Dear MendMeShop,

At the end of the 2009 school year, (I'm a teacher) I developed plantar fasciitis in my right foot. I remember literally being in agony the last day of school and calling my orthopedic surgeon for an emergency appointment. He saw me, prescribed ice, supportive shoes, and offered to give me a shot of corticosteroid. He informed me that the shot might help but it also might make it worse! Needless to say, with that comment, I passed on the shot. I was really having a hard time with the pain. I began to search on the internet to find out all I could about plantar facsciitis and possible regimens to follow to aleviate my problem.. One site led to another and I finally found MendMeShop. MendMeShop offered a foot wrap that sounded like the perfect way to ice my foot. The plantar Freezie gel pack didn't freeze solid and the wrap molded perfectly to my foot. It certainly beat a tub full of hard ice! The condition is now gone from my right foot. I routinely exercise fairly vigorously including jogging on the treadmill. I would never have been able to do that last summer!

Dear MendMeShop,

I wanted to get back to you with feedback about the Inferno Wrap. So far we are very pleased with the size, light weight, flexibility and comfort of the wrap. It is very convenient the way the cord is set up. If one has to leave the area for a moment it is much easier now because instead of removing the entire wrap or unplugging the whole thing from the wall, you can just detach at the segment. I like the on/off switch, too. It is much easier to see which setting it is on. Everything about this new product seems more intelligent and user friendly. A lot of thought was put into improving on the old product. Well done to all involved!!!

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,

I am a retired Orthopedic Surgical Registered Nurse First Asst and I just want to say this Shoulder Inferno Wrap is wonderful. I have had adhesive capsulitis in my left shoulder several times. I am 67yo now and I have Arthritis, Lupus and fibromyalgia and I had bilat knee replacements in 2001. It has always taken about 6months to get back use of my arm and to get relief from pain. I read your information and was expecting it to take at least 6weeks to see an improvement. I have used it this short time since receiving it and I am almost painfree. Occasionally I start to feel a little ache and I put it back on before it becomes pain I have full range of motion when I could not brush my hair or fasten my bra. Again, I am so pleased and hope it helps others too. Jane P.S. I would like to encourage others to try the products and see if they get the same remarkable results as I did. I continue to improve with full ROM remaining and only occasional episodes of pain; As soon as I feel any pain, I use it 2-3 days in a row and the pain is gone. This is probably Arthritis as it feels different.

Dear MendMeShop,

What I can report is that the treatments make a difference. I have a bone spur. My routine is to start at 6:00 am because in the morning is when it hurts the most. I have discovered a way to wrap my foot with both the planter ligament wrap and the Achilles tendon wrap at the same time. I do the cold for 20 minutes, let it rest for 20 minutes, then do the hot for 20 minutes. While the pain does not go away, it does go from excruciating to tolerable. Each day I'm able to do a little more in the way of household chores I am even starting to go swimming again. I look out at the garden and dream of the day I can get back to work there. I told my podiatrist about your product and he said that is exactly what he wants me to do, cold then hot, plenty of water. He asked for information about your products, so I am taking it with me at my next visit. So, yes, all in all, I am happy with your product. But mostly I am pleased with your company. Like this letter for example, I am sure that you have hundreds of customers, but you make me feel like I'm the only one, or the most important. I feel like you care that I am experiencing pain and you want your product to help me. I wish you much success with your business. Yours Truly, Peggy *Update* Peggy emailed us 3 weeks after her first comments with a promising update: My bone spur has improved to the point that I use the treatments only once a day in the morning, with an occasional treatment in the evening after dinner. And there are days when there is no pain at all throughout the day!!

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 Trochanteric Bursitis?

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

 

You might be suffering from Trochanteric hip bursitis if:

  • You have sharp pain right at the hip bone that may extend down the outside of your thigh.
  • You have pain that is worse at night when you lye down.
  • You have pain with walking or even a pain to cause you to limp.
Trochanteric bursa in the hip

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 "Trochanteric 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).
 


What causes Trochanteric Hip Bursitis?

Running and other activities that require frequent flexion of the hip can overstress the trochanteric bursa. As well, the iliotibial band that runs overtop of the bursa may become tight for a variety of reasons putting extra pressure on the bursa during upper leg movements. Some activities and conditions that can contribute to trochanteric bursa include:

A fall on the hip can can damage to the bursa causing it to become inflamed.
  • Frequent running, or participation in sports that involve a lot of running
  • Activities which require repeated hip flexion (i.e. ballet, hurdling, soccer)
  • Bone spurs or calcium crystals that form inside the bursa can cause irritation
  • Repetitive stress on the hip from running, jumping, or squatting
  • An injury or blow to the hip or a fall on the hip
  • Uneven leg length that causes excess pressure on the bursa
  • Iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS)
  • Weak hip abductor muscles (gluteus medius, gluteus minimus and tensor fascia lata)

As well as the common causes of bursitis, trochanteric bursitis can occur following surgery. Patients who have undergone surgery for a hip replacement or fractured hip often complain about pain over the outside of the hip which is usually caused by irritation of the bursa. Trochanteric bursitis is also known to occur as a complication of arthroscopic surgery, although it is estimated to have a low occurance rate (1.4% of all trochanteric bursitis cases).


