If you have stress that has settled into your shoulders or neck, or arthritis, inflammation, a pinched nerve or frozen shoulder, the TheraPAQ Weighted Neck and Shoulder Heat Wrap is a must-have. This pain relief wrap can be used for hot or cold therapy, depending on your needs. Heat it up in the microwave or pop it in the freezer, and the natural clay beads inside will spread warmth or coolness evenly over your neck and shoulders for pain relief and complete relaxation. Use the TheraPAQ wrap anytime for stress and pain relief. The 12″ x 17″ size hugs your shoulders and neck, and the outer cover is washable. It’s a good idea to check with your doctor before using this or any type of heating pad, especially if you have neuropathy.
