How ThermaCare Got My Back

Thermacare-contestThe bear was pacing and panicked. She circled the large metal box, cried into the sky, and then looked directly toward my general direction. It was terrifying.

I leaned forward as a truck pulled next to the box and someone placed a ladder into the opening at the top. My breath held with anticipation.

The bear gave them some space, but she didn't like it.

Suddenly a furry paw appeared on the first visible rung of the ladder and behind it two fluffy ears and the rest of a baby bear. Then another. And another.

There were three bear cubs in all, and they each took a turn climbing up the ladder, jumping out of the dumpster, and returning to their mother's side.

 

 

I must have watched the video a dozen times, and my back was killing me.

That's what I get for using lawn furniture for an office chair. I thought it would feel outdoorsy. Instead it just feels uncomfortable.

Fortunately, I had some ThermaCare Lower Back & Hip HeatWraps in the house, and my previous experience with their patented heat cells (which provide up to 16 hours of relief) gave me hope.

I applied the HeatWrap per the instructions on the box, and soon I was feeling fine, ready to watch the video again. And again.

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!
