Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is cold or heat better for back pain?

    Among the most common home pain remedies is applying heat and ice directly to sites of pain. While this treatment may seem obvious, not everyone is clear on exactly when to use ice versus heat.

    Applying an ice pack to reduce swelling and inflammation shortly after you experience a strained muscle, tendon, or ligament may bring relief.

    Interestingly, once the inflammation has decreased, heat may help reduce the stiffness that comes with sprains and strains.

    A heating pad or cold pack used briefly on the head may also help reduce the pain of a headache, while an ice pack can help relieve low back pain.

    If your painful problem is arthritis, moist heat applied to the affected joint will help more than ice.

    Applying an ice pack may help treat issues like:

    • swelling
    • inflammation
    • headaches
    • low back pain
    • strained muscles, tendons, or ligaments

    Meanwhile, applying heat can provide relief from conditions such as:

    • joint stiffness
    • muscle spasms
    • arthritis
    • headaches
  • Do you have a knee pain patch?

    Eco Pain patches are designed with knee pain in mind.

    Eco Pain Relief Patches use a quality adhesive and are designed to stay on joints and parts of the body when you move.

    Our pain patches use a lightweight flexible breathable fabric that are designed to stay on painful joints and muscles whilst moving and exercising.

    Knee pain may be the result of an injury, such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. Medical conditions — including arthritis, gout and infections — also can cause knee pain.

    For smaller parts of your knee a pain patch may be cut down to suit the area of application. Please make sure you cut the pain patch BEFORE you peel off the adhesive backing.

  • How many times a day can I use a heat patch?

    You can use our pain relief heat patches every day.

    For effective relief re-apply a new patch no more than 3 times daily. Short term single use only. Remove and discard pain relief patch after 8 hours. Talk to your doctor if symptoms persist.

    If irritation occurs, discontinue use immediately and wash the area with warm soapy water.

  • Do you have a pain patch for lower back pain?

    Back pain refers to pain that you may feel in your back or spine. Lower back pain is a very common problem: 1 in 6 Australians report having back problems, and 4 out of 5 experience it sometime in their life. While both men and women report that they experience back problems, it is more commonly reported by people 25 years and older.

    Back pain can be grouped into different categories. Lower back pain refers to pain felt in the lower part of the spine (the lumbar spine). Back problems can also affect the upper back (the thoracic spine), the neck (cervical spine) as well as the tailbone (coccyx).

    People experience back pain in different ways. Some people say it feels like a sharp pain; other people report aches or spasms. You may feel stiff, or find it hard to turn or bend in certain directions. In some cases, such as sciatica, pain can travel down one or both your legs.

    Back pain can impact you physically and mentally. People suffering from back pain may feel irritable or short-tempered. Many of our loyal clients use our back patches for lower back pain relief.

    Our pain patches for lower back pain are 10x13cm in size you may require two back pain patches to cover the area of concern

    There are many back pain patches in Australia and we are proud of our Eco Pain Back Patches.

  • When should pain patches NOT be used?

    Do not use Patch on wounds, damaged or broken skin, or if you are allergic to any ingredients

    Generally speaking, we do not recommend using pain patches on anyone that cannot remove the pain patch themselves. In other words, young children and elderly patients should be able to take the heat patches off themselves in case of irritation or discomfort.

  • Can the pain relief patch be used while pregnant or breast-feeding?

    Please consult your Doctor, Pharmacist or Midwife before use.

  • Can I take a shower or bath whilst using the pain relief patch?

    Eco Pain Pain Relief Patches are not designed to be worn during a shower or bath.
