Back Patches offer hands-free deep tissue comfort, with benefits that include:
Relief from over-exertion: Heat is incredibly helpful in combating pain in muscles, and the back is home to several important muscle groups. In some cases, heat is the only thing that helps relieve back pain, making Deep Heat products essential components of your medical supplies at home, travelling kit or first aid kit.
Relief from stiffness and knots in ‘trigger points’: These types of pain include osteoarthritis, muscular knots, postural problems, and ongoing pain caused by other injuries or ailments. Deep Heat Back Patches have your trigger points covered.

Can Deep Heat back patches be worn under clothing?
Deep Heat Back Patches are odourless, adhesive to skin, and can be discretely worn under clothing. In fact, one back patch will warm muscles and joints for 8 hours without diminished heating ability. Simply attach the Deep Heat Back Patch wherever muscle or joint pain exists, and allow the magic to begin. In only a minute, you will experience amazing relief that can last all day long.
How should you apply heated back patches?
Simply remove the protective packaging from the Deep Heat Back Patch, and adhere the patch directly onto your back. The back patch will stick firmly on clean, dry skin. The iron oxide contained in the patch reacts immediately when it comes in contact with air. Muscles, ligaments and joints will quickly warm up and become soothed, supple, flexible, and far less painful.
