The PRECISE® Pain Relieving Heat
Patch effectively relieves pain through the use of heat. The heat in
PRECISE® Pain Relieving Heat Patches penetrates deep,
warming the muscle to significantly decrease painful sensations. Heat
stimulates thermoreceptors, which block the body's pain transmitters from
sending pain signals to the brain. Heat also helps stretch soft tissues,
relax muscles, decrease stiffness and promote flexibility.
When used as directed, PRECISE®
Pain Relieving Heat Patches will always reach the maximum therapeutic
temperature. But over time, your body may adapt to the heat, making you
feel like the patch is not as hot as it could be. This does not mean the
patch is defective.
Think of wearing a wristwatch. Over time, you will not feel it
around your wrist. Heat patches can produce the same effect. Your body will
adapt to the heat, and it will not feel as hot even though the temperature
remains the same. It has to do with neural fatigue — the nerve signals that
sense heat don't respond the same way over time. The more secure the patch
is on the skin, and the less it moves, the more likely you are to
experience the adaptation effect.
For maximum effectiveness, you should wear the
heat patch for 8 uninterrupted hours. You should not use for more than 8
hours in a 24-hour period. It may take up to 30 minutes for the patch to
reach its therapeutic temperature. Removing or moving the patch will
decrease its effectiveness.
Yes. However, when using this product, do not
place pressure or wear tight clothing over the patch. And if you are 55
years or older, wear the patch over a layer of clothing and not directly
against your skin, as your risk of burns increases with age.
