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.

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.

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.

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.

Hamstring Cramps

Hamstring muscle cramp occurs when the muscles in the upper thigh contract involuntarily.

The hamstring muscles, along with the quadriceps, calves, feet, hands, and abdominals are the most common muscle groups affected by cramps. It is estimated that 95% of the populations will have a cramp at some time during their life, with the risk of cramping increasing with age.

A muscle cramp may occur during activity but can also occur when you are sitting or even sleeping. Cramps can be a minor annoyance or extremely painful and can cause you to immediately stop whatever you are doing until the pain passes.

A cramp can involve the entire muscle, only part of it, or the group of muscles that act together (i.e. the hamstring group of muscles; semitendinosus, biceps femoris, and semimembranosus).

The hamstring muscles are long muscles that cross 2 joints, your hip and knee, and work by contracting and expanding.

The contraction and expansion motion of the hamstring muscles is determined by the signals that are sent to the brain. When a muscle contracts involuntarily (i.e. the signal for the muscle to contract overcomes the signal for it to expand, or relax) it can result in a hamstring muscle cramp.

In some cases, a severe muscle cramp may not release on its own and stretching it manually may be necessary to help relax and lengthen the contracted muscle. If the connective tissue attached to the muscle is weak or the cramp is particularly severe, it may cause the tendons or ligaments to strain or tear. For someone with weak bone structure (i.e. severe osteoporosis), muscle cramps have even been known to cause bone fractures.

Causes of Hamstring Cramp

A muscle cramp is caused by abnormal activity in the hamstrings, either in the nerve signals or within the muscles themselves. This abnormal activity can be caused by:

  • Vigorous activity - the cramp may occur during the activity or several hours later.
  • Muscle fatigue from overexerting or repetitive use of the muscle, or from sitting in an awkward position.
  • Lactic acid build up when overloading or overexerting the muscle.
  • Hamstring muscle cramps occur with muscle fatigue.
  • Low electrolyte levels or dehydration - Muscles require water, calcium, magnesium, and potassium to function properly.
  • A muscle that has been overstetched or held in one position for a long time.
  • New exercises that involve unused muscles.
  • Inadequate blood supply caused by narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis).
  • Multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, other nervous system diseases, or spinal cord damage.
  • Disease such as diabetes, kidney disease, anemia, or thyroid abnormalities.

Hamstring Cramp Symptoms

When you experience a cramp in the hamstring muscles you may feel:

  • A sudden burst of pain, often severe, that stops after a few seconds to a few minutes.
  • A bulge in the cramped muscle that will feel very hard and tense.
  • Tenderness and swelling that may last for several days.
  • Night time wakening if the cramps occur during sleep (nocturnal cramps).

Treating a Cramp in the Hamstring Muscle

Step 1 - Reduce Pain & Swelling with the Leg Freezie Wrap®

The 1st step for conservative treatment of your hamstring injury is to reduce swelling to "open up" the area for more blood flow. Anyone in the health-care business knows that your blood supplies the oxygen and much needed nutrients required for your hamstring to heal naturally. This is why doctors and surgeons recommend cold compression therapy within the first 72 hours of an injury and following meniscus surgery.

Cold should be used for new injuries or right after re-injury.

Cold compression therapy is recommended to reduce pain, swelling and tissue damage. Many doctors, surgeons and physical therapists consider cold compression therapy to be the gold standard for treatment of inflammation and pain. On-going cold compression treatments can reduce, or even eliminate, the need for NSAIDs or other medications that can be harmful to your body.

Cold compression therapy is known and trusted by most medical professionals. This is why for years doctors, trainers and other medical professionals have recommended RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to treat the pain and swelling of fresh injuries, chronic pain, after any re-injury, and especially after surgery.

Although RICE can help to treat these symptoms, ice and inferior gel packs reach temperatures so low they can cause cryoburn, an ice burn on your skin. The problem is, up until now there hasn't been any other option to treat painful conditions and injuries with effective cold compression, so ice and blue gel packs (full of anti-freeze and chemicals) have been the only choice up until now.

The Freezie Wrap treats pain, swelling and inflammation while reducing tissue damage.

