How Voltarol Heat Patch Works:
The Voltarol Heat Patch is a non-medicated patch which provides targeted back and muscle pain relief by delivering up to 8 hours long-lasting deep penetrating heat. The continuous low-level heat from the patch works by stimulating heat receptors to relieve pain; increasing blood flow to relax stiff muscles, reducing muscle spasms and delivering the body's natural pain relievers
