Dear MendMeShop,

I really never expected such good service! I have a trochanteric bursitis, and have been seriously bothered by it for more than a year. My rheumatologist gave me two steroid injections which helped briefly and then the pain started again, and that pain is almost crippling. Celebrex was recommended and it worked for me except that I have IBS and unfortunately couldn’t continue to take it. Besides it is a systematic drug and who knows what else it may effect. I was in pain and decided to check out the internet and that is where I found you. I was uncertain about the use of electromagnetic therapy, it sounded like it might be in the snake oil category, but fortunately for me I got good confirmation about the legitimacy of the product. I have to say I am so glad that I made the purchase. You are right I felt a difference with the first treatment using the inferno wrap. I have continued to use it about two times a day. I am very impressed with you product. I still have pain, more on same days than others, but it is greatly reduced and I am able to walk without severe pain. I also ordered the freeze wrap but haven’t used it yet. I expect a situation will arise when I may want to. I will recommend you and your product to anyone who may benefit. I am so glad I found you!

Diagnosing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome early is important to avoid permanent damage of the median nerve or the spreading of pain to the elbow and shoulder.

Early diagnosis and proper treatment is beneficial.

Your doctor can determine if you have carpal tunnel syndrome and rule out pain due to another underlying condition (i.e. diabetes, arthritis or fracture) with a physical examination and basic laboratory tests. The doctor will perform several exams that will test the range of motion, strength and painful areas of your wrists and hands.

The examination usually begins with checking the fingers, hands, wrists, arms, shoulders and neck for range of motion, tenderness, swelling, warmth and discoloration. The fingers are tested for sensation and the doctor may ask you to bend your wrists down to check the muscles at the base of the hand for atrophy and strength.

Often pain can be reproduced by pressing on the wrist and medial nerve, which would be a strong indication that the nerve is the source of pain. The median nerve does not connect to the little finger. Therefore, if you have feeling in that finger but the rest of your hand feels numb and painful it may be a sign of carpal tunnel syndrome. Range of motion and wrist flexion tests including pressing the palms together, and pressing the back of the hands together will test for alternate causes like trauma, prior injury and arthritis.

Electrodiagnostic Test

The nerve conduction test can be used to confirm a diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome. Small electric shocks are applied and the speed of nerve impulse transmissions is measured.

With electromyography, a needle is inserted into a muscle and the electrical activity is viewed on a screen. This activity is used to determine the amount of damage the median nerve has suffered.

Home Tests

Phalen's test being performed.

Phalen's Sign - Phalen's test is done by pushing the back of your hands together for one minute. This compresses the carpal tunnel and is also positive when it causes the same symptoms you have been experiencing with your carpal tunnel syndrome.

Tinel test being performed.

Tinel's Sign - Tinel's test is performed by tapping the median nerve along its course in the wrist.

A positive test is found when tapping the nerve causes tingling in the fingers

Ultrasound Imaging

An ultrasonic image can be used to show the extent of impaired movement on the median nerve.

Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

In order to relieve these symptoms of CTS, the goal is to stop the swelling or compression of the median nerve to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. In order to accomplish this, rest and immobilization is a must. To treat the swelling, pain, inflammation and compression quickly, you can effectively use ColdCure Technology® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy conveniently in your own home.

Dear MendMeShop,

I had suffered (really suffered!) with Achilles Tendonitis for almost two years, and spent much time and money going to orthopedists and finally a podiatrist. That last visit made me feel there was no hope, but I decided to go on the internet and I found the MendMeShop. I read about the Inferno Wrap, and decided to call and ask more. I figured that the cost of this would be a drop in the bucket to what I'd already spent in co-pays over the past couple of years. The person at the MendMeShop was knowledgable and very helpful. She advised me on a plan of use, and offered to be a continuing resource for me. Once I received the Inferno Wrap I followed the advice I'd been given. I used it on my elevated ankle/foot three times a day for 20 minutes each time. (First applying ice for 10 minutes when my ankle was particularly swollen.) Within 3 months of faithful use, I was able to walk without pain. What a relief! And now whenever I feel the slightest indication of discomfort, I use the Inferno Wrap for 20 minutes -- sometimes twice a day. I have recommended the MendMeShop to friends without hesitation. I feel so appreciative that I found the website on the internet. I also told my primary physician about it so that he could tell other patients to try this wonderful resource. Today I'm writing from Georgia where I am visiting friends and family. Guess what I packed to come with me?! Right! My Inferno Wrap! You all met and exceeded - not just my expectations, which were pretty modest, but my hopes at a time when I felt almost desperate! My best wishes, Chris Kelsey
