Thera-Temp Ankle & Foot Moist Heat Therapy Wrap
The microwaveable Thera-Temp Ankle & Foot Moist Heat Therapy Wrap has a hook & loop closure tab to attach it securely and comfortably to your foot or ankle.
Microwavable moist heat wraps provide convenient and effective heat therapy.
These professional, quality wraps use therapeutic, non-organic beads that collect and hold moisture from humidity in the air. No water needs to be added.
Because the beads are non-organic, they will never break down, decay, or develop an odour.
Wrap is constructed of soft, all-natural cotton fleece on the side nearest the skin, and an insulated multi-ply fabric with vapor barrier on the outside to direct the moisture and heat toward the body.
Universal design for many applications - for temporary relief from arthritis and rheumatic pain, muscle strains & spasms, headaches, migraines, cramps and more! Can be used on the foot or ankle, on either the left or right side.
Moist heat therapy is commonly prescribed for relief of chronic pain.
Fold the Thera Temp Ankle & Foot Moist Heat Therapy Wrap so the white fleece side is inside the fold, with the black side out. Place in a clean microwave, alone, for the recommended time period.
Remove from the microwave and test for temperature - if the wrap is too hot, allow it to cool before using. If it's not hot enough, refold and put back in the microwave for an additional 10 seconds. Retest.
Position the wrap on the targeted body part and secure with the velcro tab.
The wrap will stay in place while delivering therapeutic moist heat and allowing freedom of movement.
For acute pain, use cold therapy during the first 48 hours and alternate with moist heat after the swelling goes down. Use moist heat or heat therapy for chronic pain. Please Note: Doctors typically recommend the application of cold or heat therapy not exceed 20 minutes at a time. Allow 20 minutes between applications.
