Thermacare Heat Wraps effectively deliver heat to areas in pain. I'm wearing one right now, as my back has begun spasming again. The heat is strong; if you are sensitive to heat, you may consider wearing an under-layer so that it does not come into direct contact with your skin. It is also long-lasting: I believe the packaging says 8 hours, but I get relief for probably 12 hours from these wraps.

The only downside is the fit: recently updated, the "improvement" has actually made these less fitting for me. I am a classic "small" with 35" hips at their widest point, and yet the "S/M" is tight on me. I ordered both the S/M and L/XL thinking that the L/XL could be for my husband, but I will be using that size as well! The L/XL enables me to place the wrap more precisely without it riding up or scrunching uncomfortably. The S/M fits, but it does scrunch, and, after several hours of wear, it can irritate my skin. The L/XL has no irritation.
However, as a petite woman, I wonder who the L/XL will fit! If it fits me comfortably, what about a larger man? I think Thermacare needs to work some more on its sizing. Otherwise, this product is very helpful for back pain.

Disappointed!

Perhaps I got a defective box, but these generated NO heat at all. I am very disappointed as I was looking forward to the relief described by the advertisements.

Good but Geared Toward Male Bodies

  • Easy To Administer

  • Relieves Pain

Cons

  • Does Not Fit Female Curve

Best Uses

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain

Comments about ThermaCare Air-Activated Heatwraps, Back & Hip, S/M, 2 ea:

I had thought the back/hip wrap had been redesigned with adhesive tabs instead of the velcro belt-like wrap; however, in spite of directions on the company site that talk about adhesive, the only product available has been the older wraparound version. The wraparound is unfortunately geared more for a straight-up-and-down male body and does not function well on women with waists and hips, and as a result, the band tends to roll and scrunch.

Comments about ThermaCare Air-Activated Heatwraps, Back & Hip, S/M, 2 ea:

The heat from this product is really good and lasts many hours. However, the product is like a belt, with velcro to hold it together. It did not fit me at all! I ended up cutting off the straps and just using the pad inside a girdle.

      My back was once broken in several places so when I do too much I can get a lot of pain. The Thermacare Wraps help so much and feel so comforting - so much better than trying to keep a heating pad wrapped around my lower back. They really help me to keep going.

                Buy Thermacare (original.) This product is great. DON'T mess with the imitators. I have degenerative disc disease and 2 herniated discs. Thermacare gives immediate relief for back spasms. There are several similar generic products, but they don't offer the uniform heat that's so helpful. One warning: if you have dry or sensitive skin, be VERY careful with the amount of time you leave one on and pay close attention to any possible burning.

                  I used this product for my menstrual period cramps...it really helps!!! It's better than the patch because I can alternate where I want the heat...front or back.
