Are you tired of constantly heating up hot water bottles, gel packs wheat bags to relieve your back pain, sore muscles, or joint pain? Here are six reasons to choose Heat Wraps instead.
Heat Wraps are more convenient to use than hot water bottles, gel packs or wheat bags because they are easy to apply and require no preparation time. Unlike hot water bottles or wheat bags, which need to be boiled or microwaved, Heat Wraps are air activated and provide a long-lasting, low-level heat for up to 12 hours. This allows you to continue your daily activities while receiving the benefits of heat therapy.
Heat Wraps provide targeted heat therapy to specific areas of the body. Unlike hot water bottles or wheat bags, which can be difficult to position correctly, heat wraps can be applied to the lower back or wrapped around the knees, wrists, or elbows, ensuring that the heat is applied exactly where it is needed.
Longer Lasting Heat
Unlike hot water bottles and wheat bags, FlexEze Heat Wraps provide a continuous, low level of heat for up to 12 hours without the need for constant reheating. This sets them apart from other forms of heat which deliver high temperatures for a shorter period.
Heat Wraps are ideal for people who are on the move or have a busy lifestyle. Unlike hot water bottles or wheat bags, which can be bulky and difficult to carry around, Heat Wraps can be worn discreetly under clothing. A major advantage of Heat Wraps is that they enable patients to keep moving, a fundamental principle in physiotherapy to promote recovery from lower back pain.
With FlexEze Heat Wraps, you can always have heat therapy available while on the go by keeping a packet in your daily bag or glove box compartment. Simply open the packet to air activate the Heat Wrap and apply.
Heat Wraps are safer than hot water bottles or wheat bags as they deliver continuous low-level heat for up to 12 hours rather than high temperatures for a shorter time. They are less likely to leak, cause burns or scalds, and removes the risk of spilling hot water or causing a fire by overheating.
Staying active while receiving low level heat to the lower back has been demonstrated in multiple randomised control trials to reduce back pain and promote recovery.
Latest treatment guidelines in Australia and around the world now recommend non-pharmacological approaches for low back pain. Evidence demonstrating the lack of efficacy for use of paracetamol and prescription pain killers in the treatment of acute and chronic low back pain has shifted the focus toward physical therapies and heat wrap therapy as first line defences in low back pain treatment.
Heat Wraps are an essential recommendation in Australia’s Clinical Care Standard for Low Back Pain.
