Dear MendMeShop,

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 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.

Dear MendMeShop,

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 evening 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.

Bursitis Injury Facts Part 2:

Normally, bursa are flat and contain very little fluid. An injured bursa however, is swollen with fluid and not so flat anymore.


The most common bursitis injuries are:
Prepatellar Bursitis (housemaid's knee),
Superficial Infrapatellar Bursitis (clergyman's knee),
Trochanteric Bursitis (hip),
Olecranon Bursitis (student's elbow) and
Subacromial Bursitis (shoulder bursitis).


Deep Bursae separate bare areas of bone from overlapping muscles.
Superficial Bursae separate bare areas of bone from skin or tendons.


Deep Bursae develop in the womb.

Superficial Bursae develop within months to several years after birth.


Household names for various bursitis injuries include: Popeye's Elbow, Miner's Elbow, Weaver's Elbow, Housemaid's Knee, Hod-Carrier's Shoulders, Dustman's Shoulders, Student's Elbow, and Clergyman's Knee

Dear MendMeShop,

A couple of years ago I helped my husband cut firewood on a hillside. I began to experience pain in my Achilles tendon shortly after we had finished getting all of the firewood cut, split and stacked. I limped through the winter and in the spring began to worry that I wouldn't be able to take care of my gardens. I finally went to the doctor and was prescribed physical therapy. The PT did help with the pain but didn't really "cure" the problem. I continued home physical therapy for another year and began to research therapies to help the tendon. I wanted to avoid surgery if possible. I came across the MendMeShop website and read about the products recommended for Achilles tendon. The cost seemed minimal compared to what I had already spent at the doctor and physical therapist. I ordered the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap for the ankle and used them according to the directions. I felt great pain relief and the flexibility in my Achilles returned within a few weeks of treatments. I have also been using a night splint following my last Inferno Wrap night treatment before retiring. With that regimen, I have been able to avoid a surgical tendon correction and have been able to resume my normal busy activities. Thank you MendMeShop for your great products and customer service follow-up of the shipment of products.

Dear MendMeShop,

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 never 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 for your phone call and offer of assistance.

Dear MendMeShop,

Thank you for spending time answering my questions and concerns on the Knee Inferno Wrap and wrist products and how to use them. I appreciate that, and I am impressed with your company's personal availability to personally talk with customers. In a fast pace, seemingly no care, 'all out for my benefit' mentality in our society it is refreshing to know I can go on-line and there are people doing business who do care for their product and the people buying them.
I went on-line to find help in treating my very painful meniscus and other issues Arthroscopic surgery on my right knee, that were more severe that my left knee issues had been, so I could find help in speeding up my recovery and get back on my feet again. Having had the same surgery on my left knee only 6 months prior, I was not able to recover as fast as my left knee had not yet fully recovered enough to take the full load of both knees. The Dr. said nothing about recovery only that I could not even put toe weight on my right knee for 4 weeks. So, with my left knee still in recovery this made life extremely difficult. So much so, I had to go to a wheel chair so I would not ruin either of my knees or my back which is suffering from degenerative discs. My knee issues stem from aging and over-use over the years. They are just wearing out.
I am an active person and was not going to consign myself to a wheel chair for the rest of my life. I had no access to physical therapy treatments in my personal situation. So, I took the bull by the horns and got busy finding out what I could do to help myself recover faster and get back in action physically. And I found your company.
I started my personal quest on Internet, which is all I was able to do physically at the time, and found your company, MendMeShop.com. I read all your info and was impressed with what I read and felt comfortable that you were genuine and were out to help me fully recover. The fully guaranteed refund was a plus to me so that I would not spend a lot lf money for something that I would be stuck with and as well did me no good.
You also had a personal way to contact your company to discuss any concerns I might have in using it. You also had expedited mailing so that I could have your product in a few days so I could get started in my recovery. I was willing to pay the extra mailing cost to get the product faster. You really came through on your end and I had my Inferno Knee Wrap in just a few days. That really firmed up to me that you back up your claims about your product and that you truly cared about me and so I could get onto faster recovery sooner.
After receiving the Inferno Knee Wrap, I was having personal issues in how often to use the Knee Wrap and so I called you to help me with this. I felt that the knee wrap was helping me, but I was finding that I could not use it to the fullest degree the instructions mentioned. You helped me and told me to call you back. From your recommendations, I started experimenting on my own to see what would work for me and I found a workable solution for me personally. Each person is unique and what works for one person may not work for another. So, I recommend not giving up and returning this product until you find what works for you.
Because my knee issues are so severe, it will take longer than I want it to, but I am plugging away and using the Inferno Knee Wrap along with stationery bike exercise and I am seeing progress each day.
Thank you for being there when I needed help in recovery of Arthroscopic Knee Surgery. I appreciate you and your company.

