The 8in x 12in Lower Back Warmer is a wonderful tool for any area of your back. Works well to alleviate pain and aches, and soreness in joints and muscles. It is great for chronic back pain sufferers. Works for sore muscles and cramps. Also, great for using if you suffer from coldness from Raynaud’s, anemia, thyroid problems, or iron deficiency. To use the HotShotz Lower Back Warmer, squeeze the activator button until it clicks and the heat pack will heat up on its own. For multiple uses, cover with a fabric cloth (dish cloth will work), put in a pot of boiling water and let it boil for 10 to 20 minutes, ensuring all crystals have melted, and then remove it from the pot and let the heat pack cool off to around room temperature and it’s ready to be used! On average, usability will generally last about two hours. Time will vary depending on how you use it and insulate it.
1. Locate the activator button in your HotShotz heat pack. Use your thumb to firmly click and release the very center of the button on the side with the most metal showing. The heat pack will instantly crystalize and heat up to 130 degrees right before your eyes.
2. Insulate the pack to prolong heat under clothing or in a towel or strap and use it for the duration of its heat for all of your therapeutic needs, outdoor activities or just to stay warm. The heat pack will eventually cool and become solid.
3. Wrap the pack in a dish cloth and carefully place it in a pot of boiling water. Continue to boil for 10 to 20 minutes depending on the size of the pack. Make sure that all crystals have completely melted in the pack. Use tongs to carefully remove the pack from the pot and allow it to cool to room temperature.
Your HotShotz heat pack is now ready to activate all over again! WHENEVER AND WHEREVER YOU WANT!
TENS is a non-invasive, drug free method of controlling pain, which uses tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves in order to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or eliminating the pain.
Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
EMS works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle(s). This is achieved by sending low frequency electric pulses through muscle tissue causing them to gently contract. In this way the muscles are passively exercised and blood flow is increased
Galvanic Stimulators use direct current, which creates an electrical field over the treated area. The positive pad works like ice, causing reduced circulation to the area under the pad. The negative pad works like heat, causing increased circulation.
IF sends small comfortable electrical impulses through your skin to work on deeper tissue stimulation. The sensation works to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.
Infrared Light Therapy help the body by delivering specific light waveforms that increase circulation. Increasing circulation helps promote healing, lessen swelling, and helps in reducing pain.
Portable Ultrasounds give advanced pain relief using sonic stimulation of soft tissue cells. They generate pulsed, high frequency sound waves, which travel deep into the tissue, generating vasodilation. This helps increase blood flow to the treated area.
Russian stimulation uses medium frequencies to provide stimulation to muscle groups. This is used to reduce muscle spasms as well as for muscle strengthening. This method was created to produce maximal muscle strengthening effects.
Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely small amounts of electrical current (millionths of an amp) to help relieve pain and heal soft tissues of the body. The electrical current used in Microcurrent Therapy is so small that it is rarely felt.
