Shoulder Abdomen or Back Moist Heat Therapy Wrap
The microwaveable Universal 6.5” x 18” Moist Heat Therapy Wrap including one 3" x 26" hook & loop closure elastic belt to hold the wrap comfortably on the body part.
Microwavable moist heat wraps provide convenient and effective deep penetrating moist heat therapy.
This professional, quality wrap uses therapeutic, non-organic beads that collect and hold moisture from humidity in the air. No water needs to be added.
Because the beads are non-organic, they will never break down, decay, or develop an odour.
The wrap is constructed of soft, all-natural cotton fleece on the side nearest the skin, and an insulated multi-ply fabric with vapor barrier on the outside to direct the moisture and heat toward the body.
Universal design for many applications - for temporary relief from arthritis and rheumatic pain, muscle strains & spasms, headaches, migraines, cramps and more! Use on the limbs, abdomen, back, knees, feet, ankles, elbows, head or shoulder.
Moist heat therapy is commonly prescribed for relief of chronic pain.
To use the wrap:
* Fold the Universal 6.5” x 18” Moist Heat Wrap so the white fleece side is inside the fold, with the black side out. Place in a clean microwave, alone, for the recommended time period.
* Remove from the microwave and test for temperature - if the wrap is too hot, allow it to cool before using. If it's not hot enough, refold and put back in the microwave for an additional 10 seconds. Retest.
* Position the wrap on the targeted body part and secure with hook and loop closures, or use the adjustable, detachable hook and loop elastic belt.
* The wrap will stay in place while delivering therapeutic moist heat and allowing freedom of movement.
For acute pain, use cold therapy during the first 48 hours and alternate with moist heat after the swelling goes down. Use moist heat or heat therapy for chronic pain. Please Note: Doctors typically recommend the application of cold or heat therapy not exceed 20 minutes at a time. Allow 20 minutes between applications.
