Dear MendMeShop,

I have to admit, I fully expected to be returning my order. (inferno wrap, freezie wrap) I told my wife "this is a lot of money and if doesn't work I'm sending it back", "I've got 60 days". Well after about 9 days of (2) treatments per day my severe case of Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow) is almost pain free. I tried wearing the over the counter tendon support brace with absolutely no results. My elbow pain was so bad I couldn't sleep at night and just knew I was going to have to see a doctor. Then I found your website. I was very impressed with the quality of your wraps, very thick and made form high quality materials. I guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" speaks volumes here. I'm completely sold on your products and won't be returning anything!!! Thank you for helping heal my tennis elbow and I've already told many of my friends about your web site. 100% satisfied Cameron Caldwell from Meriden, KS.

Dear MendMeShop,

I recently purchased the Inferno Wrap from mendmeshop and have been using it every day for several weeks now. I started seeing positive results the second or third time I used it. I'm not sure what caused the sudden discomfort in my shoulder, but when I first experienced it, I went on line and googled "Torn Rotator Cuff" After reading about the shoulder joint, I saw the information from the mendmeshop. Several years ago I purchased a similar device from your company for a knee injury.. I had very good results with the heat treatment, so when I saw the Inferno Wrap, I knew from past experience that it was probably going to work. The shoulder discomfort has gone, but I still continue to use the Inferno Wrap every day. Hats off to the Mendmeshop for providing such instant and positive relief.

Dear MendMeShop,

I spent 7 years in the gym walking one hour and working out. I lost 85 pounds in about 2 years with a lot of hard work and dedication. After I left the gym in 2008 due to it closing I started having problems about a year later. I recently had surgery on my left shoulder on Jan 4th of this year to shave down the bone to leave enough space for my shoulder joint to work. It seemed to be healing slowly, until I probably reinjured it trying to cut down a small tree. I went back to my Orthopedic Surgeon for my follow up and had to have a cortizone shot in June so I could be painfree while on a long awaited vacation. The shot lasted until September and had another shot October 26 with a warning from the Dr that if I couldn't get any better through therapy by Jan 6 2011 I would have to have the full surgery with my tendons and muscles sewn up to the top of my Rotator Cuff. I told him I don't want to go through the pain again, since I can't take pain medication due to my daily med I have to take for PTSD and can't take them both at the same time. So I did some research for the last 2 months and kept coming up with the MendMeShop Left Shoulder Inferno Wrap. I printed all the material and showed it to my OS and he said to try it if I think it will help me. I received it in 2 days last Friday and was out of town overnight.So I didn't get to try it until Saturday night. I tried it wrapped over a sweater with a thermal shirt underneath and the heat went right through and felt like I was at the physical therapist. The next day I did a few 60 minute sessions and I could feel my muscles ache a little bit, but NO PAIN praise God !!! I was buying a large tube of Extra Strength Muscle Rub with 16 % Menthol once a week to bear the pain along with 800 ML of Ibuprofen.Today is Thursday and I haven't had to put any rub on my shoulder since coming home Saturday night. This Inferno Wrap is incredible and is worth every penny. I am on Disability so I can't afford to waste a penny, but this purchase is becoming a lifesaver for me. Sometimes I just unplug from the charger, tuck the little 8 inch connector, then I tighten the wrap to make it a compression support and the heat stays in it for hours and allows me to be able to function a lot less painful since I am left handed also. If I could give it a 10 star rating instead of a 5 star I would. I will keep you all up to date a few times a week as I progress, along with any replies I might receive. Sun Nov 14, 2010 2:51 pm

Wrist Sprain

A sprained wrist is a common and painful injury and, at the very least, can be an annoyance given the frequency we rely on our wrists for daily work, chores, and activities.

A fall on an outstetched hand is a common cause of wrist sprain.

A wrist sprain often occurs during a fall on an outstretched hand, when the force of the twist or direct blow causes the wrist ligaments to stretch abnormally. If the wrist ligaments stretch or tear they become inflamed and pain and swelling sets in. A fall may happen in during sports, in icy weather, or simply if balance is lost while walking.

The wrist is made up of 8 small bones, referred to as carpal bones. These bones lie between the radius and ulna in the forearm and the metacarpal bones in the palm of the hand and are arranged in 2 rows. The 4 bones next to the forearm are called the proximal row and the 4 bones that run along the hand are called the distal row. These wrist bones are held together by ligaments which are tough connective bands of tissue that attach the bones in the wrists together. Along with the bones, they stabilize the wrist and hand, balancing the joint and allowing movement in various directions.

Grades of Ligament Sprains

The ligaments in the wrist can be sprained to varying degrees depending on the force that caused the sprain and the strength of the ligaments and wrist bones. There are 3 difference grades of sprains and the grade is determined by the severity of the tissue damage.

Grade 1 - Mild Sprain

A grade 1 sprain is the least serious of ligament sprains. Stretching or some minor tearing of the wrist ligaments occurs but the wrist remain reasonably stable. These injuries usually heal well if treated quickly with rest (a brace can help limit movement) and cold compression therapy. Once the stretching and minor tears have healed, it is important to improve the health of the ligaments and tendons, restore the elasticity, and strengthen the wrist joint with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) to reduce the risk of re-injuring it again.

Grade 2 - Moderate Sprain

A grade 2 sprain occurs when a ligament is partially torn but still intact. If you have a grade 2 sprain, strength in the wrist is reduced. This grade of sprain can also be effectively treated with cold compression and BFST®. It is recommended that you allow your wrist to rest and possibly wear a brace to immobilize the joint and allow it to heal.

