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.

I constantly use the Leg Inferno Wrap for my thigh and hamstring pain......love walking/running. It's great for shin splints.... feels good when muscle gets hot.
Really helped when I woke up one morning with a lower leg deep vein Thrombosis really bed with the combo of whey protein; herbs for inflammation; and wearing this I was able to start running again in three weeks and walk normally in 2 weeks.
Constantly use every evening and feels good after;
For anyone like me it's a great product.
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.

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 Boo[See Full Review]tcamp soon.
This (Back/Hip Inferno) wrap is amazing! I am already feeling the difference of pain level in my hip thank you.

Just had to share my story. My son who was 17 years old at the time he's now 18, was complaining of pain in both his knees.
We took him to the Dr who told us he had torn cartilage in both knees and would need arthroscopic surgery on both knees to t[See Full Review]ake out the torn cartilage. At this young age I did not want him to loose what cartilage he had as it leads to other problems when you get older.
The orthopedic surgeon wanted to do surgery right away before more damage was done. He had surgery on his left knee and they took out 35% of his cartilage. I went to the internet for help ,hoping there was a better way to solve his problem in his other knee.
That's when I found the Mend me shop.
I showed the articles to his Surgeon and told him I wanted to try it before he had more surgery done. He said it was probably just another internet scam but I went ahead and ordered it anyway sine they have a 60 day return policy. What did we have to lose, nothing. To my surprise the inferno wrap took most of my son's pain, clicking and soreness away.
His knee feels like new again and he's back to paying basketball. I have never responded to any product before but I feel strongly about these products, they really do work, I wish I had saved him from having surgery on his other knee.
So if you are having the same issues give these products a try you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!!!!!![Close Review]

I'm grateful for the Inferno products. After a month or so, I began to feel so much better with my shoulder, leg, and my back.
It's a magnificent healing product. I recommend it to everyone I know. If it weren't for your product, I would have had[See Full Review] to have surgery and who is to say that would have worked - or made it worse.
After more than a year of pain in my left arm I was at my wit's end!
I was tired of taking pain pills every time I exerted myself. My doctor had prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs and a brace for my elbow, but after a year, and numerous visits to[See Full Review] the doctor, it kept getting worse.
Then my wife found the Inferno Wrap.
I was leery and I told her so. She said - well it will cost you $150.00 to visit the doctor again and it hasn't helped yet, so why not give it a try?"
She ordered it and the first couple of times I used it my elbow hurt a bit more than before, but after a week, I began to see some improvement.
By 3 months it was much better, and today it doesn't bother me at all. I recommended it to my doctor on my next visit!
Now I tell everyone to get one! My wife and I both use it now (as she recently injured her elbow).
Getting old is not fun, but the Inferno Wrap definitely works and definitely helps! I highly recommend it![Close Review]

MendMe products are the Cadillac of at-home treatment options.
They are robustly constructed to provide superior heat or cold contact to the injured area and the fit is incredibly precise and adaptable.
My husband and I use them repeatedly as t[See Full Review]ypical ageing athletes with lots of old injuries. I have loaned them to friends on my paddle tennis team and everyone raves.
Yes, they cost a bit more but save untold thousands in visits to chiropractors, physical therapists and doctors.
I have only used the inferno heat wrap for about 2 weeks for a fairly significant achilles tendon problem that has plagued me for several months. A recent MRI shows partial tears and an irregular shape to part of the tendon.
It seems to me I am ge[See Full Review]tting amazing results already from use of the products I purchased. I am back to playing tennis on a limited basis and realize I need to show restraint but it certainly appears I am on the mend.
I am extremely impressed by the professionalism of your company and the personnel that I have talked to in the ordering process.[Close Review]
I am writing to let everyone know how wonderfully the Inferno Wrap works! I'd been suffering with plantar fascitis for a month, I tried a splint, shoe inserts, rest, ice, stretching. It was improving, oh so slowly. However, once I got my I[See Full Review]nferno Wrap, everything changed and within two days I was walking on my foot!
I still get pain after being on my feet all night at work, and reapply the Wrap when I go home and am good to go again. It's a miracle! The fact that you have a money back guarantee makes it so safe to purchase.
I have been using the Leg/Arm Inferno Wrap for almost a week now and cannot believe how much the tendonitis in my arm has improved. It's a great product.

