The cura-heat range is a range of air activated heat packs individually designed to provide pain relief in different areas of the body. I have used the packs for knees and also the back and shoulder pain packs. A box of 3 back and shoulder packs costs around £2.50 and a similar price for the knee treatment pack. They are available in boots and supermarkets. I have also seen them at my local pound shop. The main benefit of these packs is that they are drug free. I am a firm believer in always trying something natural or non-medicinal before turning to the medication as a last resort. Basically, all of the treatments contain small packs which heat up when ...

I suffer from very severe period pain and tend to have to stay in bed with a hot water bottle so when I saw a packet of these in the pound shop (£1 for three!) I thought I'd try them as they might allow me to be a bit more mobile during my time of the month. They are air-activated so they start working as soon as you open the individual plastic packet. As they're individually wrapped, you can easily keep a spare one in your handbag without having to carry a whole box. They claim to last for 12 hours but I would say they only seem effective for about 8 hours at most and if you've been wearing one for several hours you start to not notice the heat and ...

Last week, I woke up with a pain in my arm, at the point where the top bit meets the elbow - and I don't even know why, as I cannot remember banging it or twisting it. You know how sometimes, a pain just appears from nowhere? (Maybe it's Dooyooers Cramp, caused by too much sitting here typing?) Anyway, I remembered that I had these Cura-Heat Patches in the bathroom cabinet. I had bought them some time ago from my branch of Home Bargains, so the price was less than it would normally be, at around £2.00. I orginally bought these because I don't like using cold things for pain: you know how you are recommended to use a bag of frozen peas , for ... Read the complete review

In my haste, one day last week, I stretched up to reach something from a cupboard, without going and getting a step.......I'm not particularly tall, so I did that sort of wobbly, standing on tiptoes, thing trying to coax my desired item from the shelf.......resulting in a pulled muscle in my back. No one to blame by myself. I am very lucky in that after a few days of pain, I had access to a fantastic phsyio who worked wonders, leaving me with rather less pain. The pain had become discomfort rather than out and out "ouch" and I was very much aware of it. The physio said that if it continued to give me problems I could put a bag of ...

Incase your not sure what these actually are (and I wasnt the first time I bought them) they are patches that when in contact with the air (i.e opened up from the sealed packet) warms up. Its supposed to stay hot for around 8 hours. They are used for muscular pain and period pains. I brought these as I had bad period pains and my back was killing me. I had tried ibuprofen, neurofen plus (and these were the days before I could get hold of feminax ultra). They cost around £4 or £6 plus depending on which type you buy and will have about two or three in a box. Some boxes are supersize and have many many more. I did feel these were very expensive, as a ... Read the complete review
