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.

What Causes a Groin Pull?

Groin injuries can occur in any sport.

Groin pulls are among the most common groin injuries. These often result from a lot of stress placed on the groin muscles and tendons during active sports (hockey, basketball, soccer, football, rugby, tennis) or track & field activities (running, hurdles, long jump) that involve a lot of jumping, kicking, and changing direction at various speeds while running. Individual activities (skiing, skating, karate, weight lifting, gymnastics, ballet dancing and horse-back riding) can also put a lot of continuous pressure on the groin, especially if they involve a sudden fall or direct hit. During vigorous activities we often load our hip joint by up to eight times our body weight. However, even everyday activities that involve twisting or lifting heavy objects while bending or running on a slippery or unstable surface (like grass) can cause a groin pull.

overstretching the muscles can injure you groin muscles.

Adduction of the hip against forced abduction also causes a lot of injuries (when you are trying to bring your leg in towards your body, but something presses your leg away from your body), such as kicking against resistance or jumping.

Overstretching, overloading and overuse of your groin muscles occurs frequently especially when training competitively for the above activities, and/or swimming breaststroke (whip kick) on a regular basis. Your chances for injury are increased when you have not warmed-up and stretched properly before your activity, as your muscles arenŐt ready for the stress. If you are exercising or moving about in cold weather or are tired, you are putting yourself more at even more risk for an groin pull.

Success Stories

Weakness in your hip flexors, hip adductors and other groin muscles or strength differences in these muscles and/or your abdominal and lower back muscles can cause a force imbalance and result in a groin pull. If your muscles are tight or inflexible, this will make your situation worse.

You feet many also be adding injury to your goin.

Other biomechanical abnormalities (alignment issues, leg length discrepancies, over pronation or supination which affect the way you walk, or incorrect sport-specific motions) can put a lot of stress on the groin and result in groin pull.

Lack of exercise and changes in the intensity of your activity without proper preparation, age-related weaknesses and/or degeneration, previous groin injuries, and obesity will also influence your risk of experiencing groin pull.

Dear MendMeShop,

As you know the shoulder is a difficult area to Ice. Since I got my Freezie wrap, it has become so easy to do my treatments. I love it and use it daily. It has been huge in the progress I've been seeing. Thank you