Grade 3 - Severe Sprain

When a wrist ligament is completely torn it is considered a grade 3 sprain or tear. The stability of the wrist joing is greatly reduced and pain is evident. Treatment of a complete ligament tear requires surgery to reattach the ligament to the wrist bone or back together at the point of the tear on the ligament. Cold compression and BFST® can be used prior to surgery to minimize tissue damage, resulting in a less invasive surgery.

Customer Reviews

In addition, using these therapies following surgery will help to repair and strengthen any damaged ligaments or tendons more completely. With these therapies you will have less scar tissue formation ini the wrist allowing for more flexibility and less pain than if it was left to heal on its own.

Symptoms

If you have suffered a wrist sprain you may be experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Pain when you move your wrist, and possibly when at rest
  • Burning and tenderness in the joint
  • Instability and loss of strength in the wrist
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Snapping or clicking in the joint may eventually occur if the ligaments do not heal properly, causing the bones to slide incorrectly as the wrist moves

Wrist Sprain Treatments

It is very important to heal a wrist sprain properly to decrease the chance of re-injury and chronic problems in the future. A sprain that is left untreated or does not heal properly can cause more pain in the wrist, leave it weak and more prone to injury, and may lead to conditions such as osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition in the wrist bone joints, where the articular cartilage that covers the bones becomes damaged and inflamed. Anytime a wrist injury, like a sprain, disrupts the normal motion of the joints the joint mechanics do not operate properly. This puts stress on the articular carliage on the ends of the bones, causing damage that continues over time if the mechanics are not corrected. Osteoarthritis evertually causes pain and stiffness in the wrist and hand.

Fortunately, with the help of ColdCure Technology® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy you can heal your wrist sprain damage fasterwith less scar tissue and greater ligament fiber alignment, leaving your wrist stronger and pain free.

Freezie Wrap® Cold Compression Therapy
The Wrist Freezie Wrap treats pain, swelling and inflammation caused by tendinitis and tenosynovitis while reducing tissue damage.

Doctors recommend using cold compression as soon as possible following a wrist injury or re-injury to reduce pain and swelling and minimize tissue damage.

The Wrist Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat your joint in an effective and convenient way. The wrap is versatile with Velcro attachments so you can wrap it around your hand, wrist or forearm where you need it. It's adjustable which allows you to control the compression to your comfort level.

Designed with ColdCure Technology®, the gel packs are chilled in the fridge not the freezer. This eliminates the risk of cryoburn, or 'cold burns', on your skin that can be cause by ice and strandard freezer gel packs. You can also wear the Freezie Wrap® for longer treatments so you can enjoy even more relief from your wrist, hand, or thumb pain!

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 to the tendons, ligaments or muscles 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 tendon, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal your wrist faster and with less pain!

The deep cooling effect provided by the Wrist Freezie Wrap® gives you the fast, effective relief your sore wrist has been looking for!

Inferno Wrap® Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy
The Wrist Inferno Wrap speeds the healing of tendon tissue and the surrounding area.

After the inflammation and swelling is gone you can begin to treat your wrist with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®). BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your wrist to nourish your tendons and ligaments to speed healing.

Connective tissue receives a limited blood supply by nature and this significantly reduces the ability to heal.

By treating your tendons and ligaments with BFST® you can increase your body's blood supply to the wrist and increase your body's natural healing power. In addition, the fresh blood flow whisks away dead cells and toxins that have built up from the injury leaving the area clean and able to heal faster. Our Wrist Inferno Wrap® provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects.

Dear MendMeShop,

I am a very active individual. If I am not running or lifting weights you can usually find me doing various outdoor and home improvement projects. That is why when I recently started experiencing pain in my shoulder, upper arm and forearm I concluded that I had aggravated an old rotator cuff injury. Initially I ignored the discomfort, thinking that that would make it magically disappear but, to my disappointment the pain only continued to get worse. After a couple of months of I pain, I decided to do something for myself. I tried stretching exercises, massage, the heating pad and ibprofen but nothing seemed to be helping. That's when I went online and found the Mend Me Shop and the inferno wrap for the shoulder seemed like a good way to wrap the heat around the immediate area that needed treating. When I picked up the package from the post office I was anxious to get started. I was so pleased that after only three days of using the products, I was feeling relief. It's only been a little over a week since I started treatments and I can say that I can once again imagine living without the that constant pain. Thanks so much for the relief !!!

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm doing well with my Inferno Wraps. I have one for my foot, leg, back, and elbow. My elbow IS gradually getting better. The foot/ankle/Achilles, leg, and back/hip are helping a lot. I have a complex soft tissue injury from a fall where my foot was asleep and I did not know it ... UNTIL I fell on the floor, having twisted (running on my foot that turned over) my ankle, knee, and hip. I have healed well from the original injury (now 4 years ago) with lots of chiropractic and massage therapy and lots of rehab. One of my rehabs now is "Ballroom Dancing" with a teacher who understands injuries. I call it "Physio-dance therapy for rehabilitation." I've done this for the last 8 months and have gotten incredibly stronger and improved coordination and balance. But, 3 weeks ago I "strained" my Achilles/calf/ankle/foot muscles and tendons. I purchased the Inferno Wraps to help expedite my healing, which they HAVE DONE and I've only used them 2 weeks now. I am using them 2 times per day, every day.
