Dear MendMeShop,

My back is feeling better. Regular heating pads don't seem to work as well as the Inferno - I would assume due to their lack of penetration. The Inferno Wrap is of good benefit at this point. Thanks for a great product.

Dear MendMeShop,

I can tell you I have already seen the difference and good effect, and i only used them (Back/Hip Inferno and Leg/Arm Inferno Wraps) for one week. Big test was Saturday when I went to cut my grass and after had no pain in my leg. I am glad I found you on the internet and it made sense to me to try it.

Anatomy of the Wrist

Anatomy of the wrist and carpal tunnel.

The wrist or radiocarpal joint, lies between the radius and ulna in the forearm and the 8 carpus bones in the hand; the scaphoid, lunate, pisiform, trapezium, capitate, triquetrum, trapezoid, and the hamate.

The wrist joint itself includes the carpal tunnel, the flexor retinaculum, and the extensor retinaculum. These bones 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.

The carpal tunnel is a canal that runs inside the inner part of the wrist. It's surrounded by a series or small wrist bones on three sides and by a rigid ligament, called the flexor retinaculum or transverse carpal ligament, that links the bones together creating the tunnel.

The median nerve runs through the carpal tunnel along with 9 flexor tendons that attach the forearm bones to the palm of the hand.

The extensor retinaculum, also referred to as the posterior annular ligament or dorsal carpal ligament, is a large ligament band that runs across the back of the wrist. It attaches to the radius on the lateral, or outer side of the wrist, and to the most medial (inner) carpal bones in the wrist; the triquetrum and pisiform.

Bursae in the wrist, radial bursa and ulnar bursa.

The bursae of the hand are found at the distinct synovial sheaths and the two main bursae are the ulnar bursa and the radial bursa. The ulnar bursa covers the tendons of the index, middle and ring fingers. The radial bursa covers the thumb tendon and extends to the wrist crease. Infection in the radial bursa and ulna bursa is known as a "horseshoe abscess".

The extensive use of the wrist puts it at a considerable risk for injury; athletes are at an even higher risk - 9% of all athletic injuries involve the wrist.

Common Wrist Injuries and Conditions

The wrist is vunerable to wrist injury during a fall and other conditions due to over use of the wrist joint. Some of the more common wrist injuries and conditions include:

Dear MendMeShop,

I love the products and I can definitely tell they are making a big difference in my healing. I just wish I had known of your products even sooner. I was in a serious motorcycle accident back in July and broke 17 bones, had a collapsed lung, and had numerous twists and sprains along with a lot of swelling. I was in the intensive care unit for 7 days and then in the hospital for 7 more before I was able to go home. To make a long story short, since using your products my pain level has gone down immensely and the swelling is finally under control. I even take the Inferno wrist and back wrap to work and use it since I have a desk job that makes it possible. I am down to just walking with a cane now and will probably be able to get rid of that in about two weeks. I did twenty minutes on the stationary bike yesterday and walked for 1/2 mile on our treadmill. Within another couple months I hope to be back to jogging several miles every other day. The 4 Inferno Wraps and 2 Cold Cure products along with lots of prayers on my behalf have helped make the difference. Thanks again so much, and God Bless you guys for your products! Steve Brown P.S. Also, here is a little more about my status now. I just ran the Peachtree Road Race (a 10K event – 6.2 miles) in 9:07 per mile. That was back on July 4. I just ran a 5K (3.1 miles) in 8:22 per mile this last weekend. I truly believe the wraps helped me get that level of fitness back. Many people my age (55) don't even ever get in that kind of shape, let alone a year after a major accident with all the complications that I had. I still use the Freezie Wraps after running when I can and I still regularly use the Inferno Wraps before many of my runs and exercise to warm things up.
