Voltarol Heat Patch is designed to target back and muscle pain, providing up to 24 hours of localised pain-relieving heat.
How it works:
The Voltarol Heat Patch is a non-medicated patch which provides targeted back and muscle pain-relieving heat for up to 8 hours. The continuous low-level heat from the patch works by stimulating heat receptors to relieve pain; increasing blood flow to relax stiff muscles, reducing muscle spasms and aids the supply of oxygen and nutrients to help promote the healing of the injured tissue.
How to use:
Tear open the sleeve, just before you are ready to use the heat patch. Remove the plastic backing then place the heat patch on the painful area, either the back, neck or shoulders, apply the adhesive side onto dry clean skin. Press firmly to make sure it is fixed correctly. The heat patch starts to heat up after a few minutes of opening. When you remove the heat patch, peel it off slowly from one corner.
Do not leave the heat patch on the same area of skin for more than 8 hours in any 24 hour period, and do not use more than one heat patch per day on the same area of skin. The heat patch is for external use. Stop use and contact you doctor if after seven days your pain gets worse or remains unchanged.
Do not use with other skin medications or other heat sources.
Do not attempt to reheat in the oven or microwave. Do not cut pierce or allow the patch to get wet.
For single use.