Bursitis Injury Facts Part 3:


On occasion, bacteria can invade a bursa and cause an infection. An infected bursa is known as septic bursitis and can be life-threatening if left untreated. So make sure you see a physician!


Septic bursitis is most common in knee joints and elbow joints as the bursae in these locations are close to the skin and most susceptible to bacterial invasion.


It is not uncommon for bursitis to be misdiagnosed as arthritis.


Bursitis is best avoided by staying in shape, taking frequent breaks from repetitive or laborious tasks and cushioning joints if on them for long periods (ie. kneepads for gardening).


A Bursa can swell to a surprisingly large size. In cases of heavy swelling, your physician may choose to drain fluid from the swollen bursa. If a lump is present in chronic bursitis cases, excision may be required.


Clergyman's Knee comes from a more upright posture when kneeling in comparison to Housemaid's Knee. Patients suffering from gout or syphilis can be at higher risk of contracting Clergyman's Knee.

What is Hip Bursitis?

What is Hip Flexor Bursitis? What is Iliopsoas Bursitis?

How to Use Superior Home Treatments to
Heal & Relieve Pain from Elbow Bursitis Injuries!

 

You might be suffering from Iliopsoas hip bursitis if:

  • You have sharp pain on the side of your hip that may extend down the outside of your thigh or even into the groin area.
  • You have pain that is worse at night when you lye down.
  • You have pain with walking for long periods, climbing stairs or squatting.
Sports with repetitive movements cause many bursitis injuries

If any of those statements are true for you or you're suffering from on-going pain in your hip then you might have an injury called "Iliopsoas hip bursitis".

Many people don't know that hip bursitis is a very real injury affecting the bursa sac in your hip. It can happen to anyone who regularly puts stress with repetitive hip and leg movements as part of your job, sports related activities, acute trama to the hip and/or aging weakness of the tissue around the hip and the bursa.

Hip bursitis is one of those injuries that can really bring down the quality of your life. Anyone - young or old - can suffer from this injury, and if you're active this condition will keep you from doing the things you love to do. It will even start interrupting any of your normal daily tasks and make living life harder than it really needs to be.

Fortunately for you, professional athletes have had access to state of the art treatment therapies for years that allow them to heal more quickly and completely than you or I. This is why athletes that have a serious hip bursitis injury can often get back in the game in a matter of weeks while you could suffer for months or even years (in chronic cases).

With some breakthrough products we have engineered, professional treatment is now available to anyone who needs it.

What You Need to Treat Your Bursitis Injury:

  • A Professional Cold Compression Freezie Wrap® to reduce inflammation of the muscle tissue (as soon as possible).
  • A Deep Tissue Therapeutic Inferno Wrap® to increase Blood Flow Stimulation Therapyto the injured soft tissue (BFST®).
  • A Professional, Minimal Impact Stretching Device, known as the Knee-Flex® to prevent muscle atrophy and gently allow stretching of your affected leg muscles (hip, thigh, quadriceps, hamstring, groin, calf, shins, politeus, IT band, etc).
 

Each joint in the body has a bursa sac. This sac(s) acts as a cushion to the joint between bones and overlying soft tissue. It also provides lubication to reduce friction between tissues and bones as they move across each other.

iliopsoas bursa in the hip

Your hip flexors are among the most powerful muscles and tendons in your body. They are made-up of; iliopsoas are deep set muscles at the front of your hip and the outer hip muscle (tensor fasciae latae), and rectus femoris and sartorius (they lie over top of the iliopsoas muscles in your front, upper thigh area). The hip flexors help you lift your upper leg to your torso or flex your torso towards your thigh as when sitting up from a lying down position). They help to externally rotate your spine and thigh bone, and also limit your hip extension when walking or running.