I am very pleased, especially with the inferno wrap. At first when I received it, I was wondering if it was going to really help, more than my heating pad.
I can tell you today, my wrist has gotten so much better!
I use the inferno wrap every even[See Full Review]ing in my down time before heading to bed, on the weekend did use it much more and believe that did help. I had severely stretched/pulled the tendons in my wrist, became very painful, going about the routines of life.
I am so very happy with the purchase and am a big fan of the Mendmeshop, thanks for helping me to get my life back on the road to being somewhat normal!
I do like the freezie wrap too, being able to put it on and leave it there but still move around.
I will surely recommend your site to anyone I know in the future that injures themselves and wants to be on the road to recovery as soon as possible.[Close Review]

I purchased this product recently for my plantar fasciitis. I've been using it about a week, and it has helped a lot with the pain when I first get out of my bed in the morning.
I previously tried something else, that was more like a sock, that pull[See Full Review]ed the toes, and that only caused pain.
This [night splint] is very comfortable to wear, and I love how much I'm able to adjust it!
This is Rob Long - Melissa's husband. I wanted to write another review and rave about the Inferno Wrap. I received both the cold and hot wraps last week. After using the wraps about 6 times now i can already tell a big difference with the soreness. Y[See Full Review]ou guys are the best!!!
I also last year purchased the hot wrap & cold wrap for my planter injury this injury has healed 100%!!![Close Review]

I'm sorry I missed your call to tell you how pleased I am with the [inferno] wrap. I've only had it six days and there is some improvement already.
I sprained a ligament in both knees a month ago doing aerobics, and was beginning to feel I would ne[See Full Review]ver heal. The thermal wrap is just wonderful. I will certainly recommend it to anyone I know that needs such treatment.
My husband will be eternally grateful for your product - he has to do the daily vacuuming from our exotic birds and our 3 dogs.
Thank you so much -I love the products I have purchased and use them every day!
My husband and I have been able to share the products as well. I have called the office and received helpful guidance. Really appreciate the help and so glad I found yo[See Full Review]ur products![Close Review]

The cold (Knee Freezie Wrap) & hot (Knee Inferno) wrap combo, along with the knee-flex allowed me to get back to work in half the time I was expecting.
My older son injured his knee & I was able to help him during his visit. He was amazed, & had mo[See Full Review]re recovery progress in a week than he had the 2 weeks prior.
As soon as I began using the shoulder product much of the swelling and pain went away.
I was impressed because I'm a cynical health practitioner. But it does make total sense to move blood flow to tissue that needs to be repaired. There's really no [See Full Review]other way -- except for surgery. And I'm trying to avoid that.
I'd say I have another 30-40% of arm use back.
Thank you MendMeShop for creating such a simple and effective product. [Close Review]
Two years ago, after returning to the gym for...
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 phy[See Full Review]sical 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![Close Review]

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[See Full Review] 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.[Close Review]

I just wanted to send a huge thank you to your company.
I suffered a fully torn Achilles and unfortunately the system for retired Army officers is not very good -it was 5 weeks before I was seen by a surgeon. He was furious -- but we had to take th[See Full Review]e non surgical route.
After 12 weeks I was cleared and sent to physical therapy - they were dumbfounded with my progress. I shared your products and gracefully explained I would prefer to trust my health to a process that works rather than continue to gamble with a system that is a crap shoot at best. The Doctor agreed!
I love my progress and I work hard each day using the Ankle wrap heat and cold plus the knee flex. Thank you for great products - from a person who DID NOT HAVE SURGERY for a fully ruptured Achilles and the PT is dumbfounded with my progress.
I am so far ahead of my surgical repaired contemporaries.
This is my first testimonial and it would not occurred -- but when I lost my power connector for my heat ankle wrap it was replaced ASAP with no cost I was floored - thank you for mission impossible!![Close Review]

I have been using the Freeze Wraps to reduce the inflammation, for which they worked great.
Last week was the first time I tried the Infernowrap on my right knee and it seems to help just from one treatment. I plan to use it every night when I get [See Full Review]back from work.
I used the knee Inferno wrap again last night and put it on the medium power and it's helping tremendously. I'm able to bend my knee better and walk with more stability without leaning too much on my left knee to compensate for the injured knee.[Close Review]

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[See Full Review] 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 except you need to be near electrical outlet to operate this gadget.
I should say this equipment is a big help to the runners world.[Close Review]
