Shoulder Inferno Wrap Eased the Pain

I recently had surgery on my left shoulder on Jan 4th of this year to shave down the bone to leave enough space for my shoulder joint to work.

It seemed to be healing slowly, until I probably reinjured it trying to cut down a small tree. I went back to my Orthopedic Surgeon for my follow up and had to have a cordizone shot in June so I could be painfree while on a long awaited vacation.

The shot lasted until September and had another shot October 26 with a warning from the Dr that if I couldn't get any better through therapy by Jan 6 2011 I would have to have the full surgery with my tendions and muscles sewn up to the top of my Rotator Cuff. I told him I don't want to go through the pain again, since I can't take pain medication due to my daily med I have to take for PTSD and can't take them both at the same time.

So I did some research for the last 2 months and kept comming up with the MendMeShop Left Shoulder Inferno Wrap. I printed all the material and showed it to my OS and he said to try it if I think it will help me. I recieved it in 2 days last friday and was out of town overnight. So I didn't get to try it until Saturday night. I tried it wrapped over a sweater with a thermal shirt underneath and the heat went right through and felt like I was at the physical therapist.

The next day I did a few 60 minute sessions and I could feel my muscles ache a little bit, but NO PAIN praise God !!! I was buying a large tube of Extra Strength Muscle Rub with 16 % Menthol once a week to bear the pain along with 800 ML of Ibuprofen. Today is Thursday and I haven't had to put any rub on my shoulder since coming home saturday night.

This Inferno Wrap is incredible and is worth every penny. I am on Disability so I can't afford to waste a penny, but this purchase is becomming a lifesaver for me. Sometimes I just unplug from the charger, tuck the little 8 inch connector, then I tighten the wrap to make it a compression support and the heat stays in it for hours and allows me to be able to function a lot less painful since I am left handed also.

If I could give it a 10 star rating instead of a 5 star I would. I will keep you all up to date a few times a week as I progress, along with any replies I might recieve.

More Hamstring Injury Facts:

Oral Medications can mask the pain but do not aid in the healing of a Hamstring muscle injury. Anti-inflammatories and Pain killers can cause Hamstring muscle related injuries to worsen.


One out of three athletes who sustain an initial hamstring injury will reinjure their hamstring within a year of returning to play. It is theorized that weakness in the hamstring muscle due to incomplete or improper (scar tissue) healing will often cause a hamstring re-injury.


A Grade 1 Hamstring Injury is a mild strain with a few torn muscle fibers in the hamstring.


A Grade 2 Hamstring Injury is a moderate strain and the patient shows a definite loss in strength.


A Grade 3 Hamstring Injury is a complete tear of the hamstring muscles.


10% to 23% of all acute soccer injuries are typically hamstring tears and hamstring strains (also known as strain injuries of the posterior thigh).


A complete tear of the Hamstring will require reattachment surgery. There is no avoidance of this.

A Skeptic Has Been Amazed by the Results From the Knee Inferno and Freezie

I'm usually a bit of a skeptic but I am absolutely amazed at the improvement in my knee. I was diagnosed with Lateral tendonitis - never knew it could be so painful.

I actually started walking again yesterday and look forward to getting back to Bootcamp soon.

Thanks For Your Expert Advice, I Am On My Way To Being Healthy Again

I also wanted to thank you so much for something you casually mentioned. In an email, you mentioned that I might want to look into a test to see if I had one leg shorter than the other because my knee pain was gone. Guess what- you were RIGHT! I went to an orthopaedic specialist who focuses on the foot and ankle. He was very casual and said I was healing fine. I insisted that he send me to someone who could make a brace of some sort. I can see that the same problem (posterior tibial tendonitis) was going to return if we did not get to the root of the problem.

I insisted that he at least send me to a person. Fortunately, he sent me to a certified Orthodist. She found a slight discrepency in my right foot. (That's the one with the cast on it.) She is getting new orthodics for me- PLUS I asked about a brace that could keep my feet from over pronating. The Orthopaedic specialist said he could put me in an Arizona brace. I was molded for the brace yesterday.

I truly appreciate your suggestion. No doctor thought to check into it. I am now swimming and have no more pain in the right ankle.

You have been a true blessing to me- in more ways than you will ever know. I know God had you pick up the phone when I called.

Again- THANKS for your kindness and expert advice. Don't forget to send me a link so I can write a review. Now I am on my way to being healthy again.