Fortunately you no longer have to settle for these ice cold methods that are uncomfortably cold against your skin, provide short term relief, cause ice burns, and numb your skin and underlying tissue beyond feeling so you don't even notice the ice burn until it's too late. You can also get rid of those cold packs that warm up soon after you pull them out of the freezer and gel that pools around your injury putting the short-term cold everywhere expect for where you need it most - on your hamstring injury!

The Leg Freezie Wrap® is the cold compression tool you need for your post-surgical recovery to treat yourself in an effective and convenient way.

When used on a hamstring injury, our Leg Freezie Wrap® provides:

  • The highest-level of cold compression to quickly decrease pain, swelling, inflammation and draw the heat out of your hamstring.
  • Tailored wraps that are available to conform around and treat your hamstring.
  • Effective cold compression that is unlike any other cold compression wrap out there.
  • Cold temperatures that stay right over your hamstring injury for the entire length of your treatment.
  • A home-based solution with consistent (daily) cold treatments that reduces swelling fast, and opens up your hamstring to receive the blood flow circulation needed to heal quickly and naturally.
  • Heavier, more substantial gel packs containing a special formulation of gel - called RigiGel®.

What's RigiGel®?

RigiGel® is our trademarked name for a unique gel formula that's made of food-grade, non-toxic material that holds the cold for an extended period of time. This specially formulated gel also features non-migrating gel technology that makes our line of Freezie Wraps® truly different from any other wrap available on the market.

RigiGel® is a patented formula that gives you:

RigiGel's unique gel formula offers non-migrating gel that stays put over your knee injury.
  • More cooling power per pound than standard cold compression wraps.
  • More gel than other wraps, meaning every time you put one on it will keep your hamstring cold for a longer period; pain relief is enhanced and swelling is better controlled.

Our special RigiGel® packs can be chilled in the fridge or freezer to tailor the amount of cold that you need for your injury. It doesn't matter how you cool it down, because our gel packs are chock full of gel that's designed to cool down into millions of tiny snowflakes. This method of cooling means our gel packs aren't icy-cold, just perfectly cold enough to give you the most effective cold compression available.

The cushioned gel will wrap around your leg and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling around your hamstring or have to hold a hard block of ice on your injury!


Effective Cold Compression Therapy slows nerve and cell function - reducing the swelling that blocks blood vessels from doing their job.

 

Treat yourself with effective cold compression to reduce pain and swelling from your hamstring injury.

This is important because once blood vessels are blocked or damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood through the tissue and tissue cells begin to break-down. Without cold compression therapy cellular break-down and tissue damage continues as the cells don't get the oxygen they need to survive. By limiting the amount of damage done to your hamstring, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal hamstring injuries faster and with less pain! This is why you need to treat your hamstring injury, when you notice pain / swelling / inflammation, or directly after a re-injury. Applying a Leg Freezie Wrap® right away will stop the damage immediately and unblock your blood vessels to let your body's natural blood flow in to start healing the tissue.

The Freezie Wrap® = Effecive Cold Compression Therapy

 

It'll seem weird for you to read this, but there are a LOT of people out there that don't understand how fast cold compression with a Freezie Wrap® can get the swelling / inflammation in your hamstring under control! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start actually dealing with your hamstring injury and the healing needed after surgery.


Use a Cold Compression Leg Freezie Wrap®:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial injury or when you first notice pain and swelling in your hamstring to stop cellular damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
  • After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury of your hamstring.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your hamstring is tender, painful or you're having a flare-up of an old hamstring injury.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your hamstring injury.
 



Step 2 - Improve Circulation & Prevent Re-Injury with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy
Increase blood flow to speed up healing of your hamstring injury.

There are a lot of people that think their hamstring injury is gone after their swelling and inflammation are gone and their leg feels better. They also make the mistake of returning to regular activities too soon without proper time for healing. The truth is that healing takes time and after the swelling is gone your hamstring injury isn't even close to being fully healed.

After the inflammation in and around your hamstring has been reduced, providing extra blood flow and strengthening the tissue in your hamstring is recommended. Believe it or not, the best time for you to focus on avoiding re-injury and strengthening your weakened hamstring is when the swelling's gone and your injury's started to heal. It's vital that you don't go back to activities too soon because you might bring on a major set-back in your recovery...