Iliopsoas Bursitis affects the bursa underneath the tendon of your iliopsoas muscle, which becomes inflamed and irritated when your iliopsoas muscle is overused.


What causes Iliopsoas Hip Bursitis?

Iliopsoas bursitis is an overuse injury that results from overloading the hips with repetitive movements. This can lead to a strain of your iliopsoas muscle(s) and tendon.

People who participate in activities such as golf, hockey, cheerleading, ballet dancing, rowing, gymnastics, and resistance training (sit-ups) are most susceptible to iliopsoas bursitis. This condition is more common in women than men, especially those who have loose ligaments.

Overuse of the Iliopsoas Muscle, changes in equipment or training terrain (mountain bike to road bike, road running to trail running) or changes in the intensity of your activity (increase running time or weight lifting poundage without proper preparation) can result in overexertion, which end in iliopsoas injuries.

Success Stories

Overloading your muscles, tendons and liagments in the hip with a few specific movements such standing and twisting at the waist without moving your feet or rotating your leg outward can cause iliopsoas injuries. Hurdlers, high jumpers, baseball, soccer players, or athletes who are at risk of getting tackled are prone to this type of injury. Others who participate in activities that involve uphill running and/or jumping, lots of kicking, weight training and heavy lifting (lots of bending and squatting) are also at risk.

Iliopsoas syndrome is caused from an abrupt contraction of your iliopsoas muscle, which results in a tear or rupture of your muscle (normally a partial tear where your muscle and tendon connect).



What are the Symptoms of Iliopsoas Hip Bursitis?

If you experience iliopsoas bursitis, or iliopsoas syndrome you may experience similar symptoms of inflammation in the tendon or bursa. Symptoms may also include pain, tenderness, swelling, heat or redness and loss of normal mobility.

Iliopsoas bursitis pain patterns

Pain and tenderness are the most common symptoms and are experienced with iliopsoas bursitis. The pain is found deep in your groin and radiates around to the front of your hip or upper thigh area, and can follow the length of the tendon down toward your knee; it will often move into your lower back and buttock area as well.

Often the reason for the pain is known such as one specific event. Sometimes there may be no major reason or injury that brings it on. If you have iliopsoas bursitis you may experience a slow onset of pain and tenderness that builds up over a long period of time. If you have iliopsoas syndrome, your pain and tenderness will be sudden and sharp.

Pain will generally be experienced for a short period of time during activities like jogging or kicking a ball. You may experience pain when getting up from a seated position, extending your leg while driving, walking up stairs, lifting something heavy or bringing your knee up to your chest (especially against resistance). You may notice that you find it difficult to lie down comfortably without support. Occasionally pain diminishes while in doing an activity, but it returns with a extreme pain when you stop your activity. Average time from initial onset of symptoms to diagnosis ranges generally between 32 and 41 months.

Weakness in your upper thigh/hip area especially when lifting up your knee which results in a limp when walking or running are common with hip bursitis.

Hip stiffness and tightness in groin as well as the knee, can result from a tight iliopsoas muscle. Swelling and increasing amounts of fluid in the bursa can cause added pressure and increased pain and may be accompanied by redness and warmth in the groin.

You may experience clicking, snapping and/or popping hip sounds (crepitus) in your hip. Along with an inflamed iliopsoas bursa or snapping hip syndrome caused by your iliopsoas tendon catching on your pelvis when your hip is flexed. This will also occur with a severe or complete iliopsoas tear. If you have a complete tear it will generally prevent you from walking upstairs.

How do I diagnose Iliopsoas Bursitis?

Diagnosing iliopsoas bursitis can be difficult as many conditions (iliopsoas tendinitis, hip flexor muscle strain, iliofemoral ligament sprain, etc.) have bursitis-like symptoms. Your doctor will need to narrow down the possibilty by run tests to determine if your pain is caused by bursitis or by muscle or joint injury, local bleeding, synovitis, arthritis, tendonitis, cellulitis or a number of other conditions.

