Customer ReviewsWrite a review
Had two back surgeries in the lumbar region of my back. The first was due to compression of two vertebrae. The pain was sudden and severe, but was able to walk away from the surgical area and had instant relief. A year later a different problem in two lumbar vertebrae, again unbearable pain and urgent surgery. This time I didn't walk from the OR, had a hospital stay followed by two weeks in a rehab hospital. The pain was somewhat reduced, but every time I've walked, with every step there's still been much pain, for over a year. Not only chronic pain, but balance problems and falls. My physical therapist recently suggested a heating pad might help. She was right, Even after the first use, the Huggaboo heating pad lessened the pain significantly. Now it's become part of my daily routine. The other day walked to do some shopping, and realised that I'd walked without pain, the first time in over a year. I can once again enjoy the simple pleasure of walking. Thank you Huggaroo.
This works as it was stated.
The back wrap is exactly what I needed. I actually use it as a crossbody wrap to get my shoulder and upper back. The Velcro strap let’s me fasten the pad around me nice and secure. The pad stays nice and warm and gives me the relief I need.
My packet actually burst, apparently due to coming in contact with oil whilst heating it (tip for future customers, don't wear it directly on skin since that produces oil too!). I mentioned it in an earlier review and was immediately and politely reached out to by a lovely lady called Kate and refunded promptly (after being given a choice between a refund or replacement). Amazing customer service, thank you Huggaroo. :^)
My back problem is okay at the moment. When it comes back, which it does I am sure the heated pad will be really good.