What are the symptoms of Trochanteric Hip Bursitis?

Trochanteric bursitis pain pattern.

A healthy greater trochanteric bursa is usually about the size of a small plum, but can swell to the size of an orange when bursitis sets in. Other symptoms you may experience include:

  • Pain around the bursa that may extend down the groin and thigh
  • Swelling and tenderness in the area of the bursa
  • Pain my increase when the hip is flexed
  • Difficulty sleeping due to pain
  • Limping
  • The area around the bursa is hot to the touch
  • Stiffness and tightness in the hip joint, groin and possibly the knee due to a tight muscle (iliopsoas) or tendon (IT band)

In North America, it is estimated that over 60% of hip pain cases are caused by trochanteric bursitis.

A "bursa" is a sac that contains fluid and allows soft tissues (tendons) to glide more easily over bones.
The greater trochanter bursa experienced bursitis more commonly than any other hip bursa.

The greater trochanteric bursa functions to prevent the iliotibial band (IT band) from rubbing against the hip bone (greater trochanter of the femoral head). The IT band runs from the pelvis (iliac crest) down the side of the hip and leg, and ends near the knee at the upper tibia.

Trochanteric bursitis is often caused by the iliotibial band (IT band) tightening and rubbing against the bursa.

When this bursa becomes inflamed, tenderness or pain will occur every time the tendon moves over the bone (greater trochanter). Pain may radiate from the hip down the outside of the thigh. As the tissue moves during each step, many sufferers of hip bursitis find it extremely painful to walk. In some cases, you may require the use of a wheelchair.



How Do I Diagnose Trochanteric Bursitis?

Diagnosing trochanteric bursitis can be difficult as many conditions (iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS), hip muscle strain, ligament sprains, etc.) have bursitis-like symptoms. Your doctor will need to perform a thorough assessment and possibly 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.

To begin with, your doctor will gather a medical history about you and your current condition and symptoms. You will discuss the intensity of your present pain, the duration of your symptoms, which movements are causing your pain, and the limitations you are experiencing. He/she will inquire about any recent activity or injury, when your pain started, and whether or not you have ever had treatments for this or a similar condition in the past.

A physical examination will be performed and your doctor will visually assess and palpate (feel) the bones and soft tissue around your sore hip and the opposite joint to evaluate symmetry and recognize differences. This will identify any abnormalities, such as mild or severe inflammation, bone deformities, atrophied muscles, redness and/or warmth on the skin.

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 will test any possible weaknesses, joint stability and location of tenderness.

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.

X-rays

illiopsoas x-ray

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.

MRI and CT Scans

illiopsoas mri

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 demonstrate tissue disruption or thickened tendons. It is good for identifying bursitis and excessive fluid in bursa, and/or eliminating other causes of pain.



Do You Really have Hip Bursitis?

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: hip tendonitis, snapping hip syndrome, greater trochanteric pain syndrome, hip arthritis, labral tear, osteonecrosis, or a fractured hip.

Hip Tendonitis pain

Hip Tendonitis

Hip tendonitis (tendinitis) 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 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

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

Hip Arthritis is 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.

Osteonecrosis

hip pain and Osteonecrosis

Osteonecrosis is 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.


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 shoulder and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling around your shoulder 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.

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.

When should you use hot or cold for injuries?

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.

Shop for Inferno Wraps at the AidMyBursa Online Store

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,

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.

Dear MendMeShop,

I ordered this wrap after finding out I have a Calcium deposit in my shoulder which has turned to Tendinitis. The Freezie wrap is awesome and instantly takes the pain away. The only thing negative I can say is if you are right at a 40 size chest order the SM/LG (under 40'). I am in the process of exchanging sizes because I ordered the LG/XL (40'-48') and the wrap is bulky and very big. I am right on the cute off for 40' and went bigger when I first ordered and should have ordered the small.

Dear MendMeShop,

Thank you!!! So far it's helping. My daughter is a pitcher and has been having treatment on her forearm. We are trying to get her well before the season begins at school. It is always a pleasure doing business with a company who genuinely cares about the quality of it's product, it's effectiveness and customer service. Please don't change a thing about how you do business there are not enough companies like yours in that respect! My family has owned small businesses through out the years and quality of work/product, customer service, satisfaction and respect were always our main concerns too! Angela
