Dear MendMeShop,

I am most satisfied with the products that I purchased. It is clearly high quality and I am positive it will heal my knee in the long run. I am really looking forward to getting my knee sorted out permanently. I did have a knee operation about two years ago but there were no time to give it a decent recovery time. Unfortunately as a mechanic working on the power plant here in Salerno, we work on gravel surfaces 24/7 for 85 days before returning home for a 3 week vacation. At the age of 53 it becomes real stress full and I also had to put away my running shoes, which was also a blow to me. I am very confident that your products will get me back on the road again and I would love to do the Comrades ultra marathon in South Africa for the third time.

Groin Pulls

Overstretching in sports can cause groin injuries

Up to 30% of sports medicine doctor visits are attributed to muscle strains, and groin injuries comprise 2 - 5 % of all sports injuries. A groin pull, also known as a groin strain, involves an injury to your groin, pelvic and hip muscles that help keep your legs together and flex your thigh. They are a result of excessive tension, effort or use, especially during activities that require running, kicking, twisting, or side-stepping. The damage can range from overstretching to partial tearing to complete rupturing of the small fibers that make up your groin and pelvis muscles. An adductor strain is one of the most common causes of groin pain in athletes. Most injuries occur at the junction between your muscle and your tendon; however they can occur in your muscle belly as well. A study performed by Renstrom and Peterson who analyzed groin strains in athletes, found that the adductor longus was responsible for 62% of groin injuries, and tends to be the most prone to injury (at the point where the muscle and tendon attach to the femur), followed by an injured gracilis muscle, rectus femoris, rectus abdominis, sartorius, and the iliopsoas.

Internationally, approximately 10% of all injuries endured by professional hockey players are groin strains (according to the Nicholas Institute of Sports Medicine and Athletic Trauma).

Dear MendMeShop,

The shoulder Inferno wrap seemed to help me. I used it consistently after my shoulder had already been injured for several months, after receiving no real help from 2 visits to orthopedist. I feel that the wrap plus doing my own physical therapy at home and time helped. I'm so thankful My SHOULDER Is FINALLY healed!!!
