ThermaCare Provides Back Pain Relief & Prizes!

The author doing how he do.

The thing about hiking is that in addition to understanding the terrain, being prepared with supplies and equipment, and accounting for weather and the unseen inevitable, you also have to be in pretty good physical condition. I found out the obvious on a recent hiking trip with my father and sister — a trip that left me standing in the Arizona sun making excuses to the senior citizen clubs that passed me by. I was not prepared to take on a steep, bare mountain, one that my family climbed on a regular basis, because my idea of hiking had been warped by years in Seattle where hiking with my kids consisted of a few miles strolling through a forest of shade and water with frequent breaks and ample seating.

My back was the first to complain.

I had a plane to catch, luggage to carry, and hours of sitting in an upright position ahead of me, and my aching back wanted nothing to do with it. Luckily, on a suggestion from a relative, I also had a ThermaCare Lower Back & Hip HeatWrap. The box said that ThermaCare had patented heat cells that provide up to 16 hours of relief. My flight was not nearly that long, so I gave it a shot.

It worked.

But don't take my word for it (or my back's), we're giving one lucky winner 16 ThermaCare Lower Back & Hip HeatWraps, and they will be able to feel the relief themselves while enjoying the activities that they love. Actual activities may vary.

How to Enter: Leave a comment below telling us what activity you would love to participate in if back pain wasn't a problem. One winner will be chosen from all qualified entries and that person will be contacted via email (please include your email in the box provided, not in the body of the comment). Winner will have 24 hours to reply with their mailing/shipping address. If winner does not reply within the allotted time then their prize will be forfeit and another winner will be picked. And so forth and so on. It's not rocket surgery, people.

But that's not all!

In addition to ThermaCare helping you get back to doing the activities you love, they also want to give you prizes. That's right, prizes! Like ThermaCare on Facebook to join their Rally for Relief, an interactive way to defeat back pain.