See a doctor for an accurate diagnosis and to ensure your bursitis is not infectious.

You will generally be asked to complete a series of movements to measure your active (performed by you) and passive (performed by your examiner) range of motion. These movements will test any possible, as well as your leg/hip strength, joint stability, and location of tenderness. If you feel sharp pain with both of these motions you may have hip bursitis and/or other related conditions.

In order to rule out other conditions your doctor may recommend blood tests, an x-ray or MRI to investigate your bone structure and/or to examine the soft tissues and fluid in your hip.

Fluid Removal - Your doctor may aspirate (use a needle) to remove fluid from the bursa to check for possible staphylococcus epidermis (or staphylococcus aureus) bacterial infection. The knee and elbow tend to be the joints that are prone to septic (infectious) bursitis. If infection is detected you will be prescribed an antibiotic to treat it.

illiopsoas x-ray

X-rays - X-rays will provide a two-dimensional image of the overall structure of your pelvis. Although bursitis cannot be diagnosed from an X-ray, they are helpful in identifying other possible causes of pain and/or ruling out other conditions.

Some other possible causes of pain that an x-ray can identify include instability, abnormal bone shapes (bone spurs or bone cysts), wear and tear on the joints, avulsion fractures (when a fragment of bone tears away from the main bone along with the muscle, tendon, or ligament as a result of trauma), dislocations, arthritis, calcium deposits in the bursa or joint, and/or other problems.

illiopsoas mri

MRI and CT Scans - You doctor may also order an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) or a CT (computed tomography) scan for more detailed information to help evaluate the soft tissues (bursa, muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and other connective tissues) in and around your hip joint. They will show fluid next to the muscle, and may identify bursitis, tendinitis, inflammation, tears and other associated conditions.

Diagnostic Ultrasound - Ultrasonography can confirm diagnosis and show tissue tears or thickened tendons. It is good for identifying bursitis and excessive fluid in bursa, and/or ruling out other causes of pain.


Do You Really have Hip Bursitis?

It is possible for you to suffer anyone of the below secondary condition and bursitis at the same time. This occurs when the bursa's outer lining, called a synovial membrane, becomes inflamed and irriated.

Pain, swelling and inflammation in your hip could mean that you have hip bursitis. It's also important to consider that there are other conditions that might cause pain in your hip as well. You hip is a complicated joint with 5 bones, 17 muscles, numerous tendons, ligaments and bursae connecting your leg bone (femur), pelvis and spine all together. With so many connections of tissue to the bone it's easy to see why any pain in the hip can be bursitis or some other injury in the same area. You may even have bursitis AND another hip condition at the same time.

The only way you can know for sure whether you have hip bursitis is if you get a proper diagnosis for the condition by your doctor. Some other hip injuries include:

  • Iliopsoas Tendonitis involves inflammation and irritation of your iliopsoas tendon and the area surrounding your tendon. Overuse and repetitive activities cause small micro-tears to the iliopsoas tendon tissue.

    Iliopsoas bursitis and iliopsoas tendinitis are similar and often occur at the same time as inflammation of the tendon often causes inflammation of the bursa and vice versa. Both of these conditions similar symptoms, and are less common that other groin strains.

