About Deep Heat Pain Relief Back Patch
When to use & How it works

Deep Heat Pain Relief Back Patch provides targeted, long lasting, odourless, warming pain relief for back pain, muscular aches, pain, strains, spasms and joint stiffness. Can be used for hip, thigh, neck and shoulder pain.

The patch activates within 1 minute and will heat up within 5 minutes providing penetrating warmth for up to 8 hours. Once removed it can continue to provide pain relief for a further 8 hours.

Therapeutic heat from the Deep Heat Warming Belt helps reduce pain giving targeted pain relief right where you need it. Plus, penetrating heat helps relax stiff, sore, aching muscles and joints helping to restore movement. Heat increases blood flow to the affected area providing oxygen and nutrients to aid the healing process.

How to use

Apply only to clean, dry skin. Tear open the plastic packet, remove protective film from patch and apply patch to the affected area, adhesive side onto the skin or clothing.  Do not bandage over the patch.  Do not cut patch, massage, fold or wet the patch. Delicate of aging skin: apply adhesive side of patch to clothing.

To remove, slowly peel off the patch. After use, dispose in normal household waste.  Single use only.  DO NOT attempt to reheat in oven or microwave.  Speak to your doctor or pharmacist if your symptoms do not improve.

It is very easy to use, you just stick it on. I have sensitive skin and I was a little concerned about using this at first. Although it says on the box that it may cause irritation, it did nothing of the sort. At first I used it for 6 hours only. It did not get rid of my back pain, but it was very soothing. The patch heats up to a comfortable heat and it certainly helps to ease the pain, making it more tolerable. The next day I couldn't wait to use it. It did not get rid of my pain, but it certainly helped and I didn't need any other painkiller medication. In the future I'll always keep one at hand.

I found the patches helpful with discomfort if I was sitting for a while in the same position, for example whilst driving, although I had to remove the patch after a while as it made me feel quite hot. The patches were easy to apply and remove and did not affect my skin at all. This product was odour free, so could be used say in an office environment unlike some rub on creams which have a strong odour. Overall I would say that Deep Heat patches are good for mild pain relief, but unfortunately not a product I would rely on for ongoing pain.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-02-21</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-02-21" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="1052694292"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">JulesJess</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">Great Pain relief</span> <span itemprop="description">I suffer with chronic pain due to severe arthritis. I really do struggle to keep it under control. So I decided to try Deep heat pain relief patches, as I had never tried them before I put one on the back of my neck as that is my worse pain, I left it on to go to work, as I work on a computer I am usually in considerable pain by the end of the day. I started getting some relief fairly quickly and this lasted for approximately 5 hours.They are easy to apply and I found the patch comfortable to wear. The product was very effective and I am very happy with the relief they have provided.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-02-24</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-02-24" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="1052566132"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">3</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">Hockeymum1477</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">Mild relief</span> <span itemprop="description">I have quite severe pack pain, and found the DeepHeat heat pad gave me some mild relief from the pain. It was a lovely warmth, and did make it easier for me to move about. The heat lasted about 6 hours at a constant level. The one problem I found was that I had to restick it to my back a few times as it kept coming unstuck. Maybe that was due to my positioning of the patch at the base of my spine, it stayed better when I had underwear on to keep it in place. Overall though the patch worked well for me.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-02-19</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-02-19" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="1052761150"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">Kaz71</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">Huge relief!</span> <span itemprop="description">I got these and thought they might work for a wee while. I gave one to a friend who was having back pain too. What a good thin this proved to be! The heat lasted for about 10 hours, at the end it had cooled down but still worked. It stayed in place all day on the small of my back, but was still easy to take off without leaving a sticky residue in my skin. Myself and friend found it really helped the pain and gave us great relief. We will definitely be buying these again.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-02-27</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-02-27" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="1052490291"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">Cooptime</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">WOW</span> <span itemprop="description">i received my pack on 13/2/19 i actually tried one within an hour of receiving, i was really really surprised at how quickly it dispensed its magic, i suffer with severe pain especially in this cold weather, it didnt take the pain away but again i was surprised how it gave me some relief around my lower back area, so much so that my day was easier to manage, i would buy these patches and am willing to recommend widely, thanks for the chance to try, im very impressed :)</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-02-15</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-02-15" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="1052877005"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">4</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">Loopy227</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">Loved this product</span> <span itemprop="description">I received this product with a quick delivery. After trying so many creams/patches including some from my Gp I was sceptical about whether these patches would work. I have already purchased a further two packs as I was impressed with the heat and comfort of them. I have had muscular problems in my back for a long period of time now. When I have this patch on it really does help to relax and sooth the pain and tension in the muscles. Great product and worth the money</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-03-05</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-03-05" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="1052536925"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">4</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">Greavsie</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">Really helped my lower back pain!</span> <span itemprop="description">I have constant lower back pain due to fibromyalgia and i took one of these patches to work to apply during my shift. I really liked the warmth it gave on my lower back, it lasted a few hours but unfortunately it fell off in the end but the heat really helped my back feel better, it didn't remove the pain but it did ease it. I also tried one in my shoulder as I have tendonitis in the rotator cuff but it didn't feel warm there or didn't ease that pain so wouldn't use it there again. I will use the remaining two patches for my back as it felt much better in that location. Very easy to apply and the general stickiness is good. My job is quite active so maybe I'd use them again when I'm relaxing and not moving around all the time. All in all, I did like how it felt when it was working and I would consider using them again in the future.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-02-17</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-02-17" /> </div> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> if (document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection')) { document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection').style.display = 'none'; } </script> <!--end-reviews--> <!--begin-pagination--> <ul id="bvseo-paginationSection"> <li class="bvseo-paginationItem"><a class="bvseo-paginationLink" href="https://www.mentholatum.co.uk/item/17/DeepHeat/Pain-Relief-Back-Patch.html?bvstate=pg:2/ct:r">Pain Relief Back Patch Reviews - page 2</a></li> </ul> <!--end-pagination--> <ul id="BVSEO_meta" style="display:none!important"> <li data-bvseo="bvDateModified">y_2022, m_8, d_16, h_20</li> <li data-bvseo="ps">bvseo_bulk, prod_bvrr, vn_bulk_3.0.32</li> <li data-bvseo="cp">cp_1, bvpage1</li> <li data-bvseo="co">co_hasreviews, tv_0, tr_48</li> <li data-bvseo="cf">loc_en_GB, sid_5011501006731, prod, sort_[SortEntry(order=RELEVANCE, direction=DESCENDING)]</li> <li data-bvseo="diagnostics">clientName_mentholatum-uk</li> </ul> <!--end-bvseo-reviews--> <ul id="BVSEOSDK_meta" style="display:none !important;"> <li data-bvseo="sdk">bvseo_sdk, p_sdk, 3.2.1</li> <li data-bvseo="sp_mt">CLOUD, getReviews, 97.76ms</li> <li data-bvseo="ct_st">REVIEWS, PRODUCT</li> </ul>
