Painful knee joints and muscle pain in the leg are common complaints. A Zhu Zhu wheat-filled knee pad is specially designed to wrap around the affected area and is held securely in place to deliver targeted warmth that soothes, comforts and reduces pain. The pads contain small grains of wheat that absorb heat when microwaved and release their warmth gradually to create a soothing effect on the skin, muscles and joints.
There’s plenty of research to support the efficacy of heat therapy for the symptomatic relief of painful joints and muscles. The application of heat increases blood flow to the area which not only reduces pain and inflammation, but promotes healing, too.
