F A Q

Heat Therapy

I have heard that cold therapy is also a good way to relieve pain.

When is cold therapy the right treatment and when heat therapy?

The therapeutic use of cold or warmth is a well-known physiotherapeutic treatment. Whether to use heat or cold on the affected area depends on the type of pain. Heat has been known for generations to be an effective way to relieve pain caused by muscle strain and tension, and in many cases applying external heat sources can relieve muscle pain. Cold is recommended for acute conditions, such as acute inflammation or injuries, e.g. sports injuries such as sprains, contusions, bruising, and swelling. If you are in doubt as to whether to apply heat or cold, please consult your pharmacist or physician.

When should I use Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Plaster and when Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pads?

Both products can be used for the relief of musculoskeletal pain. They differ in their mode of action. Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Plaster induces the feeling of warmth by means of a pharmacological ingredient and inhibits the pain-transmitting Substance P whereas Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pads are an external source of physical heat.

Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pads provide long-lasting deeply penetrating physical heat. They therefore can also be used by persons who react with unpleasant skin sensations when using capsaicin creams, ointments or pads.

Therapeutic Heat Therapy

Against which types of pain can the Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pad be used?

The main field of application for the Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pad Large is the relief of muscle pain in the low back area. The main field of application for the Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pad Small is the relief of pain from muscle strain and tension in the neck and shoulder area. The heat pads provide pleasant and well-tolerated heat for the relief of muscle pain and relax tight and cramped muscles. Please first consult your physician if you want to use the Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pad against other types of pain.

For how long should the Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pad be applied?

The Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pad should be applied over 2-3 days for 8 hours daily to achieve optimal results, but only one pads should be applied in the same area within any 24-hour period. In addition, a pad should not be applied for more than 7 consecutive days in the same area. A physician should be consulted if the pain remains or gets even worse, because this might be a sign of a more serious disease.

Why should I consult a physician before using the Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pad when I suffer from diabetes?

Patients suffering from diabetes often develop poor blood circulation, a diminished ability to sense high temperatures, and are more susceptible to skin irritation due to their disease. Therefore, patients suffering from diabetes should consult their physician before using the Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pad.

Can I wear the Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pad overnight?

It is possible to wear the Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pad overnight, but we suggest first wearing it during the day in order to experience the level of heat.