  • Iliopsoas Syndrome refers to a stretch, tear or complete rupture of your iliopsoas muscle and tendon where the tendon attaches to your thigh bone, frequently experienced along with iliopsoas bursitis. It is rare for your iliopsoas muscle-tendon to rupture completely. The tendon is damaged and now rubbing on the bursa sac causing it to be come inflammed as well.
  • Crystal Deposits in the Joint - Rheumatoid arthritis or gout can cause iliopsis bursitis. Some people with diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout or scleroderma may contract bursitis from crystalline deposits in the joints. Although not much is known about how this process happens, it is common knowledge that uric acid is a normal byproduct of daily metabolism. If you have gout, you are unable to break down this uric acid properly, leading to crystalization of this excess acid which deposits in joints. This can cause joint pain that can often lead to bursitis.
  • Iliopsoas bursitis is often found in conjunction with iliopsoas tendinitis
  • Excessive Friction - Iliopsoas bursitis and iliopsoas tendonitis are often caused by excessive rubbing against a broad, shallow groove over which your iliacus and psoas major pass (the pubic iliopectineal eminence). The tendon may first become irritated and inflamed, leading to swelling and increase friction on the iliopsoas bursa underneath.
  • Leg length discrepancies may result in a skewed gait (abnormalities in the way you walk) which can cause more pressure on the iliopsoas bursa than usual. In addition, age and degenerating tissues often causes a decrease in your tendon flexibility can change the movement in your hip joint, leading to excess friction on the tendon and bursa.
  • Iliopsoas tendinitis and/or bursitis are common during growth spurts when you are younger because your biomechanics are altered around the hip area. The tendons and muscles area tight, the pelvis begins to tilt, and the rest of the lower body goes out of alignment. This can affect the lower back, hip joints, knees and your gait which can result in lower body joint issues.

  • Hip Tendonitis - is a condition where you experience pain, swelling and inflammation from damage or micro-tearing of one or more of the tendons in your hip. The tendons in your hip connect muscle to bone and when these tendons are injured they usually cause pain and tenderness at the front, side and back of your hip, and even into your buttocks as well. If you have hip tendonitis, you could be suffering from different kinds of tendonitis including iliotibial band (IT band) tendonitis, gluteus medius tendonitis, or hip flexor tendonitis (iliacus tendonitis or iliopsoas tendonitis).
  • Snapping hip syndrome
  • Snapping Hip Syndrome - Snapping hip syndrome is when you feel a snapping sensation or hear a popping sound in your hip when you walk, get up from a chair or swing you leg around. This feeling and/or sound is made by a tendon in your hip as it moves over a bony bump. Most of the time this is more annoying than painful. However long-term snapping/popping can lead to hip bursitis, a condition that is very painful.
  • Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome - (GTPS) causes chronic pain on the side of the hip. Symptoms of GTPS include constant pain in the side hip that travels along the whole side of the thigh to the knee and occasionally below the knee and/or buttock. If you have this condition you will probably feel very specific point tenderness on the side of the hip.
  • Hip Arthritis - Joint pain and can be described as a dull aching pain in the groin, outer thigh, or buttocks. You may feel more pain in the morning that could get worse as the day goes but generally lessens as you get more active. Doing anything vigorous can result in pain, stiffness and may limit your movements or make walking difficult. Arthritis means inflammation of a joint and there are a number of types of arthritis of the hip - including:
  • MendMeShop Customer Success Stories
    • Osteoarthritis - the inflammation happens as the smooth covering (articular cartilage) on the ends of bones wears away.
    • Rheumatoid Arthritis - an immune system disease that usually affects multiple joints on both sides of the body at the same time.
    • Ankylosing Spondylitis - a chronic inflammation of the spine and the point where the spine meets the pelvic bone (sacroiliac joint) that can also cause inflammation in other joints
    • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus - an autoimmune disease in which the body harms its own healthy cells and tissues
  • Labral Tear - The labrum is the cartilage that surrounds the hip joint. If you have a tear in your labrum you may feel a catching sensation and pain in the hip joint, groin, stiffness and limited range of motion of your hip. Any changes or abnormalities in the physical structure of the hip can lead to a tear in the labrum cartilage.
  • hip pain and Osteonecrosis
  • Osteonecrosis - A disease that affects blood flow to an area of bone. This lack of blood flow to the bone in the hip joint causes the cells to die and the bone may eventually collapse. Osteonecrosis is a condition that develops in stages, general hip pain is usually felt first that may progress to a dull ache or throbbing pain in the groin or buttock area. If you have this condition you may also have more pain and find it difficult to stand and put weight on you hip. Moving your hip joint will also be painful. These stages can last anywhere from several months to over a year. Early diagnosis of this disease provides a much better outcome with consistent, proper treatment.
  • Fractured Hip - De-generative hip fractures are most common in elderly patients with osteoporosis. Treatment of broken hips requires surgery to either replace the broken portion or repair it with a metal plate and screws. Stress fractures of the hip are most common in athletes who participate in high-impact sports, such as long distance runners. Treatment is usually successful by avoiding the impact activities.