  • Have you recently re-injured your hamstring by returning to your normal daily activities too quickly?
  • How many times in the past have you aggravated your hamstring injury just trying to perform basic tasks around your house?
  • Is your hamstring preventing you from work or activities you love to do?

If this sounds like you - You're not alone...


Most people we deal with tell us these scenarios have happened to them many times in the past. The real challenge is how to promote blood flow to your injured bursa without causing further injury. This goal is even more complicated by the fact that your hamstring takes on a lot of weight for your leg to support your knee.

Hamstring injuries, tendonitis, torn ligaments and overall leg, knee or hip pain can often occur at the same time - weakening not only your damaged hamstring, but also all of the soft tissue surrounding your hamstring.

 


What can you do to actually start healing your hamstring injury?

Increase blood flow to speed up healing of your hamstring injury.

The answer is simple. Your body can heal itself and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen. Your blood is how everything that's good inside of you is transported directly to your injured hamstring. Your blood carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies right to the source of your injury and pain. Bringing proper blood flow to your injured hamstring is essential to healing.

Promoting blood flow around injured tissue to help the body heal itself is a concept that's been used for centuries. Oxygen and nutrients, carried in your own blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, recovering from your hamstring injury will be delayed... Sometimes for a very long period of time.

Even though the concept is simple, improving blood flow to your hamstring can be difficult. Traditional methods require you to move your damaged hamstring in order to promote blood flow. This same motion that promotes blood flow can also make your pain and hamstring injury much worse (especially if you need to immobilize your leg at any point during your recovery process). Relying on movement alone to increase blood flow puts you in danger of re-injuring your hamstring.

So what do you do when you need to increase blood flow, but you can't move your hamstring without re-injuring your tissue?


This is where the Inferno Wrap® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) come in!

 

The Inferno Wrap increases blood flow to speed up healing, soften scar tissue and prevent re-injury.

Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®), will help with your recovery and heal your hamstring more completely. BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your soft tissue to nourish your hamstring muscle, improving elasticity and speeding the healing process. This increased Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy to your damaged hamstring is greatly needed to complete your healing and avoid re-injury once and for all.

The only way to get BFST® is through use of an Inferno Wrap®.

The Inferno Wrap® is the only treatment method that improves blood flow and circulation on a deep tissue level. Other methods of warming / heating tissue (hot water bottles, hot baths, etc) will only ever increase blood flow on a surface / skin level. These methods need a LOT of time to even reach your damaged hamstring on a deep tissue level. And even if you were to use them this long your skin would heat up to an uncomfortable level and may even burn you.

The best source of heat treatment is from a product where you don't even feel that much heat. When you don't feel the heat, it means the therapy is working in your deep soft tissue which is really where you need it. It's kind of like how your heart works in your body. You can't "feel" your heart pumping blood all around your body to your arms and legs. You can't even hear your own heartbeat without listening very closely. This is exactly how deep tissue BFST® works too!

You're not supposed to "feel" a lot of heat because the heat isn't treating your skin, it's treating your hamstring, increasing the blood flow right where your injury is!

Increase blood flow to speed up healing of your hamstring injury and recovery process.
  • When treating a hamstring injury, an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while the leg is immobile.
  • This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself.
  • The Inferno Wrap® is the most highly effective blood flow stimulation device that you'll find on the market that is approved by the FDA for use in the home or hospital.

Regular treatments with a Leg Inferno Wrap® can reduce pain and stiffness from scar tissue and increase overall flexibility in your leg. Increased blood flow will whisk away damaged tissue, toxins, and any bacteria in your injured hamstring to promote more effective healing. Getting rid of toxins will allow all of the positive healing processes to start in your injury. Increasing blood flow will also increase the amount of oxygen that's being sent to your injured tissue AND boost your tissue's ability to absorb oxygen. (reference: 1)


How Does the Inferno Wrap® Promote BFST®?

Electromagnetic energy increases blood flow on a deep tissue level.

Every Leg Inferno Wrap® contains a patented Energy Web® that's flexible and shaped to conform around your leg. The Energy Web® provides a uniform wave of healing electromagnetic energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels deep inside your soft tissue to stimulate blood flow on the deep tissue level where it's needed to heal your injury. It's the electromagnetic energy provided provided by our Inferno Wraps® that's crucial to the healing process.

