Back Pain Patch

Back pain is one of the most common reasons people miss work or visit doctors. Applying a medicated Back Pain Patch directly over the source of discomfort provides convenient relief without the need for oral painkillers. Here we answer some frequently asked questions about using back pain relief patches:

How do the Back Pain Patches work?

Back pain patches contain active ingredients like menthol, methyl salicylate, capsaicin, and camphor. These are absorbed through the skin and penetrate deep into the back muscles and joints. The ingredients disrupt pain signals, provide anti-inflammatory effects, cool the local area, and relax muscles.

What are the advantages of Pain Patches?

Patches allow direct delivery to the painful area without digestive side effects. The transdermal delivery provides stable concentrations of medication for steady relief. Back patches are discreet, easy to apply, and provide long-lasting pain management.

How long does each patch last? 

Most back pain patches provide 8 to 12 hours of pain management from a single application. Some patches made with long-lasting liposome or emulsion technology can last up to 24 hours.

Where exactly should I apply the patch?

Apply the patch directly over the part of your back that hurts most. If the entire back aches, stick a large patch across the lumbar region. For upper back pain, apply between the shoulder blades. Always place on clean dry skin.

How many patches can I use per day?

Start with one patch and reapply as needed for pain relief. Using 2 patches at the same time is normally considered safe as the medicine is delivered locally. Follow instructions and don't exceed dosage guidelines.

How long do the Back Pain Patches take to work? 

You can expect the cooling, numbing sensation to start within 30 minutes after applying the patch. Peak pain relief is experienced in 1 to 2 hours. Apply patches at the first sign of discomfort for faster relief.

Can I wear patches under my clothing? 

Yes, back pain relief patches often feature discrete designs. They are thin enough to be worn comfortably under clothing without detection. Avoid applying over areas where clothing directly rubs.

How do I remove the patch?  

Gently peel off each patch slowly from the edges. Do not pull at the center which can irritate skin. Use oil or warm water to remove any adhesive residue. Avoid reusing patches.

Back pain patches offer many benefits for convenient, non-invasive relief. Follow usage instructions carefully and use them as part of an overall back pain management regimen. Consult us to address the underlying cause of your back discomfort.
