Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the Inferno & Freezie Wraps since November,2012. I saw an orthopedic doctor after Thanksgiving and have been going to occupational therapy (3) days per week. I was told by my ortho doctor to continue to use the items that I had purchased from you (I brought them in on my initial visit with him). I am currently using the inferno wrap as soon as I wake up in the morning, then continue to do my daily wrist and arm exercises. I use the freezie wrap when I am finished. While working I use a tennis elbow brace and I am also using it while doing housework or other chores where I am using my arm alot. My arm is improving slowly as I am working (4) days a week as a chef for 12-14 hours per day. My ortho doctor told me that it would take some time to heal completely. I don't see him until the end of February (3 months since initial visit). So far I am seeing improvement in both pain management and flexibility. I believe the combination of therapy sessions and the use of your wrap treatments are the key to a successful treatment plan. I'll keep you informed of my progress. Thanks again for your help and guidance.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been doing very good with your (Back and Ankle) products. Have not had to use the cold much anymore, just the inferno wrap and I can tell I am starting to improve with the device. I did talk with someone a few weeks ago and she gave some usage recommendations. So all in all, your products and personal attention are great.

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:
