Warming plaster guide

Most Germans suffer more or less regularly with back pain. When it pinches, stings and pulls in the back, many people seek a quick fix and often resort to painkillers. An over-the-counter and generally better tolerated alternative to ointments, tablets and drops heating plaster , They are glued directly onto the back for treatment and are intended to alleviate the discomfort by means of heat.

Heat relieves neck and back pain

Who after a hard day’s work with pain in the neck or back on the sofais often instinctively used to the well-tried hot-water bottle, Heat promotes blood circulation and helps to relieve tension in the muscles. heating plaster use the same principle to fight pain. However, the way they generate heat differs from product to product. Some heating plaster rely on herbal ingredients such as arnica and cayenne (capsaicin). With the plasterwhen applied, these penetrate the skin and develop their warming effect there. Arnica has the task of promoting blood circulation. capsaicin can cause skin irritation in some people.

Some manufacturers therefore set up heating plaster in which no active ingredient penetrates the skin. Their patches are filled with materials such as iron powder, table salt, activated carbon, vermiculite and water. On contact with the air, this mixture reacts and gives off heat for several hours (some manufacturers up to 18 hours). In the case of the body warmer from The Heat Company, temperatures averaging 51 ° C and a maximum of 63 ° C are reached. This product is also not glued directly to the skin but to a garment such as underwear or a T-shirt, The advantage of this variant is that no skin irritation by the ingredients or the plaster itself (keyword: plaster allergy) are possible.

For which application areas themselves heating plaster are

Some doctors and orthopedists recommend the use of thermal pads as a supportive measure for neck and back problems. Depending on the cause of the pain, they can reduce the dose of medication. Thermal patches are most commonly used:

– lumbago
– Sciatic discomfort
– shoulder pain
– back pain
– neck pain

Not suitable are thermal patches for the treatment of painful inflammation. These include pain caused by arthrosis or rheumatism. Even with fresh sports injuries no heat should be used. Such injuries should be treated with cold at the beginning to reduce swelling. Only with older injuries and chronic complaints a treatment with a heat plaster can be recommended. Important: In case of new and changing pain, consult a doctor first. Self-treatment with a thermal patch may mask some acute conditions and delay the onset of treatment unnecessarily.

Diabetics should be careful

Thermal patches can sometimes reach high temperatures. Diabetics, who often suffer from sensory disturbances, often can not properly assess the intensity of the heat. In the worst case this can lead to burns. Therefore, diabetics should talk to their doctor before using thermal pads. Likewise, people who suffer from a venous insufficiency or water retention in the body should refrain from the treatment with heat patches or have it checked out by their family doctor.

Apply heat patches correctly

In the case of heat patches that have direct skin contact, the affected area must be thoroughly cleaned and freed from grease. It is best to stick the plaster on the skin immediately after showering. Depending on the patch, this will remain on the skin for up to twelve hours. During this time, the patch continuously releases the active ingredients contained and permanently ensures heat development. After treatment, the skin should be given a break before the next patch is applied. At least twelve hours should be between the applications. If it comes during this time to redness or itching, no plaster should be applied. It may be a hypersensitivity reaction of the body, which should be shown to the family doctor first.