NFL Football Player Successfully Treated Achilles Tendonitis with Inferno Wrap

Hi, I'm Pro Wide Receiver Steve Smith. During this past off-season I experienced Achilles pain, so I began using the Ankle/Achilles Inferno Wrap. After using the Inferno Wrap for only a month, the pain in my Achilles subsided! Thanks to the Inferno Wrap my Achilles tendon is now feeling great!

If you are experiencing ankle or Achilles pain I strongly recommend trying out the Ankle/Achilles Inferno Wrap, it worked for me and I'm confident it will work for you! Thanks to the Inferno Wrap I can now focus on scorching the competition this season!

Possible Reasons for High Rates of Hamstring Injury:

Timing and Coordination problems during a running sprint - specifically during the time the back leg is off the ground and pulled forward (to place on ground in front of you).


Running stride is too long (overstride), or the sway in the run is significant (causing more stress on the hamstring).


An Improperly healed hamstring injury will predispose you to another hamstring injury.


Lack of stiffness in the hamstring muscle will increase your chance of a strain when your feet are contacting the ground in a run. (inability to absorb enough shock)


Improper warm-up before exercise.


A slippery playing surface increase your odds of a hamstring strain due to slipping.


Certain Lower Back Issues may potentially cause weakened muscles; weak hamstring muscles are more prone to strain than stronger hamstring muscles.

Therapist Using the Inferno and Freezie for Their Own Ailments

The first time I used the shoulder inferno wrap and the freezie wrap was to treat a rotator cuff injury I sustained from over use and aging. I was in my early 60's and an avid tennis player,kayaker, skier, hiker and biker for most of my life.

Doctors were recommending surgery but I opted for physical therapy. This helped but did not give me the relief I needed to continue with all of my athletic activities. Then I started using your product. After activities where I used my shoulder, even weight training, I used the freezie wrap followed by the inferno wrap. Then I used the inferno wrap periodically throughout the day while at work.

I'm a therapist and my clients were OK with me wearing the wrap during sessions if I felt the need to. I experienced the ability to use my shoulder and be completely pain free. I was thrilled. Then at age 65 I began to have achilles tendon inflammation which became extremely painful. Doctors explained to me that as we age tendons lose flexibility and are more prone to injury. I bought that explanation to a point but again tried physical therapy, prolonged stretching, Ibuprofen and rest.

I had relief if I used large regular doses of anti-inflamatory medications but was concerned about the long term negative affects of the meds. I purchased the Ankle inferno and freezie wrap and began the same routine I had used with my rotator cuff injury. I'm happy to say the results were the same. Even this aging body was able to repair and stretch my achilles tendon with exercise, and the cold and warm treatments from your products.

Now I am still playing tennis and doing all of my other activities and I remain pain free. After athletics I use the freezie wrap followed by the inferno wrap. Also, before I play racket sports or hike I use the inferno wrap on my ankle and follow with gentle stretching. When I get home I use the freezie wrap. Who knows how long I will be able to continue my active life style. But right now I know that these products are enabling me to be an active, vibrant, aging woman who can (almost) keep up with my kids.

I should add that I also maintain a healthy weight, train with weights, exercise every day and eat a plant based diet with lean protein. Even my healthy lifestyle wasn't enough to prevent these nagging injuries that become more prevalent as we age. So....thanks for making a great product ...... and my life more manageable.

Ironman Competitor Stops Training Due to Knee Tendonitis

I was in the middle of my training for my first Ironman triathlon in Florida, when my running had to come to a complete stop because of tendonitis in my right knee.

After a month off and using the Inferno Knee Wrap for one week was able to start back where I left off in my run training and as of November 6th 2010 my Ironman dream is now a reality, finishing my training and the race in Panama City injury free.

Thank you Mend Me Shop and the Inferno Knee Wrap for helping me achieve my dream.

Great Results for an Avid Runner

I'm regularly using both Leg and Plantar Inferno Wraps now and I'm already seeing extreme/good results.

Basically I'm doing lots of running now and enjoy competing 5k's & 10k's. Hopefully full marathon soon and to achieve better results I need to train hard; consequences [of this] are typical running injuries.

Obviously I'm treating my Plantar Fascia [with the Plantar Inferno Wrap], and using the Leg Inferno Wrap I'm treating my calf and hamstring. Both Inferno Wraps I should say are user friendly / easy to use though you need to be near electrical outlet to operate this gadget.

I should say this equipment is a big help to the runners world.

Quadriceps Tendinitis

Quadriceps tendonitis can lead to tendinosis if left untreated.

