Dear MendMeShop,

I love the freezie wraps, and use them for hip pain. They work well at night to take away most of the bursitis like pain. The Mend Me shop has provided excellent advice and treatment protocol which has been invaluable.

Dear MendMeShop,

So far, so good! I've used the shoulder treatment 4x a day for a week now and seen a marked improvement in my shoulder with both flex ability and pain relief. P.S. As a follow up one week after the initial comments... Indeed, after a couple weeks of use, the pain totally subsided. Thanks!!!

Back Sprains

Sprains can happen a anytime.

Back sprains are often the beginning of a long battle with back pain. Sprains are limited to the ligaments that link the spinal bones together, followed by tendons which connect muscles to bones and dics. Symptoms such as diffuse muscle aches, fatigue, back or neck pain, sleep disturbance, and muscle tender points often follow back sprains. It's important to see your healthcare provider for a diagnosis if what you thought was a minor muscle sprain continues for more than a couple of weeks.

The diagnosis of stress-related back pain or sprain is based on a complete history and physical by a healthcare provider. It's important to rule out maladies such as kidney disease, spinal tumors, or infection that can manifest themselves much like a back sprain. If you're indeed diagnosed with back sprain, your treatment will most likely be overseen by some type of therapist or a chiropractor.

Back Muscle Treatments

If you have a muscle pull or strain in your back, resting it is recommended. Avoid activities that cause pain or may have caused the injury and begin cold compression treatments as soon as possible.

There are healing tools that can help treat your back muscle strain and speed up the healing process so you can reduce your pain and get back to daily life. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) will promote blood flow to heal your injury faster and more completely than any other methods available.

Freezie Wrap® Cold Compression Therapy

To decrease inflammation of your muscle pull when the strain first occurs doctor's recommend cold compression therapy. For an acute strain, cold compression therapy within the first 48 - 72 hours and after any restrain is important to limit the amount of damage done to your tissue. Cold compression therapy will relieve pain and swelling as needed and will reduce, or even eliminate, the need for NSAIDs and pain medications.

The Back/Hip Freezie Wrap treats pain, swelling and inflammation caused by muscle and tendon strain while reducing tissue damage.

The Back/Hip Freezie Wrap® is the cold compression tool you need to treat your back pain in an effective and convenient way. It is so versatile it can be worn anywhere over your chest, back, or hip for treatment where you need it.

Cold Compression Therapy works by interrupting and slowing nerve and cell function in the injured 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 your muscle and tissue cells begin to break-down. Without cold compression therapy cellular break-down and tissue damage continues as the cells do not get the oxygen they need to survive. By limiting the amount of damage done to your tissue, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal your muscle strain faster and with less pain!

The deep cooling effect provided by the Freezie Wrap® slows cell metabolism thereby reducing cellular break-down and tissue damage. Furthermore, because the cold wraps gently numb the nerves, the wraps also reduce pain!

The Freezie Wrap® uses a supercharged cooling gel pack, that chills in the fridge, not in the freezer like ice or other freezer packs, giving you deep cold therapy without the risk of 'cold burns' or cryoburn.

MendMeShop Success Stories

Once the inflammation of your back injury has been reduced, nourishing and strengthening the muscle tissue and surrounding area is recommended. Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy will speed your recovery and heal your muscle fibers more completely preparing them for strengthening exercises. Talk to your doctor or physical therapist to find out which exercises are appropriate for your situation.

Inferno Wrap® Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

After severe inflammation and swelling is reduced you can begin to treat your back with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®). BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your muscle fibers to nourish your soft tissue which speeds healing.

The Inferno Wrap speeds the healing of back tendon strain, muscle pulls, and tears.

When you rest your back and stop moving around because it hurts, the natural blood flow to your muscles is reduced, limiting your body's ability to heal itself.

By treating your back muscles with BFST® you can increase your body's blood supply to the muscle fibers and increase your body's natural healing power.

The Inferno Wrap® is the tool you need to treat your sore back because not only does it speeds healing, it relaxes all your back muscles. With BFST®, tissues are safely and gently stimulated. Your body responds with a rapid increase in blood flow to the area, increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients to injured tissue cells to promote healing and loosen the tissue. Our Back/Hip Inferno Wrap® provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects.

In addition, the improved blood flow whisks away dead cells and toxins that have built up from your muscle strain, further reducing tightness and pain. When you stop moving your back due to pain, your muscles and other tissue can become weaker and dead cells and toxins in the area can cause further tissue deterioration - this can lead to atrophy (muscle weakness and/or deterioration). By clearing the area of toxins and increasing the amount of oxygen and nutrients to your muscle and other tissue, the risk of atrophy is greatly reduced. Keeping your muscle tissue as healthy as possible throughout the healing process will allow you to improve muscle strength again once your pain has gone and your strain has healed.

With these easy-to-use home therapies, cold compression and BFST®, you will notice significantly reduced pain and an incredible improvement in your back pain.

During your recovery, you may have to modify and/or eliminate any activities that cause pain or discomfort in your back until your pain and inflammation settle. The more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results!

Dear MendMeShop,

Hello, I'm reporting into you that the shoulder wrap is working so good. Most of my pain is gone now. I have good movement of the arm. Can raise it up over head now and around to the back. Before I started the treatments I was not able to do these things. I am a believer of your product and I will continue to use it. I went to my Doctor today for my yearly physical and I told her about me ordering this wrap, as I did not want to go through another surgery on the rotator-cuff. I just got done doing my overhead pulley exercises on my arms and then I put on the wrap and it felt so good. I still am being very careful as to not over use the arm. I was able to run my vacuum today with the right arm and did great. Ok, just thought you would like to hear my progress and I am very happy with the results so far
