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.

Forearm Pain

contact sport can cause forearm pain.

Pain often occurs between the wrist and the elbow. The pain resulting from a forearm injury is exerienced as tenderness, ache, tightness and often an inability to perform repetitive tasks. Most commonly, forearm pain results from repetitive sress such as tennis, golf and typing.

These symptoms can occur from:

  • Pulled and/or strained muscles
  • Muscle ruptures or small tears
  • Acute injury may occur from a direct blow, fall, or any extreme twisting, bending, or jamming action.
  • Tendonitis, such as tennis elbow or golfers elbow. Tennis elbow is a painful condition caused by inflammation or small tears of the forearm muscles and tendons on the outside or inside of the elbow. Tennis elbow is caused by overloading the forearm muscles through repetitive stress and poor technique.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, another repetitive stress disorder, affecting the nerves and tendons of the wrist and forearm.
Success Stories

RCCE is the best treatment for forearm muscle pain. The RCCE method decreases pain and inflammation, thereby enabling a full and speedy recovery.

Rest and limit your activity. Use a brace, splint or cast.

Treat your forearm with Cold 2-3 times/day for approximately 10 minutes at a time to help reduce blood flow and fluid build up. Gel packs are a better option than frozen peas if possible, as they mold to your body shape and are reusable.

cold compression forearm wrap.

Compress the area if possible by adding light pressure to minimize swelling (make sure the compress is snug, but not too tight as it could cause numbness, tingling or more pain).

Elevate your arm above chest level to relieve the pressure from swelling and allow fluid to drain from your injured area. Gentle massage around area will also help to prevent stiffness.

Dear MendMeShop,

MendMe products are the Cadillac of at-home treatment options. They are robustly constructed to provide superior heat or cold contact to the injured area and the fit is incredibly precise and adaptable. My husband and I use them repeatedly as typical ageing athletes with lots of old injuries. I have loaned them to friends on my paddle tennis team and everyone raves. Yes, they cost a bit more but save untold thousands in visits to chiropractors, physical therapists and doctors. We are among the sites biggest fans.
