The Best Wraps for Your Joints

When you have an aching muscle, it’s important to quickly tend to it by using a hot or cold therapeutic wrap. When choosing a wrap, it’s important to consider what joint you will want to use it to relieve; wraps for your back and arms are designed differently. Hot compresses should be used on stiff muscles and joints, while cold compresses are great for relieving pain and reducing swelling. Think you need a new wrap? Not sure where to start? Check out our guide to the best wraps for your joints below.

Best Lower Back Wrap

Sunny Bay Lower Back and Shoulder Heat Wrap

None

Great for hot or cold compresses, this back wrap features sectioned chambers to hold heat or cold for long periods of time.

What We Liked:

Our favorite thing about this wrap was the multiple chambers that are hand-filled with natural flax seeds. This design ensures that the wrap will hold heat and cold longer than other models – up to one full hour. It is equipped with extra-long straps to let you easily secure it on your pack. The pad is also very large and can be used on other areas of the body. Get it today.

Best Neck and Shoulder Wrap

PhysioNatural Microwavable Heating Pad

None

Soft and comfortable, this wrap will stay securely on your shoulders instead of falling down your back.

What We Liked:

If you’ve ever used a neck or shoulder wrap before, you know that many will slide off at the slightest movement, leaving you trying to sit like a statue. This wrap breaks the curse; it is segmented so it will naturally fall around your shoulders and stay in place. We also loved the soft material used to make this wrap. Get it today.