Quadriceps tendinitis (also spelled tendonitis) is a painful condition affecting the quadriceps tendon above the patella (kneecap). The quadriceps group of muscle (individually called the vastus lateralis, vastus intermedius, vastus medialis and the overlying rectus femoris) is the largest in the front of the thigh and is very important for stabilizing the leg. The quadriceps tendon connects the quadriceps to the tibia (shins) via the patellar tendon, which surrounds the knee cap itself. The movement of the knee known as the quadriceps mechanism involves the patella (knee cap), the patella tendon, the quadriceps and its tendon. They all work together to extend the leg to straight.

Quadriceps tendonitis is caused by repetitive use of this tendon. This condition is most common in an athlete who is in involved in sports that require lots of jumping such as basketball, volleyball and jogging, or in a sport that requires a lot of stopping and starting. Little tears in the tendon and tendon sheath will present as pain and inflammation if these tears are not allowed to heal with rest.

Quadriceps tendinitis - inflammation of the quadriceps tendon is caused by tiny tears that are not giving the proper rest to heal.

Inflammation in the quadriceps tendon is often due to irritation and/or micro-tearing of the collagen fibers. When the fibers tear, they become weaker, inflamed and swollen causing pain and tenderness in the area.

There are 2 types of tendonitis, acute and chronic. Acute quadriceps tendonitis refers to inflammation that comes on suddenly, usually from a tendon strain or overloading it during exercise. Chronic quadriceps tendonitis occurs over time and generally results from long term repetitive use of the quadriceps tendon.

With both types of tendinitis, scar tissue develops on the tendon as the tears begin to heal. This scar tissue mends the tears in an abnormal way leaving the collagen fibers weaker and more prone to further injury. In the case of chronic quadriceps tendinitis, a build up of scar tissue over a long period of time will make the tendon and the entire knee joint more prone to re-injury.

Other conditions which can be a cause of anterior (front) knee pain are commonly confused with quadriceps tendonitis. These conditions include patellar tendonitis, synovial plicae, chondromalacia, patello-femoral subluxation and hyper-pressure, fat pad impingement or Hoffa's syndrome and patello-femoral arthritis.

What are the risk factors for quadriceps tendinitis?

  • Participating in "jumping" sports such as basketball, volleyball and jogging.

  • Having diabetes, gout or para-hypothyroidism.

  • Age can be a factor because as we grow older our tendons become more brittle and therefore prone to injury.

  • Activities that require sharp, sudden changes of direction or lots of stopping and starting.

  • Mis-alignment of the foot, ankle, and leg including flat feet, leg length discrepancy, tracking abnormalities, etc.

What are the symptoms?

  • Pain when tightening or flexing the quadriceps with a straight leg .

  • Pain when the top of the kneecap is pressed.

  • Irritation or pain when moving from a crouched position to a standing position.

  • Stiffness or tightness the day following any activity or exercise that irritated the area.

How You Can Treat Quadriceps Tendinitis

Scar tissue builds on the quadriceps tendon as the tears heal. The build up causes pain and inflexibility in the tendon making it less flexible and more prone to further injury.

The best way to treat quadriceps tendonitis is to start by resting your knee, especially avoiding the particular activity that produced the condition. Freezie Wrap® cold compression wrap application will bring down the inflammation and swelling, Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (via use of the Inferno Wrap® to accelerate the healing process combined with gentle stretching and physiotherapy is a good conservative treatment therapy.

In the case of mild tendinitis, the body should be able to heal the tendon fibers normally with proper rest. Unfortunately, this is not the usual result, due to the injured tendon being used frequently in everyday activities.

Because of this stress on the quadriceps tendon, the body heals the injured fibers by binding them together with fibrotic adhesions, or scar tissue. This is a normal, protective response of the body, done in an attempt to prevent further damage to the injured area. Unfortunately, this leads to inflexibility in the knee and possibly chronic knee problems.

Customer Reviews

The trick to healing quadriceps tendonitis is getting it to heal with minimal scar tissue - something our Inferno Wraps® are great at! Even with optimum healing, there is almost always less elasticity in previously injured tendons, muscles and ligaments. However, if you heal your quadriceps properly and use our BFST® device to treat scar tissue build up, your chance of re-injury or chronic hamstring conditions later on is much lower than average.

Cold Compression Therapy
The Knee Freezie Wrap treats pain, swelling and inflammation caused by tendon strain.

Using cold compression to treat quadriceps tendinitis reduces pain, swelling, and tissue damage.

Cold Compression Therapy works by interrupting and slowing nerve and cell function in the damaged area. This is important because once blood vessels are damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood to the quadriceps tendon and tissue cells begin to break-down. The Knee Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat yourself in an effective and convenient way and rid yourself of the pain of quadriceps tendinitis above the knee.