Electromagnetic energy is the only way to get your blood flow moving on a deep tissue level for these reasons:

  • Electromagnetic energy waves are not heat waves.

  • When emitted from the Inferno Wrap®, electromagnetic energy waves penetrate right through your skin and fat layers until they get to your damaged tissue.
  • Once these energy waves reach your injured hamstring, they're absorbed and quickly converted into heat energy right at the location of your injury
  • The idea of electromagnetic energy waves is slowly catching on in North American, but the truth is, it's a technology that's been used for decades
Electromagnetic energy has been studied by researchers for decades.

Many people just don't know that over the past 30 years, researchers in Japan and China have completed extensive studies on the use of electromagnetic energy for healing and their findings have been impressive. Success has been reported in studies from countries like Sweden and Germany. Research is continuing and soon, much of North American will know what the Far East and Europe has known for a long time...

Electromagnetic energy provides a wide range of health benefits for those not only suffering from a hamstring injury, but for many other soft tissue injuries as well.

Regular treatment with the electromagnetic energy in our Inferno Wraps® will ensure:

  • Your pain will be reduced.
  • Your injured hamstring will heal at an accelerated rate with reduced potential for re-injury.
  • Your hamstring will have a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue. (Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link - Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)


Electromagnetic Energy = Increased Blood Flow = More Oxygen, More Nutrients and Less Toxins = Faster Healing

 

Get a superior level of blood flow circulation with a BFST Inferno Wrap.

Our Inferno Wraps® are uniquely patented designs that are better than other alternatives out there for more than just the electromagnetic energy they provide! Our wraps are made from medical-grade material - this should be as important to you as it is to us. Other products that are sold in stores are considered "consumer goods" meaning the material only needs to be as good as a sweater that you wear. Clothing articles like this don't need to meet high standards of production or materials and may include materials that irritate your skin.

Since our wraps are medical-grade products registered with the FDA, they are of a higher quality and need to meet way more standards for manufacturing (ISO 10993 - biocompatibility testing). This makes our wraps the safest product to increase blood flow circulation.

Our manufacturer has spent years perfecting the wrap design to make sure you get the treatment you deserve!


Use a BFST® Leg Inferno Wrap®:

  • After swelling and inflammation have been reduced with cold compression.
  • Before exercise or workouts to warm up your hamstring to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to warm up your hamstring before physical therapy exercising or stretching.
  • Anytime you feel your hamstring has stiffened up, is tight and your mobility is reduced causing you more pain.
  • Anytime you have sore or aching tissue in your hamstring.
  • Any other situation where you need to increase blood flow to your hamstring to relax your soft tissue, relieve pain, prevent re-injury and enhance flexibility of your tissue.
 


Step 3 - Use the Knee-Flex® to Exercise At Home & Prevent Scar Tissue Build-Up
Stretching is needed for recovery from a hamstring injury

The final step in hamstring injury recovery is stretching - this is a critical step for complete recovery from your strained hamstring!

When your hamstring is injured, stretching plays a huge role in treating your injury with or without surgery... This is especially true if you're immobilizing your leg after surgery with a cast, brace or by using crutches. Long-term immobilization of your leg can lead to massive amounts of scar tissue that stiffens the entire area and causes your surrounding tissue to atrophy (waste away).

For many people stretching seems like a basic thing but you'd be surprised by how many people there are that don't understand the importance of stretching any hamstring injury, especially after surgery.

Each of your legs support an intense amount of weight everyday. When you suffer from a hamstring injury you're unable to support your own weight in the same way you used to. This can make simple tasks like walking or even standing extremely difficult for you. A full recovery from your hamstring injury depends on your commitment to stretching and strengthening exercises.

Physical therapists will manually manipulate your leg to increase flexibility of your hamstring.

Physical therapists prescribe gentle stretching of your hamstring before making the transition to crutches after surgery and as you recover from having to use immobilization tools like a brace. They don't prescribe this to annoy you - it's in fact the most important part of your hamstring recovery. You probably know someone that chose not to do any stretching - and they paid a high price for it. By not listening to their therapist (ie. not stretching), there is a huge chance of re-injurying your hamstring or even getting a more serious injury than your original hamstring injury.