Women are more likely to have iliopsoas bursae injuries

Of all sports injuries that occur, hip and pelvic injuries account for 2-5% with happen where the muscle and tendon joint (musculotendinous injuries) being the most common. The 2 most common hip injuries are iliopsoas tendinitis and iliopsoas bursitis. Most of the injuries occur at the top of your femur (around the lesser trochanter and tendon of the iliopsoas). Iliopsoas injuries are poorly recognized as a cause of hip and groin pain.

Conditions and symptoms related to iliopsoas bursitis are snapping hip syndrome, trochanteric bursitis, torn hip labrum, neuromyofascial tightness, iliopsoas tendinopathy, lumbar spine abnormalities, iliopsoas syndrome, iliopsoas tendinitis, inflammation of the tendon, anterior hip pain, groin pain, rheumatoid arthritis, hip fractures, hip overuse syndrome, lumbosacral injuries, osteitis pubis or a groin injury.


 


How Do You Treat Hip Bursitis?
What You Can Do!

The good news is that most cases of hip bursitis will heal with simple home conservative treatments and surgery is often not needed!

First you need to stop the activity that is causing your pain and rest your hip. Focus on treating the symptoms of your bursitis and any other soft tissue injuries you may have in your hip. Make sure to completely reduce inflammation, tenderness and swelling-induced pain first before switching to a goal of healing your bursitis injury.

With bursitis injuries, you might feel the swollen and tender feeling for a long time and it will be hard to treat your condition because your bursa will be sensative to all other therapies outside of cold compression. When introducing other therapies make sure to first treat with cold compression to reduce any lingering affects of the inflammation and then an hour or so later give your bursa a soothing BFST® treatment to heal your bursa and the surrounding tissue.

When it comes to temperature therapy what's better to treat your hip bursitis - heat or cold?

Cold Compression Therapy with a Back/Hip Freezie Wrap®

RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) has been recommended for years by doctors, trainers, and other medical professionals to treat the pain and swelling, chronic pain from injury and after any re-injury. Bursitis injuries need rest and time for the tissue to heal.

When should you use hot or cold for injuries?

Although RICE can help to treat these symptoms, ice and freezer 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, so ice and blue gel packs (full of anti-freeze and chemicals) have been the only choice up until now.

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, numb your skin and underlying tissue beyond feeling so you don't even notice the ice burn until it's too late and pool around your injury putting the cold everywhere except for where you need it most.

A Back/Hip Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat your hip in an effective and convenient way. Our Freezie Wraps® will wrap around your hip keeping the cold right over your bursitis injury for the entire length of your treatment. Our food-grade, non-toxic gel 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! The cushioned gel will wrap around your hip and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling around your hip or have to hold a hard block of ice on your injury!

Tailor your treatment to your own level of comfort - use a Back/Hip Freezie Wrap® out of the fridge OR freezer. It's important to treat yourself with whatever your body is comfortable with. So if that means you can't handle a lot of cold, then use your cold packs for 10 minutes out of the fridge instead. You'll stil get all the benefits of cold compression therapy but with a treatment that's tailored for your needs. It's as simple as that.

When should you use hot or cold for injuries?

Cold Compression Therapy with a Freezie Wrap® works by stopping and slowing nerve and cell function in the area and reducing swelling that can block blood vessels.

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 bursa, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal bursitis injuries faster and with less pain! This is why you need to treat your hip bursitis pain right after it's hurt, when you notice pain / swelling / inflammation, or directly after a re-injury. Applying a Back/Hip 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.

BFST® with a Back/Hip Inferno Wrap®

After the inflammation in your bursa has been reduced, providing extra blood flow and helping to heal your damaged bursa is recommended for complete healing.

healing your bursitis injury

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

The only way to get BFST® is through use of a Back/Hip Inferno Wrap®. The Back/Hip 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 bursae 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 damaged bursa by increasing the blood flow right in your soft tissue. Over time with consistent treatments you'll even notice that the warmth you feel from BFST® will decrease. This is a sign that you've successfully increased blood flow right at the source of your pain and your body is doing everything it can to speed up the healing process.

