The hot water bottle trick

Right on my shoulder blade it’s so sore I’d call it pain not just an ache.
Haven’t used this trick in years but I’ve got a small hot water bottle hanging on a string in the cupboard. Fill it from the freshly boiled kettle & I can dangle it right over the spot.

Found a tape from the waist of some old joggers looped it through the string so it can go round my wrist & I don’t have to keep gripping it.


Clever! Just don’t have the water so hot you risk burning yourself :scream:

thanks - I do rest the kettle on the edge of the sink when pouring to steady my hand but I’m sure there’s a safer alternative out there

The wheat bags are good too, warmed in a microwave. They can be leaned against for shoulder blade area.
