Dear MendMeShop,

I also wanted to thank you so much for something you casually mentioned. In an email, you mentioned that I might want to look into a test to see if I had one leg shorter than the other because my knee pain was gone. Guess what- you were RIGHT! I went to an orthopaedic specialist who focuses on the foot and ankle. He was very casual and said I was healing fine. I insisted that he send me to someone who could make a brace of some sort. I can see that the same problem (posterior tibial tendonitis) was going to return if we did not get to the root of the problem. I insisted that he at least send me to a person. Fortunately, he sent me to a certified Orthodist. She found a slight discrepency in my right foot. (That's the one with the cast on it.) She is getting new orthodics for me- PLUS I asked about a brace that could keep my feet from over pronating. The Orthopaedic specialist said he could put me in an Arizona brace. I was molded for the brace yesterday. I truly appreciate your suggestion. No other doctor would have thought to check into it. I am now swimming and have no more pain in the right ankle. You have been a true blessing to me- in more ways than you will ever know. I know God had you pick up the phone when I called. Again- THANKS for your kindness and expert advice. Don't forget to send me a link so I can write a review. Now I am on my way to being healthy again.

Groin Anatomy

Hip Adductor muscles

The hip adductor muscles help to bring your legs together and rotate your hip inwards towards the midline of your body. The short adductors include the pectineus, adductor brevis, and adductor longus, and the long adductors include the adductor magnus and gracilis. All of these muscles are located on the inside of your thigh. At the end of these muscles are tendons, which are tough, fibrous tissues that connect your muscles to your bones. Most of these muscles and tendons attach your pubic bone (lower part of the pelvis) to your thigh bone (femur); however the gracilis muscle attaches to the lower leg bone (tibia) not the femur. These muscles and tendons start in the groin (crease at the junction of the inner part of the thigh where it meets the body near the external genital area) and move down through the inner thigh to the inside of the knee.

Hip Rotation

Your hip flexor muscles are among the most powerful muscles and tendons in your body. They are comprised of your iliopsoas (deep set muscles at the front of your hip), your tensor fasciae latae (outer hip muscle), and your rectus femoris and sartorius (they lie over top of the iliopsoas muscles in your front, upper thigh area). Hip flexors help you lift your upper leg to your torso or flex your torso towards your thigh (like when sitting up from a lying down position), they externally rotate your spine and thigh bone, and also limit your hip extension when walking or running.

Hip Movements

Although it is often regarded as a single muscle, the iliopsoas is comprised of 2 muscles: the psoas major and the iliacus (psoas minor weak flexor muscle) which lie deep beneath your skin surface. The psoas muscle lies at the front of your hip. It starts in your lower back, attaches to the base of your sacrum (triangular bone that forms the bottom of your spine and the back part of your pelvis) on the inner surface of your ilium (the upper and widest part of the pelvis/hip bone) and ends on the top of your femur (thigh bone). The iliacus starts from your hip bone/ilium, and attaches across to the inner surface of your lower spine and sacrum. It also ends at the top of your femur. Both of these muscles come together via the same tendon (thick, fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone) and attach to the bump on the inside of the shaft of your femur (the lesser trochanter) - this is where most injuries occur.

Dear MendMeShop,

Just had to share my story. My son who was 17 years old at the time he's now 18, was complaining of pain in both his knees. We took him to the Dr who told us he had torn cartilage in both knees and would need arthroscopic surgery on both knees to take out the torn cartilage. At this young age I did not want him to loose what cartilage he had as it leads to other problems when you get older. The orthopedic surgeon wanted to do surgery right away before more damage was done. He had surgery on his left knee and they took out 35% of his cartilage. I went to the internet for help ,hoping there was a better way to solve his problem in his other knee. That's when I found the Mend me shop. I showed the articles to his Surgeon and told him I wanted to try it before he had more surgery done. He said it was probably just another internet scam but I went ahead and ordered it anyway sine they have a 60 day return policy. What did we have to lose, nothing. To my surprise the inferno wrap took most of my son's pain, clicking and soreness away. His knee feels like new again and he's back to paying basketball. I have never responded to any product before but I feel strongly about these products, they really do work, I wish I had saved him from having surgery on his other knee. So if you are having the same issues give these products a try you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!!!!!!
