    • Yes I like them…they ease the pain when it is THAT time….and I have a male friend who used the back wraps on his back and loved them. He had some muscle strain and was on all types of medication from the doctor but used those in between and found them to really work.

      The one thing you need to note is that they make you sweat (well they make me sweat more) and the first time you use them the heat might be uncomfortable…so try it at home first before going out to work to see how your body reacts.

      • Thanks! I have lower back problems from sitting at my computer all day so I need to try these out.

  1. My wife has used the thermcare wraps and says she likes them. For what it’s worth.

  2. Thats great how you are able to make some money with the CVS extra care bucks. I never seem to have time to deal with coupons and so forth, I just use loyalty/rewards cards. Sounds like I should look into this, though there aren’t too many CVS near me.

  3. This is a great way they can make money with money C V S other care. I never seem to have time to deal with coupons and so on, just use loyalty cards / rewards. It sounds like you should consider this, but there are not many C V S close to me.
