Dear MendMeShop,

Two years ago, after returning to the gym for the first time in over a decade, I developed intense lower back pain which radiated into my left hip and leg. I also developed snapping hip syndrome. After many expensive visits to a chiropractor and physical therapist, I gained some relief, but still experienced constant low level pain in the injured areas with episodes of intense debilitating pain which interfered with my sleep and work. After searching online for alternative and cost effective self treatment methods, I discovered your website and purchased your Back/Hip Inferno Wrap and Back/Hip Freezie Wrap. Within a short period of time of using these products, I noticed a huge reduction in pain. Two months later, the pain is barely noticeable, the snapping hip syndrome is an unpleasant memory and I feel that significant long term healing of chronic injuries is taking place. I absolutely LOVE your products, and enthusiastically recommend them to everyone I meet who is experiencing similar pain issues. Kudos to Paul and everyone in your customer service department which is beyond compare in terms of knowledge, promptness and genuine concern for your customers!

Treating Groin Pulls

Early diagnosis and proper treatment are important to prevent groin pulls from becoming chronic and potentially life-limiting; it doesn't take much to change a grade 1 pull into a grade 2 pull. Injuries to the muscle belly are best managed with adherence to the conservative treatment methods, which includes modifying and/or eliminating the activities that cause tenderness or discomfort in your groin area, and performing gentle strengthening and stretching once initial inflammation has gone down.

scar tissue forming

Scar tissue can often develop with groin pulls or strains, where your soft tissue has pulled away from the bone. As your damaged groin tissues heal this dead, fibrotic tissue will be produced instead of forming brand new healthy tissue. This tissue adheres to your muscle fibers, tendons, ligaments, fascia, nerves, and joints causing pain and preventing them from moving properly (this limits your range of motion, flexibility and strength). Injuries to the groin muscle-tendon attachments often requires more conservative management until you are pain free.

Patience is required with groin pulls, as they can take time to return to your normal state. Return to your activities too early can lead to chronic pain, which becomes much more difficult to treat. If your symptoms last for more than 6 weeks after trying conservative treatments, you will often be examined for other groin injuries such as tendinitis, stress fractures, osteitis pubis and/or groin disruptions.

Success Stories

Grade 1 groin pulls tend to take between 2-4 weeks, Grade 2 groin pulls between 1-2 months and Grade 3 groin pulls approximately 3 months. However, it is really dependent on whether you have an acute pull (4-8 weeks) or a chronic pull (can take up to 6 months), how long you've had the symptoms, and your commitment to proper rehabilitation. A good reference point for healing is once you've regained approximately 70% of your pre-injury strength, have full range of motion and are pain free, you can return to your normal activities.

Dear MendMeShop,

I am out there shooting the best scores of the season. I hurt my wrist, put you wrist Inferno wrap and the next marking period, 2 weeks, I was back to a 6 handicapper vs the 9 handicapper I was when I was hurt. I lent it to my director of golf that jammed his wrist. He was in serious pain. I gave him my wrist Inferno and in one day he was back to being a scratch golfer. It's the best therapy and the only one I WILL use from now on. I also have the shoulder Inferno. I had issues and guess what? No more issues! No surgery that was recommended to me because of you guys, period, like we say in NY. Awesome product thank you.
