of pharmacists voted ThermaCare® the #1 Pharmacist Recommended Thermal Relief Brand.

 
  • Voted #1 3 years in a row – 2015, 2016, & 2017
  • Thousands of pharmacists nationwide surveyed to pinpoint the best recommendation for thermal relief.

Why Heat Therapy?

ThermaCare® HeatWraps penetrate deep to the source of pain, to accelerate healing right where it hurts

You may not have heard the words “heat therapy” before, but you surely have seen it in action. Hot baths, hot water bottles, heating pads, Jacuzzis—all of these are examples of heat therapies that have been used for centuries to combat backaches, muscle and joint pain. In fact, clinical data shows that soreness is reduced significantly 72 hours post-exercise without heat, but much faster with the application of local heat.1

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

Consistent heat:

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.

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

How ThermaCare® Compares

See for yourself how ThermaCare® compares with other pain relief patches and creams

Real Heat, Real Healing

While some other pain relief patches and creams feel warm, they do not actually deliver heat.

Many medicated patches on the market today (including Icy Hot® Patch) work as counterirritants—agents that draw attention away from pain by creating an alternate sensation on the skin. Some cause blood vessels to expand, creating a heating sensation. Others create a cooling sensation that may result in a heating or burning feeling. But in the end, that’s all they are: a feeling.

It’s a fact their makers acknowledge. The Icy Hot® marketing message plainly states that Icy Hot®creams and patches “create… sensations that divert attention from the actual pain and help block the pain signals being sent to the brain.”1

But ThermaCare® works differently. ThermaCare® delivers a therapeutic, effective level of heat that accelerates healing at the source of pain. The heat from our patented heat cells increases blood flow, which brings oxygen and nutrients to damaged tissue, relieving pain and accelerating healing. ThermaCare® is free of odors, and it conforms to your body’s natural shape so it comfortably stays in place, even on the go.

The Real Heat Test

ThermaCare® delivers heat that penetrates deep, warming the muscle right where it hurts—to provide pain relief, relax, soothe and unlock tight muscles while accelerating healing. We tested ThermaCare®against Icy Hot® products to see which generated the most heat.

The results? ThermaCare® is hot; Icy Hot® is not.

In key areas measured—skin and muscle temperature and skin blood flow—only ThermaCare®increased skin and muscle temperature. In fact, the other products DECREASED both skin and muscle temperature and had little effect on skin blood flow.

 

About the case study:

On any one of 3 given days, clinical researchers applied one of 3 products on the skin for 2 hours (ThermaCare®, a leading pain relief patch or a leading pain relief cream). Skin temperature and muscle temperature were recorded continuously over a 2-hour period. Skin blood flow was measured at various time points over a 2-hour period.
