Best Warming plaster

Most Germans suffer more or less regularly from back pain. When the back pinches, stings and pulls, many people look for a quick solution and often resort to painkillers. Heat plasters are a freely saleable and generally better tolerated alternative to ointments, tablets and drops. They are glued directly to the back for treatment and are intended to alleviate the symptoms with warmth.

Anyone who lies on the sofa after a strenuous working day with pain in the neck or back often instinctively reaches for the tried and tested hot-water bottle. Heat promotes blood circulation and helps to release tension in the muscles. Heat patches use the same principle to combat pain. However, the way they generate heat varies from product to product. Some heat plasters rely on herbal active ingredients such as arnica and cayenne pepper (capsaicin). Applied with the plaster, these penetrate into the skin and unfold their warming effect there. Arnica has the task of promoting blood circulation. Capsaicin can cause skin irritation in some people.













Some manufacturers therefore rely on heat plasters in which no active ingredient penetrates into the skin. Their plasters are filled with substances 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 (up to 18 hours for some manufacturers). In the case of The Heat Company’s body warmer, average temperatures of 51°C and maximum 63°C are reached. This product is also not glued directly to the skin, but to an item of clothing such as underwear or a T-shirt. The advantage of this variant is that no skin irritations are possible due to the ingredients or the patch itself (keyword: patch allergy).

Some doctors and orthopaedists recommend the use of heat patches as a supporting measure for neck and back complaints. Depending on the cause of the pain, they can reduce the administration of medication. Heat plasters are the most commonly used:

– Witcheshots- Sciatica- Shoulder pain- Back pain- Neck pain

Heat plasters are not suitable for the treatment of painful inflammations. This also includes pain caused by arthrosis or rheumatic attacks. Even with fresh sports injuries, no heat should be used. Such injuries should initially be treated with cold to reduce swelling. Only in the case of older injuries and chronic complaints can treatment with a warming plaster be recommended. Important: In case of newly occurring and changing pain, always consult a doctor first. Self-treatment with a warming plaster can mask some acute illnesses and unnecessarily delay the start of treatment.

Heat plasters can sometimes reach high temperatures. Diabetics, who often suffer from sensory disorders, are often unable to assess the intensity of heat correctly. In the worst case, this can lead to burns. Diabetics should therefore talk to their doctor before using heat patches. Similarly, people who suffer from venous insufficiency or water retention in the body should refrain from treatment with heat plasters or have their family doctor clarify the situation.

In the case of heat patches that come into direct contact with the skin, the affected area must be thoroughly cleaned and freed from grease. The patch is best applied to the skin immediately after showering. Depending on the plaster, this remains on the skin for up to twelve hours. During this time, the patch continuously releases the active ingredients it contains and ensures permanent heat development. After the treatment, the skin should be given a break before the next patch is applied. There should be at least twelve hours between applications. If skin redness or itching occurs during this time, no more patches should be applied. It can be a hypersensitivity reaction of the body, which should first be shown to the family doctor.
