Rated 4 out of 5 by Bohorae Very Effective
This is effective for mild to moderate pain. My husbands neck is causing excessive enough pain in his hands and arms to warrant surgery in March, so I got this just to see if it gave him any relief. He says it doesn't do much for the actual pain, but it is warm and comfy, relaxing the tightened muscles around the discs enough to at least help him fall asleep at night. The hand pockets are inconvenient and not long enough to be worn by him as shown, but he puts them on his shoulder joints or biceps and enjoys the warmth.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GrandTPot Another Wonderful Product!
This wonderful product soothed my RA hands and neck instantly. The scent is light and pleasant. Be very careful to follow the directions about the amount of time to heat it in the miicrowave. Don't exceed more than 5-10 seconds beyond the recommended amount of time; exceeding the amount of time makes the product too hot to use right away, and the packaging does warn you about that, so follow the instructions. The soothing heat and scent helped me relax and take a nap as it focused on the specific areas of my neck, shoulders and hands that are troubled by rheumatoid arthritis, but it would also be quite effective for anyone with aches and pains for any reason. You can put your hands into the mitten section and then rest your hands on your thighs, shoulder blades or even your face (TMJ issues) for comfort. A wonderful product that the Arthitis Foundation and Stand Up to Cancer should be made aware of so that others can get the relief I get from its use.
