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.
