ThermaCare heat wraps for Knees are a fantastic way to deal with knee pain, whether chronic or one-time in jury or tenderness.
The wraps have sticky pads on one side that adhere to the side / back of your knee, and the air-activated heat packets fold across the knee and are secured with 2 velcro straps.
The heat comes from the wrap being exposed to the air. It heats up fully in about an hour, and lasts for up to 8 hours to provide long lasting warmth and pain relief.
The wrap does not heat up as much as I would like it to, but it is warm enough to grant muscle and joint relief for a good part of the day. It is easy to apply and stays on even with vigorous movement. They are great for overnight use as well.
ThermaCare somed in several flavors for all your pain needs - they have a pad for menstral pain, for upper back and shoulder pain, for lower back pain. the wraps can be used on other areas of the body as well - the knee wrap also works on the elbow, but depending on your size may be a bit too big for use on other areas of the body.
ThermaCare wraps for knees are a fantastic way to warm your joints and soothe away pain for up to 8 hours with no drugs or possible side affects, other than a desire to use them more often!