Ask any physical therapist and they'll tell you the key to a successful recovery is commitment to at home exercise!


Our Knee-Flex Passive Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms.

It may seem hard to believe but it's true... Stretching is the secret of healing your hamstring injury. Consistent stretching is one of the only solutions to break up scar tissue that forms in your hamstring muscle as it heals.

You can achieve safe, consistent, controlled leg movement and stretching with the Knee-Flex® Passive Hamstring Stretching Device. This device is designed to provide you with a sturdy track to move your leg; allowing you to stretch out and elongate the soft tissue in your hamstring, work out scar tissue and increase your overall flexibility / mobility.

Stretching is amazing for your hamstring and will bring your overall hamstring injury recovery to a whole new level. Stretching with a Cold Compression Leg Freezie Wrap® and BFST® Leg Inferno Wrap® is even better!

 


The Knee-Flex® is a Special Design Created for People Just Like You

The Knee-Flex is a unique design that gives you the consistent hamstring stretching you need.

I spent a very long time searching for this treatment option to specifically aid in the recovery of hamstring injuries. I was introduced to a carpenter (let's call him Paul) about 1 year ago. Paul had designed and created this device especially for his friend Earl that was trying to recover from a bad knee injury. The muscles, tendons and ligaments in and around his knee joint were seizing up from decreased use (immobility).

Earl was instructed by his doctor to put his foot in a plastic garbage bag while sitting. After his foot was in the bag, Earl was supposed to stretch his leg and strengthen his knee by sliding his foot forward and backward across the floor. Earl complained of the intense pain he felt when the bag would crease, fold over, and jerk his knee around with inconsistent movement. If Earl had continued down this path, he would've re-injured his knee and end up with even more serious injuries in his hip, lower back, thigh and foot!

The Knee-Flex sturdy hardwood track gives you an easy gliding motion that helps you exercise and stretch in the comfort of your own home.

Luckily for Earl, his friend Paul created the very first Knee-Flex® Passive Stretching Device. Earl's knee recovered 10 years ago, but Paul continues making more and more of the Knee-Flex® devices every year - mostly for therapy clinics and hospitals in Canada that keep asking for his Knee-Flex® Device.

This seemingly simple device has assisted in the recovery of thousands of patients that have suffered many various injuries. Once a patient is on the path to healing, this device assists the patient in making a fast and full recovery.

The Knee-Flex® Passive Hamstring Stretching Device helps with:

  • Hamstring post-surgery rehabilitation efforts.
  • Recovery from serious hamstring injuries.
  • Increasing flexibility in surrounding tendons, ligaments and muscles.
  • Stretching out scar tissue that forms while your hamstring heals with or without surgery.
  • Decreasing muscle stiffness.
  • Preventing atrophy in surrounding soft tissue from immobilization.

The value of this device cannot be underestimated.

Anyone suffering from a strained hamstring knows the importance of stretching their hamstring smoothly and without excessive load. The Knee-Flex® operates without the use of tension bands or any added force aside from the weight of your own leg. Basically, if you're on the road to recovery from a hamstring injury or recovering from surgery, this device is the first thing your would start using to gain flexibility back in your muscle.

 


The Knee-Flex® = A Medical Grade Device Used by the Experts

The Knee-Flex is extremely portable, giving you the option to bring it in to your physical therapists office.

The Knee-Flex® Hamstring Stretching Device was created to allow your heel to slide smoothly in a controlled environment, minimizing the chance of re-injury and additional pain. Physical therapists encounter the same issues every day when attempting to work with people who are undergoing therapy from a serious hamstring injury or recovery from hamstring surgery. This is why most therapists in Canada instantly purchased these same devices for their own clinics and have been ordering this device for 10 years!

If you're recovering from serious pain, it allows a more controlled and comfortable method to stretch and strengthen your hamstring as well as all of the soft tissue (tendons, ligaments, muscles) in your entire leg. The sliding mechanism is extremely smooth and durable, as well as linear - something that becomes very important in such cases.


The Knee-Flex is an FDA registered device, under facility number 30006334471 and product listing number D150272

The Knee-Flex® is an FDA Registered Medical Device and is suitable for repetitive, industrial usage in hospitals and therapeutic clinics. This device is deemed safe to use without medical assistance and is also available for use at home.