The Back/Hip Inferno Wrap® is the only product available anywhere that offers BFST® AND a thin, flexible Energy Web® (heating element) that conforms around your hip.

This Energy Web® also provides consistent, uniform heat all around your hip to increase blood flow in the entire joint.

When should you use hot or cold for injuries?

Our Back/Hip Inferno Wrap® is 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 for heating treatment. Our manufacturer has spent years perfecting the wrap design to make sure you get the treatment you deserve!

Bursitis Inflammation Facts:

Bursitis is the inflammation or irritation of the bursa.


Bursitis is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the area, or from a sudden, more serious injury.


Bursitis high-risk activities include gardening, raking, carpentry, shoveling, painting, scrubbing, tennis, golf, skiing, throwing, and pitching.


If bursitis persists and is left untreated, calcium deposits can form within the bursae. These calcium deposits limit range of motion and can lead to a permanently stiff joint.


Incorrect posture at work or home and poor stretching or conditioning before exercise can also lead to bursitis.

Dear MendMeShop,

A couple of years ago I helped my husband cut firewood on a hillside. I began to experience pain in my Achilles tendon shortly after we had finished getting all of the firewood cut, split and stacked. I limped through the winter and in the spring began to worry that I wouldn't be able to take care of my gardens. I finally went to the doctor and was prescribed physical therapy. The PT did help with the pain but didn't really "cure" the problem. I continued home physical therapy for another year and began to research therapies to help the tendon. I wanted to avoid surgery if possible. I came across the MendMeShop website and read about the products recommended for Achilles tendon. The cost seemed minimal compared to what I had already spent at the doctor and physical therapist. I ordered the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap for the ankle and used them according to the directions. I felt great pain relief and the flexibility in my Achilles returned within a few weeks of treatments. I have also been using a night splint following my last Inferno Wrap night treatment before retiring. With that regimen, I have been able to avoid a surgical tendon correction and have been able to resume my normal busy activities. Thank you MendMeShop for your great products and customer service follow-up of the shipment of products.

Dear MendMeShop,

Dear Paul, Thank you so much for your Courtesy email. I have used the wraps, alternating the treatments as your information advised. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. For over a month, I could not get up out of my chair without assistance and I thought my knee was never going to heal. I have used them for 9 full days and I am able to get up by myself. I have never had any problem like this before and I have a new appreciation for the disabled. This treatment has been unbelievably successful for me and I have told everyone I know about this product. It has been like going from night to day....I am at least 85% better. Thank you again for these most wonderful products. I having been thanking my wonderful God and Savior of this universe for you people. I hope you have a wonderful day and may God bless you personally and prosper your company abundantly!! Rebecca

Dear MendMeShop,

It has been just over 2 months since I started using my knee Inferno Wrap for a MCL injury. I have used it as directed and have had great results. I am 80% healed with little pain as I write. I am planning to resume surfing this week after a 3 month layoff. I am 62. I definitely recommend Inferno Wrap as an alternative to surgery. Thanks again, Randy Best P.S. Yesterday I told someone about your great Inferno products who has a foot injury.

Dear MendMeShop,

I am writing to tell you how pleased I have been with not only your products but your commitment to the product and service aspects. You folks are attentive, knowledgeable and most definitely out for the good of the customer! Many years ago I told my own staff that "Because of the Customer We Exist." This means more in the 21st century when clients have choices - offering a top-notch product is expected, but offering a superior product with superior service means even more. I can't thank you enough for helping me through a knee injury! Kind regards,

Dear MendMeShop,

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 take 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!!!!!!

Dear MendMeShop,

I have nothing but good to say about the Inferno Wrap. I am continuing to use it daily. My shoulder is better than I imagined it could be in the amount of time I have been using it. Sometimes I go for days with no pain and when it does come back, it is no where near the intensity it was before the Inferno Wrap. Thank you so much for tracking my progress. A very happy customer, Louise Schiotis
