Drug-free relief from lower back pain.

Adhesive, latex-free gel pads keep Aleve Direct Therapy comfortably in place to ensure you feel relief at the source of your lower back pain. Depending on skin type, oils and pH levels, gel pads typically last for up to 5 applications. A starter pack is included with your Aleve Direct Therapy purchase.

How to use your gel pads and make them last

Here are some tips for getting the best value for your gel pads:

Before Use

  • Make sure your skin is clean and free of lotions, oil or excessive hair.
  • Remove only the blue liners to expose the sticky surface that goes onto the electrodes. Be sure to press firmly onto the green liners so the gel pads stick tightly to the electrodes.
  • Save the green liners and press them firmly on the gel pads to store your unit between uses.
  • Rejuvenate the sticky surface by simply dampening a finger and applying the water with your fingertip.

During Use

Remember that using or wearing your Direct Therapy TENS device while perspiring – in hot weather or while exercising for example – can make the gel pads less sticky.

After Use

  • Carefully remove the device after treatment to help the gel pads remain sticky. Simply grasp both the edges of your unit and the gel pads so the gel pad doesn’t stay on your skin. Then slowly peel the device off.
  • Use the green protective liners to completely re-cover the gel pads. This helps keep them moist and protects them from dust.
  • Store your Direct Therapy unit with the gel pads in the box and keep away from heat.