When used properly, the Knee-Flex® has a proven track record of assisting in the speedy recovery of many people suffering from hamstring injuries. With regular use of the Knee-Flex® at home, you'll be able to:

Our Knee-Flex Passive Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms.
  • Build muscle strength in your hamstring.
  • Increase mobility and range of motion (ROM) in your hamstring.
  • Speed overall healing of your hamstring injury.
  • Prevent soft tissue muscle loss (atrophy) in your hamstring.
  • Improve soft tissue / muscular function and capability.
  • Encourage overall leg flexibility.
  • Facilitate a proper warm up for regular exercise.
  • Promote healthy circulation in your hamstring and all of the tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints in your leg.

Knee-Flex® Stretching = The Best Way to
Deal With Scar Tissue

 

Scar tissue grows to protect your hamstring when it's injured.

Even when you're injured and in pain you need to keep moving to break up scar tissue that's forming around your hamstring. Moving when you're injured is hard. Since moving while injured can be painful - most people think it's better to stop moving, rest their body and hope that their hamstring will heal all on its' own. Even though rest is important to recovery too much rest during the recovery process will increase the amount of scar tissue on your hamstring.

During the healing process your body will fill in tears in your soft tissue with dense, brittle tissue called "scar tissue". The human body will use scar tissue as a temporary solution and will try to build the scar tissue as fast as possible to heal the area. Scar tissue can form fast to bind everything together in and around your injured hamstring, but working fast doesn't mean that the job's done right. When scar tissue forms it doesn't come together as neatly as regular (healthy) soft tissue would. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of the damage in your hamstring in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.

Imagine throwing a bunch of drinking straws in the air... Those straws will land in a random, unorganized way. It seems silly to think that those straws could land perfectly straight and all in the same direction.

This is how scar tissue works. The scar tissue that forms on your hamstring will be unorganized and won't line up properly with the healthy tissue surrounding your muscle. This scar tissue will also attach to everything in and around your hamstring, including the surrounding healthy tissue as well. This can result in a long-term fusing together of your tissue that stiffens up your entire leg, reducing your mobility and making your hamstring injury even more painful!

Scar tissue builds on the hamstring muscle as your strain heals. The build up causes pain and inflexibility making your muscle more prone to further injury.

This is why scar tissue is weak and only a temporary solution to heal your hamstring injury. Scar tissue is something that needs to be dealt with fast. If you try to get back into your regular daily activities with a mound of scar tissue on your hamstring you'll have a higher risk of re-injury. Scar tissue is just not built to withstand the pressures of regular activity.

If you have an injured hamstring with a lot of scar tissue and re-injure that tissue, even more scar tissue will grow to fill in those tears. If you keep falling into the dangerous cycle of re-injuring your hamstring without proper treatment you could end up with massive amounts of scar tissue on your hamstring. Your ability to move this muscle in a normal way will be impaired as the amount of scar tissue increases.


The only solution to truly repair your pulled hamstring muscle for good is to break up scar tissue and avoid re-injury.

 

This can easily be achieved with regular use of the Knee-Flex® Passive Hamstring Stretching Device. This device provides a sturdy hardwood track with an easy gliding motion giving you the same stretch everytime. Your movement is controlled reducing your risk of re-injury. The result is a consistent stretch that helps to break down your scar tissue and improve flexibility during your post-op recovery.

Dear MendMeShop,

Hi Paul. I thank you for your personal follow up. I have bought several of your products and I will tell you right now the Inferno Wraps are the BEST. I was in a walking boot last December for what was diagnosed as moderately severe tendonosis. Surgery was recommended. Instead I gave it time and started using the Freezie Wrap and the Inferno Wrap. After consistent and continued use of the Inferno Wrap I am 100% good to go! Your products are the best! Walker S

