Description

Our Thermo Dr microwavable lower back heat pad provides a reusable, soothing and pain relieving thermal heat for your back muscles and joints.

Clean UK wheat: Our ThermoDr wheat bags contain only 100% natural wheat grown in the UK and soothing lavender. All our wheat is thoroughly cleaned to ensure that no bugs or mites are present in your wheat bag.

  • Soft fleecey material
  • Available in RED or BLACK
  • Elasticated straps with velcro fastening
  • Full instructions included
  • Ideal for arthritic joints, lower back ache, sciatica and muscle spasm

Heat is traditionally used to help with the treatment of muscle and joint pain particularly arthritic aches and pains. I often advise my patients about the benefits of heat to assist with their recovery and pain relief. The body wraps are soft to the touch and the elasticated velcro fastenings allow you to comfortably position the heat pad over the muscle or area of your lower back requiring the benefit of a soothing heat.

  • Heats up in just 90 seconds

Once heated in the microwave and fastened in place with the elasticated velcro straps you can easily and comfortably move about.

Ideal hot or cold therapy for:

  • Lower back pain
  • Period pain
  • Perfect for a soothing relaxing heat
  • Spinal arthritis
  • Muscle spasms
  • Sciatica

Our wheat bags can also be used as a cold compress. Simply pop them into the freezer to treat your strains and sprains.

  • Class 1 Medical Device which complies with British Safety Standard BS 8433:2004
  • Ideal to be used as a reusable cold compress to treat strains and sprains in the lower back

I found this heat pack very comforting when I was suffering badly with muscular problems in my back. . Heating in the microwave is quick and easy, and the straps to hold the pad in place are very convenient. Very quick efficient delivery and reasonable price.

Excellent product. Works well and keeps its heat for over an hour. My microwave is an 850w, so I tried 85 secs and then 90 secs. The 90 secs was the best. Definitely recommend.

I'm sorry this review is so late. The heat pad is very successful and has helped ease the stiffness in my back. Being able to anchor it in place and even walk around without it falling on the floor is a huge bonus. Thank you! Valerie

Due to working from home I have had lower back and shoulder aches, this head pad is excellent for getting the heat exactly where I want it to ease the aches, the Velcro strap is ideal for keeping it in place and the choice of colour is great , I went for the red. Can also wear this when you go out and it can be covered with a jumper or tracksuit top , coat etc without it showing that you are wearing it

I purchased this wheat bag to replace one we had owned for years. With the velcro fastening and the soft touch it is a far better product and is easier to position on the exact troublesome area.

Hi Rubina, thank you for your review.

I used the lower back heat pad to help ease agonising muscle spasms. The problem still required heavy duty painkillers, but the pad was very comforting nonetheless.

Malcolm
StarStarStarStarStar
Dear Malcolm, thanks so much for submitting your review for one of our most popular heat pads which can also be used as an ice pack by simply placing it in the freezer for an hour or so. Ice is ideal for new sprains but for chronic back and joint pain heat will normally help reduce pain and stiffness.

I bought this for my daughter who needed something that she could wear whilst doing her exams. We're really pleased with this product . The fact that it comes with a belt makes it extremely convenient as she can wear it most of the time. It's comfortable to wear and alleviates the pain.
Marie
StarStarStarStarStar
Dear Marie, Thank you for taking the time to share your product feedback. I would agree that the belt really is helpful, I recently bought one for my mum for the very same reason that the belt helps keep it in place even when she is moving about.
Bronwyn (Customer Care)
This is exactly what I was looking for. A cosy wheatbag with a strong elastic velcroed waistband so that I am not confined to an armchair when using it.

Questions
Question from Sue Silk
Hi Tim What is the maximum waist size of this belt? thanks Sue Silk
Answer from Tim (Registered Osteopath) (28/02/18)
Dear Sue, the maximum comfortable waist size would be 42 inches. The straps are elasticated and would stretch a little more but this may prove to be a little tight in excess of 42".