How to Order

The deep cold provided by the Knee Freezie Wrap® slows cell function thereby reducing cellular break-down. Furthermore, because the cold wrap serve to numb the nerves, the wrap also reduces pain! The Knee Freezie Wrap® uses a deep cold gel pack with a medical-grade neoprene compression cover to keep the ice off the skin preventing cryoburn and to surround your kneecap with soothing cold.

BFST® increases tissue elasticity while promoting the flow of blood (filled with vital oxygen and nutrients) to your quadriceps tendon. This cleans the injured area by getting rid of damaged tissue and reducing the inflammation, opening up the blood vessels to begin healing.

MendMyKnee Customer Reviews

For those who suffer from the long term knee conditions of tendinosis, tenosynovitis or other injuries like ACL or meniscus tears, BFST® can help. With dedication to your Inferno Wrap® therapy you can soften the tough and inelastic scar tissue that has built up on in your knee and regain the range of motion in your joint.

Hamstring pulls can lead to other overuse injuries if left untreated. The pain of a pulled hamstring can cause you to re-adjust your posture and change your gait to take weight off your sore hamstring muscles. This can cause excess strain in your back, hip, knees and ankles. The Leg / Universal Inferno Wrap® can be used to treat all of your strains and tears, as well as other painful conditions like bursitis, tendinitis, and joint pain. It is a great tool to have on hand for so many soft tissue injuries!

MendMeShop® Inferno Wrap® - Improved Range of Motion!

 

One of the most common complaints after a quadriceps injury begins to heal is tightness and a limited range of motion. The tightness is caused by tough fibrous scar tissue build up on the muscles and/or tendons. Scar tissue is the body's way to heal tissue quickly. It forms at the site of the injury to repair tears, small or large. Although it repairs the tears, scar tissue is inflexible, prone to re-tearing, and can cause pain. Healthy tissue is stronger and more elastic. Healthy tissue allows your muscles and tendons to expand and contract easily, without pain and with less risk of tearing again. Treating scar tissue is the only way to restore muscle function properly and get your range of motion back!

The Inferno Wrap® is an effective and pain-free way to soften scar tissue and return your muscle tissue to a more flexible, stronger state. Physical therapy, manipulation, and deep tissue massage can help to treat scar tissue but these methods are expensive, time consuming, painful, and in some cases, may require further tearing to loosen the scar tissue.

A personal Inferno Wrap® allows you to treat your quadriceps injury conveniently using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy in your own home, on your schedule, and for less time and money than any other method. Inferno Wraps® also increase the flexibility of the muscle tissue, which speeds along the healing process and decreases your chance of re-injury. A 15 to 25 minute treatment, twice a day, will speed healing and further reduce your painful quadriceps injury while improving the range of motion in your upper leg. That's all it takes to get your hamstring muscle back to normal and you back to your activities!

Once the inflammation and swelling of quadriceps tendonoitis has been alleviated, nourishing and strengthening the tendon tissue in the knee is recommended. Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy will speed your recovery and heal your soft connective and muscular tissue more completely preparing your knee for strengthening exercises. Talk to your doctor or physical therapist to find out which exercises are appropriate for your situation.

Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy
MendMeShop Knee Inferno Wrap speeds the healing of the soft tissue surrounding the patella to strengthen your entire knee following quadriceps tendinitis.

After the inflammation and swelling above your kneecap and around your quadriceps tendon is reduced, you can begin to treat your entire knee with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy, or BFST®.

BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your knee to nourish your meniscal cartilage, tendons, ligaments and muscles and speed healing.

By treating yourself with BFST® you can increase your body's blood supply to the knee and your body's natural healing power. In addition, the fresh blood flow whisks away dead cells and toxins that have built up from the tissue damage of quadriceps tendinitis leaving the area clean and able to heal faster.

The Knee Inferno Wrap® provides the most effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects. During your recovery, you will probably have to modify and/or eliminate any activities that cause pain or discomfort in your knee until your pain and inflammation settle. Taking the time to care for your knee properly will have your quadriceps tendon back to normal faster and allow you to get back to the activities you enjoy.

How to Order

During your recovery, you will probably have to modify and/or eliminate any activities that cause pain or discomfort in your knee area until your pain and inflammation settle.

With these 3 easy therapies you will notice incredible improvement in your knee. The more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results!

We recommend that you consult your doctor and/or physiotherapist before using any of our outstanding products, to make sure they're right for you and your condition.