Dear MendMeShop,

My husband, who is in his 50's was feeling pain in his Achilles on one foot. He kept walking on it till it became inflamed and impossible to walk on. My husband sought out help from our Chiropractor, the treatments were very expensive and he could only get one a day. He couldn't walk on it at all. Just moving any part of his body caused him great pain. Going to see anyone would prove unworkable. I couldn't get him in the car as he could not even move his leg. I researched Achilles tendon injury on line. I found an article about the Inferno Wrap. The cost would be far less than trips to the Doctor. It was only a matter of days before he was able to get out of bed once we started the treatments as recommended. It was a week and he was off the crutches. He was able to get back to work after three weeks. He still uses the inferno boot when his Achilles feels sore. I am very grateful for your products and highly recommend them.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have used the Hip inferno device for 9 days now. The results so far are great. I have bursitis and have been getting injections which were helping less and less. With your product, the pain has lessened dramatically. The swelling has gone down as well as the tingling and the numbness in my hip. This is remarkable and welcomed relief as I have a vacation planned in 2 weeks and now I can't wait. You spoke to me on the phone about a back product as I have chronic back pain from an L5-S1 Spondylolithesis. I can't remember which but if you can suggest it again I would like to try it. Again Thanks for your concern and your product. It has certainly increased the "Quality of my Life" already. Regards Steve

Dear MendMeShop,

I have to admit, I fully expected to be returning my order. (inferno wrap, freezie wrap) I told my wife "this is a lot of money and if doesn't work I'm sending it back", "I've got 60 days". Well after about 9 days of (2) treatments per day my severe case of Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow) is almost pain free. I tried wearing the over the counter tendon support brace with absolutely no results. My elbow pain was so bad I couldn't sleep at night and just knew I was going to have to see a doctor. Then I found your website. I was very impressed with the quality of your wraps, very thick and made form high quality materials. I guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" speaks volumes here. I'm completely sold on your products and won't be returning anything!!! Thank you for helping heal my tennis elbow and I've already told many of my friends about your web site. 100% satisfied Cameron Caldwell from Meriden, KS.

Dear MendMeShop,

Two years ago, after returning to the gym for the first time in over a decade, I developed intense lower back pain which radiated into my left hip and leg. I also developed snapping hip syndrome. After many expensive visits to a chiropractor and physical therapist, I gained some relief, but still experienced constant low level pain in the injured areas with episodes of intense debilitating pain which interfered with my sleep and work. After searching online for alternative and cost effective self treatment methods, I discovered your website and purchased your Back/Hip Inferno Wrap and Back/Hip Freezie Wrap. Within a short period of time of using these products, I noticed a huge reduction in pain. Two months later, the pain is barely noticeable, the snapping hip syndrome is an unpleasant memory and I feel that significant long term healing of chronic injuries is taking place. I absolutely LOVE your products, and enthusiastically recommend them to everyone I meet who is experiencing similar pain issues. Kudos to Paul and everyone in your customer service department which is beyond compare in terms of knowledge, promptness and genuine concern for your customers!

Dear MendMeShop,

Over the past eight months I have been suffering from shoulder and arm pain. I just kept thinking that the pain would go away on its own. When I reached the point where I was unable to raise my arm over my head without assistance and forget about putting my arm behind my back. I decided that a trip to the doctor was due. She ruled out that I had an injury to the Rotator Cuff itself and determined that I had a soft tissue injury. Due to repetitive movement and heavy lifting. She suggested that I try physical therapy. With my work schedule and family obligations I knew that was going to be very difficult and I wanted something that I could fit into my schedule. So I began doing research on the internet for alternative treatments and exercises. That's when I found your product on the internet. I was somewhat skeptical as to rather it would perform as stated, but decided to give it a try. It was stated that it could take up to three weeks to feel results. BUT I am here to say that for myself it has done better. I have been using the Freezie Wrap for a week and have already felt some improvement. I can now raise my arm to just about shoulder height unassisted, and can now almost get my finger tips back behind my back. I make a point of using Freeze Wrap as soon as I get home from work to relieve the stress to my muscles from work and to keep the inflammation down. Now that I have gotten some of the inflammation gone I intend to incorporate the Inferno Wrap treatment to my regiment to just before going bed to aid the healing process and aid in a better night's sleep.

Dear MendMeShop,

Just want to let you know that I've had a chance to use the Freeze Wrap. I fell down on my tail bone and injured it slightly. I put the Freeze Wrap on my behind every night while watching TV, and it seems to help it a lot. I alternate between the 2 ice packs, keeping one in the freezer at all times. Thought you might be interested in this for the follow-up of your products. Will recommend your products highly to anyone interested. Sincerely, Irene
